You Can Now Buy A Handbag With A Built-In Wine Dispenser
An ingenious new handbag has been created that allows you to pour wine from it.
The accessory has already hit the shelves in Kmart in Australia, where you can also buy it online. But it looks like the incredible invention isn’t available to ship worldwide at the moment.
The Wine Carrier with Drink Dispenser is only AU $25 (£13.70) and it includes a ‘bladder bag’ which has a spout.
It’s described as ‘ultra-safe, easy-clean and leak-proof’ and could be used for picnics and outdoor gatherings.
It also has a removable shoulder strap which you can adjust. The drinks container has ‘high density thermal insulation’, meaning your beverage of choice will keep its temperature.
Seems like the perfect Christmas present to me.
But once you have the capacity to take your own drinks out with you, you might also want to make sure you’re fully stocked up at home.
Of course, a few bottles in the alcohol cupboard would be enough for most people, but one inspiration of a man – who happened to hate dead space – decided to embed a wine cellar into his staircase.
Murray Berrill – owner of the appropriately named building company Murray Berrill Constructions – spent an estimated AU $5,000 (£2,700) on the wine storing staircase, using drawers purchased from hardware store Bunnings.
However, it could cost him a fair bit more to stock up the staircase, as it can hold an impressive 156 bottles of plonk.
Murray, from Bendigo, Victoria, said the cellar is well insulated and has a thermometer installed to keep track of temperature, so they can make sure the wine doesn’t cook in the summer months.
The 58-year-old also said he may add a small chilling unit.
Speaking to The Daily Mail, he said: “I hate dead space when renovating a house, as you’re essentially paying for nothing. So we thought of putting the wine in drawers in the staircase rather than behind it.
“The drawers are a wide width and are very strong – we spent around $500 (£250) at Bunnings just on the drawers alone.
“We had to work out how all the bottles were going to fit and make sure the entire design was strong enough.”
