My folks gave me some little JW Bells metal shot thingy years ago. But I don't drink so it doesn't get used :D

These are all our empties. The only alcohol we have right now is half a bottle of Smirnoff.

As an IBM Contractor, I proudly say, "Friends don't let friends drive Apples!"

This collection has over 400 50ml bottles, in groups of 4 each, for sampling!

Best of all, it's for sale! (Sorry-That 750ml of Grand Marnier Stays!)

I just wanted to clarify that. Once in a while I want to try something new, so I will choose from which 'family' of spirits to sample, then from within that group, which brand, then which flavor.

If I like it straight, I make a note of it. If it mixes well, and with what etc...

The finished notes can then be used to figure what to buy in the future, keep in stock, or even make the investment in a larger quantity from which to offer guests while entertaining. That is why you see the 750ml bottle of Grand Marnier--because I discovered that my guests really liked that as a straight shot after dinner, or mixed with hot tea in the winter, or as part of a cocktail requiring an orange-flavored liquor with a warm, sweet finish.

Finally, when a guest comes over, they can literally 'choose their drink' from the variety I've got, and being a 50ml bottle, perfectly suited for mixing a single drink, or 'shot', and they go about thier business knowing that they consumed responsibly.

I am just being a responsible host.

Those five families: Bourbon, Gin, Rum, Tequilla, Exotics

Top Shelf: Exotics, Liquers, Creams, Coffees, dessert types
Top Shelf, Bottom Tier: Bourbons/Whiskeys/Scotch, Cognacs

Middle Shelf: Rums, Gins
Middle Shelf, Bottom Tier: Intrigue/Hypnotiq (Blended Cognacs) Tequillas

Bottom Shelf: Vodkas, Grand Marnier(750ml) After Shock, Dekypers

This is not a hobby for the lazy. Each time I introduce a new minature, I purchase four of them, and have to literally rearrange within that grouping, so as to keep them in alphabetical order within that family of spirits. It also can get rather expensive, because the Patron, a rare tequilla, costs up to $9.00 per bottle, and when you take 140 spirits in groups of four, at $3-$9 per bottle, it adds up really quick!


Remember, friends don't let friends drive Apples! (You eat them)

Very nice cabinet there! Though to be honest, the red picnic cups kinda ruin it a little ;)

No liquor here, though. :(

Here are mine, I buy a shotglass everytime I go somewhere.

When I was like 12 they wouldn't sell me one at Six Flags because I was "under age." :rolleyes:

Liquor is not for collecting.

On that note, I don't collect anything. I have 2 shotglasses because people bought them for me. I have a bottle of Smirnoff, and a bottle of Southern Comfort, but only because I haven't finished them yet.


My folks gave me some little JW Bells metal shot thingy years ago. But I don't drink so it doesn't get used :D

Your parents know you so well. ;)

That is how I am, except my poison is JD. Well I kept this one bottle, but I found a good use for it.
