An Australian woman who serves her guests a cask wine that’s been poured into a more expensive glass bottle has divided the internet with her dishonest ‘hack’.
Her photo showed a bottle filled with wine alongside a box of Albertson’s Reverse along with an explanation the trick saved money and was perfect for those who ‘like a quaff of vino’.
‘It’s a cheap cask of Aldi wine and an empty bottle of Temps (sic) Two filled with cheap Aldi wine. Pour it into a nice glass and you and whoever you are sharing it with won’t know the difference,’ the caption read on a Facebook roasts page.
‘I even had someone comment the other day what a nice drop it was. Presentation can make all the difference and save you a fortune.’
While many admitted to doing the same thing to save money, others mocked the idea and said it was both strange and dishonest.
‘This is like putting a Chris Hemsworth mask on your husband. Good idea in theory, but not even f*****g close to the real thing.’
Another said: ‘This reminds me of the disappointment I feel when I squirt an Aesop hand soap bottle and the smell is Palmolive antibacterial.
‘I sometimes do this with barbeque sauce, you know,’ a third said. ‘Buy the Homebrand 2L bottle and top up the Masterfoods squeeze top.’
‘Oh, this isn’t the normal thing to do? One person joked. ‘I thought the wine boxes were refills for the glass bottles.’
‘If you have to pretend around your friends or need to impress them.. you need new friends,’ another said.
‘If you are drinking with people who care how much you spend on your favourite wine then you are drinking with the wrong people.’
