This Flask Comes With A Cigar Storage Compartment

Very few things complement a cigar better than a good single malt scotch. But it’s hard to be able to enjoy both while remaining mobile. The Cigar Flask pictured above seems like just the thing for the gentleman who wants to have an “upscale moment” at the park. Or walking down the street with the buddies. Or anywhere outdoors, and not sitting down at a cigar lounge. The flask features a compartment sized .75″ by 1.5″, and fits 2 46-ring cigars. On the other side, you’ll fit 4 oz. of liquor. It’s just the kind of thing you buy a guy you like, but aren’t willing to spend more than $40 on. This happens to be $29, with engraving and gift box included.

Drinkmaster Hoodie Lets You Drink In Style In the Great Outdoors

Drinkmaster Hoodie

If you’ve ever tried to drink outdoors on a cold night, then you might’ve been able to make the unpleasant realization that it’s not as simple or easy as it looks. It’s too cold to grip the bottle using your bare hands, but it slips and slides when you try to hold it using the sleeve of your jacket. Then there’s the matter of trying to pop the bottle open with shaking and shivering hands. So do yourself a favor and swap out your regular jacket for the Drinkmaster Hoodie.

It’s the only hoodie in the market that’s made especially for a drinker’s enjoyment. The Drinkmaster is fashioned from quality cotton and polyblend. It has a built-in Neoprine-lined beer koozie pocket, a zipper with a bottle opener wedged somewhere in between, a flask pocket on the inside of the jacket, and built-in drinking gloves on the sleeve with a non-slip grip. It even has a snappable ID pocket so you can hand your ID over to buy your booze in a snap.

BROpener Turns Anything Into A Bottle Opener

Beer. It’s the beverage of kings… and that of drunken frat boys. We drink the stuff for more than just its taste; it’s a bonding thing. Each bottle needs to be opened and how you do it says a lot about you. In order of least to most manly ways of accomplishing this task, you have: with a handheld bottle opener, twisting the cap off with your hand, using the edge of a counter, using your teeth. (please don’t use your teeth) The edge of counter trick is pretty popular, but with it comes damaged counter edges. Some people care, and if that’s you, there’s the BROpener. It’s a simple piece of aluminum that you stick to the side of a counter with a super strong adhesive (provided), and which contains a strong magnet. Use the protruding metal edge to pop the cap, and instead of it falling on the floor, it sticks to the BROpener for easy disposal. It’s simple, it’s cheap ($14 as a pledge on Kickstarter) and available in March if funding is successful.

Peppermint Shot Glasses Are Perfect For Christmas

Sometimes it’s sort of important that we describe a product, because hey, you don’t necessarily know what it does. Other times, a headline and picture is enough. That’s what we have here: peppermint shot glasses. They took the candy cane while it was still hot, and made it into a shot glass that you can eat after you’ve downed a couple of shots from it. Christmas fun!

It’s $11 for a set of 3.

This Is A Brandy Pipe

A drinking post. Again. It’s the Holidays, innit? That’s enough of an excuse to justify talking about alkeehol, at least it is to me. So what you have here is a Brandy Pipe. Fancy, right?

To help you fully experience and appreciate the flavours of your favourite liqueur, the Brandy Pipe offers a long sipping stem that is gently warmed by your hand as you hold this delicate glass to help release hidden aromas and flavours. Presented in a foam lined gift box, this unique liqueur glass makes an ideal gift for anyone that appreciates a stronger drink. Based on the original sipper glasses from the 17th century, the Brandy Pipe follows traditional glass making techniques to help drinkers get the most from their drink and experience new flavours that were previously hidden.

I like it. I like it because I’ve started to suspect the part of my brain that deals with detecting flavours is slowly dying. It’s hard to know for sure, but anything that “brings flavours out” is A-ok by me. And at £12 (~$20), it makes a pretty easy gift.

The Shot Flask Features Shot Glass In Body

Second post on drinking today. No, this has nothing to do with our recently self-imposed dry period. Nope. Not one thing…

But while we’re on the topic, might as well tell you about the Shot Flask. It’s pretty obvious what it is, and it’s genius. It’s a simple flask that contains a collapsible shot glass. No longer do you have to swig your liquor straight from the flask like an alcoholic; you can pretend to be upscale and just shoot it like a regular bar patron. Except you’re in a movie theatre and fooling no one, but hey, we don’t judge.

The Shot Flask holds 8 oz, and costs $25.

Das Horn: For When You Just Have To Drink Like A Viking

Men don’t drink beer from mugs, men drink beer from a hollowed-out animal tusk held in their right hand, while nonchalantly fighting a raging boar with the left. It’s just how it’s done, or at the very least it’s how it would be done in an Old Spice commercial. Except that, well… hollowing out an animal tusk might have been just fine in the time of Leif Eriksson but it’s not such an accepted practice nowadays. Enter the Das Horn, a BPS-free ABS plastic cup with a stainless steel rim. A metal stand allows you to set it down on a table, or you can hang it around your neck for some hands-free drinking. We think it looks pretty slick.

The Das Horn contains 24 oz. of liquid, and is dishwasher safe. Currently a project on Kickstarter, a $35 pledge will get you yours.

Beer/Shot Glass Encourages Stomach Party

By David Ponce

It’s well known that mixing your liquors is the best way to have a happening shindig in the confines of your stomach. It’s the kind of shindig that might have its partygoers leave suddenly… but you knew what we meant, so we’re not sure why that explanation was necessary. Anyway, the Beer/Shot glass is both smart and stupid at the same time. In one direction it holds 16 ounces of malted beverage. Turned the other way, it holds 2 ounces of whatever distillate you have on hand. It’s smart because, hey… good design. But, well, you can see where this is going. Still, if you insist on flogging your stomach, you can get yours for $19 for a set of two.

Roller Rock Glass Is The Boss Way Of Drinking Whisky

By David Ponce

There’s a right and a wrong way to drink certain drinks, like fine scotch or whisky. At the very least that’s what you’ll hear in some circles. You shouldn’t mix them with Coke, for one; if you’re paying top dollar for this stuff you want to taste the liquor. And you shouldn’t cool them down with tiny ice cubes, because these melt very quickly and they dilute your expensive distillate. The best shape for an ice cube is a perfect sphere, because it exposes the least amount of surface to the liquid. That’s why we think the above Roller Rock Glass makes drinking right much easier. It comes with a mold to make the ball-shaped ice in the first place, but most importantly features a conical protrusion at the bottom so that you may swirl your ice around, cooling and aerating your drink at the same time. Take these out along with the good bottle of Glenfidditch when your boss is visiting, and you’ll be on your way to that promotion in no time. It’s $20.
