I've certainly seen more expensive Whiskeys than that. But in plain ordinary bottles. Next time I'm at the liquor store I'll take a picture or two. (Now that I've figured out how to get the pictures off the phone onto the computer).

yes but the Nazeing bottle has latticino canes in it.
Carolyn I think it was at the time it was produced, but I would be interested to see the more expensive ones if you get a pic of them.  I'm agog.  I do love the Guinness World Record type stuff!
Ivo but those bottles are boring and Keith, sorry they don't do it for me  :-[

        So an embossed Bank's beer bottle wouldn't get you going then?

No not really Keith.  I know the Bombay Sapphire bottle is quite  plain in shape, but the colour is sensational.  It has to have wow factor really.

Hi,
Dropping by as requested by Anne.
No this bottle was not made by us, but we have done about 1 dozen reproduction bottles, some selling for over 3,000 each, initially.
A recent one of ours sold for $15,000 the pair in a Hong Kong, Bonhams Auction and the buyer was the distiller! he was also the seller!
(I shall not mention his name!)
"Why did you buy back your own product?". I asked.
"Because prior to that $10,000 a pair was the best price.
We have some left in stock and can mark up the value in our books!"

We did make dark amber, heavy Old Parr ashtrays pressed, but not this bottle.
The first we did was late 1980's for Burberrys, then Ardbegg, Glenfiddich, Johnnie Walker, Harveys of Bristol, etc.
Langham glass did the Bombay Sapphire gin bottle I believe, but check with Paul.

Caithness also did some special bottles in particular c2000 A still shaped bottle for Glenmorangie Elegance. Gordon Hendry was involved in the mould design project and production... only a couple of hundred were made.

sell for 3 to 500 pounds full now.

But there was already a machine made version in production elsewhere... it would be be nice to see an example of that to determine the differences.

Ivo is yours, shown, machine made or hand blown version?

Hi M,

I think you better take another look. The 'latticino' is actually food grade pewter netting, with a few exclusive versions being made with silver, so above the glass, not within it  ;)
