Whiskey Scented Clothing


It used to be so time-consuming to come home smelling like stale whiskey. You’d have to go to a bar, hang around a while (which means spending money on drinks), and wait for some other drunken patron to spill their drink on your shirt. Now, however, Johnnie Walker has teamed up with Harris Tweed Hebrides to make a fabric that continuously exudes the smell of Johnnie Walker Black Label so you can avoid all the hassle.

The company claims the fabric will give off the “subtle scent” of Black Label that will reflect the “key notes of the nose of the liquid,” which will include “rich malt, golden vanilla, red fruit, and dark chocolate tones.” And while the whiskey connoisseur may recognize all the variants to the scent, it should be fun to get pulled over in the shirt and see if the police officer can pick out the golden vanilla and red fruit when you roll down the car window and the reek of whiskey wafts out.


And—lucky day!—if the smell of whiskey isn’t quite enough for your clothes, Johnnie Walker is also teaming up with Oliver Sweeney to design a shoe that can hide a small bottle of Red Label in the heel. What more could any whisky lover ask for? These are the perfect gifts for anyone who always wants to smell like booze and can’t be without a bottle on them at all times—which really fits the description of someone you want to drop $489 on a pair of shoes for.


For the Whiskey folks out there

Move over, Scotland. Japanese whisky reigns supreme. The coveted title of World Whisky of the Year for 2015 goes to The Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry 2013, according to Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, which is indeed the bible of the whiskey world. It’s the first time this honor has been bestowed upon Japan.

Whatever the reason, experts agree on their love for this single malt. Only 18,000 bottles of the winning whisky were produced. It’ll cost you a pretty penny to enjoy this rare bottle—they go for an average of about $1500 on ebay.

The canister contained a bunch of vials of bull semen valued between $300 to $1500 each, KAAL TV reports.

The canister was worth $500 by itself,according to the Associated Press.

Weness isn't sure which day the load was stolen, but said the only time he and his hired hand were away from the farm was on Easter Sunday, according to

Mark May, chief deputy of the Mower County Sheriff's Office, says animal semen can be big business -- no bull.

"There is a market for this, a lot of people bid on it or purchase it instead of transporting their animals to and from site," he told Valley News Live. "They can purchase this vial of bull semen and inseminate their cow and I guess it's just a more reliable way to do it."

So far, there are no suspects.
