The Swag - Quick Chill Bag
What our experts say...
This was a handy little product. I have been known on occasion to need a wine cooled down VERY quickly (read: unexpected bill) and I used to wet paper towels, wrap them around a bottle and then freeze them. This took away the middleman and I loved that I could just wet it and put it into the freezer. It also worked well on a picnic trip and was definitely classier than the old “brown paper bag” trick. A few of my friends commented on it and noted that it was a nice way to keep wine cool.
The materials are sourced responsibly and I love that it is unbleached and compostable. My main focus would be on the female-owned business element, I am a massive fan of that and it makes me happy to know that small scale female farmers are being compensated appropriately.

I liked that the fabric feels thick and good quality, you definitely wouldn’t think by looking at it that it’s compostable! It did work well and chilled my wine quickly. I loved that the product is 100% natural and not exposed to any chemicals – this is such a great alternative to traditional wine coolers. I love to buy natural products where possible.

I love the great idea behind this chill bag! You place your wine (or water) bottle in the bag, run it under the tap to dampen it then place in the freezer or fridge for a quick chill before going out. We’re in lockdown at the moment, so haven’t been going out to eat, but I tested it with a water bottle and I loved that it absorbs any condensation so you’re not left with any messy drips!

This really does chill wine quickly and has come into my life at the perfect time as we all picnic more than ever! A wonderfully easy zero waste and plastic free wine cooler. This does work best with the swag wine carry bag as you do need to make the chill bag damp before using, so you can’t pop it straight into a picnic basket for example. I’ve found this is also a really great conversation starter about the importance of minimising our plastic consumption.
