Here in Colorado the winter’s snow is finally melting and the mountain run-off is starting to rush the rivers – the water running cold and fast. One of my favorite spots in the mountains is called The Grottos, an amazing spot off Independence Pass, where the river shows its strength and erodes gigantic boulders to its path. These lines always remind me how beauty can come from challenges, and how something that seems easily contained can have immeasurable strength to shape the world around it.
Last summer I took my friend, Victoria Wright, to this spot and we spend the day picnicking, hiking through the Ice Caves, and enjoying a dram or two of the Glenfiddich Project XX. It was a dreamy day, and she captured it so beautifully in her photographs.
The Glenfiddich Project XX is from the experimental series from the notable distillery, and was an interesting project where the twenty international brand ambassadors selected their favorite barrels from the barrel house, and they were then blended together to create a rich, creamy, and chocolaty dram. A few years back, I too was able to select a barrel from the Glenfiddich warehouse an amazing experience to say the least.
I had nothing to do with creating the Project XX (obviously), but I do appreciate working with great brands that help me bring my visions to life – so thanks to Glenfiddich for supporting me and my creative endeavors once again.
