In anticipation of demand for its Snake River Stampede Whisky in a 1.75-liter bottle, Indio Spirits enlisted TricorBraun Design and Engineering to design a bottle with a resemblance to its existing 750-ml. bottle. Although the design of the new bottle was familiar, TricorBraun added an improved pinch handle. The new handle is located closer to the top of the bottle, which makes it easier to pour than other whisky bottles, TricorBraun says. The handle also has a narrow design. The new bottle, called the Aneas, is made with flint glass, features a bourbon neck and has a bar-top closure.
