Most of these are just gimmicks. The 1926 Macallan is probably one of the best value drinks here - at $3,300 per dram!!

Notice that the first one was made by a Master Jeweler, while the second was made by 32 Mexican craftsmen. They look like the same bottle with a different cap and logo.

What I want to know is how they make vodka out of spring water.

That 1926 Macallan ain't even all that, and a bag o' chips...it's been sitting on the wood for too damn long, or so I've heard. :devil:

Mrs A just snickered at that "sitting on the wood" reference. :rolleyes:

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

Ohhhhh! "It is triple distilled, first through ice then Nordic birch charcoal then through granulated diamonds and gems. "

So, distilled 2 times less then half the 'super-premiums' out there already that sell for under $40.
Oh wait! and then they are 'diatlling it through ice. How does one distilled through ice?
Then, they are distilling it through birch charcoal, which sounds non-interesting, ntil yopu realize that again... they have found a way to distill through materials with are (in this plane of existence, at least) impossible to distill in.
And then... they have found a way to distill diamonds. Cold Fusion must be near at hand, ladies and gents!!!

I bet if they could distil through a wormhole it would be rilly expensive.
Some people are like slinkies...
they aren't good for much, but they make you smile when you push them down the stairs.
