We always get excited about new partnerships, and this one has us absolutely over the moon.
Whiskey Leatherworks has partnered up with American heritage brand, Mackenzie Golf Bags, of Beaverton, Oregon to create the Sip & Swing Golf Bag. Each golf bag is made, one at a time, of the same USA-Made sturdy wax canvas and Chicago-tanned Horween Leather, iconic to the Whiskey Leatherworks brand. This is one of the most highly sought-after and high-quality vegetable-tanned leathers available. Chromexcel has been made virtually the same way since 1913 with their proprietary mix of bark extracts and natural agents that give Chromexcel its heavy vegetable tannage.
The construction is built around a carbon-fiber batten, which acts as a spine while adding virtually zero weight to the golf bag. Many of the leather components are built around heavy gauge vinyl which ensures the bag will last a lifetime. All of the hardware, including the reinforced top ring, is stainless steel. The design of this bag was inspired by the classic Scottish walking golf bag and weighs just over 3 lbs and can fit up to a full set of clubs. Our favorite feature is the custom WLW flask holder that Mackenzie thoughtfully tucked away in a zipped-up pocket in the bottom of the bag. Your bag comes with a monogrammed copper & leather-wrapped flask of your choosing. Just leave us a note in the "notes to maker" section and we will happily accommodate your requests.
Every WLW>< MacKenzie golf bag is crafted by skilled artisans, one at a time. Our simple approach employs the use of old-world techniques and the selection of the finest materials available ensuring every golf bag we bring into the world is truly a handmade original, built to stand the test of time.
