Something about this Classic Boat Kit from The Balmain Boat Company reminds us of Hemingway, which in turn reminds us of drinks, travel and ultimate relaxation.  In other words, it reminds us of heaven.  Regardless of your construction skill level – whether you have trouble navigating a bansaw or, not only can you build a boat, but you can build it inside a giant Coke bottle – this kit makes the process simple and enjoyable.  Everything you need, all the plans; pre-cut plywood; even the disposable gloves, are included.  Have a cold one in hand and start crafting your own and start dreaming of relaxing at sea.  You’ll just need to pick up some undercoating, paint and varnish and, oh yeah, oars (should probably be aware of that one before you take off on a boat ride to Pamplona).

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
