MoonBeams #2: The "Where's the snail?" podcast. Food and whisky: an illustrator's inspiration.

Duration : 42 minutes

Artist Amanda Loverseed, best selling creative for Pheonix Trading, explains to Rosemary how food inspires her work and how whisky is a new taste experience for her.

Amanda's Facebook page is here and this is a video of her at home and working.

We tasted AnCnoc 12yo Speyside single malt from Inver House Distillers first, and then Caol Isla, part of Diageo's single malt whisky portfolio. Our final whisky was another - but very different - Speyside single malt, the GlenDronach 15yo Revival, which we tried with Dean's of Huntley's Crème Caramel biscuits. You can read my review of GlenDronach's Revival by browsing here.
