GreatDrams Top 10 Whisky Bottles

GreatDrams Top 10 Whisky Bottles by Design

let’s begin

Do you ever consider the bottle your whisky comes in? Here at GreatDrams we like to take a closer look at all aspects of our favourite whiskies. That of course includes the glass that surrounds that precious golden liquid, so without further ado, here is the GreatDrams Top 10 Whisky Bottles.

10. GEORGIA MOON

Georgia Moon does not shy away from its moonshine roots. At only 30 days old, this is possibly the youngest spirit on the market. And the jar it comes in only serves to remind us of that. As simple and inelegant as it may be, the jar really works. This is moonshine after all, so why not continue the theme right down to the very container it comes in?

9. nikka samurai

Bottle cost: £268.73

Hailing its Japanese roots, the Nikka Samurai bottle is intricate and exciting. The dram itself may not be one of the greatest to come out of the Japanese distillery, but the bottle alone is worth investing in. It embodies the heritage of its country of origin and brings together whisky and the warrior spirit. This is a fantastic bottle to add to any collection and really stands out as an impressive bottle.

8. glenlivet 70

 

With an incredibly impressive age statement comes an even more incredible bottle. The Glenlivet 70-Year-Old comes in the shape of a single water droplet and is presented in a neat wooden box. This bottle represents the essence of the liquid, creating nuances between the packaging and the nature of uisge beatha, “water of life”. This bottle brings together sleek minimalist design as well as the very essence of what whisky is.

7. chivas regaL vivienne westwood

 

There are so many different elements to the limited edition Chivas Regal Vivenne Westwood packaging. For the proud vintage British flag wrapped around the bottle to the blue tartan ribbon slung around the neck. This bottle pays homage to more than just the Scottish roots of Chivas Regal, but also to the British roots and the long history that goes between the two.

6. bruichladdich

 

The design of the Bruichladdich bottle is simple. It is a deviation away from the normal whisky bottle shape that includes a long body and a bulge at the neck. The Bruichladdich bottle transports its whisky into the 21st century. It is bright with clear and straight lettering that gives you all the information you need to know. It may not be one of the most elaborate bottles available, but I have to say it is one of my favourites.

5. monkey shoulder

 

Again, this bottle has a simple design, but it is one that holds both the attention and intrigue of the drinker. The first time I encountered Monkey Shoulder I couldn’t believe it was a Scotch blend, I though it was something much more exotic and rare. The bell shaped bottle with the minimalist label and three monkey metal embossment just stood out of the shelf. It looked new and refreshing against the other, more traditional bottles that surrounded it. It may not be too elaborate, but it definitely owns its look and serves a great dram to boot.

4. tincup

 

A relatively unknown brand from the rolling hills of the Rocky Mountains (the American side), the bottle this dram comes in is uniquely its own. With a distinct six sided shape, this bottle is also embossed with the brand name and emblems. The most exciting part of this bottle is perhaps that its cap doubles as a literal tin cup. This is throwback to the days when miners would drink from tin cups. It captures its own history and moves that history forward, allowing new drinkers to connect with the past it seeks to emulate.

3. Highland Park Thor/Odin/Loki/Freya
