Hawley extols joys of whisky-making

26 November, 2010

Two new tracks by singer-songwriter Richard Hawley have been released through Glenfiddich’s UK website.

The tracks are the final two on the Dufftown Songs EP, inspired by the whisky-making process Hawley witnessed on a trip to the distillery.

As well as the free downloads, fans of the artist and the whisky can enter a competition to win tickets for a live show at the Albannach bar in London’s Trafalgar Square on December 6.

The website also features exclusive footage of Hawley in the studio.

Hawley said: “I get my inspiration from a wide range of places, so it’s been a real challenge to capture and convey the magical way Glenfiddich transforms water into whisky.

“The live performance is going to be really exciting. These are complex and innovative tracks which will be a challenge to pull off live.”

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
