Inspired by the Savile Row pinstripe suit, the bottle has been designed by Swedish designer duo Skogsberg & Smart, and hand-blown, hand-cut and hand-engraved in crystal by craftsmen at the Reijmyre glassworks in the Östergötland region in southern Sweden.

The product is presented in a pinstripe fabric-clad case, with two hand-crafted crystal tumblers and “various other specially designed devices”.
