Beer, Whiskey + Wine Soaps

Swag Brewery’s fragrant soaps are derived from real spirits, but we promise you won’t smell like you spilled booze on yourself. They’re actually quite pleasant, with a peppery and oaky Kentucky bourbon scent, a sweet and jammy Merlot scent, and a spicy and grassy IPA scent to choose from. The price shown is for a 3-bar gift set.

How Wine Corks Are Made

How Wine Corks Are Made

When you pop open a bottle of wine, it’s easy to forget that its stopper comes from a tree.

We wonder what they do with the leftover bark.

What we like about LomaLiving’s minimal cedar and stainless steel wine racks is that they actually let you see all your bottles from the side, turning any wall, countertop, or floor into a dramatic modern display. In horizontal and vertical styles, holding from 4 to 14 bottles.

Zombie Wine Bottle Holder

Zombie Wine Bottle Holder

Next time you throw a fancy dinner party, lighten the mood with this centerpiece. The 8″ x 12″ cast resin sculpture of the undead holds onto your wine bottle securely, and should keep him distracted from munching on your brain. We suggest using it only with red wine.

Gascon Malbec

A rich Argentinian red wine, with notes of cherry, berries and a distinctively chocolate body. Great with meat, or sipped before a meal. Try the Colosal red blend for a more complex flavor profile, or the Reserva for a special occasion.
