GIFTS & ACCESSORIES

Graycliff Cigar Co. Offers Signature and Espresso Coffee

Founded by Graycliff Resort owner Enrico Garzaroli in 1997, The Graycliff Cigar Company was established to fulfill Garzaroli’s dream of producing top-class cigars that would be perfectly compatible with the fine wine and cuisine that his restaurants were noted for. Garzaroli has now extended his gourmet vision to fine coffees. Graycliff Signature Coffee is grown in the high mountains of Guatemala and is 100% certified organic. Graycliff coffee growers—descendants of the Ixil, Kliche, Kanojobal, and Maya tribes —use the pure, and simple techniques of their ancestors to grow and hand collect this superior coffee. Graycliff coffees are then roasted delicately so as to protect the characteristics of all natural essences, aroma, flavors and acidity, resulting in a finely balanced aromatic coffee with robust flavor. All Graycliff coffees are delivered whole bean (not ground) in two 3/4 pound (350 gram) packages, in either Signature House Blend or 100 percent Certified Organic Espresso.

New Budget-Friendlier Zippo Air Case Secures Lighters on Planes

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) removed the ban on common lighters in passenger cabins of commercial airlines in 2007, but torch lighters must still be stowed in checked luggage in approved containers. ZAC, the Zippo Air Case, is a convenient way to securely transport not only torch-style butane lighters—including Zippo Blu—in checked luggage when flying, but also previously-fueled traditional Zippo lighters. The unit replaces the previously available Zippo Cargo Case at a much friendlier price point— suggested retail is $7.95. The ZAC accommodates all Zippo models, and holds one or two lighters in a lightweight foam insert and features an easy-twist top.

Nano Cube Matures, Preserves Fine Cigars Under Climate Control

HavaCube cigar humidors are unique technological innovations designed to mature and preserve fine cigars over several years in a condition-controlled “cocoon.” The company’s newest model, the 100-cigar capacity Nano Cube, incorporates the same technology developed for the company’s larger models (which range from 200 to 800 cigar capacities). Sophisticated electronic subsystems ensure precise temperature (65 degrees Farenheit) and humidity levels, regardless of the external environment, and is entirely self-managed. The interior is lined with Spanish cedar, while the backlighted glass top is artfully engraved with the HavaCube logo. Temperature and water tank levels are displayed digitally for easy monitoring, and the unit only requires refilling on average every six months.

The unit measures approximately 15 inches square, and retail prices range from $8,000 to $15,000 depending on finish.
