One of the finest combinations of old world adventure from the British Isles has just been combined by luxury British menswear designer Oliver Sweeney and Isle of Skye’s own single malt Scotch, Talisker Whiskey. They have paired a distinctive hiking boot with a distinctive liquor, a 700ml bottle of the brand’s signature 10-Year-old Scotch, a branded sterling silver etched hipflask that fits a special pocket in the boot, and a traditional compass all in a solid oak presentation box.
The fitted two-ounce flask was handcrafted of Italian silver just as the Hiker Boots ($810) are formed of fine hand-burnished Italian leather. A support wedge in the heel is made of wood reclaimed from the very casks this whiskey was aged in. There will only ever be 200 pairs of these stylish, no-nonsense hiking boots made. This “Made by the Sea” gift set comprises nothing but top of the line quality in craftsmanship and materials.
