The limited edition ‘Made by The Sea’ gift set was a unique collaboration with TALISKER, the single malt Scotch Whisky distillery from the Isle of Skye. Designed with the adventurer in mind, the hand-crafted boots were inspired by the wild storm-tossed seas and rugged terrains of the Isle of Skye.
This collaboration has now sold out.
Distilled at the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye, TALISKER captures the true spirit of its remote and rugged environment. A stalwart in the TALISKER family, the 10-year-old Scotch Whisky is world renowned for its maritime sea-salt flavour, with a smooth and smoky finish.
Made with the finest Italian leather burnished by hand in the family owned factories of Le Marche, the boot boasts a uniquely positioned pocket to hold the 2oz etched stainless steel hipflask for the man on the move. Adding an unexpected twist, the pièce de résistance of the boot is the St. Moritz sole featuring a section of the cask used in the ageing of the 10-year-old TALISKER.
“TALISKER is one of my favourite single malts, so this has been a real passion project for me. I wanted to create a design which reflected our shared passions for craftsmanship and innovation. And the ‘Made By the Sea’ boot is just that – it evokes a spirit of adventure resonant of the rugged landscape of the Isle of Skye.”
– Tim Cooper, Cobbler-in-Chief, Oliver Sweeney
“We’re delighted to partner with Oliver Sweeney to create a gift that showcases our shared devotion to craft and adventure. Just like TALISKER, the boots are bold in design and will bring out the adventurer in all who wear them.”
– Nick Temperely, Head of Diageo Reserve GB
