“Conceptual whiskey bottle / packaging design. Suitable for small run premium batches, the label is a piece of the actual barrel the whiskey was aged in. Following a process of drying, pressing and silk screening the label is attached to the bottle and can be removed to be used as a coaster or simply as a collectible once the bottle goes dry. Each piece is naturally unique, maintaining the black color from the charring process and slight aroma.”

    Great execution, love the label that turns into a coaster! Thanks for posting!

    Without the coaster/label, the bottle is just drop-dead beautiful. The ideas of using a coaster as a label and of embedding this in the bottle are enviable.

    I believe that the appearance of the coaster could be improved by using a darker grey instead of white.

    100 proof but 57% ABV? How does that work?

    @Ravi Pina—

    The definition of “proof” has varied across time and place.

    Originally, a drink were 100 proof if it had sufficient alcohol to sustain the burning of gunpowder; that would indeed have been about 57% alcohol by volume.

    I don’t know how “proof” is presently defined in Israel. The figure may be a historical joke.

    Ravi, that’s the British proof system, 100-proof spirits are 57.1% alcohol by volume in there.
