The Partnership

tshirtOS is a 'Stay True' initiative from Ballantine's.

Because we're more used to blending the finest of whiskies, we partnered up with two wearable tech specialists to help us develop the shirt. Initially with Cute Circuit, a London based fashion-tech company, to create the prototype we launched 18 months ago. And then with San-Francisco start-up Switch Embassy, led by fashion tech pioneer Alison Lewis, to make the new tshirtOS that we launched in early 2014.

The first run of 25 shirts are now in the hands of true individuals around the world who’ll be using them to leave their own unique impression. tshirtOS is not yet available to purchase.
