We’ve all faced the insult, one way or another: you’re in a beautiful place, either by yourself or with your favorite person or closest friends, and it’s time to have a drink so you reach in your jacket pocket and pull out — a single-use water bottle, refilled with your liquor of choice. You stare at the sad item for a moment, reflecting that you and your loved ones deserve better. It’s time to infuse your life’s most tasteful moments with a tasteful decanter to match. The Aged and Ore Travel Decanter is just what you need.
Aged and Ore delivers a 500-ml hand-blown glass bottle inside an insulated stainless steel canister that unscrews into two tumblers for MSRP $58.
I’m going to hit the liquor store for some Cognac, and I’ll be right back to finish this article.
Aged and Ore’s travel decanter package achieves minimalist appeal with its demure stainless steel finish and wide-mouth glass bottle. Two tumblers screw together to create a safe, leakproof chamber for the hand-blown bottle.
Aged and Ore also designs the ingenious kit for high functionality. The tumblers are double-wall insulated (think thermos) for temperature control. The bottle’s wide mouth fills easily and accepts ice cubes. I’m most interested in Aged and Ore’s stopper, which the company claims to have rigorously prototyped and tested for durability and leak-tightness.
The package weighs in at a manageable 1.7 lbs.
It’s a cool — intoxicating? — idea to travel with a hand-blown glass decanter filled with your favorite spirit. The Aged and Ore Travel Decanter makes the concept viable with its durable, spill-proof design and approachable price. Available in either stainless steel or matte black, it’s suited to rarefy the air on your next adventure.
