New releases from Jameson Irish Whiskey and Nespresso for March and April

Jameson Irish Whiskey has announced a new limited-edition bottle for St Patrick’s Day 2013 (right). Jameson had already sponsored the Film Independent Spirit Awards which Lucire reported on last week—it seems fitting that this proudly Irish brand celebrates a quintessentially Irish day with a bottle designed by glass artist David Smith.
   The bottle design was inspired by the glass etching and gilding that one might find in the great Dublin pubs.
   In a release, Smith said, ‘Being both a whiskey drinker, and a Jameson fan, it was an immense opportunity which I couldn’t refuse. It was a natural fit as we both preserve craft and tradition in a contemporary way. Having the opportunity to design an iconic bottle which has hardly changed in two hundred years was one that I’m not presented with often, so I am extremely proud to have stamped my signature style onto the bottle.’
   The limited-edition bottle is available in New Zealand from March 1 with a retail price of NZ$63·99.
   Nespresso has introduced a stainless steel-panelled version of its Pixie machine (below), meaning that the machine suits even more décors. In terms of engineering, the latest model is identical to the previous one: it still makes a cup of Nespresso coffee in 25 to 30 seconds, has an alert for low water levels, and consumes 40 per cent less power than the best-in-class energy category of A-class machines.
   It comes bundled with an Aeroccino, and is released in April at the Nespresso Boutique in Newmarket, Auckland, selected retailers, through or the Nespresso Club in New Zealand on 0800 234-579. Nespresso also offers a cash-back reward for New Zealand customers of NZ$50 on the Pixie range from March 25 to May 19; retail price for the Pixie is NZ$499.
