Whisky Meets Art - Glenfiddich Artist In Residence Contest

Whisky can encompass many things and it is great to see when the distilleries and corporate biddies that run then get involved in the Arts. William Grant & Sons is one of the family owned companies that embrace craftsmanship and the arts throughout their distilleries values.

Right now, from the 10th Sep until the 13th Sep, Sydney locals can head over to the Carriageworks in Eveleigh for the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair to catch a glimpse of the 7 finalists for Artists In Residence Contest. don’t think this is just your average gallery display because the Glenfiddich pop-up bar will be in amongst the art work serving up drams. Glenfiddich Artist in Residence curator Andy Fairgrieve will also be on hand to discuss the artworks and lead a panel of judges in who takes home the grand prize.

What does the winner receive? A 3 month internship at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Scotland called at $21,000. Live the craft, make the craft, drink the craft.
