"In September, Johnnie Walker Black Label will release a special collector's edition bottle (right) honoring the famed Scotch's 100th anniversary. Celebrating the brand's enduring achievements in blending, innovation, and quality, the limited edition black glass bottle contains the signature 12-year-old whisky and will retail for $50.Black Label is blended in the same style as it has been in Scotland since 1909 when founder John Walker's grandsons, George and Alexander II, officially named their signature blend Black Label. The collector's bottle also serves as a unique medium to tell the story of Black Label's rich history with a historic timeline featured on its back, charting the rise of the world famous Scotch. Alexander was the one who decided to package the firm's famed whisky in square bottles to reduce the amount of breakages during shipment, and to use slanting labels to allow larger typesetting." --

Strange comments....

If you have time to read some crazy comments...

Back on August 4, 2008 (last year!) we received our first shipment of Bieres 23 from France. Bieres 23 is brewpub in France that is owned by an Englishman that retired in France. People have loved the beers here and all seemed fine. More than a year later starting on August 19, 2009, people that are visiting the Bieres 23 brewpub in FRANCE have started posting on our blog. Sounds like a war between the English and the French, police, hospitals and bad overpiced fish and chips?

If you have time read the comments on this post ---
I am not sure why they are posting on a TWCP blog in St. Louis Missouri -- thousands of miles away!!
