The Art of Whisky

$ 24.95

 This amazing celebration of single malt Scotch takes a unique photographic perspective that highlights the nature of the spirits in startlingly beautiful ways. The Art of Whisky is a breathtaking and unusual gift book for whisky connoisseurs, celebrating the spirit from an unexpectedly beautiful angle. By chance, award-winning photographer Ernie Button noticed the intricate patterns formed in the residue at the bottoms of (almost) empty whisky glasses—each as different as a snowflake—and began photographing them with inventive lighting techniques.

The resulting images are exquisitely gorgeous, evoking earthly landscapes and extraterrestrial visions. This book collects nearly 100 of those photos—each one more amazing than the last—and features delightful touches such as tasting notes, information on the science of what we’re seeing, and writing about single malt Scotch by Scotland’s leading whisky expert Charles MacLean, commissioned exclusively for this book. 

Ernie Button is an award-winning photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona, whose work has been exhibited in the United States, China, Scotland, and Europe. His photographs have been featured in National Geographic Magazine, The New York Times, Whisky Advocate, American Photo, Popular Photography, Esquire, Wired, Smithsonian, Whisky Quarterly, and Popular Mechanics, as well as on limited edition packaging for The Macallan.
