Have you stocked up on alcohol yet for your bar cart? On new years eve, or even during your Christmas parties, it is the best time to showcase your most beautiful and best bottles. Also, an eye catching bottle makes such a nice gift. Each year there are a few brands that partner up with high fashion designers to steal the show with their bottle. Smart thinking, because the package is just as important as the content. I selected a few bottles that would make perfect gifts or are plain and simple bar statement pieces that are excellent conversation starters on your next party.
