'2.81' by Chrissa Amuah for Mortlach By Design
2.81 is named in honor of Mortlach’s bold flavour, poignant history, and the number of times that Mortlach whisky is distilled. In 1897, when Dr. Alexander Cowie formulated the 2.81 distillation process, he did so knowing that this wasn’t the typical way. In following his instinct, he created something daring and new. ‘The Way’ is said to be like having three distilleries at one still house; in parallel, the 2.81 light fixture is designed with many conceptual, physical and material layers, which when unified stand as a beautifully complex light fixture.
