1) Charles Tyrwhitt #SWIG

For the past month, I've been playing with investment options to bring SWIG worldwide.

I considering myself fortunate then, to get an early morning meeting with Nick Wheeler.
Nick Wheeler of Charles Tyrwhitt investing in SWIG Hip Flasks
(He & his SO own Charles Tyrwhitt and the White Company respectively. What a team!).

Good news.. he's decided to invest.
...The only condition is that
 I have to sell 200 flasks online in March 
*without spending a penny!*
SWIG Target: 68 / 200 
I'm a little behind, but thought i'd keep you all up to date on progress. 
(Just 18 days to go!).
Want to help?
Really? Thanks! 

1) Forward on this newsletter and recommend SWIG. 
2) Mission Complete.

I don't think Mr Wheeler expects us to succeed... 
and I really want to prove him wrong!

3) The Story of SWIG®

Why did I sell all of my stuff and move to London to start a hip flask brand?

4) SWIG n' Steak Charity Auction

In an effort to raise money for mens cancer prevention, my friend and I combined the notoriety of our projects (SWIG® and 'Steak & BJ Day') to setup a Bespoke SWIG® charity auction.

The result was raising £150 through a hand drawn pouch design by our favourite duo of Vincenzo and Stefano from Italian animation studio 'Nucco Brain')

5) Member Refill Advice

Thanks to Kenneth W. of the SWIG Society who provided this weeks refill advice.
"What would you put in your SWIG®?
"A Whisky!... Now, I guess there is so many, but I'd say Bruichladdich! 
I have a soft spot for them. Their Bruichladdich Cuvee 382 La Berenice (a 21 year old) is not something that you will see in the whisky shops that often.
I think your flasks would be a very fine match for their whiskies.
Best wishes, Kenny"

Editors Note: "Have a look at their store here. I agree, their product is amazing. Anyone like to see a Bruichladdich SWIG pouch in the future?" - David

Nick and his brother (Society Members #00666 and #00667e-mailed me to show off their brand new SWIG® flask and accompanying cycling adventure.
