why are there two bottles?
There is a skinny bottle with some twine around it and the thicker fat bottle that has a cork top (that is the one i have)
I find it strange there are two different versions of the same product, i dont see any difference between the two
Anyone have an idea on this?
Perhaps a desire from bars where shelf space is a limiting factor and taking up the area of 1.5 bottles might make it a tougher sell over a competing brand?
I know that many distilleries will do different bottlings such as 700 mL for Europe and 750 mL for the US (I believe 1 L is common for both area's bottling laws, so if they only want to do one run, that's the best option). No clue how this would factor in if both the tall and the squat bottles are the same volume.
I was told by the brand Pres. that they changed bottles when the last of the old women who wove the straw around the bottles retired and/or passed away. This was around 2-3 years ago.
