Gear: Well we are about simplicity and drinking in style is not that important to us, it’s definitely about the quality of the spirits. What if there was a way to combine both? There is with the Alexander Wang Shot Glasses, made from 100% stainless steel with a pale gold finish these shot glasses easily stack together and fit in a carrying case. They are simply a great product that can be packed and taken anywhere. All you need is a few friends and some great juice. Get them here.

Gear: So if you’re like me your significant other probably sees your large bourbon and whiskey collection on a daily basis, they may even be alright with it now. What about a secret stash? Maybe a rare offering? Or something you don’t want to advertise you have on hand. That’s where the Hip Flask Book Safe comes into play. This hollowed out book is a great place to stash that special juice. The books are readable to around page 200. So go ahead and get one and get on with your sneaky life.
Drink: Inspired by ‘Coffee and Cigarettes’, the series of short films from Jim Jarmusch, Stolen Coffee and Cigarettes Rum is a great smoke flavor filled rum. The distillation and ageing process takes place in the Caribbean where the rum matures in ex-bourbon oak barrels for a minimum of two years, before it is carefully blended by hand. The rum is unique and definitely a great conversation starter. With flavors of molasses, toffee, wood smoke, and butterscotch this will definitely be a great addition to many cocktails.
