A Visual Exploration of Glenmorangie Whisky by The Gourmand

  • Posted 19 months Ago

Award-winning food journal The Gourmand has produced a short film and photographic series exploring the expansive tastes of Glenmorangie's core range of single malt whiskies.

The series was conceived by The Gourmand's co-founder and editor-in-chief, David Lane, who worked with set designer Sarah Parker to produce something more akin to visiting an art gallery than watching a blockbuster movie. "Like the whiskies they represent, it invites some reflection," says Lane. "My aim was to make something as sensorially interesting as the real life experience of tasting the whiskies, to present, untypically, what it is to actually sample Glenmorangie. Approaching taste visually is a way to reach those who might not normally consider a great whisky’s complex make-up. It should also intrigue those who already know and admire them."

Glenmorangie Original, Glenmorangie Lasanta, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban and Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or are each represented, interpreted individually and presented in an unfamiliar, fantastic fashion.

Watch the short film above and take a look at the photography series below.

The Glenmorangie Original: This whisky's complexity and complimentary tastes, from peach to vanilla, are demonstrated with a web-like sculpture which houses the multifarious aspects of the whisky's flavour composition, demonstrating their relationship to one another.

The Glenmorangie Lasanta: The deep warmth of this whisky are shown through a growing light, conveying the sense of sizzling spice and dried fruits.

The Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban: A circular sculpture was broken in half, showing that the two parts of this whisky are in fact quite different, with hints of orange peel and dark chocolate blending with flavours reminiscent of Turkish delight.

The Glenmorangie Nectar D’Or: Layered glass shelves holding beautifully stylised pastries display the coconut, lime, and caramel elements of this extra-matured whiskey.
