The best collaborations are those that seems so obvious you can't believe they didn't exist previously. And a new project that sees Sir Quentin Blake draw illustrations for series of whiskies based on Macbeth is one such collaboration, as the artist's signature style lends itself perfectly to depictions of witches, kings and murderers.

Sir Blake was originally reluctant to take on the packaging design project, but project mastermind Lexi Burgess, working under his new venture, Livingstone, was able to convince the illustrator by suggesting that he depict each of the featured characters as anthropomorphic birds.
