Need a gift for the wine and spirits savant in your family or friend group? These are our picks for anyone who’s into wine or home bartending.
Corkscrews For Any Occasion | Jake Lewis, Momofuku Beverage Director
This corkscrew is ideal for wine collectors that love aged wine. We have one of these at every restaurant for whenever someone wants to open an old bottle. They’re incredible tools.
This is the standard. It’s great for any occasion—and it looks a lot better than the winged corkscrews most people use at home.
This one’s for the gadget or cocktail aficionado. You can add smoke to make a next-level Old Fashioned.
This is the best book you can buy to learn about wine. It’s widely recognized as the most essential wine reference—and it makes a great gift for anyone who’s into wine.
Our Favorite Decanter | Isabella Fitzgerald, Kāwi
The large punt helps you hold and extend your reach across a busy holiday table much easier than one you have to hold by the neck. It can also hold up to a magnum of wine with enough room to still provide the air essential for decanting in the first place. It’s also dishwasher safe.
These are great stocking stuffers—or a fun host gift, if you’re heading to some holiday parties. They make sleek rectangular shapes for collins glasses.
It’s infinitely reusable and excellent for day-to-day carrying of a precious bottle, or packing it in your luggage for a far off trip somewhere where you’d love to bring home a bottle.
Fellow Electric Kettle | Jake Lewis, Momofuku Beverage Director
One of our very favorite appliances in the kitchen. It’s the best electric kettle, and it’s especially nice for the wintertime when you want to make all your french press coffee, hot tea, and hot cocktails like toddies or even punch at home.
Cocktail Kingdom “Bad Ass” Muddler | Haera Shin, Momofuku Noodle Bar Columbus Circle
This is what it’s actually called. It has two different ends—one side is rounded for softer muddling, and the other has a hard edge for things you really need to work. It’s great for anything: soft herbs, hard herbs, or for the friend who needs to let out some stress.
