Here’s a selection of labels drawn for a wonderful commission by Sansibar Whisky in 2018 to draw 380+ whisky labels for a bottling of 1976 Speyside malt.
I’m sharing some of the labels which are very dear to me, starting with scenes below from my window here in the old orchards of the Clyde Valley.
The world heritage site New Lanark and a few of the chimneys of old Lanark is just up the road from us.
Dalserf – a tiny and beautiful village hidden away from the main road backing on to the River Clyde.
Pettinain, another tiny South Lanarkshire village with my sister-in-law posting a letter.
The Black Isle has been a holiday destination for us for years. My husband’s mother came from Inverness and here are her grandchildren running around Marine Terrace, Cromarty.
A trip to St Kilda was a once in a lifetime experience. Not only did we have clear blue skies with views for miles, but three hours to wander around the abandoned settlement on Hirta – such a remote and mysterious island.
We live just outside Lanark, where we are almost equidistant between Edinburgh and Glasgow. Here are a few label images of the two cities.
Last of all, a few labels from further north. These are moments from some of the many trips that we have made over the years to walk in the mountains, visit the islands, enjoy music festivals and fish and chips!
