    My brother has broken a bottle of rum over his head. He's got the scar to prove it.

    Breakaway windows are made from sugar. I'm not sure but would guess that the bottles are too. So after you're done playing with them, you can eat the debris.

    I think it would be fun playing with them.

    The bottles are too. Oscar you can find almost anything on the web if you look hard enough.

    "Bottles 1" tab, AB10 product number.

    I bet the shipping will be killer, though.

    This is glass or ceramic, also. The "sugar" stuff doesn't last very long and is apparently horrible to work with.

    There's an option in the USA. No specific "bourbon" bottle there, though.

    Let us know how it goes!

    To go along with the bottle...do you prefer a square or round shot glass?

    Round seems to impart better mouth feel....
