14. Laguiole Jean Dubost Waiter’s Corkscrew
Fine handmade cutlery has been produced in and around the French village of Laguiole and the surrounding region since the 1800s. There’s an iconic association between a Laguiole corkscrew and wine, combining two great French contributions to the world. This is an heirloom-worthy wine key that will elevate the ritual of uncorking your wine. As long as you can keep your friends from pocketing it, it’ll last you forever.
15. Aarke Carbonator 3
Leave it to the Swedes to design the first carbonator you’ll actually want to look at on your kitchen counter. The sleek design with its metal arm looks more like a manual Italian espresso machine than a soda maker. In function, it produces extremely bubbly water, which is perfect for whiskey highballs, mojitos, or other cocktails where you really want the fizz to last.
16. Baccarat Harmonie Tumbler Set
The ultimate glasses for sipping whiskey on the rocks, this set of two cut crystal tumblers—from French luxury crystal maker Baccarat—is the pinnacle of premium glassware. They’re heavy at the base, but have a very thin rim, and the cut lines provide a nice grip when condensation forms on the outside.
17. Ghurka Pairing No. 285
This is the last wine caddy you’ll ever need—and one any wine lover will cherish. Ghurka leather goods have been made by hand in Norwalk, CT, since 1975. With space for two bottles in its padded interior, Pairing No. 285 is made of vegetable-tanned leather stamped with the classic Ghurka crest and lined with iconic Ghurka plaid. Thoughtful details include a leather handle and a zipper as smooth as butter.
