  • John Sullivan runs a website devoted to miniature bottles (  His main passion is vodkas but he has several pages of pre-pro whiskies (click here to jump to page 1).  Here you'll find many familiar names and colorful labels.  He also has  a collection of mini whiskey jugs (click here).  Even if a strictly "glass-only" collector, these pages may be useful for helping track down the origins of a glass in your collection.
