Drink Whisky, Wear Stylish Shades, Save the Planet

In a first for both the fashion world and the distilling industry, Glenmorangie Scotch whisky will upcycle its aged wooden casks into a unique line of luxury sunglasses designed and handcrafted by Finlay & Co., a premium British manufacturer of wooden-framed lenses. The design partnership is an unusual one, but it makes perfectly good sense—after all, wood is what gives whisky its style, imparting character and nuance. And Glenmorangie uses its casks just twice, so this is a particularly stylish way to recycle.
