Let’s see what’s inside the March 2019 “Tasting” GlobeIn box!
Everything was shipped in a medium-sized green & white GlobeIn box with a “Fragile” sticker on the side.
A peek inside!
A small info booklet featured full color photos and background information on all of the products included in the box, as well as the artisans who created them.
Tasting Glasses with Turquoise Rim – Set of 4, Mexico ($45)
These 3.5″ x 2″ glasses are the perfect size for sampling different beers, wines, and other spirits. Each vessel was handblown out of recycled glass and features dimples on the outer edges, allowing for a more comfortable grip. The upper rim is tinted with a beautiful teal accent to give it a fun pop of color.
Hand-Carved Flight Stand, India
Handcrafted by Indian woodworking artisans, this wine bottle-shaped flight stand is the ideal piece to pair with your new tasting glasses. It’s carved out of eucalyptus wood and measures approximately 16″ long by 3″ wide. The purchase of this item directly helps India-based artisans earn a respectable full-time salary.
Tasting Journal, India ($12)
You can easily keep track of each of the drinks enjoyed at your tasting party with the help of this handy tasting journal. It’s made of recycled 100% cotton tree-free paper and is hand-bound with simple stitching. Each page has dedicated spots to record the beverage name, company, region, price, appearance/color, aroma, finish, and more.
Handwoven Bottle Coaster, Rwanda ($18)
This pretty bottle coaster was handwoven by Rwandan artisans using sisal fibers and sweet grass. It measures 4.25″ by 2″ and is the perfect size for holding a large 40-ounce beer, wine, or champagne bottle. Since I rarely drink alcohol, I think I’m going to use it as a little trinket tray instead. 🙂
Bottle Opener Necklace, India ($26)
No need to search for a bottle opener when you’re wearing one right around your neck! This unique pendant necklace was designed to serve as both a fashionable accessory as well as a handy bottle opener. The 2″ pendant is crafted out of upcycled stainless steel and was hand engraved by Indian metal-craft artisans. A truly one-of-a-kind piece!
While I don’t personally consume enough alcohol to justify throw a tasting party, I nevertheless enjoyed March’s GlobeIn box. All of the items were beautifully made and I’m looking forward to using my colorful new
bottle coaster trinket tray. 😉 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first Premium box with coupon code “WELCOME“!
