Asket Cashmere Sweaters
Cashmere sweaters are some of the fashion world’s most luxurious essentials. Unfortunately, top-class cashmere has always been as rare and expensive as it is warm and cozy. However, thanks to Asket’s new Italian cashmere collection this kind of luxury just became a whole lot more affordable. The Asket Cashmere Sweater is made from 100% Grade A Inner-Mongolian Cashmere and 100% Made in Italy. Every step of the process takes place in Umbria, AKA “the cashmere valley” where it is spun, knitted, hand-linked and finished by seasoned experts in small artisanal factories with decades of experience working with some of the world’s most prestigious fashion houses.

The Macallan Double Cask
It is often said that when two worlds come together they create something magical, or simply extraordinary. For The Macallan, this is the absolute truth behind their new 12 year old single malt whisky; The Macallan Double Cask. This is a single malt which tells the story of a journey; a story which brings together different worlds. To create Double Cask, The Macallan bring new oak from America across thousands of miles to Spain, where oak casks are crafted and sherry seasoned before traveling to their distillery on Speyside to mature for twelve years. These whiskies are then harmoniously united with those aged in the very best sherry seasoned European oak casks. This union reveals an unmatched investment in time and extraordinary commitment to mastery for which The Macallan has been known since 1824.
Available at The Macallan, priced £55
