Whisky Focus - The BenRiach Teams Up With Scottish Menswear Designer Kestin Hare

The BenRiach Teams Up With Scottish Designer Kestin Hare

3rd July 2018
The BenRiach distillery has teamed up with innovatively creative Scottish menswear designer Kestin Hare to promote some of the best Scotland has to offer.

Scottish model Jamie Walker models a Kestin Hare creation which he designed in collaboration with The BenRiach distillery.

It is always great to see quality Scottish brands collaborating to promote the best that Scotland has to offer and on this occasion The BenRiach distillery in Speyside has teamed up with Scottish menswear designer Kestin Hare in a partnership which will celebrate the creative approaches to whisky distilling and clothing design.

To mark the collaboration, Kestin Hareís 2019 Spring Collection will feature five different garments inspired by the whisky, landscape and architecture of the BenRiach distillery in Speyside.

Hare has teamed up with Scottish mill, Halley Stevenson, to develop traditional peat dyed and garment dyed products, representing the unique colours of aged BenRiach Speyside Whisky. Dundee-based Halley Stevenson has garment dyed the Shop Coat to colour reference two BenRiach expressions, the 10 year old peated Curiositas and four cask matured 21 year old non-peated whisky.

Kestin Hare peat dyed garment inspried by the tradional methods of the BenRiach distillery whisky distillation.

Hare also took inspiration from the BenRiach whisky casks and created a digital cask print in a lightweight ripstop nylon featuring on the Torness Parka, Traveller Jacket, Fatigue Short and Storr Pant.

BenRiach Global Brand Ambassador, Stewart Buchanan said:

"At BenRiach we have been exploring the creative possibilities of our Speyside malt for decades. Driven by a creative approach to whisky distilling, cask maturation and blending, all in the pursuit of flavour, we are delighted to join forces with Kestin Hare menswear to create experimental, hand-crafted, whisky inspired products for 2019. The garments are inspired by our eclectic mix of cask types and two of our distinct styles of Scottish whisky, heavily peated 10 year old Curiositas and four cask matured 21 year old non-peated."

Founder of Scottish Menswear Brand, Kestin Hare said:

"Iím a big fan of weaving in Scottish heritage into my collections, and when I went to visit the BenRiach distillery I was so charmed by the process, the whisky, the people and the location, it gave me lots to play with. I think we have developed a high impact capsule collection with real depth and meaning to the story. The colours and textures are beautiful and the garment dyed element ensures that every garment has a unique finish which I think is a nice touch."

The rather innovatively creative Kestin Hare designed products will be available to purchase both online and in store from end of February 2019 and of course you will find the current BenRiach whisky range as well as their recently released BenRiach Single Cask Batch 15 available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
