This Holiday Season, Nick Offerman Swaps Pinot Grigio for Lagavulin Whisky in an Anything But Average Art Class

The Newest Video in the ‘Lagavulin: My Tales of Whisky’ Series Toasts the Fine Art of Whisky

NOT YOUR AVERAGE ART CLASS (November 17, 2021) – Nick Offerman and Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch are putting a whisky-inspired spin on ‘Paint & Pour’ nights with the latest installment from the ‘Lagavulin: My Tales of Whisky’ series that portrays the iconic Yule Log scene in a new medium – art. In the latest holiday spot, ‘Dram & Draw,’ Nick Offerman jests with the paint n’ sip phenomenon by breaking out his easel and a bottle of Lagavulin to embrace the fine art of whisky.

The new spot features Offerman at his weekly art class with fellow amateur painters, where he wisely persuades the class to ditch the long stems in favor of his favorite drink, a dram of Lagavulin 16 Year Old. This simple swap unlocks a higher plane of artistic audacity amongst the class.* Offerman’s own painting is a retrospective self-portrait that revisits a fireside scene from the now-classic Holiday 2015 Yule Log video as an homage to the longstanding friendship between Nick Offerman and Lagavulin.

‘I had no idea what an incredible painter I was until I wielded my brushes with the warm support of my favorite dram,’ commented Nick Offerman.

Lagavulin will follow up the hero ‘Dram & Draw’ video with a second piece of holiday content starring Offerman, which will launch on the live-streaming service Twitch. ‘Dram & Draw’ Part 2 will air during a live experience on December 8th from 6 to 8pm EST during the Crown Channel’s Wednesday Fight Night Show.

*Although Lagavulin will not actually make you a better artist, it will surely bring holiday cheer to you and yours, especially when sipped responsibly.
