Introducing Alchema, a $499 countertop fermentation device that allows you to turn your leftover fruit into alcoholic beverages like mead, cider and wine. Basically, it’s a more sophisticated and expensive alternative to putting fruit and crumbled bread in a plastic bag and letting it ferment behind the toilet. [click to continue…]

Whiskey for breakfast? Go ahead, we won’t judge. However, you should know that Jack Daniel’s and World of Coffee are offering a 100% arabica bean coffee (medium roast) that’s infused with Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey. The fact that it’s non-alcoholic might be a dealbreaker though. [click to continue…]

A new Harry Potter-inspired cafe called Platform 1094 has opened in Singapore and it serves a variety of themed food and drink amidst a bevy of fun props like wands and witch hats. But the literal Goblet of Fire is the star of the show. [click to continue…]

jack-in-a-box

Jack in a (metal) box. This irritates me just looking at it. The way I see it, there are three ways to handle it and your choice says a lot about you. Would you view this as:

A. A challenge?
B. An amusing bit of decor for the office?
C. A minor irritation that could be remedied by smashing the bottle and filtering the glass?

Mondo has introduced their “Tee-Kis” Tiki mug collection which kicked off with a Gremlins-inspired line in partnership with Alamo Drafthouse theaters.

Unfortunately, those mugs sold out online in a hot second as Mondo stuff tends to do (some may be still available at Alamo Drafthouse locations during their Gremlins screenings), but the really interesting thing is the Tiki mugs they will be releasing in the future.

Below you’ll find designs for their upcoming Aliens and The Iron Giant-themed Tiki mugs. [click to continue…]

Here’s another take on the concept of a whisky advent calendar. It’s not nearly as fun as this one, but you can make things more interesting by getting this bottle on the 23rd and starting the countdown at midnight. Using that system, each day becomes and hour. Yeah, we don’t recommend it. [click to continue…]

Last week, we featured Outlander wine. This week, we discovered that official Game Of Thrones wine on the way. You may be familiar with Game of Thrones beer by Brewery Ommegang, but wine is the official beverage of GoT, so it’s only fitting they get their own special vintages.

Vintage Wine Estates will release three different Game of Thrones wines—a red blend and a Chardonnay have a suggested retail of $19.99, while the Cabernet Sauvignon will retail around $39.99. They should be available starting in March 2017.

I wish the names of the wine were in the spirit of vintners in the Seven Kingdoms, but the bottles are pretty and it’s wine. Hard to go wrong.

Yep, you read that right. An Outlander wine collection has been created with four vintages; the NV Claire Randall Vin Blanc, 2015 Frank Randall Vin de Pays d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015 Claire Fraser Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, and the 2014 Jamie Fraser Paso Robles Red Blend.

The collection from Lot 18 was limited to only 2500 bottles per character and everything has sold out but the 2015 Frank Randall Vin de Pays d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon at the time of writing. Still, the details are worth checking out if you’re a fan. Take a look at all of the awesome labels below. [click to continue…]

First, there was Unicorn Tears gin, and now you can get drunk on the spicy tears of a Phoenix.

Phoenix Tears Spiced Rum is Caribbean rum with brown sugar, dried fruit, cinnamon, and ginger notes for both sweet and spicy flavors. Plus, a gold shimmer for a little extra magic.

Of course, we can’t support any product that involves making mythical creatures cry—but it does sound delicious. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

If a book and a glass of wine sounds like the perfect evening for you, then you’ll be pleased to know that Italian winery Matteo Correggia and design agency Reverse Innovation have found a way to bring these things closer together.

Combining the Italian words for “book” and “bottle”, their new “Librottiglia” range of wines include short stories built into the label of each bottle. Flavors include red Anthos, ruby red Nebbiolo Roero and white Roero Arneis accompanied by stories such as Patrizia Laquidara’s “A Frog in the Belly”, Regina Marques Nadaes’s “I love you. Forget me” and Danilo Zanelli’s “Murder”.

Sadly, the bottles are only available in Italian at the moment, and there’s no word on whether or not this will eventually change. It should though—this is a great idea. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
