The Glenlivet has collaborated with designer Gareth Neal to create The Glenlivet Nàdurra Dram Chair. Gareth Neal is an award-winning designer and furniture maker who creates remarkable pieces using natural materials.
The Dram Chair is designed to highlight the artisanal methods used to produce Nàdurra. Taking his influences from 19th century processes, Gareth has crafted the chair entirely by hand using premium oak, copper and leather which echo the natural materials found in the Nàdurra casks.
You could be forgiven for thinking it looks a bit like a camping chair, and there is a reason for this. Gareth felt that the best place to enjoy a glass of The Glenlivet, after a trip to the Glen, was sitting beside a river, hence the portable outdoor-style of the chair.
"The idea of the chair is to capture your idea of escapism and take you to a place that is your own to have a dram, your mind still, and see it unfold in front of you," says Gareth.
A nice idea, but at £6,200 each, I'd rather spend the money on whisky! Have a look at the movie below and decide for yourself.
