Textile maker Harris Tweed Hebrides and Johnnie Walker have partnered to create a new tweed fabric that smells just like a bottle of Black Label. (And that’s a good thing). The scent simulates the pleasant aromas of a glass of whisky, described by the booze brand as “rich malt, golden vanilla, red fruit and dark chocolate tones.” It’s permanently infused into the fabric using a micro-encapsulation process so tough that the aroma can even withstand a round of dry cleaning. Production is currently limited to the cloth itself, but according to CNET, Italian designer Angelos Bratis is slated to create a line of clothing using the fabric. Harris Tweed Hebrides also makes menswear including tweed neckties and blazers, so something along the lines of a suit jacket is a distinct possibility.

As for the actual research behind the fabric, whisky lovers everywhere have Heriot-Watt University’s School of Textiles and Design to thank. Sláinte, guys.
