Speyside single malt BenRiach invites you to kickstart the Burns weekend with a twist by exploring the vibrant palette of its multi-layered Scotch whisky. Hear about the creative art of whisky-making and take part in an interactive 'painting by tasting notes' session hosted by Dr. Rachel Barrie and award-winning contemporary landscape artist Ellis O'Connor.
BenRiach is renowned for sourcing some of the most experimental and eclectic casks in the world for its maturation process to produce its delicious, multi-layered flavour. To explore the vibrant palette of this single malt, they've teamed up with award-winning contemporary landscape artist Ellis O’Connor who has created a collection of paintings inspired by the tasting notes of its signature malt - the BenRiach 10 yr old.
During the evening you'll hear about the creative whisky-making process from BenRiach Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie herself, before being guided through an in-depth, deconstructed tasting of whiskies from each cask used to mature the BenRiach Aged 10 Years including Virgin Oak, Sherry and Bourbon. Ellis O’Connor will also exhibit her Palette of BenRiach collection for the first time ever, and share how she brought the BenRiach Aged 10 Years to life on canvas by exploring the different casks used to mature this single malt, as well as the distillery’s landscape.
You'll then have the chance to put brush to canvas yourself as you’re guided through an interactive painting masterclass with Ellis, exploring the palette of BenRiach.
Tickets include a welcome cocktail, tasting of four whiskies and your own canvas painting to take home - signed by Ellis O’Connor and Dr. Rachel Barrie.
