Pairing Whiskey with Words
We are pairing Constance’s letters on paper from this book with Whiskey – yes poeple whiskey. When I asked Constance (love her name) what she would like to have in the studio wine, tea, coffee…she said whiskey. I bought a variety of airplane bottles and displayed them along with small sipping dessert glasses with stems in a multitude of colours, sides of coke, Ginger ale and water and we just drank them neat. I had these stored in the freezer until she arrived so they were also chilled.
