Wingtip had the distinct pleasure of hosting the San Francisco chapter of Red Bar for their latest meet-up. The group of watch collectors visited our recently-renovated wine cave, and, in between sips of Balvenie and Glenfiddich, the eagle-eyed fanatics perused each other’s collections. Featured guest Michael Pearson, North America director of Bremont Chronometers, showed off the wares of the five-year-old watch brand, which fused Swiss Aviation watch tradition with UK style. The custom watchbands by Johnny Straps also had the crowd ogling. See the gallery after the jump.
We here at Wingtip strive to do things in a certain traditional way. We make Manhattans the way they have always been made. We make Old Fashioneds the old fashioned way.

[Then] I went to the bartender community, because I believe in their pulse. The first round of responses was, The two sherry finishes are nice, but they’re not on par with the other three. So we set those aside [and] started to focus on the Sauternes, the Madeira, and the Port finishes.”
We are thrilled to invite you to this Friday’s Valhalla Dinner, hosted by Highland Park’s Brand Ambassador, Martin Daraz.
Let’s just say, this is a BIG deal for scotch drinkers and foodies, alike.
For this one special night, eat like valkyries, gods and goddesses as we toast to Thor, Loki, Freya and Odin, the four rare expressions of the Highland Park Valhalla Collection. In fact, three of these expressions are no longer available for purchase, making this an extraordinary opportunity to be in the presence of greatness.
We know our customers already appreciate craftsmanship: suits made by hand rather than machines, benchmade shoes, hand-painted cufflinks, to name a few. Machines have taken over so much of the world’s production that sometimes it’s hard to remember that something was ever done by hand. Embroidery is a good example.
