Clinking bottles and fear of breakages ruining field lunches can now be a thing of the past, thanks to Rigby’s new leather wine carrier. This latest in the London gunmaker’s line of expedition essentials is handmade in South Africa by leather specialists Els & Co, whose corporate culture values ethics and sustainability as highly as technical excellence.
Made from vegetable tanned leather, finished with a unique beeswax mixture, and boasting solid brass fittings, the wine carrier benefits from long-term good looks that will stand the test of the toughest expeditions and of time itself. Partitioned at the base and secured together with leather loops, it ensures that bottle necks are kept away from each other and guards against clinking and collisions, no matter how rough the road is. Straps made from 100% cotton canvas make carrying simple when on foot. The carrier is designed to fit two 750 ml bottles.
RRP (including VAT): £360 / US $405 / €425 plus postage and packaging.
