An infinity bottle is a bottle of whiskey that is uniquely crafted and blended from other various bottles of bourbon, rye, or other whiskeys.
- Get an empty bottle or decanter.
It does not have to be a new decanter. It can be an empty bottle that has previously contained alcohol. If you choose a new decanter, specific bottles are designed for this crafting.
- Determine the type of blend you want to make (See Types of Infinity Bottles below)
- Pour 2 ounces of the selected bourbons into the bottle.
Some people like to use the last two ounces of a bottle, others after the neck pour, while still others use the first two ounces of a bottle. I like the idea of using the first 2 ounces because you may want to drink the final ounces of great bourbon.
- Log the bourbon you added to the infinity bottle.
You can affix a removable label to the bottle for documentation or use a spreadsheet if you are logging multiple bottles and want to keep a history of your project.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each whiskey you add.
- Once the bottle is filled, drink it.
The goal is to create a great-tasting and unique blend of whiskey. If you are successful, enjoy the bottle because it will be challenging to duplicate, even if you keep meticulous records.
Types of Infinity Bottles
Rye, bourbon, or Scotch; who cares? Dump it all into your infinity bottle. Be careful about using anything flavored, smoked, or heavily peated. The likelihood of "The Dump" tasting good is low, but it may be a fun process.
Are you an Old Forester guy or gal? Do you prefer Michters? Why not create an infinity bottle of your favorite brand's offerings.
Find similar proof bourbons and build an infinity bottle using those bourbons.
By Mash Bill
Create a bottle using whiskeys of similar mash bills (75% Corn, 13% Rye, and 12% Malted Barley or 95% Rye and 5% Malted Barley, etc). You can find the mash bill of bourbons and ryes on The People's Bourbon Review website.
By Type of Whiskey
Pour the first 2 ounces of every bottle of bourbon or rye into your infinity bottle. Do not blend bourbons with ryes or other whiskeys.
