How Wine in a Can and ‘Brosé’ Are Helping Marketers Appeal to Millennials

Move over, wine snobs. Millennials are disrupting wine marketing. The age group is outguzzling baby boomers in terms of wine consumption: 36 percent of wine drinkers in the U.S. are millennials versus 34 percent of baby boomers, according to the Wine Market Council. And to appeal to these millennials, wine brands are busy crafting innovative packaging, clever labels and more approachable messaging.
Compared with older generations, millennials are more likely to drink wine at least once a week, noted Beth Bloom, senior food and drink analyst at Mintel. “Forty-nine percent of millennials say the wine they drink says a lot about them, compared to 36 percent of the general population,” she said.

Tobacco Humidor Candle

If you have a penchant for lighting up a fine cigar after a long workweek, you’re no doubt familiar with the intoxicating aroma that comes from a fully-stocked humidor. Cedar and dry tobacco smell so good together that we’ve considered just leaving our humidor open to inhale that scent 24/7. Problem is, that would mean a quick death for our precious cigars. So we came up with a better option. When lit, the Tobacco Humidor Candle will fill your space with the rich scent of a loaded humidor. Musky cedar and earthy tobacco fill the air when you spark this 100% soy wax candle. Each Tobacco Humidor Candle is handmade in New Jersey. Save the Cubans for smoking. Fill your room or office with the scent of a stocked humidor with this candle. $24

TEMPUS ELECTRIC BIKE

One of the problems with a lot of electric bikes is their styling. Though they can be very cool, fun, and quite convenient, it seems that their inventors are so consumed with the idea of ‘future tech’ that they fail to realize that design and technology are not mutually exclusive. They forget that it is possible to have something built with forward-leaning machinery that doesn’t look like a vehicle out of a Jetsons cartoon. At least, that’s the lesson that should be learned from the folks at Tempus Electric Bikes.

This beautiful bike, which draws styling cues from classic cafe racer motorcycles, is fitted with a 1000 watt hub motor and a 48 volt Lithium-ion battery – that takes only 5 hours to recharge. It can reach speeds of up to 31 miles per hour and its Aircraft-grade Chromoly steel frame supports a maximum load capacity of 350 pounds. And if while riding, you do get up to an uncomfortable speed, the 26 inch wheels can be brought to a halt with the already-equipped Marks M2 Hydraulic disc brakes. This two-wheeled melding of past and future can be yours for just $5,000 Canadian Continue reading

adidas Stan Smith Nuudes

Prior to seeing these new adidas Stan Smith Nuudes, we would have told you there was almost no way to improve the iconic tennis shoe. We were wrong. By removing the traditional adidas three stripe perforations and the colored accents on the heel and tongue in favor of an embossed leather patch and a pop of that iconic green on the inside, adidas has created a ridiculously clean leather sneaker that pairs well with anything. Technically this is a women’s shoe, but the design and styling are absolutely unisex. If you don’t have feet larger than size 10 you just have to size up accordingly. $170
