Pinocchio Barrique Bottle

The Pinocchio Barrique Bottle letīs you replicate the effects of aging wine in barrels at home! Experience the thrill of being a producer of your own favorite drink. Itīs in fact an oak bottle, that behaves like a large barrel, but now you can keep it at home because of its regular size. Itīs made from European oak, with a machined alluminum top and bottom, itīs this oak that gives your drink itīs unique blend and taste, the fact that itīs porous lets the alcohol breathe and changes its organoleptic structure, making it smoother and with a more subtle taste. Itīs very easy to use, just fill it with some warm water for at least 12 hrs (to inflate every pore and achieve the transpiration impermeability status) and then fill it with the alcoholic beverage you want to design yourself, store it in a cellar, or just away from light, and wait, leaving it to mature for three to 15 days, or longer, then enjoy the unique taste you made yourself. Its makers claim 10 days in the Pinnochio Barrique Bottle will offer the benefits of six months in an oak barrel. The concept is similar to Whiskey Elements, a wooden stick that claims it can age whisky by up to three years in just 24 hours. watch the video

You can pick one up for a special price of $55.99 (until 4Th July) at Touch of Modern
