Skotch and Sketch at The Glasshouse, Edinburgh

Dickie Concession head to a Skotch and Sketch workshop at The Glasshouse in Edinburgh to sample your latest dose and try your hand at drawing.

Picture the scene. It’s a warm, intermittently sunny evening, you’re on a stunning rooftop garden, sipping a whiskey cocktail, and then you’re asked to draw a still life.

Well, that was the scenario I found myself in at The Glasshouse’s Skotch and Sketch workshop in Edinburgh recently, and I have to say it was excellent.

Produced to showcase YTL’s new Glenborrodale by Adelphi whisky, this blended malt is the second batch created by Adelphi for the hotel group.

When you taste the whisky, you can immediately taste the elements they wanted to infuse. Notes of salt, caramel, sparkle, and a smoothness that makes this my kind of dram.

While sipping whiskey, artist Liana Moran, whose work already graces the hotel’s hallways, tried to spark guests’ creativity in a relaxed and informative art workshop.

Our task was to draw one of the whiskey bottles next to a glass of whiskey, some barley, thistles and a rose, using pencil, fountain pens and charcoal.

It was fun to get creative, but the star of the show was still the whisky. I highly recommend a visit to The Glasshouse to try their newest single malt.
