Artist Alice Angus:
“I went to Brora just after a big storm in February. I spent the bright, freezing daylight hours outside from dawn to dusk, watching, listening and drawing until ice froze the paint. When asked to choose a distillery, for The Distillers’ Art Limited, I was drawn to Clylenish on the north east coast, because of the combination of people, history, landscape and wildlife. As I sat there all kinds life was going on, trucks, tractors, dog walkers, traffic, the East Coast train whistle, the rhythmic puffing of the distillery at work, it’s steam rising against the hills, sheep, cattle, peewits, and a raven kronking as it chased a squeeling buzzard. I was struck by the magnificent skein of Greylag Geese that came honking and barking in from the coast, loudly announcing their arrival, flying low over the flat coastal plain of dykes, ditches and fields, sunlit against the wall of snow dusted mountains. They headed towards the gleaming, puffing distillery, nestled at the base of the hills from where the Clynemilton burn brings its golden water to make the whisky.”
Whisky Curator George Thomson:
“The painting of Clynelish nestled in the valley just outside the coastal town of Brora draws you in to the stunning beauty of the Highlands.”
