Distillers sells is
a limited edition—literally. The London
company is known for buying and bottling parcels of rare spirits, often
traveling the world to procure them from distilleries that have closed and even
rejecting spirits that just aren’t exquisite enough.
“Our business model is unique,” says joint managing director
Beanie Espey. “We only sell fine, rare, very old spirits. We don’t sell
anything at a budget—everything we do is limited and exclusive.” She admits
this is “both a privilege and a pressure,” since the pipeline for sourcing rare
spirits can be uncertain. If a release is unsuccessful, there’s nothing to prop
it up with,” she says.

watch the Patriots and Rams go head to head to see who will be crowned
champions. But while they go toe to toe, some people will be waiting in
anticipation for the halftime show. And still others will be watching Super
Bowl LIII for the commercials.
There is also the controversy over the half time show. Many
entertainers have planned on boycotting
the Super Bowl over the treatment of Colin Kaepernick over his apparent ban
from the league for being the initial leader of the kneeling movement.

On January 15, of 2019, I reach the age of 64. If I live one
more year, I can collect Medicare.
I may retire this year. I had a simple birthday. I met with Roger, Mary and my
wife Cam at the Texas
Roadhouse. We all agreed we would like that restaurant.
There is nothing particularly great about this year. We are
one year away from the next decade. Next year we will be in the 2020s. Maybe
some great mysticism will come across us next year.
