Quinn + Tonik Vol. 110: Give A Man A Mask And He Will Show His True Face

Quinn + Tonik Vol. 110: Give A Man A Mask And He Will Show His True Face

First published to our newsletter recipients on April 19, 2020
  
We've been doing an awful lot of overboozin' of late. As well as soaking up large amounts of economics, finance and medical information. Our favourite find is a not inexpensive one. But we think it could be a good buy nonetheless. DQ scours the Financial Times pretty much every day, and particularly enjoys the comments.
 
In recent weeks his favourite section, "Lunch with the FT" featured Kiril Sokoloff. You can read the piece here. Mr Sokoloff is a contrarian investor, who judging from his digs in Lyford Cay may well have done pretty well. His independent institutional global research firm, 13D, is a fascinating compendium of wisdom, smarts and investment ideas.
 
As one wag points out, "The number of people who have predictive power in the markets is very, very small. Kiril Sokoloff, I think, has the highest batting average, but he also throws a lot of spaghetti at the wall (his subscription service is too expensive for all but the wealthiest investors, but it is probably worth the money.)" - Jared Dillian
 
While you get one of our new travel cocktail kits, and make drink, you could do worse than ponder some of the gems of wisdom 13D has consolidated as a small part of its offering, perhaps indicative of the mindset of everything else:
 
"The humble person understands that experience is a better teacher than pure reason. He understands that wisdom is not knowledge. Wisdom emerges out of a collection of intellectual virtues. It is knowing how to behave when perfect knowledge is lacking." - David Brooks
 
 
"Do not condemn the judgment of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong." - Dandemis
 
"Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance." - Will Durant
 
So, on that note, ponder these snipets of wisdom, invest in some cocktail and other kit, mix yourself up a Sidecar, and get reading.
 
Cheers!

life: unstructured, masked, and insulated

 
We're counting on you not descending into the depths of depravity and thus that you will still require something stylish for your summer 2020 plans. Whether they are to walk to the kitchen and back to find the garnish for your cocktails, or head further afield for adventures. We're ready, willing, and able to get something cranking whether unstructured linen, or that summer lightweight wool tuxedo - just let us know.

So many people asked that we decided to make our classic smoking skull logo on a 3ply stretch polyester mask. One size fits all. Order up for yourself, your friends, your family, or as one Gentleman Rogue already has, his entire 250 person Holiday List for an early gift.
 
One of the things we like most about these masks is they stretch over your nose and chin, and leave few gaps. Providing a nice, snug, fit, while allowing plenty of airflow (DQ has been cycling around Gotham with these on to test them...)
 
Entirely bespoke versions also available upon request.

We've been dreaming of making these Gilet's for years. Eventually we figured it out. And they are looking even better than we could have wished for. Order a ready to wear one with our classic navy blue mohair specification - just give us the size based upon your suit jacket. Or set up a consultation for a fully bespoke commission to match your shotguns, supercar, yacht or ski-lodge. Patagucci Pataschmucci.

Summer is upon us again. But where we make our Quinn Rosé in the Var region of Provence, France they've been making rosé for over 1,000 years. Our wine is a pale pink color with the luminescence of the sea and has an aromatic profile on the nose which reveals itself through a floral aroma accompanied by notes of white peach and melon with hints of grapefruit on a balanced mineral backbone. The first sip is refreshingly light and dry, with well balanced acid and a delicate richness of mouth feel. And it has a medium finish leaving you thirsty for more. DQ has been drinking it since 1982...
