Top 10 quirky drinks gadgets

13th July, 2017 by Phoebe French

the drinks business takes a look at some of the most unusual drinks gadgets in the press, from whisky stones and port sippers to a robotic pint-puller and a flip flop bottle opener.

Wine, beer and spirits lovers are spoilt for choice when it comes to new booze gadgets, with a proliferation of new gizmos coming onto the market. Most recently, the Eto decanter piqued the interest of oenophiles and reached it’s Kickstarter funding target within 32 hours. Designed by Tom Cotton, Eto claims to extend the life of a bottle by up to 12 days after opening.

Coravin, the gadget that allows wine to be extracted from the bottle without extracting the cork, has bold ambitions. Speaking to the drinks business last month, CEO Fred Levy said: “Coravin is an aspirational product and my dream is for it to become the Nespresso of wine and to see one in every kitchen all over the world – I want people to retire their corkscrews”.

    Have to say people really come up with some really ingenious ideas sometimes. Loved all the quirky gadgets especially the slippers with the bottle opener and the pipe decanter/glasses. The Brew Barrel is great for someone who enjoys making their own beer and corkscrew glasses just look so cool. Really great stuff.
