wood-watch

Bamboo has come to the fore on the wave of green trends. It’s that wood that’s readily abundant, pretty to look at, and has many applications. And now we can add watchmaking to them: Reveal’s Bamboo watch uses the wood in the housing and band, creating a look that’s decidedly different while remaining classic and sharp. The grain’s natural beauty comes with the added benefit that it’s a very sustainable wood. On the flipside of this Eco coin, BP has partnered with a watchmaker recently to do a commemorative Gulf Spill watch made from tar balls and baby pelican feathers.

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.
