Corcickle Wine Chiller Cool Corcickle for Chilling Wine

[07/11/11] 

The Corkcickle is a cross between a cork and an icicle, offering an ingenious solution for cooling wine. We like it a lot. There are few things more disappointing than a nice bottle of white wine turned luke warm, plus you can enjoy impromptu sessions of light saber fighting Arctic style or wine-flavoured Calippos.

Priced at US$22.95, the giant, reusable icicle is made specifically for chilling wine and not only looks striking but also does the job. Summer might have drawn to a close but it's still hot enough and it would be particularly useful on junk rooftops: saving you that embarrassing fall down the ladder to fetch another chilled glass of wine. Though frankly when you can’t negotiate the stairs you should probably call it a day any way.

According to the gadget’s producers, ice buckets make your wine too cold whereas the Corcickle chills your bottle just right. You simply give the Corcickle a wash and it’s ready for re-use – even with select red wines. Of course if you’re sitting down to supper with a Robert Parker wannabee they’re not going to be impressed by your Corcickle (be careful to pronounce that right) but that's probably part of the fun.
