Commission

Society Squirrel was a commission from the Canadian branch of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

It was created to celebrate the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s entry into the Canadian market, and to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society organization. My clients wanted a red squirrel (known for their lovely long ears), acting as a bartender, pouring a dram for a Society member. The bottling rendered in this paintings is the SMWS 30th Anniversary  bottling 72.32 (Miltonduff 1983 SMWS 72.32 Single Malt, details below), from Speyside, Scotland.

Also incorporated into the piece is their mascot, a moose named RT. He is wearing a kilt made of the Mackenzie tartan, the pattern after one of the proprietors’ clan family. The moose also doubles to distinguish itself as uniquely Canadian. Read More.
