A bottle for my baby !

Postby StevieM » Thu Mar 28, 2002 7:32 pm

This is my first posting so I hope someone can help me.

My son was born in October 2000. I would love to buy a bottle that has some significance to that month. Failing that have a bottle labelled or marked for his birth. I then want to lay it away to present to him on his 18th birthday.

Any suggestions?

I would wait 18 years and then buy 18 years old whisky. In the bottle whisky won't get any older or more taste ... and in that 18 years (due to overproduction) the bottle bought to today won't even gain much more value. But these are only my opinions.

Kippis,

Back in April '97 when my son was born a friend boxed up an 18yr old (I think), single cask bottle, which I believe has been bottled that week. Even I do not know what it is because it has been carefully sealed.
I have put it away in a box with other stuff that was "of the time". With it being a single cask bottle, the price should go up as well, so if he can't drink it, he should be able to sell it.
FWIW in his "box for when he's 18" are:
- Promo items from the latest films
- All the newspapers and TV mag from the day of his birth
- The "in" toys (tamagotchi etc)
- first pair of shoes
- No.1 Music single/album
plus other stuff.

The only thing I didn't get was the "Now thats what I call music..." CD that was out at the time.

Good luck.
