Quinn + Tonik Vol. 78: Who Is More The Fool
First published to our newsletter recipients on April 1, 2019
Pick them up and blast through them in a day.
We uncovered them over lunch at Balthazar discussing the madness of a project to make a solid gold gift for a King in a time of gold and cross border controls. Including how to overcome sourcing and delivery challenges. All theoretical...ahem...of course.
We think Paul Arden's thinking is particularly refreshing. And while some of it has a similar taste to "The Obstacle Is The Way
" it is definitely not "The Daily Stoic
" - quite the opposite! (Incidentally there was also a mildly interesting commentary on Silicon Valley and the Stoics in the New York Times
this week - we just wish they would dress better...)
As usual, read from the bottom up with a glass of something in hand.

For over a decade we have been asked if we can make an unstructured jacket. Well here it is in all it's glory. Lightweight. Unlined. No canvas or any 'inards.' Just amazing quality cloth, cut, stitched, and finished by hand. Perfect for the summer as a jacket, suit, or three piece.
If this is your jam, make an appointment now and we'll rustle you one up in time to hop on the yacht, the links, or just for sauntering about the city.
Needless to say, complete with our Trademark Gentleman Rogue Pockets.

cocktail: quinn rosé
The sun is coming out. So it's time to get #quinning!
Snap up some of our fantastic, classic Provençal rosé at some of the finest hotels and bars in NYC, Miami, LA and beyond. Or have some shipped direct to you.
Quinn Rosé is made by artisans in Provence who have been making rosé since the turn of the century in the heart of the Appellation Côtes de Provence, just north of the famous beaches of St Tropez. The vines are located in the limestone foothills of the Maures massif in the southern Var which is between the Mediterranean Sea and the Alps. This terroir benefits from a Mediterranean climate perfect for traditional southern varietals first planted by the Romans centuries ago. The varietals are Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan sometimes with a little Rolle or Mourvedre also. The parcels are vinified separately, allowing for more character and complexity, and then blended just like the finest champagnes to produce a consistent taste from vintage to vintage. Throughout the process from growing to bottling nature is respected. Hand harvested, wild fermented in concrete tanks then finished in steel with no additives. Just great Provençal rosé the way it should be.
