The Macallan | The Flask with Oakley

(5 years ago)
It is always amazing to see some of my favorite things come together… in this case, The Macallan and Oakley have teamed up to created quite the limited edition: The Flask. And to be clear, the specialty of this set isn’t just the flask itself, but also the special elixir contained with it - The Macallan’s first-ever, single cask All American Oak Scotch Whisky, described as: “Its lemon citrus and spicy wood flavors make their bold introduction, then are tempered by rich, creamy notes, ultimately smoothing into a sophisticatedly balanced heady, sweet finish.” And only 550 limited editions of gift sets of The Flask with the accompanying 22yr single cask All American Sherry Oak Scotch Macallan will be available. (You can also buy the Flask alone here though!)As for The Flask itself, Oakley did quite a job! The inner flask is laser welded, food grade steel wrapped in carbon fiber composite that is treated to an intensive passivation and electro-polishing procedure then clad in black anodized 5-axis machined aerospace grade aluminum. The bottom is rubberized for non-skip gripping. The cap is double sprung for ergo sipping. There’s even a small rectangular air vent on the side of the machined aluminum funnel for ventilation… and it screws precisely into the mouthpiece so you don’t lose a drop.Take a peek at the stunning collaboration on the next page - as well as a video of them having fun testing the flask (drifting into it,[..]

No BS Branding

(5 years ago)
"No BS Branding By Rick Barrack I’m Rick. Just Rick. Not Richard (too Shakespearean); not Ricardo (too “I Love Lucy”); not Richie or Dick (no comment). Rick is a meat-and-potatoes guy, a dirt-on-his-jeans guy, a taking-the-kids-to-soccer-on-a-Saturday guy. Rick is a no- bullshit, give-me-the-facts-and-hold-the-editorial kind of guy. Rick… does not refer to himself in the third person.
