Corkcicle: For Perfect Wine

The Corkcicle: For Perfect Wine

Description: It's time to lose the ice bucket. There is an easier way to maintain perfectly chilled wine while you enjoy the entire bottle: Corkcicle. The Corkcicle is a wine chilling cork that extends down into your wine bottle. Simply insert Corkcicle into a wine bottle in place of the cork while you enjoy your wine and Corkcicle will ensure it stays at a consistent chilled temperature. Ice buckets often made wines too cold, masking the flavors and complexities of the wine. Corkcicle doesn't allow temperatures to sink to low or rise too high, but maintains a chilled bottle in the optimal temperature range where maximum flavors can be experienced every time. The process works for whites and red wines -- maintaining temperatures for already chilled bottles of white wine, while also bringing warm reds down to a more suitable temperature and making sure their flavors don't take a backseat to the alcohol. Corkcicle is simple to use. Store Corkcicle in the freezer. When ready, uncork the wine from a chilled bottle, pour your first glass and insert Corkcicle. For up to an hour, relax and enjoy your wine at the perfect drinking temperature.
