Welcome to the 2023 Holiday Gift Guide from YRB.
The editorial staff has curated the best exclusive gifts for the guide for this year.
Rampur Double Cask
The Rampur Double Cask was launched in 2019. This exquisite whisky is crafted
from a marriage of American Bourbon barrels and European Oak Sherry casks that
infuse it with delicate balsamic vanilla notes mixed with rich caramel, dried dark fruits
and spicy tonalities for an incomparable depth of flavor.
This beautiful expression has spent two thirds of its life in American Oak Bourbon
Cask and one third in European Oak Sherry Oloroso Cask.
Rampur Double Cask does not bear an age statement, but the location of
maturation, in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains, sees extreme shifts in
temperature throughout the year, allowing the whisky a much deeper level of
interaction with the wood than those in more temperate climates.
Barrell Foundation Bourbon is a blend of bourbons from Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, and Maryland, all ranging in age from five to nine years.
Twenty-three percent rye in the mash bill gives Foundation richness and complexity, while the approachable proof point brings out lush sweetness and dark fruit.
Old Fashioneds are new again.
The Busker Irish Whiskey
The Busker is a “new to world” Irish Whiskey that is born out of modern Ireland, where the contemporary and bold meet at the crossroads of tradition.
The Busker is produced at the Royal Oak Distillery, in County Carlow, Ireland, located on an 18th-century estate in Ireland’s Ancient East region. It is one of the only distilleries in Ireland that offers all three classic Irish styles of whiskey – Single Grain, Single Malt, and Single Pot Still.
Available as a gift set.

Pierced Hemisphere by Massada Eyewear
Pierced Hemisphere is an eyewear frame sculpture inspired by Barbara Hepworth ART. MASSADA collaboration with Valentina Brugnatelli, Genève based designer. Design, like in original “Pierced Hemisphere” sculpture, brings a third space element. Solid frame is carved out qualitatively in a differentiated raw biomorphic groove . Transparent acetate colors point to simultaneity of overlapping spaces within the frame. It is a geometric play towards pure form. Temples are in the form of displaced, shifted ellipsoids shaped as geoids pierced in half. That brings kinetic metaphysical dimension to the time-space reflection in its design of experience as a space-structured process.
- Handcrafted in Italy
- 8mm premium Italian acetate
- Exclusive Italian hinges
- Special temples inspired by Barbara Hepworth ART
