Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest. Enter the OST Tipple Top Drinks Measure (TTDM), a remarkably simple and unique concept. The essence of the product is a 25ml measure that has been incorporated into a stylish bottle top, which replaces those supplied with bottles of spirits.
David Ostick, the product designer, wanted to create something that would help spirits drinkers who like a ‘tipple’ to take control of how much they are actually drinking.
When free-pouring spirits we all know that we under-estimate how much we actually consume, especially when we also know that we should be keeping on eye on how much alcohol we consume.
We have been using the OST TTDM for several weeks and can testify how useful and convenient the bottle-top measure is. We were sent a jigger from a drinks company, but it’s not always where you want it when you want to fix a drink; with the TTDM it’s always on hand. If you want to push the boat out and have a double, then fill the cap twice. Then rinse and replace.
The beauty of the TTDM is that they quickly become part of the ritual of making a drink and given you know how much gin is in your G&T, for example, is quite empowering.
David sent us two TTDMs in a wooden presentation box, which would make excellent gifts, although at this stage they’re not going anywhere as we are keeping them!
