In March 2015 I was approached by Seán Sills, Masterprinter at Distillers Press, NCAD, Dublin. He was set to retire after thirty years and I was honoured when he asked if I would be interested in working on one of his last projects at the facility. It being the ‘Distillers’ Press, located on the former site of the old Powers Distillery (John’s Lane), and considering the incredible revival and level of interest Irish whiskey is enjoying, I thought it appropriate that the project should centre on the amber nectar itself.

I researched, wrote, designed and ultimately produced, six letterpress prints in a limited edition of twenty.
