The 'Pinocchio Barrique Bottle' is a gorgeous oak bottle that can be used to create customized wine, whiskey and brandy. The bottle's unique design behaves the same way as an oak barrel, which allows you to age your alcohol in the comfort of your own home.

The Pinocchio Barrique Bottle is made from European oak and features an aluminum top and bottom. The oak material allows the bottle to function the same way as a barrel, giving your drink a distinct blend and taste. The fact that the bottle is porous means that the alcohol is able to breathe and alter its organoleptic structure, resulting in a completely customized wine.

To use the bottle, simply fill it with the alcohol of your choice and store it away from the light. The alcohol must be left to mature for a minimum of three days. The makers of the Pinocchio Barrique Bottle suggest leaving your bottle for about 10 days in order to perfectly replicate the effect of aging wine in oak barrels.
