Sometimes there’s nothing better than staying home with a nice bottle of wine—or bourbon. Create a chic home bar just before the holiday season with these luxe products, from a beautiful bar cabinet to a spherical ice ball maker and everything in between.
Show your guests that you have great taste by offering them Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which was named “American Micro Whisky of the Year” by Jim Murray in his 2014 Whisky Bible.
An ice ball maker
Cirrus Ice Ball Press Kit, Williams-Sonoma ($700). The Arboretum Market, 9722 Great Hills Ter., 512-231-1813
Perfectly spherical ice balls not only make for a beautiful presentation—they also chill your drink with minimal, even melting.
Everyone has wineglasses, but only the best home bars have individually handcrafted copper Moscow Mule mugs and Derby Mint Julep cups—which look beautiful and keep drinks colder than traditional barware. Sertodo Copper is an Austin-based international cooperative of master copper artisans.
A wine opener
Personalized Le Creuset Vertical Lever Wine Opener, Williams-Sonoma ($170). The Arboretum Market, 9722 Great Hills Ter., 512-231-1813
This wine opener reduces friction from the cork for near-effortless removal. Get it monogrammed for a personalized experience.
A bar cabinet
Baron Deco Bar Cabinet, West Elm ($679). 1011 W. Fifth St., #100, 512-320-5415
The most important element of every home bar is a stylish cabinet or bar cart. This walnut-veneer Baron Deco Bar Cabinet can store all your liquor and wine, but is still slim enough to stay out of the way.
