When you've got a dinner party to go to, or need a gift for a buddy, a bottle of high-proof liquid works perfectly. But next time, skip the Cabernet or new "ultra-premium" vodka, and gift the gift of limited edition art. Limited edition art, with high-proof liquid inside.
1800 Tequila has commissioned nine artists to use their unique creativity and design bottles that have been made into a limited run of 1,800 each. Making them not only beautiful, but highly collectible. (Maybe not as valuable as a Picasso, but when's the last time someone got drunk on a Picasso?) And at about $35 bucks a bottle, an inexpensive way to become an art collector.
And if you've got a creative streak, you can also design your own distinctive bottle. Only 1,800 entries will be accepted for a contest to see whose artwork will be used for a billboard campaign. If my memory of high school Art History serves me, I think designing tequila bottles is how DaVinci got his start.
