The imperfect but perfect crooked neck bottles of Prichard’s Distillery


If there’s one thing that’s noticeable from Prichard’s Distillery, it would be their crooked neck bottles. Is there any reasoning as to why the bottlenecks produced by the distillery are crooked? According to Master Distiller Phil Prichard, he had found an antique bottle that looked crooked in New England.

The bottle was around 200 years old and in relation to what the distillery produces (rum and whiskey), it reminded Prichard of how the drinks were a staple back then. Together with all the flaws and imperfections, the crooked neck bottle became the perfect bottle for the distilleries traditional American spirits.
