A few years ago I wrote on my blog that the beautiful products from the Woollen Mill found their way to Savile Row, a shopping street in Mayfair London, famous for its traditional men's bespoke tailoring. Today I learned that Islay's Bowmore Distillery is teaming up with one of the famous tailors there to create a very special tailoring session as a Christmas gift. The package includes gents being fitted with a made-to-measure Bowmore tweed jacket followed by an in-depth one to one whisky tasting with a Bowmore expert on its range of whiskies as well as a luxury stay in a London hotel and fine lunch. A quote from the article:
"The colour palette is routed in Bowmore's core, Islay, with the blue inspired by the wild waves of Loch Indaal that surround Bowmore distillery and its legendary No.1 vaults. Made from the finest British wool, the tweed has been produced in conjunction with Gordon and Sheila Covell, owners of the Islay Woollen Mill, whose designs have featured in Hollywood blockbuster Braveheart. The package, also includes first class travel to London from anywhere in the UK, a night's stay for two at the Malmaison Clerkenwell, and lunch for two at the Sartoria restaurant, Savile Row. A bottle of Bowmore 15YO and whisky glasses complete the package and are issued to the recipient with details of the package in time for Christmas Day."
