Tobermory Distillery shares its island home with art colouring book

Tobermory Distillery is bringing the Isle of Mull to the homes of gin and whisky lovers, with the launch of a new adult colouring book.

Budding artists can add a new dimension to their tasting experience, colouring views of the distillery’s natural surroundings while sipping a gin and tonic or a dram of whisky from the Hebrides.

The Tobermory Colour Gin booklet contains 10 carefully hand-drawn illustrations by talented artist, Lydia Bourhill inspired by the idyllic island: from dramatic scenery to the famous multicoloured harbour. Lydia has worked closely with the distillery before, drawing colourful sketches of cocktails and perfect serves to mark Tobermory Gin’s launch last year.

As well as capturing views of Mull, the limited edition colouring book also transport artists into the island’s 220-year old distillery – with a drawing of its John Dore & Co copper pot gin still.

Adult colouring-in books have surged in demand in recent months, with one publisher reporting sales of their core range up by 350% on the previous year. 

Amy Burns, Global Marketing Manager at Tobermory Distillery said:

“Our colourful home on the island of Mull is ample inspiration for those looking to keep up the enriching, artistic hobbies many have started in lockdown.

“It’s thanks to this nourishing artistic community and the island’s stunning natural beauty that Tobermory Distillery is expressive by nature, and this is reflected in the spirits we craft – whether that is the rich palate of hand-picked botanicals which define our gin or the unique characteristics of our single malts, which come in the form of a heavily peated Ledaig or vibrant and un-peated Tobermory whisky.

“It is this expressive creativity which formed the inspiration for our colouring in books, designed to let you relax, unwind and unlock your artistic passions over a gin and tonic or dram of whisky.”

The booklets can be purchased for £5 with a bottle of Tobermory Gin at www.tobermorydistillery.com.
