MACBETH V MACBETH
Max Bennett is fresh from an acclaimed performance as Macbeth at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Alexis Burgess is the pioneer and brains behind a dazzling Scotch whisky collection — 42 bottles featuring every character from Shakespeare’s bloody tragedy. The two Macbeths sat down for Barley to talk (and sip) drams, dreams and the curse of the Scottish play.
It’s a woodpecker offering you a dram. I was given an old postcard of a woodpecker in a dinner jacket holding a tray of drinks and the analogy struck me – a small, nimble creature that could dart into a warehouse, peck at a cask, and bring out a dram for you. It’s light, and quick, and hopefully generous too (the woodpecker pre-dates the Macbeth collection by some time, which is surprising given how much birds feature in our first project).
