Liquor/Spirits Bottles

Liquor/Spirits Bottles

Sébastien by Sébastien

Liquor of all types - bourbon, rye, gin, cognac, scotch, etc. - was bottled in a wide variety of bottle shapes and sizes ranging from small flasks that held a few ounces to demijohns and carboys that held gallons.  As with virtually all of the bottle type categories to follow, liquor bottle diversity is staggeringly complex in depth and variety.  The pictures on this page show just a small bit of this variety.  However, there are definitive trends in shapes that mark a bottle as very likely to have been used primarily or originally as a container for high alcohol spirits intended for internal consumption, "medicinal" or otherwise.

Talking Mixology With Dale DeGroff | cocktails, drinks, happy hour | YumSugar - Recipes, Menus, Food & Wine

Sébastien by Sébastien

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with Dale DeGroff. If you've never heard of DeGroff, you'll be surprised to know that he has changed your life. Remember that basil gimlet you enjoyed at the bar last week? You can thank Dale for that. Or what about that perfectly poured martini? Dale's responsible for that, too. Known to food insiders as the King of Cocktails, Dale DeGroff is single-handedly responsible for the renaissance of classic cocktails. Back in 1980s New York, at a time when the majority of bars served drinks made from overly-sweet mixes, Dale was mixing drinks with fresh, seasonal, local ingredients and creating cocktails based on preprohibition recipes. To find out what the master has to say about cocktail trends and to see who he thinks is the best bartender in America today, read more. Dale was in San Francisco to promote his new book The Essential Cocktail and to run the Pernod Ricard mixology course for bartenders, BarSmarts.

Nonjatta: Japanese Whisky History (1854-1918) - The Jurassic Period

Nonjatta: Japanese Whisky History (1854-1918) - The Jurassic Period

Sébastien by Sébastien

It is not really in the interests of Japan's big two distillers to tell you too much about it but Japanese whisky had a prehistory. If you listen to the official versions from Nikka or Suntory, Japanese whisky started with a bang in 1919 or 1924. They have slightly different versions of the creation myth, emphasising the role of either Masataka Taketsuru or Shinjiro Torii in bringing the gospel of authentic whisky from Scotland, but basically they agree: quite suddenly, out of the blue, Japan started making proper Scotch style whisky.

Distilleries du Nikka Whisky - Yoichi - Chroniques Hokkaïdoises

Sébastien by Sébastien

Pluie incessante depuis bientôt presque deux semaines, chaleur d'étuve aux parfums de mousson asiatique, torpeur étrange de l'été qui assomme, Sapporo souffre d'une langueur presque fébrile, elle qui n'exulte que dans le froid bleu de ses rudes hivers polaires. L'été est une saison étrange, un peu mutante, certainement venimeuse. Il met les corps à nu, oblige à baisser sa garde, protection dérisoire dans ce jeu de l'observance entre les japonais et soi, et le discours formaté se met à dérailler. On se surprend à ne plus respecter les codes, enfièvré d'un pouvoir de resistance à la chaleur ancré dans la chair et le coeur, alors qu'ils ploient lentement sous le feu ambiant. Envie soudainement d'être plus qu'un invité inscrit dans une iconographie vague de l'altérité, nécessité impérieuse de glisser comme une anguille entre les blocages et le conditonnement mental d'un peuple préparé depuis l'enfance à catégoriser par la répétition des gestes et des mots tout et n'importe quoi. Irrascibilité sourde, jailli comme ces volées de boutons d'acné adolescent qui peine à murir et déchire le visage, devant cet "indéréglabilité" des vendeurs de combini ou de fast-food qui n'ont plus d'humain que la soumission au système, société "camisole de force" qui isole l'individu de ses pairs par l'archarnement maniaque qu'il met à ne pas s'en différencier.

Japanese Whisky, Scotch Blend: The Japanese Whisky King and His Scotch Wife Rita: Amazon.co.uk: Olive Checkland: Books

Sébastien by Sébastien

In the early 1920s, Masataka Taketsuru came to Scotland from Japan to learn how to distil whisky. While in Scotland he married Rita Cowan, of Kirkintilloch, who left Scotland with him to live in Japan for forty years, never to return home. She died in 1961. This is an illustrated story of one man's determination to succeed, both in business and love. It is also the story of a young girl's move to a land far away, of strange customs and even stranger language, her joys and heartaches. It is also the incredible story of how whisky is made to perfection thousands of miles away from its cultural 'home', and the history of its development within Japan up to the present day.

Arkiva Tropika

Arkiva Tropika

Sébastien by Sébastien

An online archive of my paper ephemera collection, Arkiva Tropika celebrates not just Polynesian Pop, but also the classic heyday of all tropical (& tropical themed) restaurants, hotels, bars, etc. From Florida to Fiji, from Haiti to Hawaii, from Seattle to Samoa, Arkiva Tropika is about the classic island imagery of tourism. Created as a way to both share and organize my collection, it consists largely of menus, yet also includes postcards, photos, brochures, matchbooks, and other paper ephemera from tropical themed environments, which are mostly pre-1970. Images of items in the collection are added here on a regular basis. To get started, do a search, select a tag, or just dive right in here with the most recent additions. Enjoy! -Mimi Payne

Absinthe...la fée verte..."The Green Fairy"...aucune autre boisson n'a la même histoire romantique - les impressionnistes Français...Toulouse Lautrec, Degas, Manet, Van Gogh...Paris à la Belle Époque...les cafés de Montmartre...la muse des écrivains, de Baudelaire et Rimbaud à Joyce et Hemingway. Évidemment, il y a aussi une face cachée: aucune boisson n'a suscité de condamnation plus fervente, et aucune autre boisson n'a été entièrement interdite comme l'absinthe le fut en 1915.

The Magnificent Seven blog

Sébastien by Sébastien

Late October 2008 and seven respected industry figures are gathered in a film studio in North London. Angus Winchester arrives first, always eager to get in on the action. Gradually each guru arrives and over early morning coffee and croissants, the director explains that they’re here to make the perfect round of cocktails. However, there’s a twist. Each of them has to perform just one stage in the process, but it all has to be timed together to create one magical sequence. A day of mixing, throwing, catching, dropping, laughing and carving ice diamonds was spent while catching up with old friends from around the world. Here we spill the secrets of how we turned Ueno-san, Angus, Simon, Jamie, Michael, Gary and Peter into The Magnificent Seven.
