Do you have $500 to spend on gin accessories? I don't have $500 to spend on gin accessories.

But hey, some people do.

For those of you who do, you might want this. You can place it next to your gold-plated whiskey soda stream! Or your sterling silver tequila sunrise pitcher with self-orange juicer and Baccarat crystal grenadine decanter! Of course, it would fit beautifully with your virgin-blown glass, emerald-encrusted margarita tumblers. The drink itself made with rare tropical limes that are only ripe for five hours of the year, and rimmed with moon salt.

Kidding aside, if you do get one, um, invite the Prof over for drinks, will ya? We'll bring the gin. Here's the press release:

"The Gin Wheel is a revolutionary new collaboration between Bombay Sapphire EAST and internationally acclaimed design firm, AvroKO – whose high-profile restaurant clients include LAVO, Beauty & Essex and Saxon & Parole in NYC.  Marking AvroKO’s first ever brand collaboration on an original design, the product of this partnership between two venerated artisans is the limited edition “Bombay Sapphire East Gin Wheel.” It is the perfect gift for the ultimate home entertainer and just in time for Gin & Tonic season this Summer !

Inspired by the classic “Lazy Susan” turntable, the limited edition Gin Wheel is a modern twist modeled after the time honored tradition of home entertaining and social gatherings throughout the world.  Hand-crafted from exotic walnut, the portable unit spins on a brushed stainless steel plate and opens up to reveal sleek and hidden alcoves that house everything one needs to make the perfect Sapphire EAST “Gin & Tonic Reimagined” at home – botanicals, garnish, ice, high-quality bar tools, glassware, removable cutting boards, coasters and custom made aluminum tongs that double as a locking mechanism.  The Gin Wheel’s unique design marries style, history and superior functionality for the revival of the classic cocktail, the Gin & Tonic. Taking inspiration from the recent resurgence in Spain, with multiple specialty “Gin & Tonic” bars elevating the drink to an art form, the Bombay Sapphire East Gin Wheel celebrates the cocktail by housing all the essential tools to concoct this reborn classic. The perfect Gin & Tonic focuses on attention to detail and an imaginative use of garnishes, such as peppercorn, fruit, or cinnamon sticks to bring out the flavor of the gin. Infused with Thai lemongrass and Vietnamese Black Peppercorn, Bombay Sapphire East gin lends itself to plenty of mixing and matching.
