It’s an honor for us to be apart of this amazing new book “Made to Last: A Compendium of Artisans, Trades & Projects” by Vanessa Murray! She wrote an amazing feature about us and many other artists in this beautifully designed book. Well worth it just to see all the great things still made by hand throughout the world.

Our Hendrick’s Gin BoomCase takes multiple days to make from start to finish. Because of how much is involved in this BoomCase we decided to put together this little video of some of what goes into making these limited edition BoomCases. Enjoy!
Announcing the Hendrick’s Gin x BoomCase collaboration!
Now available in our online store. Read the full press release below:
Hendrick’s Gin is pleased to announce its partnership with The BoomCase, maker of the original rechargeable vintage suitcase boom box, which this week unveiled a one-of- a-kind speaker system that includes a full Hendrick’s Gin Tea Set. The collaboration embodies the eccentricity of the world-renowned gin brand, combined with the innovation of The BoomCase, creating the most unusual electric speaker fit for the most refined tippler and appreciator of the art of entertainment.
Since 2009, The BoomCase founder Dominic Odbert has been creating speaker systems out of
vintage suitcases at his boutique studio in California, crafting a most unique product that blends imaginative sound engineering and superior design. No stranger to curious fusions, Hendrick’s Gin itself is made in tiny batches by a single stillman using a unique distillation technique. With a distinctive blend of botanicals and infusion of cucumber and rose petals, Hendrick’s has captivated the attention and hearts of bartenders and bon vivants alike.
As The BoomCase strives to further push the innovation of sound design while preserving the
heritage of the past, and Hendrick’s continues to surprise and delight its drinkers with the art of the unusual, the two entities are an impeccable match for brilliant revelry.
The limited edition collaboration, of which only 15 BoomCases will be available for purchase, will feature a 100 watt amplifier powering two 6.5″ woofers, one 5″ midrange speaker and four dome tweeters, offering full balanced sound in a portable package. The rechargeable lithium battery provides over 18+ hours of playtime per charge through an auxiliary cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth. The structure itself is handmade from birch wood and features leather trim, harris tweed and steel hardware. In addition to the speaker system, a Hendrick’s Gin Tea Set consisting of one tea pot, two tea cups, two saucers and a placeholder for a 750-ml. bottle (bottle not included) are all incorporated to aid in the celebration.
‘The collaboration between Hendrick’s Gin and The BoomCase was created with the aim to provide
its recipients with an extraordinary experience that can transcend the test of time, as only music and merriment can do. We hope that this most unusual way to toast the town while listening to tunes will be an absolute delight to its owner,” said Fred Parent, Hendrick’s Gin Ambassador.
This unique item is available for purchase only at http://store.theboomcase.com/. For more information

We are excited to be a part of Gorilly’s Beta launch in San Francisco along with Topo Designs and DODOcase. Gorilly (www.gorilly.com) is an innovative new web application that lets people try products (like BoomCase) in person before buying them online (you would buy directly through The BoomCase website).
With Gorilly, you can try a BoomCase in person and get feedback from an actual product owner – it’s as simple as two people meeting! It’s a cool way to get a feel for the quality of BoomCase products in person, and then pick the one you want on our website. The Beta is just in San Francisco for now – take a look at www.gorilly.com. If you are in SF sign up and share : )
A sneak peek of our new Real Chrome BoomCases.
This not spray paint but a thin layer of real chrome plating applied using a special process that allows it to stick to any material. It can be done in any color and works best on smooth surfaces (leather,plastic etc.) We are told we can do tweed/fabric suitcases but not sure how its gonna turn out. Soon we will try 🙂
Stay tuned for more details including the option to Chrome most BoomCases we have available in our online store. These models will be for sale shortly.
