Lifehack: Use Snooze to Repurpose your Old iPhone September 02 2015, 0 Comments

With the anticipated release of a new generation of iPhones fast-approaching, many of us have already moved on from the iPhone 4 and 5, or plan to very soon. If your old phone model was worn beyond trade-in standards, it's likely you still have it at home, forgotten in the back of the junk drawer.

Instead of leaving it out to pasture with loose change, mystery cords, and probably dead batteries, give your old iPhone a new life with Snooze! Just charge up your old phone and leave it in the dock for a sleek, snoozable alarm clock. You can keep your iPhone connected to your wi-fi to catch up on your latest Netflix episode as you drift off to dreamland, or disconnect from wi-fi entirely for a totally upcycled iPhone whose only mission in life is to improve your wake-up routine. Download our free alarm clock app built just for Snooze at the iTunes store. 



Check out more great ideas and useful tips on up-cycling your old iPhone

  


Feature Friday | Gear Diary Reviews Bifold and Sleeve August 14 2015, 0 Comments

Dan Cohen of Gear Diary has taken on the daunting task of comparing our most popular in the range of Wally Wallets all by himself. First up: His favorite, the Wally Bifold! Here's a snippet from his hands-on review entitled "The Distil Union Wally Bifold Wallet Is Minimalist Without the Minimal"

"It is, by far, the best minimalist wallet I have tried. Because it is a bifold this particular minimalist wallet holds quite a bit." –Dan Cohen, Gear Diary

So that's what he means by "Minimalist Without the Minimal" – super slim, but perfectly capable of holding and in fact organizing his cards and cash.

He admits in his follow-up article "Distil Union Wally Sleeve Takes Minimalist Wallets to the Extreme" that the Wally Sleeve is a bit too minimal for his daily wallet needs. Instead, like Lindsay, he finds Sleeve perfect for carrying 10 or so business cards: 

"[Wally Sleeve] is for the person who wants to take their minimalist wallet to an entirely new, and thinner level. And while I don’t see myself using it as my wallet I do see keeping it around as a business card holder. The thin design and good looks make it easy to carry and impressive to use when getting a card to someone." –Dan Cohen, Gear Diary

We bet you're looking forward to Dan's thoughts and photos of the iPhone Wallys more than we are – it's this kind of blogging that truly helps people make informed decisions. You can reference our handy Which Wally flowchart, read through Dan's posts, and select the Wally you were meant to carry.




Getting Our Hands Dirty for NYNOW August 13 2015, 0 Comments

Do you ever get that itch to step away from glowing screens and get your hands dirty? Well, that's exactly what happened to us – so we answered the call and dusted of Lindsay's screen-printing supplies to print up these postcards: Our favorite quote lately, printed on Maple veneer. 





We also printed a sweet red 'distilunion' logo on some of our favorite Moleskine Cahier notebooks, little kraft boxes and the flipside of the postcard. To complete a few special DU Snapshot Boxes, we're adding a hot red Le Pen and our hot-off-the-press DU Lookbooks. Prettay, prettay sharp. 

If you're attending NYNOW, stroll by our booth #4141 to say hello and grab a copy of the lil' Lookbook for yourself.

Feature Friday | It's a Wally Double Feature July 31 2015, 0 Comments

Recently we were fortunate enough to share both Wally Bifold and Wally Case with KC Kim of Articles of Leather. Lucky for us and for you, he scored both with high marks and snapped some lovely photos:
 

"The slim size is a major plus for me as my previously wallet was a George Constanza worthy fat wallet that would bulge out of my front pocket. The Wally Bifold is perfect size to carry safely in the front pocket. The easy access of your cards and cash makes this wallet worth buying. Rating: 9.7 out of 10" – KC Kim, Articles of Leather



And then his Costanza wallet was officially kicked to the curb when he tested Wally Case, which he said was –
"...the best implementation of a wallet to a iPhone 6 case. I can leave my bulky wallet behind and carry this sleek and minimalist wallet and iPhone case in one. The Distil Union Wally Wallet Case for iPhone 6 is truly one of the best iPhone 6 cases that I have ever owned." -– KC Kim, Articles of Leather
That's high praise. Many thanks and highest fives to KC for taking the time to test not one but TWO Wallys. We're pleased to see that they both made such a good impression.

Do you run a blog or review channel and think one of our Wally Wallets would make a good fit? Get in touch, silly!



DU's Favorite Crowd-Funding Campaigns in July July 23 2015, 0 Comments


Vector Scissors
 Honestly, we're not sure why these handy straight-line scissors aren't flying off the Indiegogo shelves!



HydroHammock Hot tub x hammock. Pretty sure life doesn't get any better than this



iblazr2 The first iblazr was great, and this new version makes some irresistible improvements! Their campaign has already wrapped, but you can now pre-order yours.



E1 Camera These guys are revolutionizing the camera industry. Not even an exaggeration – check out the E1 camera and see if your mind isn't blown... 


Sideclick Yes! A volume button for our Apple Remote. Sold. And that's just the start of why we backed Sideclick...

And last but not least, some local love!

"Little Beaver Builds a Bed"

2 Days After Prime Day = Mule Day July 17 2015, 0 Comments

Did you score anything on Prime Day?! There's been some hilarious criticism of the event (and apparently there was backlash??), but Amazon stands strong that Prime Day was more successful than Black Friday. Here at DU, our purchases ended up being purely coincidental with Prime Day.


We've been talking about a set of copper mugs for Moscow Mules for months... of course the ones featured on Prime Day sale sold out before we could snatch 'em up (who thinks about vodka at 3am?!), so we made our own assortment of mismatched beauties – and added a case of Gosling's Ginger Beer to the cart for good measure. A cordless studio vacuum also made the must-have list, but we didn't get that at a crazy discount, either. What we did get was a bunch of rad/helpful stuff on our doorstep in just 2 days, so you're not going to hear us complain about being Prime members.

Today, we celebrated Prime Day with a Mexican Mule and a Southern Mule (which Lindsay thought she invented, but apparently it's already a thing). We also celebrated the fact that it is Friday and we work in a studio where we can mix cocktails at 3:00 without an ounce of guilt. Cheers!


As your consolation prize for a bummer Prime Day, here is Lindsay's Southern Mule recipe:

1/2 lemon
2oz. Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka
4oz. Gosling's Ginger Beer
4 dashes Fee Brother's peach bitters

Cracked ice
Copper mug


Cut 1/2 a lemon and squeeze the juice into a copper mug. When you're done, put the lemon on there, too.

Fill your mug halfway with ice you've cracked using Studio Neat's Ice Kit, or whack ice cubes in your hand with the back of a big metal spoon. Either way, cracking ice is surprisingly satisfying.

Add vodka and ginger beer in a 1-to-2 ratio (more or less depending on the size of your mug and how hard your day was).

Add bitters, stir, and sip!

Variations: 
+ Lime and Tequila = Mexican Mule
+ Lime and Rum = Cuban Mule (aka Dark n' Stormy)
+ Lime and Bourbon = Kentucky Mule
+ Grapefruit and Gin = Nasty Mule (just kidding, it's a Gin Gin Mule apparently, but someone thinks gin tastes nasty, so..)




Feature Friday | YOU on Amazon! July 10 2015, 1 Comment

We'd like to take a moment to thank Amazon shoppers for taking the time to leave their feedback. From first impressions to real-world experience, the Amazon community has blown us away with their support, especially for Wally Bifold. One of these days we're going to reply to every 5-star review to say thank you! Until then, we'd like to feature YOU on this week's Feature Friday.



Beyond ratings, customer service is extremely important to us. So is a positive experience with our products. Any negative reviews are an opportunity for us to respond publicly and directly to troubleshoot and hopefully solve issues together. They're also a helpful glimpse into ways our products could use improvement. It takes a village to build a better wallet (isn't that the saying?)....

It's also given us insight into the power we hold as customers, and how much a review really does matter – especially a bad one! And so as customers, we've been writing more reviews for products we've purchased, and are reaching out directly to companies for help before writing a terrible review. Nothing like running your own small business to foster sympathy for other businesses; even larger companies get the benefit of the doubt before we launch into a scathing 140-character tirade on twitter (which we'd never do anyway, because manners).... With the level playing field of social media, we can all hold each other accountable. And that's a good thing! As is being mindful that there's a person on the other end of the line, so here's to being civil as customers and getting better customer service just by being nice.

Distil Union's June Instagram Highlights June 30 2015, 0 Comments



+ The month of June on the DU instagram started off with a bang -- literally! At the annual Spoleto Finale, the fireworks and St. Paul and the Broken Bones (from Nate's home state of Alabama!) did not disappoint.

+ We shared a sneak-peek of Nate working on rough mockups of our next next product, and we asked for any guesses as to what it might be.. a duct-tape or RFID-blocking Wally wallet? Or is it even Wally related??... 

+ Got our Pebble Time in the mail – first thoughts: Love the color e-paper display and its size (i.e. smaller and lighter than Apple Watch), though not sure we'll use all that many apps... we'll share our thoughts here on The Distillery after we spend some time passing it around the studio for testing!

+ Brian was the first to receive the much-anticipated Coin! Setting up this digital credit card was a breeze, as Pemba the studio cat looks on in envy (you see, cats don't carry wallets, and Coin + Wally is a match made in minimalist wallet heaven). Look for a blog post soon about our experience with Coin, part of The Future of Your Wallet.

+ Recently, Nate and Lindsay landed in Tulum, Mexico for a week of work outside the office – we're calling it a workcation! Just up the road is the spot where TEDxTulum was held a few months ago. So cool to see these big bold TED letters in the middle of a beach jungle paradise!

+ I spy a #WallyintheWild – Lindsay's Wally Stick-On is made for traveling light, with just a card and some folded pesos for a morning snack at the cafe up the road. Glad Nate brought his Wally Euro, too, for receipts and loose change – tasty pastor tacos in town at Antojitos La Chiapaneca for just 7 pesos! It doesn't get any better than loose-change tacos... Adios for now!


Feature Friday | Insider Pick at Business Insider June 26 2015, 0 Comments

Wally's on the inside, you guys!! On Business Insider that is – and twice in the last month! So it's only fitting that this Friday, we feature Wally Bifold's double-feature in Business Insider.

First, he appeared in May as part of a round-up of "24 Dapper Wallets to Polish Off Your Outfit" – where rubbing shoulders with the likes of Shinola and Jack Spade was flattering to say the least. Then earlier list week, Wally broke out on his own to shine in the limelight –

Distil Union is the company behind what may very well be the slimmest, most practical wallet on the market. Its Wally Bifold design is part wallet, part money clip, and all sorts of functional for your day-to-day. Business Insider

WOW, what a headline! Usually we're not into hyperbole, but.... The most practical wallet you'll ever use. We couldn't agree more, and we're beyond proud of Wally – and seriously, what are those 24,545 little tiny fires?!

When we shared this good news on Facebook, Paul Miller chimed in "Absolutely love this wallet!" and Stuart Bain shared his "BEST WALLET I have ever owned" review on Amazon. It's these personal shout-outs that mean so much more than we can say, which is why Lindsay responded thusly....


Truly, it has been a brilliant week – in the headlines and in our hearts. Thanks, y'all!




Crowd-Funding Campaigns to Throw Your Money At June 24 2015, 0 Comments


FOR SAFETY: Ding Bike Light 
A bike light that also illuminates the cyclist – this is literally brilliant! Called Ding, this Kickstarter can have all our money. Or at least enough for three Dings.



FOR HOME:
Floating Record Vertical Turntable
That moment you wish you hadn't seen a Kickstarter because you've gotta have it but it's on the pricey side...



FOR SPACE: LightSail
When Bill Nye says back a Kickstarter, we back the Kickstarter.... Plus, we really enjoyed the LightSail crowd-funding video because it's just so nostalgic and awesome watching Bill Nye explain stuff!



FOR FOOD: Lilo Planter
Who wouldn't want fresh herbs, all year round, at your fingertips in the adorable little Lilo. They more than doubled their goal – now Brian just has to decide which capsules he wants.  



FOR FUN: Cat Greeting Cards
Q: How can you resist these cards featuring tubby Pusheen-like cats by a guy named Mark?
A: You cannot.


And last but not least, we just have to mention: Lindsay just filled out the shipping survey for our Zero Waste cap that we mentioned in our last Kickstarter roundup – can't wait to easily access the bottom third of that lotion bottle!


Second Sunday on King Street – Hey, That's Our Street! June 22 2015, 0 Comments

Once a month we step out of our front door for Second Sunday, a pedestrian-only event where King St is closed off to traffic. Restaurants set up tables outside, buskers sing and play live music, and local businesses set up demos and sell wares in the sunshine. In fact, back when Snooze was on Kickstarter, we set up a bedroom scene to help get the word out to locals about our crowd-funding efforts.

For June's Second Sunday, we set up a table for locals to grab last-minute gifts: Wally wallets at a discount for Father's Day, complete with free Dad-approved gift wrapping. We also brought out a trash can for our very first Wally Trade-Up: Give us your old wallet or iPhone case for your choice of a FREE Wally Wallet! 



Since we were set up right in front of the DU studio, Nate treated anyone interested to a guided tour of our air-conditioned live/work space (yep, the office is actually the large living room of Nate's apartment upstairs).

We managed to sneak a stroll down King for a peek at the tiny house – because it's not every day you can walk down the middle of the street and step into a house!



After a long and sweaty day slingin' Wallys on the street, we captured all the unwanted-wallet booty:



It's a beautiful thing. We made a boatload of new friends, and so did Wally.



Leather. Aluminum. Wood. Felt. June 17 2015, 0 Comments

Looks like Wally Case and Wally Skin found themselves in the midst of some handsome company over at Solid2! Check their latest round-up of "Best Cases for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus" and do your iPhone a solid (get it?)... 




2015 Father's Day Gift Ideas June 16 2015, 0 Comments

It's getting down to the wire for Father's Day gifts, folks. If you're looking for some ideas for Dad, here are some of our favorites this year:

THE FOODIE FATHER: Charleston's favorite butcher, Ted, has a shirt dad will love for just $15, and a Bacon of The Month Club! Subscriptions start at $85 and are sure to please those pork-lovin' Pops out there. 



THE DAPPER DAD: We love the idea of making something for dad. If you're a DIYer and you missed J. Stark's wallet-making workshop at Candlefish, try this classy pocket-square tutorial from Brit + Co. It's a quick and easy gift for a dapper dad.



THE PRANKSTER POP: So your dad's a sharp shooter with a silly side? Check out this rubber band gun from Elastic Precision (and on sale starting at just $19.98 at Huckberry).


THE SWEETEST DAD IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM: You simply can't beat the Flow Hive, which raised over 17,000% of their goal on Indiegogo! That's right, the Father/Son team from Down Under raised over $12-million in funding and start shipping to their backers soon – but you'll have to order yours for next year's Father's Day on the Flow website, starting at $260.

And last but not least, did we mention that Wally is a good Dad's day gift? I mean. We kind of have to mention it – not just because we make 'em, but because our Dads love their Wally wallets and we know yours will, too. Nate's dad uses Wally Case for his iPhone, and Lindsay's dad uses Wally Bifold. Other sites like TrendHunter have put Wally on their Father's Day Gift Guides... We agree – Wallys make great gifts for Dad, and until Father's Day enjoy a 15% discount on all Wallys – so you can pick the perfect present for your particular Pop.



The Future of Your Wallet June 12 2015, 3 Comments

Back when Apple Pay was announced, we quickly hopped on board with the promise of a lighter wallet (or heck, no wallet). And now with Apple Passbook being updated and renamed Apple Wallet to now support retailer and loyalty cards, we're excited to be one step closer to the future of your wallet. While we wait for our favorite stores to accept Apple Pay, there are admittedly still cards we carry with us – which is where "smart" credit cards make us really excited. Minimizing what you carry every day is a passion of ours, which is why we've invented Wally wallets and keep pre-ordering each and every all-your-cards-in-just-one-card "smart" digital credit card.

Comparison of smart digital credit cards - Swyp, Plastc, Coin and Stratos

Each solution offers the same promise of reducing all your credit cards onto one card, but each has their own method, display, and delivery date. One thing they all appear to have in common: They work to pay for your coffee. Take a look at all the ways Wally and a digital credit card are a minimalist-wallet match made in heaven: 

Preorder Coin - Smart Digital Credit Card

Coin - Launched in November of 2013, Coin was ahead of their time – and themselves, apparently, because they're now a full year behind their original projected date. The good news is, just yesterday Brian got word that his Coin shipped! We can't wait to give it a try like these guys did with a beta version. While some pre-orders are currently shipping, new orders are pre-orders only for $100.

Preorder your Plastc Card for $20 off
Plastc
- While waiting patiently for Coin last year, Plastc came onto the scene in 2014. This digital card is Lindsay's favorite, with the touch e-ink display. We shook hands with these guys at CES in Las Vegas, and noticed the CEO Marc was carrying his business cards in a Wally Sleeve. We had a moment. Claiming to ship in "Summer 2015" (which in Charleston it feels summer is already upon us), you can pre-order one for $155 or take $20 off here.

"I will utilize Apple Pay because it’s simple and easy, but there are so many use cases in our world where I’m still going to need a physical card. There are so many things that point-of-sale machines just aren’t ready for yet." – Ryan Marquis, Plastc COO


Stratos smart card membership program
Stratos
- In the meantime, in March 2015 newcomer Stratos appeared on the scene AND started shipping the next month. Its included annual upgrades and the unique tap-to-interact are what differentiate this card from the rest. It's first come first served, with a "membership" cost of $95. We loved reading this hands-on with Stratos, and writer David sums up his experience well:

"There are a thousand upsides to a card like Stratos, even beyond finally ditching your gigantic George Costanza wallet. The story’s much bigger than slimming your wallet: It’s about making paying for things easier, more efficient, and more customer-friendly. Even if it does confuse a few bartenders in the process." –David Pierce, Wired


Swyp smart digital credit card
Swyp 
– And then there's this guy. Hop on the waitlist for Batch 2 – and note that Batch 1 is expected to ship in Fall 2015. What differentiates this "smart" card is that Swyp will "learn" which card you'd like to use based on your past purchasing habits. I imagine this will be helpful since scrolling through a tiny digital screen might take too long when all you want to do is buy your coffee.

Wally Case Gets 5 Stars in the AppleWorld.Today Hands-On Review June 09 2015, 0 Comments



We couldn't wait until Feature Friday to highlight this glowing review for Wally: Along with 5-out-of-5 stars, Steve Sande over at AppleWorld.Today had nothing but great things to say about our latest and greatest Wally Case –
"As a person who has been accused many times of having a thick wallet, I know I can't fit everything into the Wally. But for situations where I don't want to carry a wallet and just need ID, a credit card, and some cash, it's perfect. It's really the perfect companion for Apple Pay where you don't really need all that many cards with you. I know I will continue to use the case as my primary iPhone 6 Plus case for as long as I have the phone." – Steve Sande, AppleWorld.Today
This is actually the most popular way people are telling us they use Wally Case: not as a wallet replacement, but as an easy way to simplify what they need to grab and go for that quick trip to the store, a fun night out, or on a trip where you only need the essentials. The less we need to carry, the lighter the load – and even better if no one can tell that your iPhone is also your wallet. With the announcement of Apple Passbook becoming Apple Wallet, we suspect more and more of you will be able to make the lighter leap from your thick wallets to simply a Wally Case. 

Even Merry, one of his most excellent Apple-lovin' cats, gave Wally his paw-print of approval... Which is an honor in itself, because clearly he's one tough kitty who's not easy to please:



Those of you in-the-know remember Steve Sande from TUAW, or The Unofficial Apple Weblog – and you know this guy is a rockstar in the Apple world. So be sure to check out Steve and his team at their new all-things-Apple hub, AppleWorld.Today for the most up-to-date and insightful Apple news. Oh yeah, and Caturday posts!



Meet the Men Behind DU Father’s Day This Year June 05 2015, 1 Comment

To help visualize the DU Father's Day wallet-sale this year, I searched my scanned family-album archives and found this gem: my dad John and his father Asa in 1972, sharing their catch after a day on Lake Murray – which must've been a good one to justify documenting on two different cameras! 


This is the same brick patio where, many years later, I'd enjoy one of my favorite family feasts: fresh fried fish, hushpuppies and peach ice cream (made all day in the hand-crank ice cream churn, with peaches from Grandaddy's garden).

My Dad is a big Wally fan, and in fact his tinkering with the Bifold ultimately resulted in the Wally Duo. And you know what, I bet Grandaddy would appreciate the Wally; he was always surprising us and playing tricks on us kids, and I imagine the playful surprise of the pull-tab would make him smile and give me a "good job, Sugardiddle!"  

And so it follows, we're having a sale on all our Wally wallets because dads love wallets, and we're grateful for dads! And while we don't need an invented holiday to tell 'em we love 'em, Father's Day is a good enough excuse to do so.







What Wally Do You Want Next? May 29 2015, 3 Comments

We unabashedly love our Wallys. He's made it easy to ditch our thick wallets – and even purses (hooray for dresses with pockets!). Whether you use a Bifold, Case or Stick-On Skin, it's the patent-pending design with pull-tab that keeps Wally thin and gives you easy access to your cards. It's an old school pop-up book mechanism put to a modern use – functional fun for the kid inside us all. And it means the world to us when others find Wally as useful as we do:

Business Insider named Wally Bifold in their roundup of Dapper Wallets to Polish Off Your Outfit
iGeeksBlog featured Wally Case as one of the Best iPhone 6/6 Plus Wallet Cases
Will Oremus at Slate said his Wally Bifold "just might be the perfect men’s wallet for the digital age... the slimmest, most practical wallet you'll find." High five, Will!

Now honestly, we didn't set out to be a wallet company – we set out to solve problems. And we're ever so grateful for the high praise! And with a range of Wallys that goes from
 smartphone stick-ons to coin-carrying slim billfolds, we still can't help but wonder....



If Wally had a new sibling, what would that be? Another Wally offering that helps you better carry the daily essentials (and only the essentials) for the day's adventures... Perhaps something bigger, like a backpack. Or heck, a reimagination of the fanny pack since Jared Leto has confirmed that yesfanny packs are back. We're always coming up with ideas, but we want to hear if you think there's something we just absolutely have to make next – maybe it's simply a Sleeve in your favorite color, or maybe it's not even Wally related at all!

Comment below with your suggestions, or on our Facebook or Twitter. We've already put fanny pack out there, clearly we're not afraid, so LET US HAVE IT! We want to hear your product requests... GO! 


Feature Friday | Bifolds are for Fathers! May 22 2015, 0 Comments



This week in our inbox we were thrilled to see Wally Bifold featured in the Brit + Co Father's Day Gift Guide alongside cute cards, DIY kits and more. So many awesome gift ideas!

Wally Bifold was also recently named among Business Insider's Top "Dapper Wallet" picks. And not just that – Wally Bifold made the list on TrendHunter and GetDatGadget, too! So whether he'd rock the classic wallet or one for his iPhone or other smartphone, there's a Wally for every Dad out there, including yours.




Tell Dwell: What's your favorite way to celebrate the outdoors? May 19 2015, 0 Comments

Spring has given way to Summer here in Charleston, and we've already been enjoying some quality porch-sitting here on our studio's tiny 3rd-floor patio. After a particularly crazy day a couple of weeks ago, we relaxed over a cold one and a quiet moment with the latest issue of Dwell at the time – 



We really soaked up the 'How to Make It in America' article (cue Charles Bradley sweating it out live on KEXP), which featured these adorable Geo Stands by Rachel and Andrew at Yield Design Co. The Retail Therapy segment shared picks from Erin and Kerry of the amazing Charleston shop The Commons. And boy was it was exciting to see the beautiful spread showcasing thetranquil NC home of our friends The Clarks – that porch!

Well, the new issue of Dwell is out today – and we're part of the #DwellOutdoor party celebrating the things we love most about the outdoors. It's a bit of a #latergram, but we submitted our favorite things from that fresh-air session: Barefeet and the Bertoia Chair that Lindsay found at a county surplus sale (2 for $10 if you can believe it)! To be totally honest, our favorite way to celebrate the outdoors is with a view of the ocean...
