Hukka's Carafina combines beautiful glass with pure, natural Finnish Soapstone. It keeps your drinks cool for long periods and chills red wine to the perfect temperature.
To use, chill the stone base in the freezer. Once cold, place it on the table and pour room-temperature wine (22-24°C) into the glass decanter and place on the stone base. Within 15-20 minutes the red wine will have chilled to approximately 18°C and is ready to serve.
After use, the decanter should be hand-washed with care. The stone base can be washed as necessary by hand or in the dishwasher.
Hukka Design is a small family firm based in Tuupovaara, Eastern Finland. Hukka specialise in making homewares from soapstone, a natural stone that's over two billion years old. A relatively soft stone material, it can be crafted to various shapes and forms by experienced craftsmen. Even though soft, the stone is very dense and heavy. Owing to its density, soapstone has the mystical ability to store both heat and cold. It also gives off neither odours nor tastes, which means it is approved for use with foods.
