You know that extra cash you have now that the rand has weakened and your salary paid to you in dollars or euros or pounds has just provided you with an unexpected Christmas bonus? Perfect timing, isn’t it. Here’s just what you need: A Rolls-Royce limited edition Cocktail Hamper for R685 000.
Never heard of a cocktail hamper before? Chilled, we’ve got you.
It’s sort of a portable drinks globe, complete with decanters, tumblers, cocktail shaker, ice bucket, bottle opener, cocktail sticks, jigger, muddler, crusher, atomizer, strainer, and a chopping board.
Now how’s that for a picnic date.
Every detail has been considered, from the paring knife being magnetically housed in a recess in the walnut structure “thereby ensuring it is stored and transported in safety and without disturbance” to an integrated light which turns on when the hamper is opened to “evoke the aesthetic of a luxurious cocktail bar.” And the glasses? They take a month to be created by hand by Theresienthal, one of Europe’s most revered glassmakers. Oh, and they’re finished in platinum.
Alas, only 15 will be made and to own one, all you need to do is order one through your local Rolls-Royce dealership.
