Tsutsumu is a special method of neatly wrapping a gift, in this case the whisky, with a furoshiki. Fathers receiving this gift will be touched not only by the whisky, but also by the art of wrapping and the ritual that surrounds this refined practice. In Japanese, “furoshiki” translates to a “cloth for the bath.” Like origami, it is considered an integral part of Japanese culture. For 2000 years the furoshiki served as a special pouch to hold personal effects. Today, the ancient custom has become fashionable in Japan because it offers a beautiful eco-friendly alternative to paper and plastic for wrapping gifts.
Head to Selfridges, London on Saturday 14 June 2014 to see the art of furoshiki to celebrate Father’s Day with the House of Suntory. Pick up your beautifully gift wrapped Suntory whisky in store on Father’s Day weekend.
Known as ‘black gold’ amongst the coffee elite, Kopi Luwak Ruby and Kopi Luwak Diamond are the world’s rarest and most expensive coffee. Otherwise known as ‘civet coffee’, the coffee beans are eaten and digested by the Asian palm civet, reducing acidity and improving finish. On a small plantation in the Gayo region in Sumatra, Indonesia, the beans are hand collected after having been processed by wild civet cats and, combining traditional and contemporary methods, the coffee is finally packaged for those lucky enought to buy it. The coffee has been deemed the world’s highest grading standard for Grade A beans for its triple sorted beans, a standard not seen anywhere else in the world.

Who doesn't love a bit of chocolate? This isn't just any old chocolate though; this is La Madeline au Truffle, which starts with a decadent 70% Valrhona dark chocolate, heavy cream, sugar, truffle oil and vanilla as the base for the rich decadent ganache. A rare French Perigord truffle (a rare mushroom) is then surrounded by this rich decadent ganache; it is enrobed in Valrhona dark chocolate and then rolled in fine cocoa powder. The result is pure extravagance!
