POSH CRISPS, INNIT?
Thought Tesco's Prosecco and Lidl's Negroni
crisps were as fancy as it gets? Well think again.
Savoursmiths brings you the � avours of Champers
and Serrano Chilli, Tru� e and
Rosemary, Parmesan and Port, and
Wagyu Beef and Honey Mustard.
Cooked in supposedly healthier
rapeseed oil, the brand also uses allnatural
ingredients, perfect(ish) for those
on-a-mission, health-mad January punters.
Go on - don't make your customers
endure cheese and onion again…

If you got through a lot of glassware over Christmas, then you'll be
looking for something durable and a� ordable. In which case, you're
in luck. German glassware company Stölzle Lausitz's Olympic collection
is made with a crystalline material which, the company claims, o� ers an
a� ordable alternative to more expensive and fragile variants.
In keeping with its Olympic name, the collection comes in gold, silver and
bronze, which is great, because who wants that see-through stu� ? It also
includes a range of cocktail and champagne glasses, including Martini glasses
and coupettes, as well as glass tumblers. We rather like the glossy
'champagne saucers' (pictured) - very Romanesque…

SIX-MONTH SHELF LIFE
It's January, so we're guessing you'll
be opening a few wine bottles that
won't be � nished any time soon. This
is where the Repour smart stopper
comes in. The crowd-funded device
is designed to prolong the life of
opened wine by at least six months,
removing oxygen from the bottle,
preserving the original aroma.
The stopper can be attached to
any bottle, and works by absorbing
the oxygen from the bottle. Repour
will be available as a
one-, four- or 10-pack,
with the possibility
of a 72-pack in time.
£1.25 per stopper,
Get your rock (salt) off
Forget about the salt rim and sticky salt
hand, nowadays it's all about going big
and having a solid salt shot glass - pink
Himalayan salt to be precise.
Made from solid rock salt, these handcarved
glasses add a subtle salty � avour
to your shots, removing the oh-so 2016
need to awkwardly lick salt o� your hand.
The glasses are available in sets of two
or four, with the four-pack accompanied
by an Acacia wood serving board for the
ultimate classy shot experience.
They're also reusable, as salt is a natural
preservative and is also antibacterial. Just
rinse with water and pat clean. No salty
puddles - guaranteed!
