Whisky Kilt

Postby Iain » Tue Aug 16, 2005 10:37 am

Visiting Rothesay at the weekend, I noticed a special gift for sale in the Winter Gardens shop - a Whisky Kilt. It consists of kilt, dress jacket, shirt and bow tie, and it fits perfectly on a whisky bottle for that distinctive Scottish touch. All for just £3.95.

Has anyone purchased one?

Good gracious no :)

I have a similar thing but from China. It's a Chinese outfit unsurprisingly. Personally I would never cover a whisky bottle's naked beauty. Well perhaps some tasteful lingerie.

Hi there,

if you want lingerie on a bottle you should buy a French Piper-Heidsieck Champagne Brut dressed bei Jean-Paul Gaultier. The bottle is also known as "La Femme fatale". Looks nice though. That fits.
But a whisky kilt on a bottle of scotch? Wouldn´t and couldn´t make it more so in my opinion.

Looked this up - I guess the Scotch version would be a kilt with / without a big pair of y-fronts.

Kind of hypnotising - Imagine 60 bottles of whisky staring at you in kilts :)

Hi there,

I looked into the kilt business. They do have them in different tartans! Ok, I give in if you are Scottish or of Scottish descent you have to have them. Might even do the whisky in the bottles good, light protection, you know. :wink:

Hi there,

:D It's great isn't it - a true gem in the camp collection!
The glass with ice makes me wonder if it's scotch but the bottle in the background suggests brandy.

I'd like to have one actually......... :oops: .....seriously I would!

Matt, don't you feel a little funny looking under the kilt to see which bottle is which?

Visited Rothesay last year, by the way--bit of a run-down old resort town, but marvelous history, Vikings and all. Bute's a nice little island. Anybody been in the Port Royal Hotel in Port Bannatyne? Now there's a peculiar place--beer casks sitting on the bar, Russian cuisine, more strange vodkas than you can shake a stick at. The couple running it are an Anglo-Norwegian fellow and his Russian wife--she a microbiologist (or some such) by background, now serving borsht to wondering Scots.
