Steeped in centuries of legend and surrounded by dramatic Scottish Highland scenery, the village of Aberlour lies where the Lour burn joins the River Spey. The exceptionally pure, soft spring water used for making Aberlour whisky is drawn from nearby natural springs.

The old distillery gate is shown above. The keystone was left blank so that an ancient celtic image could be projected. The nature imagery is wallpaper.
I also painted the 2 tower structures suspending the wheel.
Here is the gate being installed by the production crew:
And the gate in progress:
