For our cover feature, Melodie Leung, Director at Zaha Hadid Architects, takes us on an exclusive look behind the scenes of their innovative global practice and discusses the concepts and process behind The Dalmore Luminary No. 2.

Laphroaig delights us with four alternative summer cocktails recipes, crafted by the creative bartenders at Satan's Whiskers (London), Porter & Rye (Glasgow) and Esti (London). Peaty Palomas and firecracker fruitiness for sun-drenched summer gatherings.

Having switched from working in Scotch whisky to English whisky, she tells us about the freedom of experimentation allowed outside of Scottish whisky regulations.

Sampling their three new core expressions, and staying in the town of Cullen, guest writer Robyn Gilmour sums up what makes the remote distillery to intriguing to whisky fans.
