We’ve featured a number of Diamond Jubilee products on the blog but this has to be the most extravagant. Diamond Jubilee By John Walker & Sons, is a specially crafted blend of rare malt and grain Scotch Whiskies distilled in and maturing since 1952, the year the Queen acceded to the throne. It comes in it’s own hand made wooden case made by the Queen’s cabinet maker N.E.J. Stephenson from Rugby. Every detail of the product packaging has been crafted by skilled craftsmen from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, a Royal charity that celebrates the preservation and conservation of craftsmanship. The 60 year old whisky has been made in a limited quantity of 60. If you want it to bless your drinks cabinet it will cost you 100,000 British pounds (the profits will go to the trust).

Ma’amite might just edge it for it’s cheekiness but we salute Kingsmill for their topical relevance.
It’s Frogger’s (the 1980′s video game) 30th birthday this year and NYC based Tyler DeAngelo has created a homage to the game. He’s taken real-time traffic data from the cars driving down 5th avenue and fed it into the arcade game. The result, you get to play Frogger with the real traffic of 5th avenue.
