Collectors Eager to Buy Vintage Liquor Bottles and Decanters

Older bottles and limited edition decanters are in high demand
 
STANSBURY PARK, Utah - July 23, 2013 - PRLog -- For as long as man has been cultivating grain, he has been making alcoholic beverages out of it. Today, the manufacturing of gin, vodka and whiskey has reached a high level of quality, and a surprising number of Americans enjoy consuming distilled spirits. As such, many people also enjoy collecting vintage liquor bottles. While liquor has long been sold in bottles, may of the containers themselves are collectible. A new Website, Liquorbottless.net (http://www.liquorbottless.net), offers collectors a large selection of vintage and limited edition liquor bottles.

Traditionally, distilled beverages were offered in whatever container was available, be it a jug, a jar, or a barrel. In the nineteenth century, the industry started moving towards mass-produced glass bottles, and by the end of Prohibition, these bottles were offered in a number of standardized sizes. By the 1970s, liquor distillers began offering their products in bottles sized in metric units, relegating such older English sizes such as the one-fifth of a gallon to the footnotes of history. In the middle part of the last century, distillers began occasionally offering their products in limited-edition decanter (http://www.liquorbottless.net)s, usually made from ceramic. These decanters might have been shaped like any one of a number of things – a person, a vehicle, or even a spacecraft. They were often issued to commemorate some worldwide historic event, such as man's landing on the moon, or perhaps some event in the history of the distillery itself.

Collectors find these decanters interesting, as many of them represent artifacts of their era. They look great on display, either on a bar or on a shelf, and many of them could legitimately qualify as fine works of art. As they were limited editions when new, most of them are quite rare now, as consumers usually threw them away after consuming the contents. Nice examples of these older decanters can often sell for several hundred dollars on the collector's market. Also of interest to collectors are older bottles, particularly those from the nineteenth century, when many long-defunct distillers were still in business.

Liquorbottless.net offers a large selection of both vintage decanters and antique liquor bottles (http://www.liquorbottless.net), in a variety of styles and price ranges. Both the novice collector and the longtime fan should find something for their collection at this fascinating Website.
