A Manifesto For The Future Of Corkless Bottles

๐Ÿพ For safety and savour purposes, keep them chilled at โ‰ˆ 7ยบC.

๐Ÿพ Flying corks can cause serious injuries and a warm bottle poses a greater risk than a chilled bottle. The bubbles inside the bottle expand as the temperature rises, and the cork of a warm bottle is more likely to pop unexpectedly.

๐Ÿพ Champagne bottles contain more air pressure than a car tire and can launch a cork at 80km/hโ€”fast enough to shatter glass, fast enough to damage eyesight.

๐Ÿพ Technique is crucial. Point the bottle at a 45-degree angle away from you and everyone else and hold the cork down while removing the wire hood from the bottle. Use a fabric material to place over the entire top of the bottle as you grasp the cork and twist the bottle to loosen it.

๐Ÿพ Too much shaking will never please anyone.

๐Ÿพ Think of and drink to/with your loved ones.

๐Ÿพ Donโ€™t drink and drive.

๐Ÿพ If possible, do this every day in the new year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM KAJET JOURNAL!
