<movie_trailer_voice> Imagine a world where Coca-Cola is bottled in Pepsi containers. Imagine a world where Pepsi is put inside RC Cola cans. Imagine a world where the new Brand Promise is no promise at all. Welcome to Soda Prohibition. </movie_trailer_voice> While there was no such thing as Soda Prohibition, unless you consider Mayor Bloomberg’s attempt to super down-size sugary drinks a qualifier, there was a prohibition on...

Four Roses Straight Whiskey Mystery

Four Roses Straight Whiskey Mystery

As a relative newbie to the American whiskey scene, I am truly fascinated by the heritage of the brands, distilleries and those old pre-prohibition whiskey men (and women). I have a penchant for all things Americana and I love collecting artifacts that shaped who we are now as a nation. My original collecting sin was (and still is to a degree) vintage baseball cards for which I have deep admiration. My affection is not just for the cards but...

Old Fitzgerald Strikes Back

Old Fitzgerald Strikes Back

This week, as I devoured the blog posts of my fellow whiskey bloggers, I realized I’m more of a museum curator rather than a historian.

The pint bottle shows up a lot on ebay because of the incredible embossing on the front and back. People...

Small Weddings are OK (as long as they are Golden Weddings)

Let me introduce myself. My name is David Spaid, former editor of The Miniature Bottle Collector, which is now out-of-print. I’ve been collecting bottles of all sizes for over 50 years and, apparently, I’ve had some impact on my son, Scott. From time-to-time I will be writing for WhiskeyBent.net. Cheers! Now, on to the article. Perhaps some of the most beautiful bottles ever made were Golden Wedding whiskey in carnival glass....

Identify the Prohibition Whiskey Bottles

Identify the Prohibition Whiskey Bottles

During one of my typical Google outings I stumbled upon this photograph of a nice old collection of prohibition whiskey bottles. The owner of this collection is unknown as the photo was snapped and uploaded to Reddit by the owner’s grandson according to the original post. My goal is to identify every brand in the photo and I need your help. If you can correctly identify any of the prohibition whiskey bottles in the photo please post your...
