Corkcicle

Meet the team.

Stephen Bruner.

Ben Hewitt.

Eric Miller.

  • Role:

    Handles brand Cool-inization & Development, technical stuff, marketing and social media...so friend, follow, and pin us!

    Biggest Contribution:

    The name "Corkcicle" and its icicle-inspired design.

    In a Previous Life:

    Led marketing & product development initiatives for a tech company.

    If I Could Have a Superpower:

    The matrix thing—instantly download information and have it translate to muscle memory. Probably need a little invincibility to go along with this one in order to max it out.

    Favorite Red:

    Caymus Vineyards Cabernet

    Favorite White:

    ZD Wines Chardonnay

    Cocktail of Choice:

    Variety. I'm a sucker for suggestions from the house mixologist. Although, right now, I’m really into saki.

  • Role:

    Balances the books, makes customers deliriously happy, gets prototypes built, and manages security.

    Biggest Contribution:

    Had the idea of chilling wine from inside the bottle and soon after built the first Corkcicle prototypes in his garage.

    In a Previous Life:

    Ran a PEO (payroll and benefits) company.

    If I Could Have a Superpower:

    Invisibility. I love the idea of being able to get away even when you can't get away.

    Favorite Red:

    PlumpJack Cabernet

    Favorite White:

    Chalk Hill Chardonnay

    Cocktail of Choice:

    Kettle One martini, up, very dirty

  • Role:

    Handles global sales efforts (aka-global domination), customer retention and outreach, and logistics, aka “shipping.”

    Biggest Contribution:

    Acquiring the best sales reps in the US and taking the product international within the first three months of our initial launch.

    In a Previous Life:

    VP of a Fortune 100 medical device company.

    If I Could Have a Superpower:

    Turning things into ice. If you cross the line...boom! You're frozen!

    Favorite Red:

    Shafer Vineyards Cabernet

    Favorite White:

    Not too sweet Savignon Blancs and non-oaky Chardonnays. (When it comes to white wines, I’m not too picky.)

    Cocktail of Choice:

    Mornings, Stonewall Kitchen Bloody Mary. Afternoons, Gosling’s Dark ‘n Stormy®. (It must be Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and Gosling’s Stormy Ginger beer!) Evenings, Grey Goose on the rocks with three blue cheese olives (especially with my favorite sushi).
