Drinking Gadgets

We seem to be finding more and more gadgets related to beer and drinking. As drinking is an activity everybody at CG seems to enjoy we thought it was only sensible to have a drinking gadgets section.


Mature Your Own Gin Kit appeals to the rebel in you

by Edwin

There is nothing wrong in having a slight tipple at the end of a particularly stressful week at the office, or even at home, as it might help to calm down your soul and soothe those jangled nerves of yours. However, purchasing alcoholic drinks does add up over time where your bank account is concerned, so why not save some money with the £99.99 Mature Your Own Gin Kit? After all, at least you know what goes into your drink for sure.

The Mature Your Own Gin Kit comes with just about everything one requires to make your own cask-aged gin. It will be accompanied by a pair of 50cl bottles of gin and a 1L freshly toasted oak barrel, making it ready to drink straight out the barrel. Those who give it a go would realize that this is far from being a complicated process, where all that you need to do is to pour said gin into the barrel using the slinky stainless steel funnel provided, leave it alone for a few days or even weeks, and let time do its dance before you get high on your own effort. The barrel is good for about three uses, so do take note of that.

Star Wars Steins get the mood right

by Edwin

sw-steinWe all know that even if you are not a huge Star Wars fan, this does not mean that you are not looking forward to the brand new Star Wars VII release at the end of this year. It is sure as heck going to be a hit at the box office, although just how much of a hit will it be, remains to be seen. Having said that, you can be sure that the marketing machinery for the Star Wars franchise has not stopped nor slowed, and we have new $49.99 Star Wars Steins that are certainly an improvement over the previous beer steins like that of Darth Vader!

Depending on your taste in the affiliation of the Force, you can choose from Boba Fett, Darth Vader, or R2-D2, where these massive steins will be able to hold 22 oz. of your favorite beverage. Not only that, they also look great when displayed on a shelf as a collectible, so it does look as though it is a win-win situation for just about everyone – the giver or the receiver. In fact, they also measure 9″ in height and tip the scales at slightly more than 2 lbs. each, and these officially licensed Star Wars merchandise will feature a pewter thumb lift to boot.

Slip Cup for Beer Pong

Do you enjoy partying with all of your bros? How about drinking an unhealthy amount while playing games that encourage you to drink more? If you’ve heard of beer pong, then you likely know what you must be willing to deal with to play. Not only are you going to drink a fair deal of beer, but you must also be ok with the same ping pong ball landing on the floor, rolling under the counter, being touched by way too many people, and splashing into your drink.

The Pub-Nub offers a fun way to open bottles

by Edwin

pub-nubAfter a particularly long and difficult day at work, it would be nice to unwind at the local pub. In fact, knocking back some pints would work very well for some of us, although there are also folks out there who have a very low level of alcohol tolerance. Having said that, it is always advantageous to have some kind of bottle opener handy just in case, unless you are pretty adept with your teeth. The $23.09 Pub-Nub might be worth a purchase as a portable tool, where you get a fun way to open bottles in either Matte Black or Matte Silver colors.

Basically, the Pub-Nub happens to be a bottle opener attachment that will play nice with your handlebars, allowing you to drink while you are on the move on your bicycle or motorcycle. After all, there is only one more thing left for you to figure out – that is, how the heck are you going to carry around that bottle of booze (or even a few bottles) while you ride? This bike mounted bottle opener is crafted from aluminium and rubber, and it looks to be the perfect addition to any two-wheeled piece of transport. Definitely one of the more creative bottle openers that we have seen for sure.

by Edwin

icecapAh, there is nothing quite like having your glass of wine at the end of a long day at work, or even to celebrate an occassion. After all, research has shown that wine is definitely good for your health, if drunk in moderate amounts, that is. The thing is, you might want to have a little bit of extra help when it comes to drinking your wine the way it is meant to be drunk – and the $35 Ice Cap would fill in this role nicely.

Good wine, as we all know, needs to be served chilled, not to mention having it breathe for a bit. The Ice Cap will get the job done, but the marvelous thing about this is, you need not wait too long for that to happen, since the process can be expedited. The Ice Cap comes in the form of a kind of refrigerated funnel, where pouring your wine into the glass will see it cool down and aerate properly. Just place the Ice Cap in the freezer for a few hours, before putting it on top of your glass and pour your room-temperature wine. It will take a matter of seconds to drop the beverage’s temperature by up to 10 °C, now how about that?
