"Shwood has joined forces with BUSHMILLS Irish Whiskey and Boston, MA boutique, Bodega on a limited run of Shwood’s “Canby” frame style, crafted from genuine BUSHMILLS Irish Whiskey barrels.   Limited to 100 pieces, the White Oak used for the frames dates back over 100 years.  The eyewear is packaged in a custom wooden whiskey crate, with a crowbar to pry it open and get the goods."

The video below demonstrates that they're even finished with an Irish whiskey wax.

This is everything I've ever wanted.
