The Whisky Round Table is comprised of 12 whisky bloggers (listed below) that gather together every month to discuss a single question/topic that is whisky related. The Round Table is hosted on a different blog every month (12 months, 12 bloggers) and the host gets to choose the question/topic of the month for us all to discuss – and we urge you to join in on the conversation using the comments section of our blogs!
The Whisky Round Table, by the way, is the brainchild of Jason Johnstone-Yellin (Guid Scotch Drink).
Today’s great question is brought to you by Lucas and Chris of Edinburgh Whisky Blog. And the question is:
“This month we would like to ask you about something which is not often discussed by geeks like us – packaging! We all know how important it is for whiky brands to have that extra pull factor on the shelf. But are you personally suckers for a pretty bottle or could you not care less? Are you all for traditional or do you like to see modern designs creeping into this conservative industry? And finally, since it’s awards season, let us know what was in your opinion the sexiest and the ugliest packaging of 2010! ”
