  • Oak Bottle Master Diffuser

    Oak Bottle

    The Oak Bottle Master Diffuser allows people who enjoy complex wines and spirits to bring out oak flavors at home, without investing in a bulky, traditional, large oak barrel to age it. The simple product, which retails for $80, speeds up the "oaking" process from several years to one or two days by changing the liquid volume to surface area ratio of barrel aging. Basically, there is comparably less wine and more oak involved in this process.

    Users open the beverage they'd like to use, pour it into the bottle-shaped oak vessel and wait. Once it's ready, the wine or spirit can be served directly from the bottle.
