The Infinity Bottle (aka “Solera Bottle” or “Fractional Bottle” or “Living Bottle”) is an up and coming trend in the whiskey world. Think of it like your own personal house blend.
The idea is that you take the last ounce or two from every whiskey or bourbon bottle that you drink, and pour it into a single bottle.
Since you’re always adding new liquors to the bottle, there’s a little drop of every whiskey you’ve ever tasted in there, and the taste evolves over time and becomes part of your whiskey drinking history. Eventually, it might even become a family heirloom that gets passed along to the next generation.
Anyone with enough money can go out and buy a bottle of something rare like Pappy Van Winkle or Yamazaki, but because no two infinity bottles are alike, only you will have the ability to share a taste of your infinity bottle with friends and family.
Getting started is easy: Just get a nice decanter like this Globe by Godinger or this Nachtmann Highland or this Marquis by Waterford or this Bormioli Rocco Selecta or this Godinger Clarion. Then save the last bit of your next couple bottles, pour them in, and taste the results.
