Scotland’s Next Top Bottle

There are some absolutely crazy bottlings kicking about these days! This is the conclusion I have come to when walking around a whisky shop the other day. I had a bit of spare time on my hands, so I spent it as I  normally do (that is before I went to a bar and started sampling).

Marketing people and bottle designers seem to be a pretty wild bunch. Here are some highlights of my favourite bottle designs. Genius or madness? You decide. Vote in our poll and drop your own candidates in the comments!

Antiquary 21 yo: Blue velvet lined bottle. Blue Velvet box. Absolute class. If I was to be invited into Joan Collins boudoir, I imagine this is what would be served.

Smokehead 18 yo: Remember how in Men in Black Tommy Lee Jones is wielding a huge Mega Blaster for destroying Aliens? This is the whisky world’s Alien Mega Blaster Bottle.

Dalmore 40 yo: ‘I open this tome to summon an Evil. An Evil that has been forgotten for decades, buried in the darkness’. If you want to summon Evil, than it’s £1425 please.

Glenglassaugh 30 yo: ‘Works 50% of the time, all of the time’ (Brian Fantana, Anchorman). If Sex Panther actually existed, it would come in a similarly styled bottle. Not sure if dousing yourself in Glenglassaugh will make you irresistible to women. Worth a try?

Glenfarclas 105 40 yo: The Manchester United bottling. It’s great! One of my favourite whiskies, and the packaging makes it look like they are sponsored by my favourite team. I wonder if they can get me any tickets…
