Tituss Burgess has announced via his Instagram that we'll be able to enjoy an actual pinot noir called Pinot by Tituss!Read More
I trust this speaks for itself.Read More
It's everything we've ever dreamed of.
There's Game of Thrones-themed beer and there are Game of Thrones-inspired cocktails, but what about some drink for the more refined and authentic Westerosi palette? Soon there'll be plenty for the alcoholic Lannister matriarch in all of us. More wine, peasants!Read More
Unless you're Ron Swanson, in which case, "this is the wrong way to consume alcohol."
Man, who even drinks alcohol anymore? Boring, right? Tim Shaw from National Geographic Channel's None Of The Above prefers to use the stuff in cool science experiments, and he stopped by the Swift Hibernian Lounge in the Lower East Side to show us some of his favorites that you can try your yourself at home.Read More
Everyone prepare your ridiculously elaborate drink order now.
Four Loko may be banned, but a strategically covered mermaid is ready to fill the nation's caffeine and alcohol void. Starbucks has announced they will start selling beer and wine across the US as part of an ongoing attempt to fulfill America's every beverage desire.Read More
Because there wasn't enough of a monkey on their backs already with all that catnip we give 'em.
After a long, stressful day of sleeping on various surfaces of your home, your cat just wants to relax and unwind. But what's a stressed-out feline to do when water our of a bowl on the ground just won't cut it? Open up a bottle of Nyan Nyan Neoveau wine, of course.Read More
Maybe don't put live snakes in wine bottles?
A woman in northern China surnamed Liu was attacked by a snake. Why am I telling you this? Because that snake had been soaking in a closed wine bottle for three months before it struck Liu. She had been making snake wine, which I guess is a thing, and when she went to add more alcohol the snake made its move. This is not the first of these attacks.Read More
You can just order beakers from a laboratory supply store and drink from those, but these are classier.
Remember in high school chemistry class when your teacher repeatedly stressed in no uncertain terms that you shouldn't drink from the beakers, but how you really, really wanted to? Well now you can! Or at least that's what designer Marshall Jamshidi is hoping to make happen. He has a Kickstarter up for his set of scientifically inspired glassware called Periodic TableWare, and we now pine for it -- or whatever the scientific version of pining for something is.Read More
5 Billion Second Rule: Mint Condition Roman Shipwreck Could Hide Delicious, 2,000-Year-Old Leftovers
Basing their decision on studies showing that happy animals produce meat that has a better taste, Languedoc-Roussillon winemaker Jean-Charles Tastavy partnered with farmer Claude Chaballier to experiment. Originally, they fed the cows the remainders of pressed grapes combined with water but have since moved on to straight up giving them wine. Somewhat impressively, each cow imbibes up to two bottles per day.Read More
You probably wouldn't imagine that many wine connoisseurs are particularly interested in Transformer-style mech robots, but for the one or two out there who are, a very unique and uniquely awesome wine rack is on the market. As much art installation as wine rack, the WineMech stands six feet tall and is a one-of-a-kind and custom-welded out of a massive collection of used transmission parts from a veritable army of automobiles. Each piece has been meticulously cleaned to insure the removal of all corrosive meaterials, painted gunmetal grey, and clear-coated. In addition to being able to hold approximately 32 bottles of wine, this bad boy is also out-fitted with a bunch of LEDs because why not?Read More
They say a fine wine gets better with age. If so, it'll probably also get better if you just throw a 4.5 billion year old meteorite in there as well, right? That might be up for debate, but that hasn't stopped Ian Hutcheon from doing exactly that to produce his space-tastic wine Meteorito: "The wine that's made with a really old rock in it." I'm not sure that's the official Meteorito tagline, but it might as well be.Read More
In what seems to be a slap in the face towards fossil fuels, the Exige 270E Tri-fuel sports car runs on three things: chocolate, cheese, and wine. As catchy as that is, it's actually a somewhat deceptive marketing ploy. This sexy looking car designed by Lotus Engineering actually runs on ethanol, technically, but it derives that ethanol from the aforementioned products and can use that ethanol to go from 0-60 in under 4 seconds.
So it runs on chocolate, cheese, and wine in the same way that your normal car runs on dead dinosaurs. Still, it makes for an interesting angle on ethanol and the myriad ways to produce it that don't involve, you know, boring into the earth and robbing her of both her innocence and natural beauty. In regard to these three products, ethanol is typically made from whey, from the cheese-making process; surplus chocolate (as if); and low-grade wine. Still, I prefer to use those things to fuel my body, but maybe that's just me.Read More
When Pennsylvania introduced by-the-bottle wine vending machines, it caused quite a stir in the States, but as ever in matters oenological, France is far ahead of us: Some French supermarkets have gas station-like wine pumps. You bring a jug, water bottle, or what have you to the store and fill it up with red, white, or rosé, print out a receipt, and then pay prices as low as $2 a liter, or roughly $8 a gallon, for your bounty. Considering that the standard wine bottle holds 750 milliliters (for the metric illiterate, that's three-quarters of a liter), you get a lot of bang for your Euro. And did we mention it's environmentally friendly?Read More
