Burns Night With BenRiach Painting By Tasting Notes

17th January 2020
Fancy toasting Scotland's national bard at a Burns Night tasting event with a artistic BenRiach twist.

Burns Night With BenRiach Painting By Tasting Notes - A bottle of BenRiach 10 in Ellis O'Connor's art studio.

With Burns Night fast approaching I am certain that a few of you will be looking for a good dram to celebrate the occasion whether you will be dancing the night away, tucking into a plate of Haggis & Neeps at a Burns supper, or simply sitting by the fire and raising a glass of Scotland's finest whisky to celebrate Scotland's national bard, Rabbie Burns birthday.

If you will be in or around London during the Burn's weekend celebrations here is a slightly different event on the 24th January which you may enjoy "Painting by tasting notes with BenRiach" which is part of DrinkUp.London's Scotch Whisky Weekend.

The Burns weekend with a twist will be exploring the vibrant palette of BenRiach's multi-layered Scotch single malt whisky. You will 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 year 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 which are priced at only £10 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.

The "Painting by tasting notes with BenRiach" will take place at TT Liquor, 17B Kingsland Rd, London, E2 8AA on Friday 24th January between 18.00-20.45. Tickets are available from www.eventbrite.co.uk

If you cant make it along to the event don't worry you can still toast Scotland's bard with a BenRiach single malt, you will find the current BenRiach whisky range as well as some special releases available to buy at specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
