Well, don’t be surprised if this turns out to be the famed Jose Cuervo 1800 Anejo, a connoisseur’s Tequila made for those who appreciate the finest Tequila that money can buy.

1800 is a special year in the history of Tequila, as this year marked the first time that Tequila was successfully aged in wood. Containing one of the purest bases, a  100% extract from the blue agave plant native to Jalisco, Mexico, Launched first in 1975 as a premium sipping Tequila, the Tequila is a dark amber in colour with copper highlights and comes in a splendid Inca-esque bottle.

This spirit has a heady fragrance, combining the heady aromas of roasted nuts, dark toffee, toasty coconut, mocha and brown spices. This intense beginning gives way to a full-bodied palate of roasted nutds, chocolate covered dates and figs, perfumed spices and toasty oak notes. The finish comprises spicy, sweet toffee and oak spice. All in all, the taste is very balanced and luxurious.

Travel buddies you can’t do without!

Imagine this: for years, you have been planning that once in a lifetime trip to Norway to witness the supremely magnificent Aurora Borealis. You brave the Arctic wind chills for long hours and you are finally there, all excited to capture the long-anticipated Northern Lights, and just before you are able to get your best shot, your camera battery goes dead. Or imagine going to the US to attend your daughter’s graduation ceremony and instead of feeling fresh and energetic, you feel drained and jetlagged because you couldn’t sleep a wink during the flight.

Travel enthusiasts all around the world swear that it is the ‘little things’ that can go a long way in ruining your trip. These are lack of sleep, drained batteries, stomach bugs,  infections due to unhygienic restrooms, misplaced travel documents and luggage issues, to name a few.

Here are five simple travel hacks from Bengaluru Duty Free to make you a smart traveller.

Sleep set 

Sleep Set

A good peaceful sleep is without question the most important factor that can make or break a day. A good sleep keeps you fresh, energized and active. Only if you are well rested can you feel kicked about bungee jumping in New Zealand or skiing in Alaska or deep sea diving in Malaysia.

Bengaluru Duty Free offers you the complete sleep set – a comfortable neck pillow and a soft and cosy eye mask that will make you fall asleep as comfortably as if you were at home. Feel refreshed once you have reached your destination.

This highly useful accessory can be pre-ordered at http://bit.ly/1vzAs96 for just $14.

Toilet seat cover

toilet seat

A good restroom session in the morning can make your day pleasant. You can be in Cherrapunji, the wettest place on earth or be somewhere in Egypt literally sweating your pants off, but nothing can disrupt your mood if you have managed to get done with your morning routine conveniently. However, when travelling, it is not always possible to get access to a luxurious, hygienic restroom with your favourite magazines on the side shelf.

So pre-order yourself a simple yet cool travel hack – Travel Blue’s portable toilet seat cover. Containing 10 easily disposable covers in a pocket-size pack, this travel accessory affords ideal hygiene protection.

Pre-order now at http://bit.ly/1vzAs96 for just $2.

Carry safe wallet

wallet

When travelling, international passengers need to carry important travel documents like passports, visas, permits, foreign currency, travel cards, hotel reservation documents, identity proofs, you name it.  Our world is still not the way John Lennon or Jaden Smith imagined it to be, so until somebody invents digitized passports and travel documents, you need to constantly ensure their safety when carrying them around.

The Travel Blue carry safe wallet is compact, with multiple sections to hide away your important documents and an ideal foil for the sharpest thieves you may encounter. Travel safe!

Pre-order now at http://bit.ly/1vzAs96 for just $10.

Worldwide adaptor set

While travelling, we need gadgets to capture, record and share our experiences, not to mention those we need for our personal comforts. So that you continue going about your routine without any interruption while travelling, you need to keep charging your gadgets. A common mistake travellers often make is assuming that their chargers can be plugged in everywhere.

Fear not, the worldwide adaptor set, with its multiple pin attachments, is your one-stop solution for all your gadget woes.

Pre-order this nifty accessory for just $12 at http://bit.ly/1vzAs96.

Combination strap

combination strap

A luggage bag is a reflection of your personality, a travel companion that tells stories of your travels. Many of us are emotionally attached to our carry bags. Despite this, identifying your bag from the tons of bags on the luggage belt can be a major task. Sometimes, the lock system of your bag may also get ripped while travelling. These are common situations many travellers find themselves in. If you don’t want that to happen to your luggage, order a Travel Blue Combination Strap today. It’s a unique solution that helps you to not just identify your bags but also to keep them safe.
