It’s been a year in the making and finally we can announce a very special partnership collection with Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky for 2016. For any Scotch whisky lover, our Glenmorangie sunglasses have been designed and handcrafted to display the natural character and unique grain of the original whisky casks from which these sunglasses have been made from.
Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky originates in the Scottish highlands where, at the Glenmorangie Distillery, it is distilled in the tallest malt whisky stills in Scotland, expertly matured in the finest American White Oak casks.
By re-cutting and deconstructing the staves of each of these casks, then stripping them down to fine layers and cross-bonding them against the grain, we have created a collection of sunglasses which combine strength and lightness whilst showcasing the individual character of the original casks.
Each pair of Glenmorangie sunglasses has gone through a rigorous 16-step craftsmanship process here in Britain, with each cask producing about 60 pairs of sunglasses. Just 1,843 pairs of sunglasses have been made, celebrating the year in which the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded, 1843 and each are individually numbered.
The design of the Glenmorangie sunglasses is based upon the popular Finlay & Co. Ledbury shape which is suitable for all face shapes. The sunglasses are surprisingly lightweight, yet sturdy and the temple are fitted with spring hinges to fit the size of the wearer's head.
The collaboration represents a coming together of two brands which share a deep connection to wood and also an appreciation for quality craftsmanship. The Glenmorangie collection is on sale now here and we offer free worldwide delivery. Personalised engraving is also available on Glenmorangie sunglasses for the ultimate gift.
