Just in case you haven't seen this yet, it looks like Johnnie Walker will be available in paper bottles next year.  ?Will consumers accept this? Will it become a "trend" (I sure hope not)

Puts a new spin on recycling, no? Let's see if I did this correctly. Hopefully the link works.

Milk, and juice are commonly in paper cartoons.  I don't drink either. How successful was/is plastic bottles for liquor?

Johnnie Walker in a juice box.  What's the shelf life before it starts to oxidize.  With Johnnie Walker Red, could you even tell the difference. ?

Well, there is any whisky where it won’t make that much difference what the container is made of then it would probably be JW Red.

I expect to await the long-term proof of the viability of paper containers for any of my whiskey.    When whiskeys so packaged have been in bunkers for 30-years I'll make my decision; based upon the remaining qualities (or lack thereof) of the contents.   This gives me a doubled chance of making the best of this situation.   1) I will have definitive data upon which to base my decision.  2) I'll be long gone, thus preventing a wrong decision!

This might reduce the stigma of drinking from a bottle in a paper bag.

 

Paper is made from wood pulp. Does this mean Harry can continue to age his bourbon in paper bottles stored in the trunk of his car?
