Just stick to what you know" is what photographer Martina Martian was advised when she was a successful illustrator and wanted to try something different. Travelling the world for a year, she picked up a camera and now shoots for some of the biggest brands and magazines worldwide.

Each page of the Smokehead Rulebook is filled with "play-it-safe" advice given to our inspiring, immensely talented partners at the beginning of their careers, but they chose to listen to their gut instinct and do their own thing, their way - just like Smokehead.
Smokehead has ripped up the rule book since day one. So, take our handmade Smokehead rulebook and tear out a page of the best-ignored advice you've read. Crumple it up and set it alight on an accompanying coaster. Next, turn your glass over the slow-burning paper. Once the smoking has stopped, add ice and Smokehead and maybe a mixer of your choice, it’s up to you, and raise your glass to those who blaze their own trail.

This right here is history in the making. We’ve hitched a ride with Tyler Lunceford as he builds us ‘The Smoker’ – a one of a kind, customised Ducati inspired by vintage racing motorcycles.
Tyler was born and raised in the States. Christened as ‘The Ducati whisperer of the tri-state area’ by press in New York, he’s built bikes for obsessive bikers, rock stars and now us. Soon the whisky world will know what happens when a single malt hits the open road in pursuit of unrestricted flavour.
Keep an eye on our Refinery to follow Tyler’s journey creating the most out there bike he’s ever built.
