New Yorker and mixologist Tim Cooper has travelled the world mixing cocktails and bespoke drinks for some of the best bars and restaurants. Together with Tumi and Ketel One vodka, Cooper has created the ultimate mixology case.

Made of poplar wood, it is lined with Italian leather and contains everything you need to create the perfect cocktail, including shakers, martini glasses and mixing utensils.

‘It’s perfect harmony when two brands like this come together,’ says Cooper. ‘What sets the great apart from the good is passion when dealing with any product. Whether you’re in the spirit world, whether you’re in the high-end luggage world, you want the very best, you want to work with the best – anything less, once you’re at a certain level, just won’t do.’

Tumi’s ongoing series of Case Studies videos chronicles the stories of global travellers who use Tumi’s cases and bags as a major part of their jet-setting lifestyles.

Along the way they’ve also perfected the art of packing. Here are Tim Cooper’s top three tips:

1. Choose a functional bag as the foundation for an active lifestyle

2. If you’re carrying lots of small items, choose a bag with lots of compartments

3. For fragile items such as gifts and souvenirs pack extra bubble-wrap
