There's something special about a great glass of wine with dinner, or to help wind down after a long day. Of course, most of those occasions don't call for emptying the entire bottle, and then storage and preservation become an issue. Plum Wine Appliance solves that issue, and might be able to serve a fresh glass better than you can as well. One of the most sophisticated home appliances on the market, Plum works with any standard wine bottle. Just load bottles in and Plum uses integrated cameras to identify the wine and chill each bottle to the exact varietal temperature. It also uses a motorized double cored needle to pressurize each bottle with argon gas, keeping your wine preserved for up to 90 days. With Plum, the days of pouring out oxidized wine or drinking at less than ideal temperatures are over, and the problems are solved in the form of a great looking addition to any kitchen or home bar.

A great cocktail mixer can take the effort out of making a great drink, but most of them are packed with calories and artificial ingredients. Ficks Vitamin & Electrolyte Infused Cocktail Mix are a line of premium cocktail mixers launched this year in San Francisco. They use all natural ingredients like fresh pressed ginger juice in their Moscow Mule and organic agave nectar in their Margarita. With just 35 calories and 10g of sugar per 3oz serving, Ficks has almost made drinking healthy.
Scott Campbell is primarily known for his Williamsburg tattoo shop, Saved Tattoos, and its sister wine brand, Saved Wines. So it's no surprise that the Saved Wines x Shinola Corkscrew features some "ink" of its own. Its solid brass handle is engraved with various patterns and sigils that "represent inspired ideas and the focus and determination to act upon them". We don't know about all that, but we do know it's a classy upgrade from standard bartender corkscrew or Rabbit.
While you're likely familiar with how well meat responds to the smoking process, you might not be as well versed in the world of infusing cocktails with a savory smoke flavor. This Crafthouse Cocktail Smoke Box will give you that ability, taking your mixology skills to the next level.

Infusing liquor with fruits, spices, and other flavors is nothing new — pro bartenders have known for years that a well-done infusion can liven up even the simplest recipe. Yet it's still not that common outside the bar/restaurant. The Alkemista Alcohol Infusion Vessel aims to change that. It uses a four-piece design to make it easy to create delicious infusions. Just place your ingredients in the stainless steel filter, screw the 950 ml borosilicate glass bottle onto the leak-proof bottom lid, pour in your liquor, insert the stopper, and wait while the flavors mingle together, creating a wholly-new liquid you can use to craft pro-quality cocktails at home.
