FASHION: 200 Years of Lagavulin Scotch Whiskey / Tom Ford Launches Private Collection Eyewear Line / The Godfather Of Champagne Spraying
Scotch maker Lagavulin has been in the whiskey game for an impressive 200 years. In celebration of that, the distillery has bottled up a much younger 8-year old single malt offering that pays homage to the world’s first whiskey writer Alfred Barnard, who first visited Lagavulin back in the 1880s. Branded as Lagavulin’s official “200th Anniversary Scotch Whiskey,” the single malt batch, much like all of Lagavulin’s whiskeys, was distilled in the historic Islay region which typically gives out a more smokey/peaty flavor to the drink. Lagavulin’s 200th Anniversary Scotch Whiskey will be made available as a limited edition bottle.

All of the pieces are meticulously crafted from natural horn and the highest-grade Japanese titanium.

Part Tommy Gun, part super soaker, this insane contraption allows you to clip in magnum-sized bottles of champagne to then mow a crowd down in top-dollar bubbly. The Champagne Gun‘s metal chassis comes in either gold, chrome or rose-gold, and can be placed up-right to serve as an overly-elaborate bottle stand. The point however is to give the loaded piece a solid shake before blasting your friends at a distance of up to 20 feet for around 45 seconds.
