Some people really like gin. Some people really hate gin. We’re pretty much evenly divided here in the office, but even the guys that think gin isn’t all that fantastic think this product is cool. Why? Because how many people can say they’ve made their own booze? For $40 (and the cost of an “affordable” bottle of vodka), you get everything you need (juniper berries, proprietary spice blend, strainer and funnel) to make 750ml of homemade gin. The Homemade Gin Kit also includes a classic 500ml glass swing top bottle and a 250ml glass swing top flask, so it’s perfectly outfitted for you to keep a bottle for the bar and gift one to a friend. Combine everything following the included instructions and 36 hours later you have homemade gin. It’s like magic, but useful in the real world.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
