The festive season is always perfect for limited-edition gifts. Chivas Regal kicks it off this week with a collaboration with New York illustrator, Dan Funderburgh, who has designed a limited-edition gift tin for its 12 Year Old Scotch.
   The design is particularly stylish, bringing in heraldic elements in a contemporary fashion. The different textures convey the layers and flavour of the product.
   Says Funderburgh in a release, ‘Heraldic crests have always appealed to me ĂŠsthetically so I wanted to utilize this element of Chivas Regal in my design. The aim was to achieve a design that was bold, yet with delicate details and a contemporary approach to the tradition of chivalry.’
   The Chivas Regal limited-edition gift tin and 12 Year Old Scotch retails for NZ$66·99.
   Previous collaborators have included Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood, and the late Alexander McQueen.
   It’s not only whisky: it seems right that mĂ©thode traditionelle has its place in the sun with the season.
   Deutz has announced a collaboration with glass-blowing artists Lukeke Design for its new vintage Deutz Marlborough Prestige CuvĂ©e. Lukeke has created a set of limited-edition flutes.
   Luke Jacomb and Kate Rutecki of Lukeke created the Deutz Designer Series flutes, bringing in a distinctly New Zealand point of view with its black glass and stem designs representing the Marlborough landscape.
   The design is a Reidel vintage flute-inspired design, says Rutecki.
   The inspiration behind the design was the Deutz mĂ©thode traditionelle wine itself, using Champagne techniques and Marlborough grapes.
   â€˜Our brief to Lukeke was to bring to life the idea of old-world substance meeting new-world flair and ingenuity,’ says Deutz winemaker Julia O’Connell.
   Jacomb says, ‘The Deutz philosophy parallels our approach to glass-blowing, which involves using tools and techniques that date back hundreds of years—making it hard to find replacement parts when you need them!—and adding a contemporary twist.’
