First you drink your scotch, then you make a bicycle!

The beautifully grained bike is constructed from about 15 staves taken from second-fill Glenmorangie whiskey casks. The Glenmorangie Original by Renovo bicycle, a collaboration between the famous Scotch whisky producer and Oregon-based wooden bicycle manufacturer Renovo, the unique new bikes can be yours for $7000.

They are the first in the world to feature a frame constructed entirely from used white-oak whisky barrels. This isn’t a bike to put in your living room as a showpiece. It is meant to be ridden. Wood absorbs vibrations better than carbon fiber and it only weighs 21.75 pounds due to its hollow frame. So, scotch-drinking bikers, get the bike of your dreams!

This is Glenmorangie’s second year for its Beyond the Cask series when it partners with another company to find unique uses for its staves. The ultimate in sustainability! Kudos for going green…
