For the second instalment in their annual ‘Artist Series’, Ballantine’s (the world’s No 2 Scotch whisky) have teamed up music video director and photographer Dave Ma to design a series of limited edition bottles and tins for brand’s Finest and 12 Year Old blends. Ma, who has worked with the likes of Foals, A$AP Rocky, Diplo, Skrillex, Bastille and Rudimental, shot a series of images at 8,000 feet above the Scottish Highlands, where the whisky is made. He then manipulated those images digitally, to create the cool, distinctive designs that now cover the Ballantine’s gift packs. We went up to the Scotland, to visit the Ballantine’s distillery, and spoke to Ma about what inspiration he got from the Highlands, and the adrenaline rush you get from hanging out of a helicopter taking photos.
