There are so many “solutions” out there for broken corks that it boggles my mind. For removing the cork, there’s a regular corkscrew or the “ah-so” but what do you do once you remove the broken cork?
Many people say they keep a drawer full of old corks from older bottles but how does that fix the problem? You’ll just end up with some dried out cork causing the same issue and you’ll be right back where you started.
Let’s stop that.
I’ve been talking to a Czech company about a product that will replace the cork and here it is.
Boom. The glass cork. Complete with DuPont patented seal to keep your whisky from leaking. When I came across this solution, I realized there was another problem that needed to be solved: not every bottle has the same size neck.
In talking with the company that makes these glass corks, they said they make them in four sizes. Looking through my own bottles, I’ve only found a small handful that don’t fit one of the four sizes and they’re pretty much oddballs anyways.
I’m planning to sell these in four packs for $25 shipped (CONUS). I’ll put one of each size in the four pack and to save costs, it’ll just arrive in a small shipping bag. I looked into clamshell packaging and fancy info cards but all of that adds up to more cost to you.
Maybe I’ll get some vista print cards and create a link so it’s easier for people to reach me but until I see what kind of demand there actually is for this product, I’m going to take orders via DMs on IG.
So if you’re looking for a real solution to broken corks, let me know. I apologize that it’ll take the extra effort of reaching me on Instagram but this will only be until I can gauge what people want.
Well, we want a solution, of course.
Have a great Friday and I look forward to your DM!
