The Lowdown: SMOKE THIS

Even if you pride yourself on your home mixology skills, you can up your cocktailian game by adding some extra appeal with a Stündenglass cocktail smoker. For those new to the process, these devices add some smokey notes to various libations by exposing those liquids to chilled smoke. Stündenglass offers some unique offerings in the smoker category with its Glass Gravity Infuser line. Part cocktail accessory, part science project, the infusers make use of pure fluid physics and a patented 360-degree rotatable design, cascading water, opposing airflow technology and gravity.  

All this adds up to deliver stunning design, visual pizzaz and flavorful sipping.  

Stündenglass Gravity Infuser ($599.95) 

This is the company’s traditional smoker-infuser and the perfect product to test drive some DIY cocktail smoking creations. Users will find the machine easy to use with simple maintenance and cleaning procedures. The whole process allows for contactless consumption and each infuser is compatible for mixology, culinary, hookah, and aromatherapy. This is a great launching point to get the infusing party going. 

Dr. Greenthumb’s X Gravity Infuser ($599.95)
The built-in percolation system delivers water-filtered, cooled smoke. The Greenthumb was c​reated in collaboration with Los Angeles rapper and entrepreneur B-Real of Cypress Hill. The modern design has drinkers not just taking a glass, but actually participating in the preparation–becoming a bit of a cocktail mad scientist. You may not be feeling “Insane in the Brain”, like the Cypress Hill Gang but this gravity infuser is plenty of fun. 

Kompact Gravity Infuser ($599.95)
Want to bring some of the cocktail smoking experience on the road? Or perhaps you’re just out for some conversation and mixology with friends? The Kompact is designed as the name implies–a bit more compact and complete with a luxury carrying case. And while this version may be a bit small, Stündenglass doesn’t skimp on the features. Look for the same gravity system and impressive design as seen in other company offerings. Summer vacation is approaching, why not throw this one in the luggage with the sunglasses and swimsuit? -Sean Chaffin
