It's Cold Inside

Whether the weather outside is broiling or blizzardy, the forecast for your evening is a low pressure zone with a 100% chance of perfectly chilled wine.

What looks like an arctic front freezing its way through the center of your bottle is actually the innovative Corkcicle. This icicle is made of BPA-free plastic filled with a reusable freeze gel, so you don't have to worry about an early thaw diluting your wine. Simply place your Corkcicle in the freezer for at least two hours, and then insert it into any bottle of wine (after 1 glass has been poured) to maintain chilled white wine or to bring up red wines to their perfect temperature. The Corkcicle enhances the subtleties of the red and white wine's complex flavors. Made in China.

Comments about CORKCICLE:

This product works great, the only issue I have is that the wine does not stay chilled for a long time. Also, unless you use this frequently you'll end up spilling some wine by using this on a full bottle.

      As soon as we took it out of the box the top part of the cork fell off. It will still work, but kind of embarrassing to give a present that breaks right away.

                I use it at home to chill wine, worked so well that friends asked about it and I purchased them as gifts for some of them. Great simple design that also happens to be reasonably priced and an interesting gift for difficult to please male friends.
                Love it, love, love it. Will probably purchase more of them as needed.

                            Gave as a gift to my MIL and she seemed excited to receive it. Coincidentally, was gifted one myself this year as well! I'm excited to use this to keep white wine chilled when outside or entertaining.

                                    How cool is this! I love it! First I would use it for myself, but I can also see giving it as a gift with a nice bottle of white. And you can NOT beat that price!

                                    Love the idea, but how much liquid does the Corksicle displace? I'd be upset to overflow my bottle.

                                    The product is too long. It would be hard to find a place to store it if the bottle couldn't be finished.

                                    What an awesome idea!!! I think this would work wonderfully in the restaurant I work in. What a nice touch after the first glasses are poured.

                                    Love this idea! Very cool! Clearly you need to pour a glass of chilled wine out of your bottle prior to using this corkcicle to maintain your wine temp. and prevent overfow. (it's not rocket science) Would LOVE to have one to keep wine cool while outdoors or simply at a dinner party for easy access without a bucket, ice and drips of water all over the counter, floor and or table. When can I order and can I order from this website?

                                    Thanks for the question, Trevor. Since Corkcicle should be used to keep a chilled bottle of wine at the right temperature, you won't have to worry about someone being stuck with warm wine. You would chill the wine as you normally do, but use Corkcicle after a glass is poured to stop the bottle and keep the remaining wine chilled.

                                    I think this idea is brilliant!!!! What I do not like is that you have to remove a full glass of wine before inserting it (makes sense, space-wise). But if I wanted to bring this to a picnic, I would want to bring a full bottle, not a full bottle minus one glass.

                                    So you have a bottle of wine to share but there is only two of you and the fridge isn't close by. You can then use the corkcicle by placing it inside of the bottle to keep the remaining wine chilled until you're ready for a 2nd glass? AWESOME! Although there was a bit of confusion I get it now.

No telling what might be in that plastic and/or freeze gel!

                                    Well, this clever idea has both pros and cons. It won't dilute the wine and keeps the temp constant....that is good. But it is made in China, some wime must be poured out first, the wine cannot be left open to breathe, and it seems awkward. So, I guess the cons win with this one. Cute idea though!

                                    Think this would be best for white or rose wines that you want to keep chilled; reds should breathe w/out a stopper.

                                    Great idea but any wine bottle will look strange with a large corkcicle sticking out of it. The corkcicle should be thinner so it fits the full length of the bottle and does not stick out of the top. I think it would be very useful to keep in an accommodating fridge.

                                    In response to a few of the thumbs down comments....I think some of the concerns are actually addressed in the product description or by looking at the other images included above. 1. Doesn't fit in fridge - see pic with black background. It goes all the way in the bottle. The main image selected is just showing it halfway inserted. 2. Don't want to take the first warm glass! The description says, "to maintain chilled white wine or to bring red wines to their perfect temperature". For your whites, the intention is you are starting with them chilled coming out of the fridge. Reds, you would need to insert it probably 10-15 minutes before you are ready to start drinking the bottle to get the temp down (no different than putting that red in the fridge before drinking it)....so the first glass is going to be great.3. Making room for the Corkcicle. Since the white starts cool already, as soon as you pop it open, you can serve the first glass. For reds, if you open the bottle and pour the traditional "taste" to confirm the quality of the bottle, then you can pop the very portable Corkcicle in and get a Red down to the temp it should be.Hope that helps clarify. Can't wait to have a few of these at my next Dinner party...really cool idea!

                                    A giddy gadget, but useful for facilitating sipping wine instead of gulping it down before it warms up. A great gift.

                                    Kinda a good idea but the need to pour out a glass seems a waste.

                                    This seems impractical for regular wine drinkers. Also, when removing it from the bottle to pour wine, the only thing someone could do (aside from holding it until the wine was poured) is put it down on a table or other flat surface. So it could be lying in crumbs, salt grains, where plates and silverware has been sittig, etc. It would pick up all kinds of "foreign" stuff that would then go into the bottle. Not to mention a long wet spot on the table where the chiller thingy was lying. That all said, I might buy it as an accessory gift when giving a couple bottles of wine as a gift...but only if priced $12 or lower.

                                    This looks great! I run a wine cellar and know this would be a big hit. People are always looking for fun unique wine items. It would be a 'must have' for my collection.

                                    This is a wonderful idea, and perfect gifts for Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversary, or a nice Hostess gift, at a great price.

                                    Literally a cool idea. I live in the metro Phx area and wonder how long it would work before I would need to refreeze? Does the plastic leave any aftertaste??

                                    Great as a gift and as a practical item for keeping wine chilled at parties. Definitely a conversation starter if nothing else.

                                    Thanks for the question, Kiki! Corkcicle is made of a BPA-free plastic and filled with reusable freezer gel, which are fragrance-free and flavorless.

                                    Yes! This is great!(Made in China, though...Is there an equivalent made in the USA?)And...no one gets the first warm glass. You CHILL the bottle of wine first. This only keeps it cold after opening...
