Here are the details on each box:
Will arrive by Christmas
We’re bringing the distillery to your doorstep.
It’s simple: choose an unaged liquor or a cocktail, pour into the aging kit, wait 10 days, then taste the transformation. The aging process changes the character and flavor, mellowing the taste and letting new flavors shine just like with aged beer, whiskeys, and wines. And unlike traditional barreling techniques, the shape and size of this kit brings the wait down from months. Patience was never our virtue.
Barrel Aging Kit, Bespoke Post
Front and center in this all-things-included kit is a charred honeycomb barrel stave from the craftsman at the Black Swan Cooperage. The staves will impart deep new flavors to your go-to drink, with each subsequent use creating a softer and subtler finish than the last. The stave can be used up to 4-6 times and we’ve included an extra one since we know you’ll like ‘em so much. The 375ml glass vessel holds it as you sail your booze into the sublime. Once you’ve done the hard part of waiting, just pour out your creation through the included cheesecloth strainer and enjoy.
Cocktail Tumblers, Set of 2 in gift box, Sempli
A standard Old Fashioned glass is a sharp and timeless way to sip your booze, but sometimes you want something a bit more unique. Sempli’s version rolls with the punches as a more playful alternative to the classic tumbler shape. The glass is hand-blown from Italian lead-free crystal, and somehow makes drinking even more fun. Watch the liquid swirl as the glass swivels around in between sips — just make sure not to spill if you’ve had one too many.
See just how much better things can get with age.
Note – The box consists of the aging kit (glass bottle, cheesecloth strainer, one barrel stave), one extra barrel stave, and 2 Sempli cocktail tumblers.
Will arrive by Christmas. Not available in Canada due to shipping restrictions
Dust off the history books and channel old Winston’s spirit with a good smoke. We’ve included the exclusive gear to help you light up in style — or accent your pad when not in use. You’ll be an aficionado in no time.
Cigar Set, E.P. Carrillo
A 4-pack of limited-edition cigars (secured in Boveda humipacks to ensure freshness) worthy of this box’s British namesake. They’re ordered from mild to full-bodied by one of the original gangsters of the cigar world: Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. He’s got tobacco in his blood — both his father and grandfather made cigar creation their life’s work in Cuba. Now Ernesto runs the operation, using his 40+ years of experience to make critically acclaimed cigars from the Dominican Republic. Here’s the breakdown:
Edición Limitada 2013, Original Variant
This is the top of the line from E.P. Carrillo — which is saying a lot. With a San Andres wrapper and incredibly fine tobacco rolled inside, it’s a full-bodied smoke that’s deceptively smooth.
Edición Limitada 2013, Unreleased Variant
This is the same blend as the Edición Limitada 2013, but with a natural Ecuadorian wrapper so that you can see how greatly the flavor is re-shaped. It’s an unreleased special edition that’s only available at E.P. Carillo company events, and now we’re bringing it to you.
Inaugural Limitada 2009
An experimental wrapper leaf — a limited-edition hybrid of aged leaves with several different seeds – makes this one extra special.
Family Blend #809
A custom-made edition that the family enjoys for their personal use. It’s never been released to the public due to the limited availability of the tobaccos used in the blend.
Reclaimed Wood Ashtray, Europe 2 You
Not only is this ashtray sharply designed out of reclaimed wood from historic, time-tested European buildings, but it doubles as a candle holder when you’re finished puffing. That way, you can keep it on display all day long. And with the handsome wood construction, we have a feeling you’re going to want to.
Candle, Bespoke Post
Add some class to your space, and give your reclaimed wood stand a new job for when it’s not cradling your top-shelf cigars. Plus, you can light it once you’re finished smoking to help diffuse the lingering tobacco haze.
Cedar Spills, 4 pack, Commonwealth
Forget the high-tech butane lighters that can alter a cigar’s natural taste with their fumes. Instead, use the method preferred by the pros and aficionados. The slow-burning wood lights a cigar with no residual flavors or aromas, so the depth of your cigar can shine just as its creator intended.
Cigar Cutter, Glenfiddich
Sharp in more ways than one. And it even matches the high-end scotch you’ve got on hand to enjoy with your smoke (right?)
Measure up to the legend with this smoky tribute to one of history’s greats.
What do you think of the December Bespoke Post options? My husband is intrigued by the Aged box, and the Churchill box will make an amazing gift for a friend so we’re getting both this month!
