Forget the car commercials, with the classic (but predictable) type, the brooding back-lighting of Italianate statues, and the sounds of immaculate tyres, or perfectly shod feed, scrunching across the highly-styled gravel. (Styled gravel? Honestly?)
This gift is what tells someone that they’ve actually arrived.
Yes, they may have had an inkling.
But a gift of Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky. In a presentation case. With glasses. That’s a sure and inalienable sign. Even more reliable (in these uncertain times) than having your name on the door.
It means: Esteem. Respect. Regard.
It means that what you do does not go unrecognised. And you can share the rewards with anyone you choose too. (Please choose me!)
We raise a glass – to you.
