Boozes that taste as good as they look

We all know that the most important feature of a spirit is how it tastes. But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate an elegant or innovative bottle every now and then…

Did you know that numerous studies have shown that when food or drink looks good it effectively makes it taste better, too?
