New gadget aims to keep wine cold

25 July, 2012

The makers of a new gadget that looks like an icicle suspended in a bottle of wine claim it will “maintain the optimal drinking temperature while the bottle is consumed”.

The Corkcicle can be reused again and again as it is made from a freeze gel.

Distributor Root7 said: “The perfect temperature in wine can be the difference between a good glass of wine and a great one.

“To get the Corkcicle to its coldest point it is recommended to leave in the freezer for a minimum of two hours and it will then keep your wine at the perfect temperature for approximately hour hour.”

The Corkcicle costs £19.99.
