Joel Paglione once asked his uncle, a winemaker, why do they put their wine in such small barrels. “We could have saved a lot of time and money by storing it in bigger ones.” His uncle replied with a calming voice. “What you do not understand Joel is, the smaller the barrel, the faster the Oak infusion.” The answer was the foundation for a revolutionary idea, the Oak Bottle. With this product, you can become your very own sophisticated winemaker, who can elevate the quality of an average wine or spirit by simply pouring it inside the bottle. The process lasts from a few hours to a couple of days, depending on the beverage you put inside.
The tests show remarkable results. The Oak Bottle improved a $30 Johnnie Walker Red Label by 30 points, making it taste better than a $60 Johnnie Walker Black Label. It also improved a $5 [yellow tail] Merlot by 43 points, making it taste better than a $40 St. Francis Merlot. It is available in different sizes, designs and flavours. Cherry, chocolate, cinnamon, citrus, coffee, maple, smoke, and vanilla are all options for creating your very own beverage.
