Concrete, Science Flask, Leather and Natural cork.
Clever combinations of unexpected materials come together in this beautiful decanter. A little science, art and engineering all at play.
Winelovers can chill the concrete base in the freezer, creating an ice stone, to perfectly chill the wine. Tea lovers can safely pour boiling water into the science flask and brew up their favourite hot tea.

ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH OUR ROCK BOTTOM COLLECTION?
Our natural, sustainable corks are sourced from Portugal from the Cork Oak Tree. The bark is peeled off and after 7-9 years the tree regenerates its bark. We hand dip each custom sized cork into hot beeswax which seals the surface preventing moisture and odors from absorbing into the cork. They should last years and years, unless you have a pupper. Be warned! They love the smell of the wax and the texture of the cork. Once it’s in their mouth it’s game over. So, if your cork goes MIA, check your backyard.
The SCIENCE FLASK
The round bottom boiling flasks are made of certified scientific lab glass, called borosilicate, in a European ISO-certified facility. Think lab class with Bunsen burners. Remember this isn’t just a pretty wine decanter. Each flask has been inspected for use in extreme hot, cold and presser combustion applications, so any markings or bubbles have all passed quality inspection for performance.
The leather used to wrap the flask are hand cut from hides that are a by-product from the European meat industry. The tanneries are regulated and ethically worked. The wraps have been designed with a tapered end that is tucked using a bamboo skewer or a nail file, making it easily removeable for washing the flask.
THE CONCRETE BASE
Each base is hand cast in custom molds and then sealed with a food grade sealer. The mix design we have formulated is a custom blend that is 25% greener by using recycled post consumer expanded glass for a percentage of aggregate. There is also glass fibers disbursed throughout for stability and strength for the fluctuating extreme temperatures. The bases are finished with cork feet that are adhered with an industrial adhesive that can withstand the heating and cooling of the base. Looking to always have a base chilling? We sell extra bases
