Have you ever wished you could bottle the essence of your whisky journey? Well, the Whisky Infinity Bottle might be just what you're looking for! At Nonesuch Distillery, we love sharing our passion for whisky, and today, we're diving into the delightful world of Infinity Bottles. Whether you're a seasoned whisky enthusiast or just starting your collection, this concept will add a unique twist to your whisky experience.

What is a Whisky Infinity Bottle?

An Infinity Bottle is a never-ending, ever-evolving blend of whiskies. The idea is simple: you start with an empty bottle and gradually fill it with various whiskies, creating a blend that's entirely unique to you. Each time you add a new whisky, you mix it with what's already in the bottle, resulting in a continuously evolving flavour profile.

The beauty of an Infinity Bottle is that it captures a snapshot of your whisky journey. It's a living record of your tastes and preferences, and no two Infinity Bottles are ever the same.

How to Start Your Own Infinity Bottle

  1. Choose Your Bottle: Start with a clean, empty bottle. A decanter works beautifully, but any glass bottle with a tight seal will do.

  2. Select Your Whiskies: There's no right or wrong way to choose your whiskies. You can add a splash from bottles you're about to finish, new acquisitions you want to sample, or favourites you always have on hand. The key is to experiment and have fun.

  3. Record Your Additions: Keep a journal of the whiskies you add, noting the date and the amount. This will help you track how your blend evolves over time.

Creating Your One-of-a-Kind Whisky

Now, let's dive into some fun examples of how you can use an Infinity Bottle to create your own unique blend.

Example 1: The Journey Through Time

Start with a base of your favourite whisky. Over time, add small amounts of whiskies you have purchased or been gifted creating a blend that tells the story of your whisky journey.

Example 2: The Flavour Experiment

If you love exploring different flavour profiles, this one's for you. Begin with a balanced, versatile whisky as your base. Then, experiment by adding whiskies with distinct characteristics. Over time, you'll create a whisky with a symphony of flavours, evolving with each new addition.

Example 3: The Fast 'n' Loose

Drop in any amount of anything that tickles your fancy, no need for record keeping here. This will create a true one off whisky that will never be repeated. 

Tips for a Successful Infinity Bottle

  • Balance Your Flavours: While the goal is to experiment, try to maintain a balance of flavours. If your blend becomes too peaty or too sweet, add a whisky that can bring it back into harmony.
  • Taste as You Go: Regularly sample your Infinity Bottle to understand how the flavours are developing. This will guide your future additions.
  • Have Fun: The most important tip is to enjoy the process. An Infinity Bottle is a personal project, so let your creativity and curiosity guide you.
  • Never Ever allow your infinity bottle to run out!
