Hochstadter’s Slow & Low Whiskey Ready-made cocktails are wariness-inducing, oftentimes saccharine malt beverages — the drinkers of which refer to them as “bevvies”. Slow & Low is not part of that drinker’s scourge.

Hochstadter’s Slow & Low Whiskey
Ready-made cocktails are wariness-inducing, oftentimes saccharine malt beverages — the drinkers of which refer to them as “bevvies”. Slow & Low is not part of that drinker’s scourge. Rather, this is a rye-whiskey-based Old Fashioned simmered with raw honey, orange peel and horehound to produce an easy-drinking cocktail right out of the bottle. Hochstadter’s started making these pre-made batches back in the late 1800s, so raise a glass and salute history. Then raise another glass and salute the first glass. Then, well, you get the idea. $20-34 ()
Logitech-TK820-All-in-One-Wireless-Keyboard-Gear-Patrol

Logitech Wireless All-in-One Keyboard
You know those comeback movies about the nerdy high school girl who shows up at the five-year reunion as a supermodel bombshell? This keyboard is kinda like that, only Logitech was never all that nerdy or unattractive. It’s trim and stylish; it’s wireless and the trackpad is huge. It’ll support Windows 8 gestures and be the belle of the ball. Or at least be really good-looking on your workspace. $100
2014-Porsche-Panamera-Gear-Patrol

Porsche Panamera
Whether you consider it desirable evolution or blasphemous nonsense, it’s hard to deny that Porsche’s Panamera sedan makes quite a statement. Its performance figures line up with the brand’s heritage; its second set of seats and doors do not. The Panamera is getting a facelift for 2014, regardless of whether you believe it even deserves a face: the front fascia, windows, roofline and rear fender are all new and promise a more svelte look. porsche.com
GH-Bass-and-Co-Weejuns-Gear-Patrol

G.H. Bass & Co. Weejuns
An oft-recited bit of party small talk is that pennies are economically useless, each costing more than their value to produce. With a relaunch of their heritage-heavy, outdoorsy penny loafers (featuring a Facebook app that lets users style a penny with their own visage and a campaign video replete with goofy models and apropos music), Bass is making pennies powerful again. The shoe line boasts fresh styles as well as classics, and for each pair of Weejuns sold, they’ll donate 100 pennies (that’s a buck, genius) to the I Have A Dream Foundation. ghbass.com

Dsptch-Case-and-Pack-Collection-Gear-Patrol

2013 DSPTCH Case and Pack Collection
Not to be relegated to only hocking their oh-so-fine camera straps, DSPTCH has introduced some ballistic nylon bags and gear cases into the mix. The Ruckpack is military-esque, featuring plenty of pockets and a trick rigid polyurethane/aluminum back panel to alleviate strain from heavy loads. The Slingpack is small but capable, with multiple pockets — including a secret compartment and a padded sleeve for laptops. Cases for Macbooks and iPads of all sizes are available too, each with storage for cables and accessories. dsptch.com ()
