I just had a hell of job finding it on their website! :laugh8:

I guess they are really for chilli oil or some such. But they are pretty, and would be nice as a gift, etc. Are they beer-proof? As Harry Hill says, there's only one way to find out...

There's a good fat neoprene or similar washer in there, I reckon it'll be fine.
I'd say probably not rated for pressure. Could break under pressure or at the least leak your carbonation out. I'd avoid using it for beer/cider. May be good for some homemade gin or something though.

I wouldn't risk carbonating in that. Also says not suitable for hot drinks so probably not rated for any kind of pressure (steam?)

You could just buy the heart thing separately if that was one of the main reasons for purchase.

Anyway, short answer; no.

Seal isn't water proof, so that's as far as it goes. A shame. Pretty, though. I'll find a use.
