If you are a wine lover then you certainly know that the serving temperature is very important and can have a significant effect on wine aroma, taste and texture. If served too cold or too warm a lot of the wine’s character could be lost, hence ensure the proper serving temperature for the best experience. But what should you do if you need to take a bottle of good wine to an outdoor event (best friend’s birthday or anniversary) or at a backyard barbecue get-together party? The answer to keeping your favourite drink at the perfect chilled temperature is an insulated flask. Once you try, you’ll never want to go anywhere without your insulated flask again.
Keep Your Drinks Cold Longer
On a hot summer day, your white wine or chilled sangria can quickly heat up as you lounge by the pool or mingle with friends. Insulated wine bottles are double-wall insulated and feature a sealed leak-proof lid. This cutting-edge technology ensures your drink stays cold for a whole 24 hours, hence no more wincing as you gulp down warm white wine at a barbecue. If you enjoy red wine at a cold temp, you too will love these flasks. And even if you like your reds at room temperature, the flask can prevent them from heating up in the sun.
They Can be Used for Other Drinks Too
Although insulated wine flask is specifically designed for wine, many people love using it for other drinks as well. In the mornings, pour your hot coffee or tea into the flask to keep your beverage warm for hours at work. Moreover, these flasks are generally made from stainless steel material, meaning they do not retain flavours. Hence, no matter what you fill your bottle with, you won’t later end up with a wine with a tasting note of coffee.
Don’t Contain Harmful Chemicals
Bisphenol A (BPA) also known as BPA is a harmful chemical found in thousands of plastic bottles, containers and bowls and has been the hot topic for the past decade or so. Luckily, new plastic drinkware usually is BPA-Free. And since stainless steel bottles are naturally BPA-Free, you don’t have to worry about whether or not the container is really free of BPA.
They are Extremely Durable
Stainless steel wine bottles are extremely durable. They can take a beating and still continue to function the same as before, hence, giving you great value for your money. On the other hand, plastic bottles can get brittle in the cold making them more prone to cracking and shattering. And not to mention what would happen if you accidentally dropped a bottle made from glass – it would break into pieces to say the least.
The look of stainless steel is in style – more and more people take their stainless steel tumblers and wine bottles everywhere with them. It has basically become a fashion statement. Available in different colours, and funky design like glitter iridescent or matte painted finish, these flask can even be personalised. There are companies that make it simple to design a custom bottle by simply adding your name, initials, of any text of your choice to make it extra special.
Excellent Temperature Retention
Nothing else can keep your drinks hot or cold as long as stainless steel bottles. The best plastic insulated bottles don’t even come close to a vacuum insulated stainless steel ones. Once copper is thrown into the mix, the cold/heat retention is even better.
Easy to Clean
Most of the higher quality bottles are made with a 304 grade, also called 18/8 gauge or food grade stainless steel. This type of stainless steel offers superior corrosion resistance and easy maintenance. All you need to do is hand-wash them with a mild detergent and lukewarm water or since most are dishwasher-safe, place them on the top rack of your dishwasher.
Consider Getting a Wine Tumbler Too
Wine enthusiasts have a tough time drinking their wine from anything other than a wine glass. After all, the shape of a glass can make all the difference. A plastic cup on the other hand, can significantly decrease the experience of fine wine sipping. If you are a wine lover too, you should definitely invest in a wine tumbler. They are specially designed to keep your drinks at the perfect temperature, comfortably fit in your hand and to remain stable on a table without the thin stem of a typical wine glass. So why not get a wine tumbler and keep your fancy glasses for special occasions. Furthermore, wine tumblers come with lids to minimise spillage and prevent dust or any bug falling into your drink.
