Just a Wee Dram
For some, the perfect picture is an oak cask quietly aging a fine, single malt Scotch. We're sure that Scottish frame makers Kristen and Ross Hunter would agree. Their photo frames are crafted from segments of retired whisky (no e in Scotland) barrels, each a one-of-a-kind snapshot of the craftsmanship and individual history of the cask. The design utilizes the elegant curve of the original barrel for a freestanding frame (also includes wall-mounting hardware on the back).
The back displays two cask characteristics: the charred lining that imparts much of the flavor and color to the whisky, and the croze—the groove that holds the head of the barrel. The front features a window for a 4 x 6 photo, held in place with copper screws on a background of Harris tweed. As the frame is made from reclaimed, weathered casks, textures and overall dimensions will vary slightly, making each one truly unique. Handmade in Edinburgh, Scotland, once home to eight licensed distilleries and hundreds of unofficial stills.
Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
