A specially designed Tailgate Trailer by New York interior designer Brad Ford in collaboration with leather goods brand Moore & Giles is being offered as one of this year’s Christmas Fantasy Gifts from Neiman Marcus.
Bulleit Woody Whiskey Trailer
The first Woody tailgate trailer by Brad Ford and Moore & Giles was launched at the 2011 DINING BY DESIGN in New York and auctioned for charity as a part of DIFFA’s “30 for 30” auction featuring 30 exceptional, one-of-a-kind auction packages to commemorate 30 years of fighting HIV/AIDS.
Now, available through the catalog for $150,000, this version is made with aged oak wood (much from reclaimed Bulleit Bourbon casks) instead of the Sapele Mahogany and Ash in the original.
From the description in the 2012 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book:
A chorus of cheers rings out the minute you pull up. Tailgating will never be the same now that your Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Woody-Tailgate Trailer is on the scene. Designed by interior designer Brad Ford, it’s impressive on the outside, but what’s on the inside truly astounds: sleek leather furnishings and details from Moore & Giles, rich wood finishings (aged oak handcrafted from reclaimed Bulleit Bourbon casks), elegant glassware, and a top-notch entertainment system, including a flat-screen TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, and a state-of-the-art sound system, plus a one-year supply of Bulleit Bourbon and Bulleit Rye*. You park, open the hatch, and slide out the bar—cocktails anyone???
