Sea Island Coffee, one of Europe’s leading specialists in rare and exotic coffees, supplied luxury Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee gift sets to the GQ Man of the Year Awards 2011 VIP Goodie Bag in association with Alfred Dunhill.
This gift set is one of Sea Island Coffee’s most prestigious and bestselling items. Winner of a Gold Great Taste Award 2010, many connoisseurs agree that Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is one of the world's best. Guy Wilmot of Sea Island Coffee said, “It has an exquisite balance of aroma, body and acidity - Jamaica Blue Mountain is a very special coffee indeed. It also has a mellow sweet aftertaste and a ‘Blue Mountain’ creaminess that separates it from all other coffees, so I think the celebrities who received it will be surprised and satisfied by our gift to them.”
Guy Wilmot continued, “Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee is the signature luxury rare coffee, so it’s only fitting for such a stylish event as the GQ Awards and its guests that they get the best coffee in the world. I am honoured that such notable figures as Johnny Depp, U2, Kylie Minogue, Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne MP, Tinie Tempah, Tommy Hilfiger, Duran Duran Emma Watson, Mario Testino, Keith Richards and Charlize Theron were given our Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee inside the GQ Awards 2011 Goodie Bag.”
