IWC x Mercedes-AMG

Stemming from their longstanding partnership of over 15 years, IWC Schaffhausen and Mercedes-AMG have launched the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “AMG”. It’s designed with a carbon fibre dial, a material that’s also utilized in AMG’s aero components. 

It’s the first Pilot’s Watch Chronograph in titanium, and the first to run on the 69385 calibre movement in a 43mm case. The timepiece can currently be pre-ordered on the website or in person at the boutiques and/or authorized retail partners.

The Balvenie

Malting floor at The Balvenie distillery

In celebration of World Whisky Day on May 15th, The Balvenie hosted an exclusive virtual tour of their distillery in Dufftown. The historic sights were seen through the lens of James Roberts, Brand Ambassador for The Balvenie Distillery, who walked through the site’s malting floor to the stillhouse, cooperage, and up to Warehouse 24. 

The experience showcased whisky distillery’s century-old processing methods such as the use of a traditional malting floor and the original furnace that’s still in use today. The walkthrough then showed the iconic ‘Balvenie Bell’-shaped copper stills with a bulging base – a feature replicated in the neck of The Balvenie bottle.

McGuigan Zero

McGuigan Wines launches its new alcohol-free range of wines. The Australian winemaker introduces three flavors in the McGuigan Zero lineup, comprising sparkling, and white and red wines, of which are chardonnay and shiraz respectively.

Alcohol content is extracted from the wines using spinning cone columns, a system that separates volatile chemicals from liquids without compromising the effect of flavor. This results in the same, naturally well-bodied wines that consumers can still enjoy without the effects of alcohol.

The products are widely available at all Cold Storage and Marketplace sale locations.
