DEATH WISH NITRO BREW COFFEE
For those who need more than your average amount of caffeine, there's Death Wish Coffee, one of the strongest in the world. And for those with the same caffeine needs who might be a little more active or have an aversion to hot drinks, Death Wish now offers a canned nitro cold brew as well. They take Death Wish Coffee and infuse it with nitrogen before filling these 11oz cans which are sold in four packs. No sugar, cream, or preservatives are added, but if it's not the strongest coffee you've ever had, Death Wish will give you your money back.
No, it's not a fancy new container to hide your stash in. Instead, Potbox is a premium cannabis service, delivering hand-selected strains straight to your door every month. Currently limited to service in Los Angeles and San Francisco, the service starts with their curators asking what your preferences are, then tailoring your selection to your needs. Each box arrives with two four gram containers of ethically-grown bud, as well as two pre-rolled joints wax-sealed in glass tubes. Each shipment also includes lab results outlining THC, CBD, and other chemical levels, as well as info on where it was grown, its species, and more, so you know exactly what it is you're smoking.
BLACK INSOMNIA COFFEE
While some occasions call for coffee, others call for coffee with enough caffeine to not only wake you up but to jumpstart you into another stratosphere. That's what Black Insomnia Coffee delivers as the strongest coffee in the world. They blend Ugandan, Guatemalan, and Brazilian coffee beans that are roasted to provide plenty of flavor along with a caffeine kick that should be memorable, to say the least. Each 12 fl.oz cup has a minimum of 702mg of caffeine, which is about 300% stronger than a typical cup of joe.
WHITLEY NEILL GIN
Inspired by a rich English distilling heritage and his wife's African roots, Johnny Neill crafted this London Dry Gin using a unique blend of botanicals. Neill comes from a famous family of UK distillers, and the eighth generation gin maker uses a 100-year-old copper pot still to create his spirits. This handcrafted dry gin uses some traditional botanicals and some that are less common like Florentine Iris root from Italy to sharpen the citrus notes along with African botanicals like Physalis fruit and extracts from the Baobab Tree which is known as the Tree of Life.
CASA PUJOL 87 TEQUILA
Añejo and Reposado tequilas are aged in wood and give the liquor a sweeter, milder flavor. But there's still something incredible about pure, unaged Blanco tequila. Distilled from 100% blue agave from the Jalisco highlands of Mexico, Casa Pujol 87 is an excellent example of a Blanco expression with classic tequila characteristics. And the clean, beautiful bottle design fits the brand's mission as well, designed by Monterrey, Mexico-based studio Anagrama.
DEDICATO A DAVID TABLETOP CIGAR CUTTER
Inspired by the cutters used to halve cigars over a century ago, the Dedicato A David Tabletop Cigar Cutter is a useful throwback to a simpler time. Its sharp stainless steel blade is ideal for slicing through wrappers and leaves, and the 20mm hole will accommodate most cigars. It comes attached to a wooden base and has a handsome ox horn handle.
VAPIUM SUMMIT + VAPORIZER
Built to handle adverse conditions, the Vapium Summit+ Vaporizer is the ideal implement for the outdoorsman. Its rugged high-impact polycarbonate body is the first to be IP54-rated as splash-proof.

Available in black, blue, or green.
TEXAS BRAND COFFEE
Harvested from small farms in Chiapas, Mexico, Texas Brand Coffee is made in limited quantities and arrives in these standout pewter labeled, French-made aluminum bottles. The coffee beans themselves are roasted, ground, and bottled by Big Bend Roasters in Marfa, Texas and sold exclusively for No. 4 St. James. Each bottle holds 1/2 pound of coffee which is enough to make about sixteen cups of java.
STONE FEAR. MOVIE. LIONS. IPA
The first year-round offering from Stone Brewing Richmond, Fear. Movie. Lions is all about location. The beer is not only Stone's first attempt at a New England style IPA — unfiltered with loads of citrus and tropical fruit notes minus the traditional hop bite — but is named using the what3words convention that encodes geographic coordinates into three dictionary words, pinpointing the location the IPA was conceived. Available in 16oz cans exclusively throughout the East Coast this summer.
MATCHLESS COFFEE SODA
Not to be confused with cold brew coffee, Matchless Coffee Soda is a locally roasted, flash-chilled coffee that is lightly sweetened and carbonated before canning. They don't dilute the product with seltzer, soda water, or fruit juice and its brewed in large batches for an optimal extraction rate so the coffee's base origin is fully expressed. Best served over ice with a citrus peel.
BREAKSIDE BREWERY LUNCH BREAK IPA
Known for their innovate and diverse beers, Breakside Brewery continues to grow and gain recognition. Lunch Break IPA may be the brewery's flagship beer, brewed with Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade and Centennial hops for a vibrant aroma and flavor perfect for warm weather. Built to enjoy on your lunch break, or any time of day at 4.7% ABV, the session IPA recently took home a Gold Medal in the 2018 World Beer Cup.
WOODFORD RESERVE BATCH PROOF BOURBON
For Woodford Reserve fans looking for a little more heat, the distillery is releasing a limited run of batch proof bourbon. Part of their Master's Collection line of limited and at times experimental releases, the Versailles, Kentucky based distillery bottled their famous bourbon between 121 and 126 proof — a significant jump from the 90 proofer you typically enjoy. They did this using 120-130 barrels batched together and then bottled for this special release.
VERVE X DRIPKIT SINGLE-SERVE POUROVER COFFEE
A collaboration between Dripkit and Santa Cruz-based Verve Coffee Roasters, these single-serve pour over packets let you enjoy flavorful coffee no matter where you find yourself. Each pack contains 15 grams of freshly roasted Seabright House Blend or Ethiopia Duromina coffee in a small, pour over brewer that sits snugly on the top of your cup. Add hot water and you've got a delicious cup of joe in minutes.
AMERICAN PRESS COFFEE MAKER
Combining nuanced, balanced flavors with Keurig-like convenience, the American Press is an entirely new way to brew a cup of coffee. You use it by pressing down on the top, forcing your water through a patented reusable pod and up to the top, where it's ready to pour. A 100-micron steel filter ensures you won't end up with sediment in your joe, and the pressure-based brewing process leaves you with an espresso-inspired flavor profile that's less bitter than a cup of French Press. Its double-wall Tritan carafe can handle up to 14 ounces of coffee at a time.
