Bar Tools for Serving Wine, Champagne and Bottles
For your champagne-loving, wine-drinking, and bottle-preferring guests, build your own home bar kit so you can serve and chill beverages in style. The classic designs accompany any style of decor, and they’ll last for years to come.
- Hammered ice bucket: Like the majority of Shinbone Alley’s products, our stainless steel ice bucket and tong set (two pieces) is hand made. The stainless steel will keep your beverages or ice chilled, and the orange shagreen-covered handles will protect your hands.
- Stainless steel corkscrew: You will love the ergonomic design and ease of our stainless steel corkscrew. Bonus: It’s designed to stand up on its three legs, making it a display piece when you’re not popping corks.
- Ankole cow horn bottle opener: We love this bottle opener, made from ethically sourced cow horns in Africa. Each one is hand made, so exact colors and shapes may vary. The opener itself is a sturdy chrome metal.
- Crystal Clear Wine Cooler: Simple clean lines in this handmade lead-free crystal wine cooler/ice bucket make it a perfect addition to your home bar setup. The maker added two subtle dimples for not only decoration but ease of grip.
Beer Glasses for Your Home Bar
This section and the next two contain must haves for home bars: beer glasses, cocktail glasses and wine glasses. First, for the craft-beer (or any beer, really) lover in your life, we bring you three delightful and uniquely designed sets of beer glasses.
Set of four beer glasses with etched glass: These 20-ounce glasses are etched with the designer’s interpretation of the hops plant, one of the main ingredients in beer. This style is perfect for IPA and stouts.
Hexy pint glass, set of two: This sexy glass beer vessel holds 16 ounces of American or imperial beers. The Hexy pint is a six-sided glass with a twist in the middle, giving it a unique look that fits nicely in your hand.
Etched IPA or stout glasses, set of four: The design of this etched beer glass is designed for drinking IPAs and stouts. Each 20-ounce glass is etched with a frosted design around the circumference of the glass.
Wow-Worthy Cocktail Glasses for the Home Bar
Rocks glass with .45 copper slug: This set of two 6-ounce glasses is made from blown glass and embedded with a slug from a .45 caliber replica bullet. These rocks glasses, sometimes referred to as “lowball glasses,” are ideal for serving whiskey, an old fashioned, or any on-the-rocks spirits.
Czech double old fashioned, set of 10 (also sold in sets of 2): Each glass in this Limited Edition set depicts a mathematical expression from well-known mathematicians and scientists. The glasses hold 10 ounces each and are hand engraved, numbered and include a certificate of authenticity.
Wine Stemware Glasses for the Home Bar
What any true oenophile wants in a glass is as little as interference as possible between them and their wine-drinking experience. Our collection of stemware delivers just that — using cutting edge “ion technology,” that produces the thinnest lead-free, feather-light crystal that you will find.
Each red wine, white wine, and champagne glass is sold individually and comes in a gift box that can be reused for storage. Experience the weightlessness of these wine glasses:
Decanters for Spirits, Liquor, Whiskey
Camp whiskey carafe: This three-piece lead-free crystal decanter includes the 50-ounce vessel, glass topper and x-shaped copper coaster. Weighing in at nearly 10 pounds, this carafe is as strong as the beverages it holds.
Alba whiskey decanter: This whiskey decanter is available in two sizes, a 60.87-ounce short and a 50.72-ounce tall, which can also be used to decant wines. Each is made of lead-free crystal and comes with a marble stopper.
