    Damn, that could turn into a massive pile of empties over the years. "no no, don't open that door...that's the empty room"

    Re: What to do with empty bottles?

    It already has! My garage walls are lined with dozens of bottles. I actually ran out of space this week with the addition of a bottle of Bulleit Rye and a bottle of Johnny Drum Private Stock. I need to get some more shelves installed soon!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    You could always take photos? Hold the day's newspaper up to prove the date!

    Ditto, except for the wind chime part. I always save my very first bottle, and I sometimes save another if the label changes.
