Wine Magazine « FUSSYlittleBLOG

My buddy Scott Fausel's company, the 20 Wines, was featured in a wine blog below. They have a great new product they call the Chiller, which is a converted ammunition box that you can put the wine bladder into, and then refrigerate.

Wine Magazine « FUSSYlittleBLOG:

"I’m the proud new owner of a reclaimed Army ammunition box. And, it’s full of wine.

For those who have never seen one, an ammunition box is a pretty sturdy piece of hardware. My guess is that it’s designed to contain an explosion should some faulty bullets inside decide to go boom. Or maybe it’s intended to be tough in order to keep bad things out. But this solid metal box with its heavy-duty clasp and convenient carrying handle makes for the best wine box I’ve ever seen.

Yep. Wine box. As in wine-in-a-box wine box.

Some mad genius over at an outfit called The 20 Wines cut a round hole in the end to hold a spout and spray-painted the side with a stencil that reads, “Make Wine – Not War.” Then they rechristened it as a “Chiller Cask.”
