Pucker up people it’s just a week away, yep Valentine’s Day is just around the corner…
In the timely manner you’ve come to expect from us, we’ve put together a guide of our perfect day – feel free act it out for real – it pretty damn good!
WHAT TO BUY:
DRINK: Bulleit Frontier Whiskey: Limited release Tattoo Edition bottle
Bulleit Frontier Whiskey is in our opinion a gift from the Bourbon Gods, that distinctive bold, spicy taste, plus 3 gold medals and 2 double gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition don’t lie. And now they’ve gone and made it even better with this limited release Tattoo Edition bottle, the perfect gift for any bourbon drinker!
Bringing a taste of the US to the UK, the Bulleit Bourbon Tattoo Edition Bottle has been created in collaboration with Jess Mascetti, the renowned tattoo artist from East Side Ink, New York. Inspired by her native home of New York and pays homage to the community and city that raised her, Jess’ design has been printed directly onto the iconic Bulleit Bourbon bottle. The unique Bulleit Bourbon Tattoo Edition will be available to buy from Amazon UK priced at £27.40.
The collaboration marks the first time the Bulleit bottle has ever been altered, transforming the American frontier-inspired bottles into pieces of collectable modern art heroing the worldwide tattoo culture. Each bottle hosts a label which hangs around its neck featuring a scannable QR code to access an interactive augmented reality experience, bringing Jess’s design to life digitally.
The limited bottle release is part of Bulleit’s Frontier Works series – an ongoing platform that aims to celebrate creative individuals and artisans on the cultural frontier.
CIGAR: Cohiba Maduro 5 Secretos
Not many words are needed for this king of cigars. Put simply one of the finest small cigars in production. While it only has so much room to evolve, it counteracts its petite format with massive amounts of flavour. Full, bittersweet, dark chocolate notes dominate throughout, though spats of spice and charcoal can be noted intermittently also. A delicious little smoke with an espresso. Hits the spot.
