When I first experienced the enchanting beauty of Scotland in 2000, I was compelled to return and create a more comprehensive body of work. Although the project took some time to materialise, it was the allure of well-crafted, exceptional single malt Scotch whisky that ultimately motivated me.

From March 2022 to September 2023, I embarked on a journey through the Speyside, Highlands, Campbeltown, Lowlands, Islands, and Islay regions. Throughout this expedition, I explored distilleries, capturing images of the surrounding landscapes—landscapes enveloped in the distinctive Scotch mist, a testament to the remarkable single malts produced by these distilleries.
