The Orphan Barrel® project was started to share long-forgotten barrels of rare whiskey discovered in old rickhouses and distilleries. Each release is hand-bottled—and once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. You and five bourbon-curious friends will visit the legendary Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky, to go barrel hunting, tasting recently discovered bourbons and creating two completely unique Orphan Barrel variants to be hand-bottled with labels designed exclusively for you. You’ll receive 24 bottles each of the remaining stocks of eight different Orphan Barrel bourbons—including the variants created with you—along with a bespoke whiskey cabinet crafted in Kentucky to house the collection, barware, and a leather-bound book about your whiskey. With purchase of The Orphan Barrel Project, Neiman Marcus will donate $5,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation. $125,000

This guitar, designed by Billy Gibbons and built by Bolin guitars, is a modern riff on the classic 1961 Gibson SG.

From air guitar to heirloom, these are instant classics commissioned by Texas music legends. Designed by rock guitar icon Billy Gibbons, this is a modern riff on the classic 1961 Gibson SG and is the ZZ Top legend’s ultimate dream guitar. For the musician who blends folk, swing, blues, jazz, and gospel with country and western, a rosewood and abalone guitar was handmade by Lyle Lovett’s longtime colleague Bill Collings. Master luthiers John and Jake Bolin of Bolin Guitars have built this guitar to the exact specifications of the prolific American musician and songwriter Steve Miller. Getting one of these special commissions is really cool, but how you’ll get it is even cooler, backstage at the musician’s concert.
