Mixology On The Go
From Drinking In America on Nov 19, 2012
For the jet-setting crowd, getting a good drink can be tough sometimes. You can only stand the airport bar for so long until you wish you could just make something yourself.
Cue Tumi luggage and Ketel One Vodka’s love child: The Tumi Mixology Set.
The two brands have teamed up to create an exclusive piece in hopes that “travel and cocktail enthusiasts across the world will mix up the ultimate entertaining experience.” The Mixology Set was handmade in Italy from Italian leather, nickel hardware and Poplar wood. The result is a mobile bar, possibly one of the finest inventions of the past 50 years (according to us.)
The outside of the luggage is fancy, but we’re going to skip to the important part – the inside. It’s got all of the essential tools for high-quality cocktails, with laser etched logos all over the place:
• Leather square bottle holders, custom-sized to fit the newly designed Ketel One bottles
• Leather coasters
• Two premium martini glasses
• Ice bucket and ice scoop
• Ice tongs
• Metal bar-spoon
• Vermouth spritzer
• Two olive picks
• Removable cutting board made from beech wood, with integrated recess for a custom knife
• Shaker with Tumi’s signature pattern
• One-ounce and two-ounce jiggers
The portable bar is scheduled to come out at the end of the month, so basically, any day now. It will be on sale at select Tumi stores and online at Tumi.com. This would make a great gift for someone who travels a lot, or just likes to bring a party with them wherever they go.
