I was wondering something. I was wondering where the Bruichladdich Octomore Bottle comes from. I mean someone has to make it … right?
Right, someone does!
The bottle design used for the Octomore Bottles is called “Geisha”.
The product information of this bottle can be downloaded from the Saverglass website but I also have it available for download here: FICHE_GEISHA_5
The Geisha bottle is a Registered Design by Saverglass © : Design number 4124
Some technical information:
- FINISH: Plate
- HEIGHT: 320.0 mm
- WEIGHT: 810.0 gr
- BASE SECTION: 67 mm
- SHOULDER SECTION: 68.9 mm
- ENTRANCE BORE DIAMETER: 21.5 mm
Plate is a reference to the flat finish of the top of the bottle.
The bottle can be bought in 50 cl, 70 cl, 75 cl and 100 cl volumes.
The manufactures describes the bottle as follows:
Geisha : a Japanese woman, trained from an early age to provide dancing, singing and conversation in tea houses and banquets. GEISHA asserts its Japanese inspiration through the subtle harmony between the sensuality of its curved silhouette and its sharp, narrow shoulder. Its fluid, slender lines are soothing and refined, endowing it with a delicate and magnetic singularity.
