Based in Taipei, Woo Collective is run by local designers, who started the company to revive the traditional Taiwanese tin craftsmanship. An example of their inventive work is the Woo-Collective Liquor Perfection Decanter, an awesome and stylish way to decant liquor. These guys won the 2017 Red Dot Design Award for this exact design.
Decanting a robust red is a great way to give the wine some air, which in turn softens off the tannins and eases the inherent astringency. By using a tool like this, you can easily give enough air to any fine drop as it flows down the corkscrew-shape and into the crystal decanter chamber.
Tin is a great material for utensils of all kinds. It is easy-to-clean, non-toxic and odourless, so it won’t interfere with your top-shelf liquor. In addition to this, it doesn’t easily oxidise. Tin is also great because it lends the utensil a decorative appeal perfect for modern kitchens.
The Liquor Perfection Collection consists of a two-piece set, which includes a ball and a stick decanter for helping to give extra air to drinks
The spiral shape of the tin decanting stick by Woo-Collective mimics the look of flowing water. The liquor will pour through the tin spiral in a beautiful stream. This process will result in a mellow, smooth drink that is delicious on the palate.
