In 2016 Glengoyne Distillery has commissioned John Lowrie Morrison, better known as Jolomo, to paint a collection of seasonal paintings inspired by Glengoyne Distillery.
Each of four paintings will be printed on limited edition of Glengoyne 10 years old gift tins and released annually with the distillery making a donation to the Mackintosh Campus Appeal to help the Glasgow School of Art recover from the consequences of the 2014 fire in the Mackintosh building. The initial release ‘Autumn Moon over Glengoyne’ was launched in October 2016. Third in the series of limited bottlings featuring artwork called ‘Spring Blossoms at Glengoyne Distillery’ was released in the late 2018.
