Glenmorangie and Finlay & Co. Sunglasses

In March 2016 Glenmorangie partnered with British sunglasses company Finlay & Co. to create the “world’s first” whisky sunglasses created from ex-casks.

Finlay & Co. used a 16-step system to create each pair of sunglasses by hand, fitting with Glenmorangie’s 16 Men of Tain – the highland whisky makers who have passed the secrets of Glenmorangie whisky-making from generation to generation.

Each pair of sunglasses displayed the cask’s grain and natural finish, in celebration of the Scotch whisky brand’s “pioneering approach” to cask and wood management.
