Most wine storage systems overlook one basic fact: it's way easier to find the bottle you want when you can see the label. The Wine Library overcomes this by making sure each and every one is visible, whether it's reclining gently or laying nearly on its side. The modular system is made entirely of laser-cut iron corten, and can be mixed-and-matched between 8, 16, 18, or 24 bottle units. It's available in a variety of finishes, and finished with an optional rolling ladder, rails, and backlights.
Inspired by The Polo Bar on the corner of 5th Ave and 55th St., the Ralph Lauren Polo Bar Mixologist Box brings select pieces from the restaurant to your home. Inside the saddle leather carrying case you'll find a hand-cut crystal decanter featuring sandblasted polo players, a quartet of matching double old-fashioned glasses, a silver-plated brass jigger, stirrers, a bottle opener, a set of coasters, and a nut bowl. Finished with a Wexford plaid wool lining taken straight from the restaurant and accompanied by a leather book of drink recipes.
Created to bring cocktails back to their original pre-prohibition era taste, True Syrup is replacing those gross chemicals with wholesome ingredients. Each batch is made from the real stuff, so instead of reading high fructose corn syrup, chemically-sourced quinine, and red 40 dye on the label, you see cane sugar and cinchona bark. Available in Tonic and Grenadine, mix them with any booze for authentic Shirley temples and gin and tonics or you can even use them to spice up your hot cider or wine.
Enjoying cold, draft beer from a great brewery at home is easier than ever thanks to the Hopsy Hometap Beer Dispenser. Developed by Krups — the same company that makes the Nespresso coffee machine — the Hopsy is easy to use and load and fits snugly on your kitchen countertop. Hopsy delivers two liters of beer in each HomeTap bottle, which are available online and shipped directly to you. Once tapped, the beer stays fresh for a couple weeks and can be swapped out for a new choice before or after they are empty. Order as a standalone, part of a Hopsy bundle, or join the monthly subscription club.
Brewing and bottling your own batch of beer at home is quite an accomplishment, but it's also a ton of work. With the Catalyst Beer Fermentation System, you can do all the same steps for a brew without having to siphon, transfer, or use a bunch of extra tools or ugly buckets on brew day. And with no transfers, the chances of your beer being contaminated go down dramatically. The tank is made from high-quality, food-safe polymer that is easy to pop into the dishwasher after you're done bottling. It's a homebrewing set that looks great, makes the process easier, and gives you a better chance at nailing a batch you can be proud of.
