We live in a, “it’s old, get rid of it” society. If it’s broke, get a new one. If it’s used, get a new one. If it’s finished, get a new one. I think you get the point. However, every so often you come across something that is too beautiful to throw away and you find a new use for it, repurpose it somehow because you just don’t have the heart to throw it away. Every so ofter a liquor company goes the extra mile and has an artist create a unique, one of a kind bottle and or box to be released for a limited time. These bottles fit this category and if you receive one for a holiday gift or give one as a gift, you can pretty guarantee that they are just too interesting to not to keep.
