Decanters used to be vital when serving wine or other alcohol (or indeed any drink that has natural sediments in it). Transferring the drink to a decanter separated out the liquid, leaving the sediment in the bottom of the bottle or barrel that the drink had been stored in. These days they’re not quite so important on a practical level, as most wines and alcohols come filtered already, but they add an extra layer of style to the serving of drinks at a party. While a plain decanter is fine, you’ll find some have special designs to help aerate your alcohol, which releases additional hidden flavours.
For the budding mixologists out there, we have bar equipment so that you can build your very own home bar for entertaining guests at parties, or just to make the creation of a drink feel a bit special. A drinks dispenser can make the creation of cocktails and other tipples simpler, with optics for spirit measuring, a must-have for any home bar. A couple of wine racks also make sense for storing your preferred vintage red, white, or rosé wine. You’ll find bar stools and other accessories as well, and be sure to stock up on special drinking glasses, because you don’t want to ruin your carefully concocted Old Fashioned by serving it in a wine glass or standard tumbler. Add in some coasters and napkins to protect furniture and deal with any unsightly spills. There you have it, a home bar that will rival any gin joint or pub in town.
Of course, not all drinks have to be fancy (or alcoholic). For those times where you just want a coffee or tea to enjoy, browse our selection of mugs and get some that suit your style. From plain to themed, there’s something for every taste.
