Greg Coulton's Oak Devil Illustration
September 15, 2015
Greg Coulton was commissioned to create a hand drawn illustration for the launch of The Dublin Liberties Oak Devil Irish Whiskey. The commission for Quintessential Brands Group's latest whiskey is the first of a series of three unique whiskeys for the Liberties range due to be released this year.
The name is inspired by the Liberties area of Dublin – a part of the city known as ‘Hell’ during the 18th century. It is said an oak-carved devil once stood watch over the entrance to the Liberties but disappeared after some time and according to legendary tales, the carving was made into whiskey barrels “its dark power subsuming and infusing the maturing spirit”.
