Dom Pérignon, Lenny Kravitz Vintage 2008
Champagne lovers will be closely familiar with the Dom Pérignon 2008 Vintage. A strange summer was characterized by grey days before giving way to extended periods of sunshine. This unusual mix of weather made for a perfectly balanced blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Now, the special vintage has been made even more so by music legend Lenny Kravitz, who has designed a truly unique box for the 1.5L magnum bottle. The box has been inspired by snakeskin and brutalism and cleverly alters into a candelabra once used, ensuring its life extends far longer than the liquid’s.
Gordon & MacPhail, Mr George Centenary Whisky
This latest release from the Scotch whisky experts has been released to mark what would have been the 100th birthday of George Urquhart, a member of the second generation of the company’s owning family. The 52-year-old liquid was laid down in a hand-selected first fill Sherry Butt by Mr George himself during his first full year in the industry. The release is limited to just 235 bottles, each presented in an exquisite glass decanter and a wooden presentation case.
Baccarat, Everyday Classic Glass Set
A fine drink needs a glass to match, and in Baccarat you simply cannot go wrong. The world-renowned crystal-makers have the perfect everyday set that is perfect for everything from a morning juice to a casual evening whisky. The set includes six masterfully-crafted cut crystal tumbler glasses, each with its own design.
Rémy Martin, Tercet Cognac
Earlier this year, cognac brand Rémy Martin released the all-new Tercet, the result of a collaboration between the company’s cellar master Baptiste Loiseau, master distiller Jean-Marie Bernard and wine master Francis Nadeau. Following 10 years of work, Tercet became the first new permanent expression since its launch in 2010. The bottle’s design pays tribute to the rare collaboration and features the three creators’ signatures and faces. The liquid itself is rich and sweet and is recommended as an aperitif to follow dessert.
ITC Fabelle Exquisite Chocolates, Trinity Truffles
India’s home-grown luxury chocolate brand made international news in October when it officially earned the title for the world’s most expensive chocolate. Co-created with the Michelin-starred chef Philippe Conticini, a box of 15 exquisitely crafted chocolate truffles are available to order for $1,400. Naturally, the ingredients used are some of the rarest and finest in the world from the best single-origin cacao to the rare Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and rare Grand Cru dark chocolate.
