Yeti and Corkcicle tumblers, oh how I miss you

l mostly live in warm, sunny South Florida, but I’ve spent most of this summer in New York where it’s been hotter than usual, with over 20 days above 90 degrees. I miss my Yeti. I miss my Corkcicle!

tumbler corkcicle group

I never drive anywhere without cold water in Florida so why would I want to in NY summers?  Surprisingly, most people up here don’t have one.   Looking for a great gift for someone in the Northeast? You just found it.

Some of my favorite Corkcicle Tumbler benefits:

  • I can pour a beer into it and it’s cold to the last drop.
  • Spill proof lid. If you’ve ever had a Yeti, you know what I’m talking about.
  • Easy grips on each side. I never knew how much I’d appreciate having them, until I used an old brand again that didn’t. I’m sure it costs more to manufacture, but I think it’s worth it.

Sadly, color Corkcicle’s are rarely available for custom, but check back with us or request an advance order, 6-12 months, and we’ll do our best. Or you can choose from stock black, white, or stainless any time.

Custom Logo Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge vs Yeti Lowball

The custom logo Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge and custom logo Yeti Lowball are great ‘cold drink’ gift ideas,  serving different markets. With different approaches to keeping spirits cold, as a gift item, they serve two different recipient types. The look of the product is completely different, and should be take into consideration when choosing as a gift item. Because the Whiskey Wedge does not have dual use to keep liquids hots (they have other products for that), this review compares the two products only as a gift to keep drinks cold.

Whiskey Wedge vs Lowball AESTHETICS

custom logo whiskey wedge
Whiskey wedge with laser etched custom logo.

The Yeti lowball is made of the same materials as their other Rambler series products, a highly polished stainless steel, and your company logo can be laser marked, typically black or a shade of grey for optimal results. The Whiskey Wedge is made of glass and your logo is laser etched. It’s easy to imagine the Whiskey Wedge in any indoor environment, from boardroom to dining room, and even on the patio.  The lowball doesn’t have the same aesthetic panache; Yeti is made for the outdoors, and is the better choice for camping, boating and backyard pool areas, where glass is frowned upon and impractical.

Yeti Rambler Lowball keeps cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot; lid is optional extra.

Whiskey Wedge vs Lowball COLD TECHNOLOGY

Yeti relies on the double wall insulation to keep liquids cold, and eliminate outside sweat. Add your ice, add your spirit, and the lowball will keep the ice from melting as fast as a standard cocktail glass.

Corkcicle relies on the reduced ice surface to keep your drink cold and undiluted.

HOW WHISKEY WEDGE WORKS

  1. Place silicone form over glass
  2. Fill glass with water through the hole to fill line
  3. Chill for at least 4 hours in freezer
  4. Remove silicon from glass

Based on the technology,  Yeti user will have some instant dilution of their spirit, while the wedge will produce a less diluted drink, at least in the short term, especially if being used indoors in a controlled temperature.

Whiskey Wedge vs Lowball  FUNCTION

With Yeti, just add drink, ice and go. With the Whiskey Wedge, plan ahead.

Whiskey Wedge vs Lowball PRICE

$17.95 retail blank vs $24.99 retail blank. Customization costs are comparable for both products. Quantity discounts are available for Corkcicle, but not Yeti.  Either would make a great executive or incentive gift; giving more than one is advised for senior executives so they can share a cold drink with their friends.

Whiskey Wedge vs Lowball Review Summary

Outdoor or indoor use is the great separator for which product is the best gift idea.  Is the recipient an avid outdoorsmen into hunting, camping, fishing, boating etc?  Or is the recipient  more likely to use at home or work?  Does the recipient drink bourbon, whiskey, scotch, vodka,  tequila or even mixed drinks? If you live somewhere it gets hot, either will get used.

Corkcicle Custom Logo Tumbler vs Yeti Rambler

What do you do when you can’t get a Yeti?  Scour the earth for a quality alternative. That’s what led me to finding this great brand. I started asking around and found that many of my friends not only knew the Corkcicle brand, but owned a product and raved about it. “Love, love, love my Corkcicle.” Not only that, but they talked about it so much their friends have asked about them too. A two-time brand winner of Oprah’s favorite’s is proof this is a hot quality gift item.

Corkcicle Tumbler Lid vs Yeti Rambler Lid

One thing I like about the Corkcicle tumbler is that the lid has a spill proof closure. Most other Yeti owners and I have all suffered from the inadvertent spill through the open hole on the Yeti lid, and despite requests for over a year, there’s still no updated lid version with a closure.

2016 REVIEW UPDATE: Yeti has announced a spill proof lid will be coming in 2016.  The Yeti lid has a snugger fit than Corkcicle; you can hold a full Yeti tumbler by the lid, but not the Corkcicle (no reason you’d want to, but I tried anyway).  UPDATE DECEMBER 2016. Yeti did not release the lid.

Corkcicle Tumbler vs Yeti Rambler Colors

Since Yeti only offers stainless steel, Corkcicle hands down has more color  options, and cool variety of finishes. Like a car, the finish can be scratched, but as a marketer, I prefer color to stainless for branding.

Corkcicle Tumbler vs Yeti Rambler ‘Cold’ Capability

2016 REVIEW UPDATE:  Corkcicle, with it’s triple wall insulation, is a worthy competitor in maintaining cold liquids.  Both brands claim to keep drinks cold twice as long as plastic tumblers. In my unscientific testing, Corkcicle stayed cold longer!

The test:  Ran the tap water a bit. Added 1 cup of tap water each to the Yeti 30 oz and the Corkcickle 24 oz. Added 1 cup of ice cubes to each. Put the lid on. Interior home temperature 75.

  • Yeti ice was melted 18 hours later.
  • Corkcickle was melted 22 hours later.

You could run this test and get different results. Both excel at keeping drinks cold.

Corkcicle Tumbler vs Yeti Rambler ‘HOT’ Capability

I didn’t run any tests to compare. Presumably, they’ll both excel due to the insulation construction.

Corkcicle Tumbler vs Yeti Rambler Size

  • Yeti Rambler Tumbler comes in 20 oz and 30 oz sizes.yeti rambler tumbler 30
  • Corkcicle Tumbler comes in 16 oz and 24 oz sizes.corkcicle tumbler 24oz glosswhite side

If you’re a power drinker like me, get the bigger size of either brand. I started with the 30 oz Yeti. My hands are not that big, so when full, it was kind of heavy if holding onto for any length of time.  I now use the 24 oz Corkcicle almost exclusively and it’s plenty big enough for me.

Corkcicle Tumbler vs Yeti Rambler MSRP as of December 2016

  • Yeti 20 oz, $29.99
  • Yeti  30 oz, $39.99
  • Corkcicle 16 oz, starting at $24.95
  • Corkcicle 24 oz, starting at $29.95

Both manufacturers require authorized resellers to abide by strict pricing rules, including no advertising below Manufacter Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).  The Corkcicle Waterman collection sells at a $3 premium.  MSRP is for blank units without logo. Ask us about free logo imprinting, set up fees, and free shipping.

Corkcicle Tumbler vs Yeti Rambler Customization

For stainless steel only, the options are basically the same. Using a laser, shades of grey to black can be achieved for a permanent etch.

For color tumblers, the color is removed with the laser to create a contrast between tumbler color and stainless below. Corkcicle also offers a 4 color logo option.

Corkcicle vs Yeti Review

From the Corkcicle non-slip bottom to keep it from from sliding, to the choice of colors, there’s a lot to like.  For large orders, we can even custom manufacturer your own color.  Are there other tumblers with spill proof lids and colors? Yes, and I’ve tried several of them. They didn’t match up for a variety of reasons. I would not hesitate to buy Corkcicle’s instead of Yeti for your custom logo tumblers.

I’m so happy I found this brand. We offer the entire line of products to our corporate clients as a great gift item. Click here for the entire Corksicle catalog. Click here for select Corkcicle items online for immediate purchase.

For our Texas customers that only buy Yeti tumblers, an alternative popular item is the Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge.
