A new single malt expression of The Sexton Irish whiskey has been launched to market, with a photography exhibition taking place in Dublin to accompany the release.
The photography exhibition will take place in the Project Arts Centre, Dublin, on Thursday 18th July 2019. Part performance, part cultural reportage, part photo challenge, The Sexton Own The Night Photography Exhibition invites visitors to witness the night unfolding across multiple cities.
The photography exhibition will showcase talent from all over Ireland and beyond with photos that capture the spirit of the night. Irish and international photographers will display their own interpretations across multiple cities and landscapes.
The event is also open to other photographers, both amateur and professional, who will have a chance to have their photos included in the exhibition. Each entrant is tasked with capturing a range of events and locations in their own personal style, featuring scenes from across Ireland. The brief is to demonstrate how they ‘Own The Night’ with their camera, to capture the essence of their city, or aspects of their city, as night falls.
Successful photos will be displayed on multiple mediums within the space; including print, digital screens and projection.
As well as the exhibition, guests will be welcomed into a sensory tasting experience of The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey. Here, with their vision dimmed by the low lights, visitors’ senses will be heightened while tasting the single malt. In the gallery space, guests can view the photography collection whilst enjoying a selection of The Sexton cocktails.
Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.
The Sexton Single Malt is aged exclusively in Oloroso sherry casks and is rich in hue with an approachable taste designed for use in cocktails.
Master Blender Alex Thomas commented: “The nature of this exhibition will provide a unique insight into the night and will beautifully document the restless nature of urban life after dark. The Sexton challenges photographers to ‘Own The Night’ and will play around with styles, subjects and situations, much like I do behind the scenes during the creative blending process – so I expect The Sexton Whiskey and photography to forge a powerful connection on the night.”
The Sexton is available in high-end bars, restaurants and lounges as well as fine wine and spirits shops for a suggested retail price of €40.
