In order to stand out in a really competitive market, the whiskies distilleries multiply more or less daring initiatives on the bottle side itself. G-Whisky, a French specialist in the purchase of rare bottles, presents the most original bottles in the world.
Between us, nothing is more like a bottle of whisky than another bottle of whiskey. However, with the explosion of investment in whisky, producers have come to understand that the bottle itself adds value to the product. As a result, all whisky producers are trying to shake up the establishment. They all try to compete in imagination to propose bottles that are out of the ordinary.
The Nikka from the Barrel looks like a glass cube, the Baby Bourbon from Hudson looks like an apothecary’s vial, the Glen Livet Alpha looks like a bottle of port, the Glenrothes looks like gourds, the Dalmore looks like decanters and Tamdhu looks like a Doric column.
Bottles from the Japanese brand Hibiki look a lot like perfume bottles! “Hibiki wanted to create the quintessence of whisky, in a bottle that would embody quality and tell the story. Thus, the 24 cut facets of the Hibiki bottle, which means resonance, harmony, represent the 24 seasons of the Japanese lunar calendar, which are very important in relation to the time of whisky”, explains one of the managers of the website G-Whisky.com, an expert in the resale of exceptional whisky bottles.
The most original whisky bottle designs in the world
Some whisky bottles look like real works of art. In gold or diamond, the producers do not skimp on marketing to seduce.
Highland Park 50 Year Old Single Malt
Five kilos of silver. This is what is needed to make the case of this bottle, made by the Scottish jeweller Maeve Gillies. An exceptional design that reminds us of the famous Game of Thrones series and its decorations. This bottle seems to hang on to its claws so as not to let go of the person who will taste the drink.
Impossible to make a selection of Whisky without mentioning the famous Japanese brand. And it is not this bottle, 25 years old, that will prove us wrong. Indeed, to enhance the prestige of this nectar, the house has only produced 100 of them. Even so, it is far from being the most expensive on this list.
Macallan 55 Year Old Lalique Crystal
Although it looks a lot like a perfume bottle, this pretty Macallan 55 Year Old Lalique Crystal does contain Whisky. As its name suggests, the bottle is made from Lalique crystal, which is of great value.
This whiskey was distilled in a sherry oak barrel and aged for 55 years. The single malt whiskey was then bottled in a Lalique Crystal Decanter, made by Rene Lalique who created a similar perfume bottle in 1910.
The Isabella’s Islay
If you are struggling to make ends meet, saving money or planning for the future, do not read this paragraph under any circumstances! Isabella’s Islay is a magnificent bottle adorned with 8,500 diamonds, 300 rubies and white gold. The price of this whisky is enough to turn heads. Simply the most expensive whisky in the world!
