The Art of Whisky Making

Artist resi­dency in Spey­side, Scotland.

Artis­a­nal manu­fac­ture of sin­gle malt whisky is con­side­red part of the Scot­tish cul­tu­ral heri­tage. Howe­ver, nowa­days most distil­le­ries pro­duce in an indus­trial scale using auto­ma­ted sys­tems and working 247.

This gra­phic repor­tage was initia­ted to show how an artis­a­nal, human-scale distil­lery works. Ope­ra­ted by only three peo­ple in a res­to­red farm buil­ding, the distil­lery that hos­ted me during the resi­dency relies solely on the skill of their team to craft the whisky.

We matched their atti­tude with my own artis­a­nal approach of on-loca­tion docu­men­tary dra­wing: Focus­sing on por­tray­ing craft­speo­ple in their workspace, depic­ting the making of a tra­di­tio­nal pro­duct step by step, from grain to glass.

This pro­ject was sup­ported by the Spi­rit of Spey­side Whisky Fes­ti­val, and was exhi­bi­ted in the muni­ci­pa­lity of Bal­lind­al­loch and at the Uni­ver­sity of the Arts Lon­don | Cen­tral Saint Martins.
