INTRODUCING

Pinhook —

Artist Series

At Pinhook, we believe that whiskey is an inspiring muse. We see distilling as a beautiful science and blending and proofing as a true artform. The Pinhook Artist Series is an innovative experiment showcasing unique whiskey in limited quantities. To celebrate the individual expression of each bottling, Pinhook will partner with renowned artists to create original works for the label for the label inspired by the whiskey itself

Accidental Marriage

by Danica Novgorodoff

The first release in the Artist Series, “Accidental Marriage,” was created by chance when two of our Rye True Single Barrels — each ‘betrothed’ to separate stores — were inadvertently blended together. We were about to chalk up the barrels to bad luck until we actually tasted the mix up. What started as disappointment quickly shifted to wide eyes and big grins. The most delicious accident in Pinhook’s history had just kicked off a brand new series of releases. We commissioned Kentucky-based artist Danica Novgorodoff to make an artwork inspired by this creation story; her evocative watercolor is featured on the label.

When approached by Pinhook, I’d been doing a lot of botanical drawings lately (working on a picture book about a scientist/botanist/explorer/geologist from 1800), and thinking about the hybridizations of species and taxonomy... the marriage of different species that had been distinct for millions of years, because the wind blew some spores in a certain direction. There's an accidental marriage!
