Isn't My Bottle Huge?

Huge BottleWe're usually fans of getting our liquor in the biggest possible vessel, but Kevin over at The Scotch Blog has put together a convincing argument saying that just a little bit smaller might be better. What the hell are we talking about, you ask?

We're talking about the US regulation that says our liquor bottles have to be 750ml, which prevents some European companies that bottle in 700ml bottles from exporting to us. If we could have a smaller bottle, it seems, we could have more choices.

Check out Kevin's story at The Scotch Blog, but beware...there might be math involved.

PS - We know the bottle in the picture is a wine bottle instead of a liquor bottle. Sue's the best we could find on short notice.

The real problem here is that we use metric measurements at all. 750ml? Ridiculous. I want a real fifth. Leave the metric system for other countries.
