Is Black November The New Black Friday

Black Friday Deals

It is that time of the year, again, when you get to hear a lot about Black Friday and Black November. You see discount prices displayed on shop windows, online shops and websites, and even social media pages. To a point, you might be wondering what is the big deal about this time of the year? Why call it Black November or Black Friday?  Let us dive in and find out.

Black Friday

History shows that Black Friday originated in the United States. It is a term used for the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. The earliest evidence of the phrase Black Friday originated in Philadelphia, dating back to 1961. It was used by police to describe the heavy pedestrian and traffic jams that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving. This resulted when large numbers of suburban tourists came into the city to begin their holiday shopping.

It has been regarded as the beginning of the shopping season in the US. The notion is that Thanksgiving is the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, which gives retailers a longer shopping season. Retailers open very early, and even overnight hours, and offer promotional sales.

Although Black Friday is mostly known to come after Thanksgiving, Amazon started the culture of Black Fridays falling on Fridays other than the day after Thanksgiving i.e on the 4th of July. This has been adopted by other online retailers around the world.

Black November

Black November is an extension of Black Friday. Instead of the shopping holiday starting at the end of the month, you get to have promotional sales from the beginning of November! How cool is that🎊

These promotional sales include discounts, flash sales, two for the price of one, branded gifts, product giveaways, among others

In the spirit of this shopping season, let us explore some of the popular products we have for our Black Friday/November offer.


Glenfiddich 18 Years

Glenfiddich is among the most popular distillery in Speyside, a drink that commands luxury and taste. It is known for its luxury because it is a high-end single-malt Scotch whisky, and taste because it is beautifully balanced.

It is ridiculously enjoyable, meant for sipping and savouring rather than mixing.

Hennessy XO

Hennessy XO

If there is a drink worth splurging on, it is Hennessy XO. A powerful cognac, it is bold, attention-grabbing and does not share the delicacies of other XOs.  Despite its powerful statement on the palate, Hennessy XO has an unexpected finesse. It has a broad attack of flavourful fruit and spice rounded by chocolate tones fading into an equally spicy vanilla-tinged finish. This makes Hennessy XO a cognac worthy of contemplative savouring.

Hennessy recommends the XO cognac be drunk straight or with a dash of water or ice.
