The British subscription company Garcon Wines has recently created a flattened wine bottle that perfectly fits into your mailbox, er, letterbox, (British English) for that perfect weeknight bottle of vino. The bottle, designed to fit specifically in your letterbox, avoids the hassle of lost packages, as well as post-work errands to the local liquor shop. As The Telegraph reports, the bottles are made from “tough glass-like plastic and are slightly taller than your average wine bottle, but are around half as thick.” The bottles come insulated in a cardboard box to avoid breakages and spillages upon delivery. Subscriptions begin at 10 British Pounds per month. And don’t think about keeping these wines forever; they’re meant to be enjoyed on fly. Telegraph quotes co-founder Santiago Navarro saying “We are not supplying fine wines that would be put in cellars in months or years. Hopefully the majority will be drunk within three months.” Wine sent directly to our mailbox that’s meant to be consumed ASAP? We could get on board with that.
