    So , I found out that top shelf liquor companies are starting to bottle their products in plastic bottles to save money. Shit has gotten that bad. I was told it is only in the smaller bottles right now but you know that is how it starts. Before you know it it will be plastic in all sizes. God help us. I say hell no! I will not drink any alcoholic beverage out of a plastic bottle! How the hell would you compromise the quality of a product like good Jack Daniel's whiskey just too save a few dollars. I would actually rather spend more money than drink whiskey out of a plastic bottle. if you agree , please share this post far and wide on Facebook and any bulletin boards you post on until they all get the message. This shit has to stop now!

    I'm there all the time. Is plastic really a big deal? It's lighter and doesn't clank around in the bag.

    Buy a nice glass whiskey decanter. Keep it on a bar cart. Wheel it around with you wherever you go. Get drunk, take a shit on top of it, call airport security.

    Its a fact that even water in a plastic bottle for too long isn't a good thing because certain chemicals leech off into the water.

    Imagine what will happen to an alcoholic beverage over time. Forget about the fact that it will ruin the taste , if you keep that bottle for a long period of time , like say 20 to 30 years , it will become poison. Even the kid behind the counter agreed with me. The first thing out of his mouth was " fuck , I knew this was going to be a problem".

    on one hand if it's lighter im all for it as long as the plastic does not damage or lessen the quality of the liquor. sure glass is classier but if it's for a party and you're getting rid of the whole bottle in a few hours who cares. for a bar display, only glass.
