It appears as though you can do away with the bulky champagne chiller and replace it with this icy looking Corkcicle. Instead of cooling your bubbly alcoholic beverage from the outside of the bottle, this unusual knickknack brings down its temperature from the core.
No simple bottle stopper, the Corkcicle comprises a familiar rubber plug, but its form is further elongated with what looks like a fake 12-inch icicle. Transparent BPA-free plastic fosters the visual impression of realistic frozen water, emphasized still by the solidifying consistency of the reusable gel within. It takes two hours in the freezer for the Corkcicle to reach the ideal degree, and then it can be stoppered into a nearly full bottle of wine.
