    Re: Latest Applications to Protect Whiskey Bottle Trade Dress

    Design #2 - This reminded me most of Dickel at first glance.

    That's an interesting one. Maybe EWSB or Buffalo Trace.

    Design #1 (in the second post) looks exactly like the bottle of Ardbeg 10 (an Islay Scotch) on my shelf.

    Sure does look like Old Charter and Buffalo Trace. But aren't most of the bottles designed by third party outfits who sell similar packaging to various distillers.

    Re: Latest Applications to Protect Whiskey Bottle Trade Dress

    Cliff,
    Great thread!
    So...didn't Ridgewood Reserve have to go thru this 'Intent to Use' process in the beginning of their brand as well? Or, did they somehow by-pass this step? Seems to me that this is the stage to raise your hand, if you have a problem with the competition...
    "Published for Opposition" and anyone (read, other distilling companies) can, then, oppose on one or more grounds
    Did BF have an opportunity to review the RR bottle beforehand?

    Distillers use "off the shelf" bottles for the most part, but sometimes commission exclusive, proprietary bottle designs.

    Regarding Design #2, at first glance I thought of OGD but the OGD bottles don't have that scalloping at the bottom, just on top, just like Old Taylor. The Gentleman Jack bottle has this design, but seems a bit shorter & squatter than this drawing.

    Design #1 has got to be BT.

    Here a pic of our EWSB bottle. It kinda looks like the drawing, but the bottom is different.
