Do you collect Miniature Liqueur or mini Bottles of Liqueur? I started collecting miniature liqueur bottles in the late 1980's. I stopped after I retired from FDA in 2002. So I only have a small collection, but I enjoyed looking at them every now and then.
A miniature is a small bottle of a spirit, liqueur or other alcoholic beverage. Their contents, typically 50ml, are intended to comprise an individual serving.
Miniatures may be used as gifts, samples, or for promotional purposes. In the Northeastern United States they are known as "Nips", and referred to elsewhere as "airplane bottles". They are sometimes available in hotel mini-bars, on trains and planes, and in other circumstances where serving from a full size bottle is impractical or uneconomical.
These mini bottles are sometimes sold in sets, allowing the comparative tasting of different types of beverage. They are also sold in gift sets with a corresponding drinking glass. Miniatures are collected by some people, and I am one of them. I have only a small collection numbering only about 70 bottles.
Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you!
