VINE Insulated Stainless Steel Wine Bottle
'Tis the season to toast!
This next item from EcoVessel is perfect to toast throughout the day.
It's the Vine Insulated Wine Bottle. The stainless steel bottle holds up to 750 milliliters of your fave bev. And it keeps the temp just right for that perfect first sip.
Enjoy your drink the way it was intended - any wine, any time, any where.

Double Barrel Stainless Steel Mug

The Double Barrel stainless steel mug will be your traveling buddy for any drink.
Coffee, tea, cola, or stout all stay the way they started when you pour them into the Eco Vessel Double Barrel Beer Mug with Lid. This stainless steel mug is fashioned like a beer barrel but isn't just for carbonated hops and malt. Hot coffee stays hot and cold suds stay cold, and you won't wear either with the open/close slider lid.

It's $27.95 and can be purchased here.
