Celebrities at launch of world's first scotch whisky (sun) glasses
Sunglasses are synonymous with celebrity, so it was only right that the best of British talent turned out last night to celebrate the launch of the world’s first whisky sunglasses, crafted from Glenmorangie Original casks.
Stars including James Purefoy, Jasmine Guinness, Cara Theobold, Christian Cooke, Richard Lintern, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Keeley, Natalie Pinkham, Craig McGinlay, Ruaridh Jackson and Jessie Buckley explored the Scottish Highland Distillery’s limited-edition sunglasses range, Glenmorangie Originals, created as part of a pioneering collaboration with Finlay & Co., makers of crafted wooden-framed sunglasses. This limited edition eyewear is fashioned from oak wood taken from casks only ever used twice to age Glenmorangie Original.
In Glenmorangie’s Unseen Bar in Soho guests were invited to try the handcrafted sunglasses and to sample Glenmorangie’s inimitable character in cocktails inspired by the whisky’s casks.
Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation and Whisky Stocks, who attended the launch, said: “Created from Glenmorangie's own American white oak casks, each pair of sunglasses displays its natural grain and unique finish, embodying our Highland Distillery’s commitment to craftsmanship, and our respect for the wood from which our casks are made.”
Glenmorangie sunglasses, priced at £300, will be available at glenmorangie.com/unseen from today.
