When the in-laws were here for Thanksgiving we learned that the BIL loved my homemade gin even eschewing the top shelf whiskey he brought. This was good, because we were having a heckuva time coming up with a Christmas gift idea for him. Sooooooo, I made more gin and then made this label for his gift bottle.



ADDENDUM: I'm nervous about it arriving safely, so I used black gaffers tape on the lid AND sealed the whole thing in a vacuum bag! Of course, there's layers of tissue around it inside a fabric gift bag, then that is wrapped in bubble wrap and the rest of the box filled with packing peanuts (I have apologized in advance about those, but that's all the packing material I have left).

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

The next meetup should be at your house.

You need more gin.

Better get a bigger bathtub.

So, it's legal to make your own in Montana?  Nice label!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

I am not selling, so I guess so! Also, I am not distilling, merely infusing a neutral spirit purchased through proper channels.

Sealed for freshness!  Love the label - and that is how I sealed my beaded sushi when I shipped it too - to keep the display in situ, but also in case the plate I used got shattered too!  Great minds think alike!

Haha! I'm glad you shared... it didn't occur to me to use this for something other than containing spilled fluids, but now I know better!
