I noticed that it has become a fad among some local spirit distilleries to use giant bottles. Cedar Ridge’s own Clearheart hard liquor bottles are fourteen and one-fourth inches tall. Contrast this with the standard height of twelve inches for a wine bottle. Nebraska’s Solas Distillery is only a smidgeon shorter with its bottles of Joss Vodka. This added height is not a problem if I keep the bottles on the top shelf of my liquor cabinet, but if I try to chill them in the fridge they are difficult to work around since they have to stay on the outer edge. I hesitate to lay a liquor bottle on its side given the possibility of leakage. So, just a hint for those distilleries looking to go upscale with the bottles.
