The art of drink

This bottle of Conde de Osborne “solera gran reserva” brandy is unique as the bottle, its label and the presentation box were designed for Osborne by Salvador Dalí who received the commission in 1964. The prototype for the milk glass decanter was handblown by Vidriera Catalana and is crowned by an indigo ceramic stopper created by the ceramicist Antoni Cumella.
You can read the story of how it was created here.

    That reminds me of some Falcon and Eagle ceramics that I bought for my Dad. They contained whisky.

    They are not in the same league as the ones you have posted, but they were certainly interesting.

    I thought it might have been in the shape of a handlebar moustache.
