In a summer when many greats are going for gold, it reminds us of those who have already won the medal of honour. Heroes such as Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, Sir Chris Hoy…and Jack Daniels. The first three are vivid memories but the latter may have you scratching your heads. Well, Elysium Magazine isn’t one to lie, especially not to all our discerning gent readers, so we kid you not. The famous Tennessee tipple’s double gold medals in 1914 and 1915 are the reason why we’re recommending the Limited Edition Double Gold Medal Gift pack for your drinks cabinet this week.
The stylish gift pack from Jack Daniel’s is a winning combination that impressed us here at Elysium Towers. Encased in a black and gold box, inside it contains a matte black 1L bottle of the iconic Old No.7 which stands podium style with two stylish heavy-set glass tumblers marked with the years of the gold triumph either side. It’s the distinctive pack which makes this a collector’s item.
The tipple itself, crafted by the process of mellowing the whiskey through sugar maple charcoal, is deliciously smooth. It’s this velvety texture which led to London’s Anglo-American Exhibition awarding it gold in 1914. The second gold followed in 1915 when the Institute of Hygiene recognised Jack Daniel’s ritual-like consistency of production. It’s just another sign that hard work is always rewarded.
How does the discerning gent get his hands on one of these? Well the gift pack is exclusively available at World Duty Free shops or can be pre-order for collection by those travelling through or returning to London’s Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports. What better excuse for a holiday or weekend away do you need! Perhaps a look through Elysium’s travel section could provide some wanderlust, providing the window to collect one of these beauties for your drinks cabinet collection to soften the post-holiday blues.
