Our new Botanicals show launched on Friday March 23rd with a wonderful preview evening in partnership with Byron’s Gin. Crafted at local Speyside Distillery, it’s the official gin of the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland and comes in two expressions, Melancholy Thistle and Bird Cherry. The distillery’s artist in residence, Joanna McDonough, unveiled her two original botanical screen-prints created in honour of the two expressions. Our guests raised a glass to these and the other wonderful works in the exhibition by Gabriela Silveira. Nicola Laura Adams and Frances Ryan.
