Sometimes simple ideas are the best ideas, and we're starting to get that feeling about the Bike Chain Bottle Opener ($12). Made with flexible, recycled bike chain as a handle and an anodized aluminum opener head, the idea is simple, but the execution and final product is simply genius — at least, that is, after six or seven Coronas.
Continuing the simple, stemless elegance of Riedel's O line, the Riedel O Sake Set ($40) features two stemless O series sake taster glasses designed to complement the flavors of sake that hold 13 ounces each, as well as a small decanter with a similar design that holds about a little more than 15 ounces. Now we just need to fortify our liquor stores with some more high-end sake and we'll be good to go. [via]
Riedel is known for their outstanding wine glasses, so we were pleased when we heard about this decanter. The Amadeo Lyra Decanter ($300) is an absolute beauty, part of the Amadeo collection celebrating the 250th anniversary of both Riedel and Mozart. It can decant up to 59 ounces of vino — enough to take care of even your thirstiest guests — allowing your favorite vintage to taste its best. [via]
