The world’s been drinking that much coconut water lately, there’s a surplus of coconut shells bobbing around and something needs to be done about it.
Thank goodness then for this little invention. In a follow up to the "perfect spout" built into their Vida water bottle, California-based Kor have released Nava, a new bottle that combines their signature mouth-friendly top with a slim filter built into the centre of the bottle.

Call it a friendly competition, one best argued over a bottle or pint. Its name is "Project 12." Twelve Anheuser-Busch brewmasters at Budweiser's 12 geographically dispersed breweries worked together to create their own "tribute" beers to fit the Budweiser brand's reputation for quality and consistency. The assignment pays homage to Budweiser's "clean and crisp" taste by using the proprietary yeast directly descended from the original Budweiser yeast culture used by Adolphus Busch in 1876 and still used by Budweiser today.
Through internal tasting and analysis, the 12 small-batch beers – each a lager using all-natural ingredients – were pared to six to take part in a summer-long, nationwide sampling effort. Consumer feedback will help Budweiser narrow the six beers to three for inclusion in a limited-edition sampler pack, available for purchase this fall.

In the same way that coffee drinkers know whether they like their latte ‘extra hot’, ‘skinny’ or ‘triple shot’, Grey Goose aims to give cocktail drinkers just the right vocabulary and understanding they need to be able to discover a cocktail that is just right for them.
