Printed DropStops from the UK’s exclusive distributor

DropStop Drip Free Pouring in GlassDropStop® was invented in 1989 by Brian Vang, following an embarrassing incident with a bottle of red wine, a pristine white tablecloth, and a favourite aunt celebrating her 80th Birthday! To save Brian from the horror of ruining his aunt’s tablecloth again he came up with the idea of the DropStop: a foldable disc designed to slip into the neck of a bottle and ensure a smooth, drip-free pour.

How to use the DropStop®?

DropStop® fits into every wine bottle neck, due to its flexible design. Simply roll up the disk and pop into the neck of the bottle. Pour wine without spilling a drop. The DropStop is made from layered laminate (PET and aluminium) and is 100% food grade. So it doesn’t matter how many times you use the disc is remains completely safe. Use your DropStop for years to come. Keep clean by rinsing under hot water.
