For the ‘cool dad’

Monkey Shoulder is the perfect gift for the playful, outgoing dad. The UK’s top trending whisky (as featured in Drinks International 2019 Annual Brands Report) possesses a cheeky disregard for tradition and, with its ‘made for mixing’ ethos, is committed to unconventional cocktails – like the Ginger Monkey or the Lazy Old Fashioned. Combining three uniquely different Speyside single malts, this whisky is expertly blended and then married together, creating a versatile and mixable Scotch for a new generation of drinkers.

Monkey Shoulder has a RRP of £27, available at Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose.

17th May is Submarine Day – celebrate the first submarine launch with a Dark & Stormy cocktail from Spytail Ginger Rum

Raise a glass of Spytail Ginger Rum and celebrate the anniversary of the first successful submarine that could be submerged for any considerable distance. The Irish inventor John Philip Howard designed Holland 1V which combined electric and gas engines and was the first submarine to be formally commissioned by the US Navy. Launched on 17 May 1897 in New Jersey it was christened USS Holland.

Spytail is synonymous with submarines and underwater exploration as it’s name was discovered by the distillers stamped on an early engineering drawing for a submarine in the local maritime archive. They also discovered that, while submarines wailed along the bottom of the Charente River, ships laden with rum and ginger followed the same route from the Caribbean.

Spytail is a blend of aged Caribbean rums, blended and bottled at a small distillery by La Compagnie Bathysphere in the Cognac Region of France. Bottled in eye-catching glass ware it celebrates the intrigue and mystery surrounding French underwater exploration.

Celebrate this day with a Spytail Dark & Stormy which blends Spytail Ginger Rum with ginger beer served over ice and garnished with a slice of lime juice.

RRP £28.00 for 70 cl ABV 40% Stockists www.amazon.co.uk www.amazon.co.uk/Spytail-17875-Ginger-Rum/dp/B01MYDM0EQ/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1552990149&sr=8-1&keywords=spytail+ginger+rum

INTRODUCING THE PERFECT GIFT FOR FATHER’S DAY BULLET & BONE IS A NEW CONCEPT IN SPORTS SKINCARE FOR ACTIVE MEN SEEKING A COMPETITIVE EDGE.

www.bulletandbone.com

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | INSTAGRAM

This is the perfect gift for any father with an interest in sport or physical activity, regardless of their skill level. The skincare range has been carefully designed to enhance preparation, performance and recovery when active, while simultaneously soothing the skin, through unique combinations of
natural ingredients. The revolutionary products are a great way to treat your dad this Father’s Day. Developed, tested and manufactured at state-of-the-art facilities in the UK by a team of experts with over 40 years’ experience, this male grooming ‘equipment’ harnesses the natural efficacy of
ingredients such as Siberian ginseng, geranium and taurine. All products get off the starting block with a trio of active ingredients, unique in combination to Bullet & Bone, in maca extract: offering multi-functional properties that help boost performance, endurance and recovery (while also
performing a barrier function for the skin); magnesium: which aids energy production and muscle rehabilitation and jasmine, to aid alertness and concentration. Further components in the ranges are tailored and engineered to assist with those all-important marginal gains in the gym and maximise performance in competitive sport.

Harnessing active, performance power ingredients, as nature intended, for the face and body,
choose from:
Bullet & Bone Muscle Activating Rub will give muscles and joints an instant kick-start using rapidly absorbed, warming and stimulating ginger, black pepper and willow bark.

Bullet & Bone Vapour Release Balm is the first of its kind to perform functionally and be pleasurable to apply and wear on the skin. The soft wax opens the airwaves with menthol and eucalyptus extracts while jasmine, lemon and coffee beans enhance concentration, alertness and stamina.


Bullet & Bone Protective Moisturising Spray channels the efficacy of 11 essential oils in a light weight, non-greasy formula that provides protection from the elements and can be reapplied before, during and after being active. It’s also lightly fragranced with fresh aloe vera and jasmine to aid
concentration and focus.

After a workout, the Bullet & Bone Cooling Recovery Body Wash will aid cooling down and muscle recovery. Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom salts) aids muscle recovery while menthol, eucalyptus and peppermint alongside essential oils pack a punch to ensure this high performing wash will stop perspiration, revive and ensure you’re ready to go.

Bullet & Bone will help ease you into a workout after a long day in the office or maximise performance ahead of competing on track or field. These results-driven products are like no other, combining the benefits of sports science know how and high-performance personal care, each variant is carefully designed and packaged to seamlessly fit in with both your high-octane lifestyle and sports bag.

The innovation was informed by Bullet & Bone’s recognition that time poor, active men will invest in the latest sporting equipment, gadgets and food supplements to enhance their sporting prowess, but there’s a gap in the market for potent, ‘all-in-one’ skincare tools that help to warm up, optimise
performance and cool down.

 Muscle Activating Rub

Ginger, black pepper, willow bark extract, jasmine and tea tree oil are just some of the potent natural ingredients chosen to warm,
refresh, energise and condition the skin.

Willow bark has been used for centuries for pain relief. Jasmine is proven to stimulate serotonin to enhance focus and concentration.

RRP £12.99

Vapour Release Balm

Menthol, eucalyptus and lemon open the airwaves, peppermint aids stamina and in combination with coffee beans and rosemary prompts alertness – just some of the high-performance ingredients that make this balm pleasant to use and highly effective when active.

RRP £13.99

Protective Moisturising Spray

Packed with 11 essential oils, including Taurine to aid skin regeneration, condition and protection plus aloe vera to soothe and condition. Siberian Gingseng improves resistance and provides a barrier function. Concentrated Inca Maca Extract protects the skin from UV, pollution and environmental damage.

RRP £12.99

Cooling Recovery Body Wash

Menthol, eucalyptus, peppermint, moringa seed and magnesium sulphate join forces with further ingredients to ease and boost. Magnesium has a long sporting history as it supports muscle function, promotes the release of energy and helps combat muscle fatigue. While geranium also helps
counter inflammation. Moringo seed extract actively purifies the skin and is an anti-pollutant.

RRP £6.99

The Bullet & Bone gift set can be purchased exclusively from www.bulletandbone.com and has an RRP of £39.99.

Individual products are available from www.thegroomingclinic.com and Amazon. @bulletandboneuk

OVER 11.5 MILLION DISPOSABLE PODS SAVED FROM LANDFILL YEARLY – BUT MORE TO BE DONE


Single use coffee capsules are a convenience that is costing the Earth and our hip pockets. It is estimated that Aussies are consuming a whopping 6 million disposable coffee capsules each day. This statistic indicates the popularity of coffee pod machines across the country, but it also flags a serious contribution to the global landfill issue. There’s no question that coffee is a much loved and important daily ritual for many of us, but the environmental impact is becoming one we can no longer ignore. The planet is slowly being suffocated by coffee capsules that take over 500 years to breakdown, all the while releasing toxic carbon emissions. The good news is that there are alternatives to disposable coffee pods. In 2015, Crema Joe took a stand against single-use coffee capsules by offering consumers eco-friendly options for popular pod machines. Made of stainless steel, their leading SealPod capsule is infinitely reusable, which means consumers can now significantly reduce the environmental impact of their coffee pod machine. Since launching, Crema Joe has estimated that their customers are now preventing over 11,500,000 coffee pods from heading to landfill every year. But this pales in comparison to Australia-wide figures for single-use capsules. With over one million Nespresso pod machines in homes across Australia, not to mention other brands, the reality is that over 131 billion pods could still be making their way into landfill each year. Crema Joe founder, Kayla Mossuto says, “Educating consumers on product waste is key”. “If everyone with a capsule machine made the switch to reusable coffee pods, our annual impact on landfill could be reduced by 45,896,676 cubic feet. Just to put it in perspective, that’s the equivalent of 52 Olympic sized swimming pools every year!” Kayla adds, “There is a lot of ‘greenwashing’ that goes on in the coffee capsule market. Many are under the misconception that recycling is the answer, but it’s simply not.” Unfortunately, the majority of coffee capsules are made from non-recyclable composite plastic. And, for those capsules that can be recycled, it is suggested that less than 5% are actually being recycled appropriately. That’s because spent capsules can’t be tossed into household recycling bins. Our general recycling plants just aren’t 
equipped to process products so small. Coffee pods must be taken to special drop-off points to be properly recycled. However, it’s also important to note that the collection and recycling of coffee pods in itself is energy intensive. The transportation, storage and processing of the pods produces waste and CO2 emissions. “As consumers, we need to take more responsibility for the items we consume and understand the impact it will have for our future, and our children’s future.” Crema Joe’s range of reusable capsules are designed for minimal impact on the environment and our budgets. With reusable capsules, a household could save over $500 per year. 
Crema Joe is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Kayla and Piers Mossuto. The pair are on a mission to put an end to single-use coffee pods, as well as run their business with as little environmental impact as possible. From developing minimal, eco-friendly product packaging, repurposing packing materials from other businesses, and sourcing used equipment and furniture for their office, Crema Joe is leading by example in the eCommerce space.
