There's nothin wrong with glass, and it's also recyclable. No matter what the boffins say about eco-friendly materials in modern BPA-free plastics, glass is still, and always will be, my preferred enclosure for alcohol. There is no chance of leaching and no off aromas in glass.

Glass is great, but with the current prices of recyclables in the USA right now, it is getting landfilled, as are the majority of plastics.

They fail to say how they stand up which it does not look like they do. Temperature retention is probably poor as well. Not that it is aimed at any of the wines we drink for the most part. Interesting idea though.

His sister company will sell the stand that you have to put bottles into. They will be made from something with an outrageous carbon footprint.

Here's a flat glass to pour you flat bottles into.

Cheers,
