Rock Bottom Vessel - 1 Litre
ROCK BOTTOM VESSEL - AURUM BASE -Honey Leather Wrap
At first glance you might assume they’re just a wine decanter, but they are so much more!
Let’s start with some technical stuff about the collection:
Natural, sustainable corks are sourced from Portugal from the Cork Oak Tree. The bark is peeled off and after 7-9 years the tree regenerates its bark. Each custom sized cork is hand dipped into hot beeswax which seals the surface preventing moisture and odors from absorbing into the cork. They will last years and years, unless you have a pooch. Be warned!
The leather used to wrap the flask are hand cut from hides that are a by-product from the European meat industry. The tanneries are regulated and ethically worked. The wraps have been designed with a tapered end that is tucked using a bamboo skewer or a nail file, making it easily removeable for washing the flask.
THE SCIENCE GLASS
The round bottom boiling flasks are made of certified scientific lab glass, called borosilicate, in a European ISO-certified facility. Think lab class with Bunsen burners. Remember this isn’t just a pretty wine decanter. Each flask has been inspected for use in extreme hot, cold and presser combustion applications, so any markings or bubbles have all passed quality inspection for performance.
THE CONCRETE BASE
Each base is hand cast in custom molds and then sealed with a food grade sealer. The mix design has been formulated to a custom blend that is 25% greener by using recycled post consumer expanded glass for a percentage of aggregate. There is also glass fibers disbursed throughout for stability and strength for the fluctuating extreme temperatures. The bases are finished with cork feet that are adhered with an industrial adhesive that can withstand the heating and cooling of the base.
