The annoying problem of being forced to drink warm wine and spirits when you don’t have the time or the refrigerator space to chill your libations has officially been solved.
Meet the Cold Cork—the amazing new device that flash-chills your wine and spirits.
Compact and incredibly effective, the Cold Cork means no more waiting, no more ice cubes in your chardonnay and no more warm drinks! Just pop on the Cold Cork, pour and enjoy the pure pleasure of a chilled drink—anytime you want it. This is the innovation that drinkers around the world have been waiting for—a game-changing device that ensures that wine and spirits can be enjoyed as they were meant to be.
At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic we, like many preparing to quarantine at home, stocked up on wine and spirits. Upon returning from the store, we found ourselves saddled with warm drinks. That’s when the grim reality of quarantine really kicked in — and when the wheels started turning. Our idea was to design a pouring device that instantly chilled wine and spirits — and with a 3D printer at home, we got right to work creating what would become the first prototype of the Cold Cork. After months of working out the kinks, we are proud to share this amazing device with you, the drinking public.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does it take for the Cold Cork to freeze?
When completely thawed, the Cold Cork requires 24 hours to thoroughly freeze. For best results, store the device on the top shelf and ensure your freezer is set at the FDA recommended temperature of 0ºF.
How do I attach and remove the cork?
To attach the cork, align the guide on the stem with the slot on the cork and press on the cork. If the cork is difficult to attach, simply press the assembly against a clean, hard surface.
To remove, grip the top of the cork, twist, and then pull.
Why does the cork need to be removed before freezing?
The cork contains a small internal airway that can become clogged with ice if stored in the freezer.
Can the Cold Cork be used on sparkling wine or beer?
Unfortunately, no. Carbonation will cause the beverage to freeze in the coil.
Can the Cold Cork be used on pre-chilled wine?
The Cold Cork should not be used on pre-chilled wine because the device may lower the temperature of the wine below its freezing point.
Will the Cold Cork chill an entire bottle of wine?
The Cold Cork can indeed chill a bottle of wine; however, the device's performance decreases with each pour. A completely frozen Cold Cork can chill the first and last glass by about 20 and 10 degrees respectively.
How does the Cold Cork perform with red wine?
The Cold Cork can lower an entire bottle of red wine to cellar temperature in under 2 minutes! Simply pour the entire bottle through the device and into a decanter.
How does the Cold Cork perform with spirits?
The Cold Cork can chill a shot of room temperature spirits by about 30 degrees.
How can I improve my Cold Cork’s performance?
For best results, after your beverage starts flowing, decrease the angle of your bottle to slow flow and increase chill.
When pouring multiple glasses, wait a few minutes between pours to let the coil recharge.
When freezing, store your Cold Cork on the top shelf of the freezer.
How do I clean my Cold Cork?
1. Remove and rinse the cork. 2. Thaw for 3 hours, then run warm water through the device. 3. Attach the pump and invert the assembly for 1 hour to drain the coil. 4. Pump at least 10 times to ensure the coil is clear.
The Cold Cork and cork are not dishwasher safe. Avoid cleaning frozen devices to ensure water doesn't freeze while cleaning.
Why won’t my Cold Cork pour?
If bubbles aren’t seen entering the bottle, tip your bottle to a steeper angle.
If your device still won’t pour, use the provided pump to verify the coil is clear. If the coil is clogged, thaw the Cold Cork in a vertical position for 4 hours before clearing with the pump and refreezing horizontally.
To ensure your Cold Cork pours consistently, always:
1. Pump after use and cleaning 2. Store horizontally 3. Follow the cleaning instructions closely
