Having visited a number of whisky distilleries, and drank a fair share of Scottish malt whisky, it seemed only appropriate to design a new fabric based on this! During our most recent island adventure, we visited Islay and in particular the distilleries of Bruichladdie, Ardbeg and Bunnahabhain. Touring the stills, the warehouses and the sampling were all so enjoyable!
Recently I’ve been thinking of a design that encompasses my love of malt whisky. Eventually, I realised that it was the shape of all the different branded bottles that grabbed my attention: the tall bottles of Talisker from Skye or Glenlivet from the Spey valley; the curvy Jura; the slightly squat Bunnahabhain or Bruichladdie; the medium sized Highland Park from Orkney, to name but a few. After a few design swatches and revisions, I now have a pattern I am happy with. Production to start soon!
