Making the question of what your poison of choice is all the more fitting, plonk an artfully sculpted skull-shaped ice cube ($12 USD) for a surefire conversation-starter to a house party.

Fancy faceted skull cubes that really look quite artistic and beautiful, in a Damien Hirst kind of way. A brilliant addition to your kitchen if you're a frequent party host. Available for purchase online at Gamogo.

With its new global campaign “Rise Above” and its new film, Martell XO pays tribute to Martell’s unique heritage, using its emblem, the swift. Legend has it that in 1715, a swift led Jean Martell to Cognac, where, at only 21 years old, he founded what would become the oldest of the great Houses of Cognac. The film was directed by James Gray in collaboration with Director of Photography Darius Khondji. With a sudden explosion of music, the four men fulfil their vision, while above them, swifts shoot up into the sky. The film features a bespoke soundtrack, performed by the members of the London Symphony Orchestra and mixed by Oscar-winning sound engineer Etienne Colin. Enjoy.

Little has changed since William Grant & Sons, now one of Scotland’s few remaining family-owned distillers, built The Balvenie distillery in 1892. The Balvenie still performs every aspect of its whisky making on-site, from barley growing to bottling. It even has its own cooperage to ensure the quality of its barrels. And yet, two remarkable things occurred at the distillery in 1962. First, in June, Hamish Robertson, the master blender at the time, selected a very special barrel—cask number 5576, a large hogshead made of European oak—and filled it with new-made distillate.
