One of the most successful spirits and most recognizable names is, of course, Jack Daniel’s. In celebration of his 160th birthday, the famous Tennessee distillery has released a special limited edition black bottle. One thing that has got me confused, is that, according to Jack Daniel’s (the man) Wikipedia page, he was born on September 5, 1846. Based on this, Jack would have just celebrated his 164th birthday. Now, the 160 could not possibly be in reference to the founding of the brand, since Jack Daniel’s (the brand) wasn’t founded until 1875.
So are all of the blogs (Cool Material, Notcot, Vodka & Co.) that are posting about the special 160th Birthday Bottle four years too late? Or, is the brand just using the 160 because it’s a nice round number?
On closer inspection, the Jack Daniels website posts that no one really knows exactly when Jack was born:
“No one really knows exactly when Jack Daniel was born. A town fire destroyed the courthouse records, and conflicting dates on Mr. Jack’s and his mother’s headstones have left his date of birth in question. It’s customary to celebrate Mr. Jack’s birthday in September – so he gets a whole month. But for a man as unique as Jack Daniel, one day just wouldn’t seem proper, anyway.”
So there you go, there should be an asterisk next to Jack’s birthday on Wikipedia.
As for the limited edition 750ml bottle, it’s sexy as hell. Jack would be proud.
Design firm Pearlfisher was tasked with the job of redesigning the brand identity of Swedish urban smoothie brand Froosh “to solve the ’smoothie confusion’ in the Nordic regions and communicate pure fruit health benefits.” I think that the new look is far improved from the current look and feel (see below for the current bottle packaging design). The old look was a bit childish and ambiguous. The new branding features bold colors with a modern and sophisticated look. Whereas the old look gave off a childlike vibe, the new design grabs at the health conscious adult.
The only negative is that you need to live in one of the Nordic regions that carry Froosh in order to have a taste of this seemingly refreshing and healthy drink.
And for comparison purposes, you’ll find a photo of the current Froosh bottle branding below.
Max Pictures has been doing an excellent job of creating Dharma labels for anything and everything you could imagine. These are perfect for you to use at your LOST finale party! Here I feature all of the drink related labels, including ones for vodka, soda, beer, and wine. All of these labels and a ton more are available for download as PDF’s at Max Pictures for free.
Most of us know that water is good for us. But that good can sometimes be canceled out when using the wrong container to hold it in. With the growing concern over bisphenol-a, or BPA in plastic bottles many people have been looking for alternatives to hold their favorite drink. In comes the Tap Water Bottle. Sure, it’s nothing more than a glass bottle, but it is safe for you and functional at the same time. The flip cap makes loosing or dropping caps a thing of the past.
“It’s always best to store water in glass containers. Water is the universal solvent. It dissolves some part of everything it contacts. When water is stored in plastic containers, it takes on some of the chemicals the plastic is made from. Water stored in glass containers tastes better and looks better. Glass is better for you, and better for our planet. You can see what you’re drinking. …and the flip cap provides a superior seal that won’t get lost.”
Buy the Tap Water Bottle from Tap Water Bottle for $10.
Brew Nerds Coffee is small independent coffee shop (aren’t those the best kind) based out of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. They’ve got just two locations but despite this they have been the talk of the town because of their nerdy (and very cool) paper cups and coffee packaging. And in case you were wondering, the packaging was designed by American based design firm, Mitre Agency.
“At Brew Nerds, you can order coffee in 340ml, 450ml and 570ml sizes. The thermal protection device is free. So is the sucrose – or E955, if you prefer.”
If you’ve tried the coffee from Brew Nerds let us know what you thought of it!

So these disposable cups have been making the blog rounds and I thought they were definitely worth a mention here at Call Me Thirsty. I absolutely adore these. They make me want to fly from Hawaii to Brooklyn just so I could order a drink from Brooklyn Fare in one of these splendid cups.
“We started Brooklyn Fare with three simple things in mind:
Good foods at great prices offered up with outstanding service.
Our goal is to be a centerpiece of the Brooklyn community. A place to hangout with the Sunday paper, a cappuccino and a freshly baked croissant. A place to learn clever cooking techniques from some of New York’s best chefs. A place you and your family will come back to again and again for gourmet groceries, delicious prepared meals and more.
We offer the sort of service that’ll make you smile, which will make us smile. Which will probably make you smile even more. It’s a vicious cycle.
We are on the corner of Hoyt and Schermerhorn, just across the street from an A,C,G stop and just a short walk from Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Carroll Gardens and Brooklyn Heights. So no matter what corner you live on, we hope you’ll visit ours.”
