Corkcicle Wins Giftee Award From as a Best Gift for 2011

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - Corkcicle was just named winner of a Giftee award by as the Best Hostess gift for 2011. Corkcicle is a wine chilling cork that is inserted into a bottle of wine to maintain the optimal drinking temperature of that wine while the bottle is consumed. The perfect temperature in wine can be the difference in a good glass of wine and a great one. The Corkcicle is the perfect gift idea for any wine lover, a family member, friends and colleagues. Priced under $30, it's time to lose the ice bucket.

Ice buckets often made wines too cold, masking the flavors and complexities of the wine. Corkcicle doesn't allow temperatures to sink too low or rise too high, but maintains a chilled bottle in the optimal temperature range where maximum flavors can be experienced every time. Simply insert Corkcicle into a wine bottle in place of the cork while you enjoy your wine and Corkcicle will ensure it stays at a consistent chilled temperature.

The process works for whites and red wines -- maintaining temperatures for already chilled bottles of white wine, while also bringing warm reds down to a more suitable temperature and making sure their flavors don't take a backseat to the alcohol.

In addition to its Best Hostess Gift honor, the Corkcicle was recently highlighted as "Product of the Week" in the Nov. 6 issue of Parade magazine, named "Best in Show" and "Best New Product - Tabletop" at the International Hotel, Motel, and Restaurant Show (IHMRS) in November 2011, and "Best New Product" at the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) back in August 2011.

The product has been reviewed by top foodie outlets such as Epicurious, The Wine Enthusiast, Bottlenotes, The Daily Sip, Food Beast and New York Magazine. The Corkcicle was also featured in an exclusive swag bag for the Country Music Awards given to top celebs like the Zac Brown Band, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and Sugarland.

The Corkcicle can be purchased online at And, for a limited time, receive free shipping when you order a three-pack or more.
