VinOice Wine Chiller Also Has Drip Free Spout

Almost one year ago we featured the Corkicle, a cooled, icicle shaped rod that was meant to be inserted into a wine bottle to keep it at ideal drinking temperature. The idea was that you’d normally cool a bottle of white anyway, then open it, pour some out to drink and insert the Corkicle into the half empty bottle to maintain the right temp longer. The VinOice pictured above does the exact same thing, except it one-ups the Corkicle in that it also features a drip free spout. That… is pretty much it.

It’s $30.

The Lockey Bottle Safe

Having kids is all fun and games, until they reach their teens and decide to start drinking. You can try to stop them, but you’ll likely be as successful at that as you’ll be trying to take a cat for a walk. At most you can do something to make sure they don’t get into your collection of wines and spirits, with the above Lockey. It’s pretty obvious what it does, isn’t it? Just plug that bottle up, and twist the top to lock it in place. That wine is going nowhere until you dial the combination in.

Well.. in theory. I remember this NYE party at a club once where a bottle of Champagne was passed around and happily ingested by everyone even after the neck had been broken off to get to the bubbly inside. So uh… at least you’ll know you tried.

It’s $20 a lock.

You’re Lazy: Wine Glass Holder Necklace

By David Ponce

Oh, you think you’re clever because now you’re at a party and you have both your hands free while carrying your wine glass around? You call it multitasking, do you? Well, here’s a wake up call, buddy: you’re just lazy. Sure, the 36inch strap lets you hang that glass just about anywhere on your chest and sure it’s convenient and…. You know what guys? We got nothing. There’s nothing we can say about the actual product above that isn’t just opinionated commentary. So there you have it. It’s a strap for carrying your wine glass around your neck. Some people think it’s genius, we… we’re not so sure. It’s $25 for a set of two.

The Corkicle Is A Potentially Stupid Wine Chiller

By David Ponce

We want to like the Corkicle, really we do… it’s just that we’re not sure whether it actually would work properly. The idea is that you put the thing in the freezer and once you get some wine you need to chill, you insert it in the bottle and let it do its thing. Presumably it’s plastic filled with some type of material that has a high specific heat. And it looks kind of nice in the pictures, so this could be a good addition to your dinner table; the wine chilling while looking nifty. The problem of course is that the Corkicle has volume. And it will displace some wine. How much is the issue… but really, almost any volume will cause the wine to spill over. Perhaps you’re meant to empty the bottle a little before inserting the Corkicle? We don’t really know and aren’t willing to spend $23 to find out.

Anyone?
