Chill Out
A fast and frosty wine gadget.

corkcicle_mainimage_3_213x400_400There are times when you really need a glass of wine. If that bottle isn’t properly chilled, well, it can really harsh your impending buzz. Since we’re all about immediate wine gratification, we’re huge fans of a new way to chill bottles. Check out the Corkcicle.

This nifty synthetic icicle/cork is a no muss, no fuss way to keep your wines at just the right drinking temperature. The icicle is made of plastic filled with a reusable freeze gel, so you don't have to worry about it diluting your favorite vino. Simply place your Corkcicle in the freezer for at least two hours, and then insert it into any bottle of wine to maintain chilled white wine or to bring up red wines to their perfect temperature. The Corkcicle chills wine from the inside and can be used over and over.

The Corkcicle is $22.95 and available for purchase here. The only catch is that one glass of wine does have to be poured from the bottle before you can insert the Corkicle, but we figure that glass is to keep the serious cravings at bay until the bottle is ready.
