Perfect for devotees of the very best of Christmas spirit(s), furniture and cigars, luxury launches site VeryFirstTo.com has partnered with Timothy Oulton to create an astonishing bar cabinet. The Ultimate Bar Cabinet comes stocked with some of the world’s finest drinks and cigars, and is delivered together with award-winning bartender Marian Beke. If purchased, the bar cabinet will arrive with Beke who will spend the weekend with you. Not only will he create magnificent bespoke cocktails according to you and your guests’ palates and mood, but he’ll deliver his famed mixology master classes too.
The exquisite luxurious bar contains drinks including: The Glenlivet Winchester 50 Year Old Single Malt Whisky (priced at $24,404), Domaine De La Romanée-Conti, Romanée Conti 1997 wine (priced at $23,183) and Louis Roederer, Cristal Gold Flacon Jeroboam, 2002 (priced at $20,738).
The smoker’s dream line-up of cigars curated by James J Fox (est. 1787) includes Partagás Gran Reserva Lusitanias ($318) and Hoyo de Monterrey Diademas Vintage 1980’s ($244).
The Timothy Oulton Hudson Bar Cupboard (individually priced at $7,350) is created with painstaking hand craftsmanship. Each leather panel is affixed one by one using hand-applied studs to create a rich patchwork. Timothy Oulton’s Hudson collection features an array of distinctive bar furniture and cabinetry, distinguished by luxurious vintage looking multi-tonal hues of deep, warm browns and blacks thanks to aniline dye that allows the hide’s natural character to come to the surface. Subtle detailing hints at something special within, bringing that provocative sense of the unexpected to life. Once opened, the bar cupboard reveals a myriad of compartments, each one designed to carry the necessary stocks of drinks, ingredients and accoutrements needed to shake up a storm.
Timothy Oulton, founder and creative director of his global brand says, “The new speakeasy-inspired Hudson collection is all about having people over, enjoying a drink and letting go. The Ultimate Bar Cabinet conveys that ever so slightly defiant streak, that insists on having a good time and going on a little later.”
Marcel Knobil, founder of VeryFirstTo, Superbrands and Cool BrandLeaders comments: “Thanks to a combination of the most beautifully crafted furniture, some of the world’s rarest drink and cigars, and the talents of one of the globe’s top bartenders, VeryFirstTo is offering the most outstanding bar cabinet available. Nothing like this has ever previously been offered and may never be possible again.”
Courvoisier L’Esprit de Josephine ($11,345/ £9,295) is a tribute to the first French empress – limited to 14 lalique crystal decanters, the Cognac uses liquid dating back to the 19th Century, bursting with floral notes that celebrate Josephine’s famed rose garden. The Glenlivet is one of only 100 bottles of this exceptionally rare dram created back in 1966 by then Master Distiller Robert Arthur. Romanée Conti, has been described as a masterpiece of equilibrium, associating the masculine and feminine characteristics in order to transcend them to a powerful racy elixir. Each Cristal Gold Flacon Jeroboam is 100% hand-crafted demanding four days work by two master goldsmiths mastering twelve different trades using seven metres of brass tape dipped in 24 carat gold with 508 silver-weld points.
The Partagás Gran Reserva Lusitanias is a cigar that has been aged for at least five years with production limited to just 5000 boxes of 15. The Hoyo de Monterrey Diademas Vintage 1980’s is referred to as a ‘giant perfecto’, with a woody delicate soft taste that rolls off the palate. Montecristo is the longest cigar in a Cuban portfolio and was once listed in the Guiness Book Of Records as being the most expensive cigar. The 40 cigars come together with one of the most beautiful and well crafted humidors available: the Elie Bleu Alba Blue 110 (£2,439/ £1,999).
