Liz Perry

Liz Perry Abstract Art

"My artwork is frequently produced as an abstraction of a theme. Most often artwork is produced in Acrylic paint with mixed media and sometimes expressed in relief/monotype print, too. Recently, I've been exploring ideas from my surroundings. The local coastline is beautiful and a rich source of inspiration for artwork in both paint and print. Cards, giclee limited prints and original artwork in paint and print."


Event offer:

"I'm offering an online discount on 2, writing related, artworks during the event. They're my abstract expression of the everyday 'story telling' that goes on within communities of people. The gossip and rumour that circulates, at various levels of truth and fantasy. Acrylic works on box canvas, with Asemic writing. Rumour Machine 1 & 2, normally, £240 each, including UK shipping, they are discounted to £180 each, including UK shipping, for The Autumn Kist Online Showcase only."

Ninefold Distillery

Ninefold Distillery

Ninefold Distillery is the south of Scotland’s first, and only, rum distillery. Artisanal, small batch rum is made from scratch from sugar cane molasses in a converted cattle byre on Dormont Home Farm, in Dumfries & Galloway. The fermentation of the molasses, double distilling on a Scottish-made copper pot still, cask ageing, bottling and labelling are all done on site, making Ninefold rum an authentically Scottish spirit.

"Our unaged Pure Single Rum is smooth and creamy, and full of flavour. Great for cocktails, or even sipping on its own. The newly released cask aged single rum, limited to just 246 bottles, has spent a year in a virgin oak cask and at cask strength it has plenty of toffee, butterscotch and dark chocolate notes. Great for enjoying neat with some ice."

Event offer:

£5 off any order from 10am 2nd - 10pm 5th October, use KIST5 as the code at www.NinefoldDistillery.com/shop
