[quote]“The Imperial glass bottle has some beautiful classic lines that make it look traditional while still being different. It looks familiar and comfortable and commands a quality product be poured from it. The bottle feels comfortable in the hand while pouring from both the bottom end of bottle and while straddling the neck with more mastery. Its profile and footprint combination is just right, so that it looks distinctive on the shelf while not taking up too much important real estate. In today’s rapidly evolving craft distiller market, producers need a bottle that will do justice to their brand while appealing to both the on and off premise operator. It is a tough market out there and making the wrong bottle decision can cost a young brand dearly. With the Imperial glass bottle, you’ve got a lot of those risks mitigated and one less thing to worry about.”[/quote]
