Maybe you've heard the term infinity bottle used in a video or on a forum but didn't know what it actually meant?
Maybe this is the first time you've ever heard of an infinity bottle?
Either way, I got you covered.
I've heard some people call it a solera bottle or even a living bottle. Infinity bottle is a lot more common.
I like to tell people an infinity bottle is your living, breathing journal of your whiskey journey.
It's an experiment and should be treated as such.
So there's a few ways to get started and that's totally up to you on how you want to do your own.
You can start in a small bottle and progressively increase in size as you fill it up. You can start with an empty bottle and add equal amounts of whiskies, or you can start with a base of a whiskey and add to that instead.
Basically what you're going to do is add your whiskies in small amounts to create your own blended whiskey. When you add to it is up to you, the first pour, the last pour or a random pour. (I do a random pour after opening the bottle)
Then there's the everything bottle (which is what I do) where you pour something from everything you have or some people will do 3 separate bottles for: Bourbon + Smokey/Islay whiskies + Everything else, or simply 2 bottles for: Smokey whiskies vs Everything else.
My only rule for my personal bottle (and the Brolic Whiskey bottle) is that I only add from full size bottles I own and that aren't sample sized bottles.
Whichever way you decide to go, the bottle will evolve constantly as you add whiskies. There will be times the bottle tastes amazing, while other times it's not going to be enjoyable....just keep going. Taste it randomly (small amounts) or at certain milestones. Ex: For the Brolic Whiskey blend we won't taste from it until we hit 100 subscribers on Youtube.

Do you have your own infinity bottle?
Will you now be starting your own infinity bottle?

Video below for a verbal explanation:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
