The Best Empty Bottle: Jim Beam’s Vintage Decanters

Vintage Jim Beam Decanters

While any drinker would love a full bottle of whiskey for Christmas, true cocktail enthusiasts will be much more impressed by an empty one—as long as its one of Jim Beam’s vintage decanters. I confess, I didn’t know about these incredible bottles before I stumbled upon an incredible jackelope decanter after falling into an eBay black hole. But now that I know of them, I’m obsessed. Introduced in 1955, these collectibles come in a wild range of shapes like Volkswagen Beetles, antique phones—there’s even a train set decanter. Obviously, I am not the first to be enthralled by these ceramic wonders. There are lots of decanters up for auction on eBay (some sell for under $20 while others start at $500) and there’s even a club for the decanter-obsessed called the International Jim Beam Bottle & Specialty Club. They’re the greatest gift I know for the whiskey lover who doesn’t need any more whiskey, but could do with a really cool bottle.
