A wooden library card catalog on which sits a 1949 Royal Quiet De Luxe Typewriter next to a crystal old fashioned glass and a fifth of Glenmorangie in a scotch bottle. To one side is a blue vase with small pink roses.

I’ve seen many references comparing the use of typewriters in an overstimulating technology space to the slow food movement. Since one regularly pairs wine with their meals, it only seems right to extend the typewriter analogy to liquor as well. Today, I’m pairing this smooth 10 year single malt Glenmorangie Scotch with the 1949 Royal Quiet De Luxe.

Surely Hemingway would approve?

Type-o-sphere, what are you pairing with your typewriter today?

    @chrisaldrich Excellent idea! I have a feeling my 1939 Underwood Ace would pair well with a peaty Jura 10-Year Single Malt. Slainte! #typewriters

    For 1954 Empire Aristocrat, a clone of a Hermes Baby, a small glass of vintage port would go down well. Earlier in the day, a cup of tea, probably Assam.
    My 1961 Imperial 66 would probably pair well with a pint of Guinness.
    My 1979 East German Erika 42 deserves a robust schnapps.
