About Corkcicle

We started with a question. How do you chill wine to the perfect drinking temp, without the mess of an ice bucket? To solve it, we tested, obsessed and perfected our way to our very first product: The ?original Corkcicle Air in-bottle wine chiller. As we grow and evolve, our mission is still the same: Make every sip an experience. How can we tweak commonplace things to make them better? How can we add value to everyday moments? These challenges excite and push us to create cool stuff with meaning. Style and sustainability shouldn't be tradeoffs. In fact, we believe in creating products that enhance personal style while reducing personal impact on the planet. Our Canteens, Tumblers, Stemless Wine Cups, Mugs, and Tumbler Straws are completely reusable, ?so you can feel good about making them part of your every day.
