Et voilà again: How to open a bottle of wine with a flip-flop.

How To Video

Always looking at ways to make life a little easier and more fun, here we use a variation on the shoe method – using a Gandys flip-flop (a.k.a. zōri, thong, jandal, slappy etc.), and it works surprisingly well!

PLEASE EXERCISE CAUTION WHEN TRYING THIS. WINE BOTTLES CAN SHATTER AND COCONUTS CAN FALL OUT OF TREES. WORKS BEST WITH DIAM CORKS AND OLDER NATURAL CORKS.

Gandys was created by two bothers Rob and Paul Forkan after the tragic loss of their parents in the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004.

10% of all  profits go directly into the Gandys Foundation, the “Orphans for Orphans” mission, which supports children in need of basic essentials such as nutrition, shelter and education. It has already started to make an impact by funding children’s homes in India and Sri Lanka and the vision is to open them all around the world.

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
