Classic, plain and functional with a simple label. The style of bottle that I originally could not find.
The lip around the top of these bottles make them easy to grip. Which could be useful, if it has been a long day.
The shape is called ‘Medicinal’ because it is similar to the bottles used in an old-fashioned chemist shop. But mostly, it is in memory of my Gran who would say ‘It’s medicinal’ when pouring out her evening tot of brandy.
Modern bottles are machine-made so will have a vertical seam. Your bottle will be etched away this seam.
The stopper is a snug fit which gets comfier with age.

All labels for the ‘Medicinal’ Gin, Vodka, Whisky, Brandy, Rum and Cognac use the same font, size of font and are etched at the same height for uniformity across the whole set of bottles.
