HOLYVAPE

NO HANGOVER, LOW CALORIES, GREAT TASTE!

15%-off code to use at checkout, usually $59.95 with free Australian shipping.

Vaportini is an elegant and simple device that introduces a revolutionary way to consume alcohol, in that it is inhaled rather than swallowed. Through vaporisation, the taste of the individual spirits becomes smooth and flavourful with the subtleties coming through beautifully. The spirit a person consumes with a Vaportini contains no impurities, almost no calories, and no carbs. The effects are felt immediately making it easier to responsibly imbibe.

Any spirit a minimum of 35% alcohol works in a Vaportini, however, the more flavourful the spirit the better the results. The taste of fruity liquor becomes distinctly apparent and hardier spirits boldly make their presence known. Vaportini is not intended for beer or wine.

Approximately 30ml of a spirit is placed in the sphere and the sphere is placed on the base above the lit candle. In 5 minutes the spirit is ready to consume. Depending on how aggressively one consumes with the Vaportini, the alcohol will remain "active" for ~30 minutes.

      From a review:
      http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/vaportini-is-the-best...

      The first thing you’ll notice when inhaling straight alcohol fumes is a stinging sensation in your throat. If you like the feeling of smoking, this will probably come as a pleasant surprise. But if you have a virgin throat, expect to cough a bit – not much, but just enough to make you look like a 15-year-old taking his first hit of pot.

      The next thing you’ll notice is that the vapor tastes exactly like whatever alcohol you’ve picked. Scotch tastes like Scotch. Gin tastes like Gin. Limoncillo tastes like crap. Etcetera, etcetera. The only difference is the taste is much lighter, less intense – a bit like the aftertaste of a big gulp of straight booze. If you like the flavor of alcohol, it’s really not half-bad.

    • You surely can, fruity flavours are recommended eg. Raspberry Vodka, Vanilla, Hazelnut Liqueurs etc.

      Beam, hombre… shitty Jim BEAM

  • what is the legalities of these being that distilling alcohol in australia is illegal (unless you have the licenses for it)

    • I don't think there is an issue as you just fill it with already-distilled alcohol, however I'm not sure if it is legal or not. As discussed below there are potential dangers when using this product.

      • I don't think there is an issue as you just fill it with already-distilled alcohol,

        you still cant distil already distilled alcohol tho. its still illegal. its the whole "concentrating" of alcohol that is illegal as far as i understand it, which is exactly what this device does.

        have a look on pretty much any aerosol can, it will say something to the effect of "concentrating and inhaling this product is against the law"

        The Vaportini complies with all Liquor and Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998.

          complies with all Liquor and Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998.

          im FAR more interested in the liquor side of things, specifically how it gets around the distillation of alcohol laws? your not "smoking" the alcohol you are "concentrating and inhaling" the vapour which as i said as far as i understand it would make this illegal in aus.

          @nosdan:

          I never said you were smoking the alcohol, that is just the name of the act in which vaporisation products are covered.

          Please see links to a Vaporisation Bar which was open to the public in Brisbane. They are not outlawed.

        • Please see links to a Vaporisation Bar which was open to the public in Brisbane. They are not outlawed.

          yes but…

          powerful humidifiers used to ‘super saturate’ the air.

          they are using humidifiers apparently, not steam distillation process (with the heat source via a candle) which seems like your process uses? also the "straw" from which you stuck the alcohol vapour in your device makes it seem mighty like a "pot still" to me

          yea… i probably have far to much background in distilling than is healthy…

        • @nosdan: >i probably have far to much background in distilling than is healthy…

          Really? Because you seem to be ignoring the fact that no condensing is taking place with this device and claiming that vapourising alcohol is the same as distilling it.

        • @Diji1: actually there is condensing in the "tube" much like a pot still…..

          but my main point is.. that this is using a heat source to take the alcohol off rather than a humidifier which probably dosnt

          im not saying im right…. but this is just my understanding of the laws around distilling (i used to make brewerys for a living….)

        • @nosdan:

          Using different definitions I've come to conclude that there is no answer to this. Depending on what you define distill as, and what vessel you collect the alcohol in - with that logic, would you say that the body collects the alcohol that is being 'distilled'? If yes, in that case I could argue that the universe is also a pot. It makes no sense.

          EDIT: Also, we are not collecting alcohol that has been condensed in our bodies (if you use the definition that we are a pot), we are collecting vapour - which, is not technically distillation.

          Regardless, using humidifiers, depending on which definition of distill you use, would also constitute distillation. But again, we run into the above logic problem.

          I for one don't want to argue on which is right however, so I'll leave you to form your own opinion, I do appreciate the response though - it did get me thinking!

        • and for what ever its worth… you can buy stills here in aus. they sell them at most home brew places, but they are advertised as "water or essential oil distillation" which is the only legal way to own one here. as soon as you put alcohol in it you have broken the law and people have been screwed over for it. the fact you are specifically advertising your device for alcohol use i think you may be skirting very close to the "wrong" side of the law.

        • @nosdan:

          That is correct, however you must remember that you do not require permission to own, sell, manufacture and buy stills provided they are less than 5L in capacity.

        • unless you are marketing them towards alcohol………. :)

        • @nosdan:

          If you can provide me the law which states that marketing them towards alcohol is illegal, please let me know. It is the act of distilling which you require a license for, all this is covered on the ATO website.

          EDIT: And regardless, if you are correct (And I'm not saying I am either, I have just been offering my counter-arguments), all this is moot unless a clear definition of distill is available. Like I said, I'll leave you to form your own opinion.

          @nosdan:

          '… concentrating and …'

          Actually the alcohol is being diluted; the opposite of concentrated. It's going from a concentration of ~37% by volume, to much less than that, by volume.

          'i used to make brewerys for a living….'

          How could you have 'made them for a living', without even knowing how to spell them? I guess if you were nae the one in charge of advertising…

    This'll get you addicted to alcohol very quickly, wouldn't it? Rather than drinking alcohol and having it passing through your digestive system (which is a slower process hampered by the consumption of other food/drink) you're shooting alcohol right through your lungs, bloodstream and then brain.

    You'll also get no warning signals of whether you have overdosed or not — the body triggers a vomit reflex to rid of any excess alcohol but with the inhalation method, the alcohol is already in your bloodstream.

    • +2

      pretty much yep to all of that.

    • The Vaportini can only hold a limited amount of vapour to prevent abuse like you mentioned.

        oh… so they are a single use only item? cant be refilled the second your buzz stops for you to get your next fix minutes after your high wears off?

        • Not at all, once the liquid becomes inactive you can pour it out/drink it and refill. Once a certain amount of vapour is created in the globe it will begin to condense back into a liquid

        • +2

          so your previous reply about it holding a limited supply to stop abuse was completely bullshit? caus you can just simply keep refilling it and continue to abuse it?

        • @nosdan:

          No, your lungs can only inhale a certain amount of air. By the time the globe is active again the effects would have subsided enough. The size of the straw also limits intake.

        • @nosdan: >caus you can just simply keep refilling it and continue to abuse it?

          Yes. Just like a bottle and a glass of alcohol except more scary sounding.

        • +2

          Yes. Just like a bottle and a glass of alcohol except more scary sounding.

          except the difference is that this is a direct hit to the blood system rather than having to go through your stomach first which has its own safeguards against overdosing

    Whatever happened to a pot or middy at the local with your mates?

  • Maybe this will prevent 'asian flush'?

    • +5

      nope, because asian flush is from the incapability of breaking down acetylaldehyde in the liver. You'll just get it faster and possibly more severe

    hmmm, from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcohol_inhalation :

    Effects and health concerns
    There are possible health and safety risks of inhaling alcohol vapor. Inhalation devices make it "substantially easier to overdose on alcohol" than drinking, because the alcohol bypasses the stomach and liver and goes directly into the bloodstream, and because the user does not have a reliable way of determining how much alcohol they have taken in. Inhaled alcohol cannot be purged from the body by vomiting, which is the body's main protection against alcohol poisoning. Inhaled alcohol can dry out nasal passages and make them more susceptible to infection.[9] There is also a potential increased risk of addiction.[1][3] Direct inhalation may cause nerve damage, brain swelling and, in the long term, dementia.[4]

    no thanks!

    Does it work with petrol, glue?

    • Would pay to see some idiot try this with petrol

    I just drink because I'm thirsty.

    Can make your own with a soft drink bottle and a bike pump.

    It's a party trick that you shouldn't pay $50 for, you will only use it once.

    Breathing alcohol vapor did not agree with my tonsils though.

    "No hangover" = pure B S, it's alcohol in your blood stream that gives you a hangover, if it doesn't give you a hangover it hasn't got you drunk.

    • You also are paying for laser engraved glassware which can be set as a mantlepiece and also makes for an interesting conversation topic!

      As for the No Hangover claim, if you live in the Brisbane region we are more than happy for you to sample the product.
