A Wine Chiller That Could Put Your Eye Out

The temperature at which you store and enjoy wine can be just as important as its vintage and heritage. So skip the hassle of a fridge, ice bucket, and electric chiller by just stabbing your bottle in the heart with this faux, freezable icicle.

Made from non-toxic gels, a BPA-free plastic sheath and poorly constructed puns, the frozen Corkcicle is inserted into a wine bottle once the first glass has been poured, rapidly chilling it from within. So I guess you'll just have to draw straws to see what dinner guest gets that first warm glass. The $23 Corkcicle will keep white wines at their optimal temperature for about forty-five minutes, and can cool a red in just ten. And even though it's not made from ice, it still has the potential to put your eye out, whether or not a Red Ryder BB gun is involved. [Corkcicle via OhGizmo! via Reddit]
