In honour of the UK release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Scotch Whisky Experience Visitor Assistant Mike Doherty has selected some of his favourite themed Instagram posts featuring some classic Scotch whiskies that perfectly fit the bill. We hope you’ll agree they are pretty darn cool too…
“It’s that time of year again when whisky lovers are hoping to receive the perfect dram for their Christmas. For the movie lovers, the excitement is all about finding out more about Rey, Finn and Luke Skywalker in the biggest movie event of the year – Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
With that in mind, you can imagine my delight in discovering a whisky enthusiast and photographer, with a self proclaimed ‘Star Wars problem’…
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, Brett Ferencz (aka The Scotch Trooper) has been combining his love of whisky and Star Wars brilliantly, in a series of photographs that have to be seen to be believed.
Here are some of my favourite posts from the Scotch Trooper Instagram feed (embedded with full permission, naturally)…
5. The Forest Moon of Balvenie
4. This is Not the Droid You’re Looking For (however it IS a triple cask…)
3. Step Away From the Laphroaig
2. Christmas on a Starkiller base
1. Winter Storm (Troopers)
We’ll be hoping to welcome the Scotch Trooper to the Scotch Whisky Experience one day, but for now, do check out www.instagram.com/scotchtrooper for more great whisky photos.
May the whisky be with you…”
