CORKCICLE LABS: PERFECTLY CHILLED WINE EVERY TIME
Maintains chilled whites. Cools down reds.
Keeping your wines at just the right drinking temperatures – it’s a great dilemma. Too cold and it could mask the vintner’s uniquely crafted complexities. Too warm and the flavors may take a back seat to the alcohol. Corkcicle is a product that can solve both problems.
It keeps your chilled whites at perfect drinking temperatures. It keeps your lighter chilled reds at perfect drinking temperatures. And it even brings those heavier room temperature reds down to more suitable drinking temperatures.
The coolest wide-spectrum offering from Corkcicle, Corkcicle Color maintains your wines at the perfect temperatures from the inside out by keeping chilled whites chilled and cooling down reds. It’s simply the most colorful way to enjoy perfectly chilled wine, every time. Available in various pop-influenced colors.
How To Use
Step 1: After freezing your Corkcicle... for whites, pour the first chilled glass. For reds, pour out a "taste" to make room for Corkcicle.
Step 2: Insert into your bottle to cool room temperature reds in 15 min or keep whites perfectly chilled for an hour.
Step 3: To refill glasses simply pull Corkcicle out 75% from the bottle. Tilt the bottle over the glass to fill.
Since Corkcicle was launched, there have been quite a few stories on how the idea was born. And while the founder wishes he’d been inspired while sipping warmish wine in an icicle-rimmed Aspen chalet, that’s not the case. The truth is that Ben Hewitt, Corkcicle’s inventor and the company founder, simply loves wine and hated that there wasn’t a better solution to bothersome wine buckets.
In 2011, Ben started tinkering in his garage, creating prototype after prototype. Aided with the marketing expertise of his friend and business partner, Stephen Bruner, the idea quickly became a reality. More to the point, Stephen brought a high design approach to the product with the name and its icicle form to create the team’s beloved Corkcicle.
As the manufacturing process got underway, it became clear that they needed a rainmaker to help deliver the product and get it effectively introduced to the retail world. A close friend, Eric Miller, VP of Sales at a Fortune 100 medical device company, came on board and has been making it rain Corkcicles ever since.
Less than a full year into the product being on the market, Corkcicle won the 2012 Stevie Award for Best New US Company.
