Wine or Liquor Accessories

Wine Cork Stoppers and Pourer

I love these new Wine Cork stoppers designed by Aurélien Barbry. The Wine Pourer (right) is pretty clever too, as its top ensures a proper seal. With more and more wineries choosing screw tops over cork stoppers, these will at least keep some of that traditional feel alive.

Cylinda-Line Cocktail Shaker

Apart of Stelton’s Cylinda-Line, this cocktail shaker is a sight for sore eyes, and I’m not talking about the promise of future cocktails. Clean lines, no frills, it’s amazing that something so very simple and sleek is sooo incredibly expensive. Unfortunately, as is often the case, sometimes less is very definitely more.

Designer: Arne Jacobsen
8.6 in x 3.3 dia.

Looking Glass Decanter

While this upside down decanter is quite expensive, it would be terribly fun to use. Inspired by the stories of “Alice in Wonderland”, it magnifies and distorts the things seen through it. Chances are that it would be partly used as a decanter and partly a display object, because why in the world would anyone hide something like this in the cabinet?

Hand made in borosilicate glass.
Available as a numbered sequential edition.

Decanting Mirror

If this had title no description, would you know what it was? I would guess an art-ish object of some sort. It’s almost always a delight when an object has beauty apart from its function.

“this wave shaped polished piece of steel is used to pour wine over for aeration in to a decanter. the beautiful wine waterfall enhances the aromas.”

Artist/designer: l’atelier du vin
Materials: stainless steel.

A clever interpretation of the corkscrew…
