A high-tech whisky glass. Note the absence of the “e” in whisky, signifier of seriousness. Something about fluid dynamics and aeration and nosing. It’s a double walled vessel, formed with a glass blowing technique into two separate molds for a tumbler that breathes properly, providing a whisky drinking experience heretofore unattainable. A funded Kickstarter.
Christmas. No better way to count off the days than by drinking whisky every day until it’s over. With this advent calendar you don’t get a stale foil-wrapped chocolate, you get a new premium whisky to try each day. If whisky isn’t on your wish list, they’ve got other booze calendar options.
We think that any device that opens beers in one, quick little pop should be called a piece of “functional art” but the creators of the Discommon Goods Bottle Opener were serious. California-made and machined from a chunk of aerospace aluminum, this bottle opener looks as good as it works.
The PK in PK Grills stands for Portable Kitchen, and their all-aluminum American-made grill/smoker is exactly that. Aluminum construction & 4-way venting means precision temp control plus rustproof durability. The grill also detaches from the cradle for easy portability to and from the next tailgate BBQ.
There are several smart meat thermometers out there but the Meater is the first one that’s totally wireless. It monitors your meat’s internal temp as well as the ambient temp to ensure precise cooking in the oven, on the grill or in the smoker. When your meat is ready, the Meater alerts you via bluetooth. Works with Android & iOS devices.
It turns out that refined Italian design and beer go pretty good together. Proof: this collection of beer glasses from Sempli & designer Daniele Semerano. Each of the four glasses was specifically designed for IPA, Pilsner, Pint or 12-ounce bottles.
For some, fall is sweater season. For the more evolved among us, cool autumn weather makes this the time for serious sandwiches. Chicken, apples, & brie make great combo in a salad but imagine it all melted between two slabs of your favorite bread. Add a dark beer and uh, see you after your nap.
Italian cycling brand Campagnolo knows a thing or two about mechanical advantage. Created by the company’s founder in 1966, the oversized Big Corkscrew applies decades of Italian engineering & design wizardry to the popping of bottles.
Sriracha makes everything taste better. Duh. Now, they’re putting it on popcorn, too. Which is much easier than doing so yourself.
Oregon-based Union Wine Co. puts their wine in a can. Makes sense, right? No corkscrew or wine glass needed. Choose their Oregon-grown rosé, pinot noir or pinot gris. Sold in 4-packs.
