Ben Hewitt, Corkcicle’s inventor and company founder, simply loves wine and hated that there wasn’t a better solution to bothersome wine buckets. In 2011, Ben started tinkering in his garage, creating prototype after prototype. Aided with the marketing expertise of his friend and business partner, Stephen Bruner, the idea quickly became a reality. As the manufacturing process began, Eric Miller, VP of Sales at a Fortune 100 medical device company, joined the team and has been making it rain Corkcicles ever since. Together, the three have built a brand that represents true American ingenuity and captures the essence of the entrepreneurial spirit. Proving that great ideas still matter and that with hard work and great partners, anything’s possible.
