British shoemaker Oliver Sweeney has been in the business of footwear for over 25 years. It started as a shoe brand in 1989 and eventually expanded into menswear, combining the finely tailored sensibility of Savile Row with the quality of Italian leather. Whether it’s Chelsea Boots, brogues or loafers, Oliver Sweeney takes all the classic styles and adds their own twist. If you know whiskeys, you’ll know that Talisker whisky is a reliable classic single malt Scotch, great for sipping neat or on the rocks after a long hard day of work. Oliver Sweeney and Talisker have teamed up for a Made by the Sea gift set that will make any man who appreciates both good style and good drinks.
The Made by the Sea gift set brings together a bottle of Talisker single malt Scotch Whisky and a pair of Oliver Sweeney hiking boots that come with a handy little pocket to store a flask of whiskey — the flask also comes with the gift set.
Oliver Sweeney takes the classic hiking boot and makes it with the finest Italian leather burnished by hand in its Italian factory. The strategically positioned pocket, embossed with the Talisker name, makes it easy to store the 2-ounce etched, stainless steel hip flask so you can always have a swig around when you’re on the go. There’s also a handy micro-compass built into the collar. The boots’ main feature is a St. Moritz sole that has a section of the cask used in the ageing of the decade-old Talisker as a detail on the shoes’ heel. One side is embossed with Talisker, while the other is marked with the Oliver Sweeney logo.
The boots and the signature 70cl bottle of Talisker’s 10-year-old whiskey come in a solid oak box that can be reused for for storage for special keepsakes and more.
