Chilean Winers: 33 Bottles Waiting to Be Rescued

chilean_winers.jpgNow that the 33 trapped Chilean miners are home safe, we suppose it's time someone released a product referencing them. Actually someone probably has, and this one isn't cashing in as much as being clever, because this seems pretty tasteful. Finally - if you're just dying to find out how Florencio Alvaros tastes, now's your chance.

Each bottle is named after one of the rescued miners and numbered in order of their resurfacing. Each bottle comes in a tube representing the FĂ©nix 2 rescue capsule, and is buried beneath a layer of rocks. As recipients dig out their wine, they reveal a replica of the message sent up to rescuers which exclaimed "Estamos bien en el refugio los 33", meaning "We are okay in the refuge, the 33 of us".
