Five Silly-Looking Tequila Bottles
My friend bought it for me in Baja, at some gabacho tourist trap. Seeing it the other day reminded me that tequila, perhaps more than any other liquor, comes in all types of bottle shapes, from the stately (the long, sleek, amber-or-blue-hued Corralejo, the stout, square-shaped Herradura, the big, thick Freudian hard-on of a Cazadores) to the stupid. The above bottle is the latter category (although the tequila, surprisingly, wasn't bad, although of no name brand). After the jump, four more silly bottles. This post, by the way, makes no pretensions of judging the actual taste of the tequila--we just care about the bottles here, son! But if some of you have tried these tequilas, and they are ambrosia, do let us know in the comments and defend its honor.
Now, the rogues' gallery...

Never mind the fact that it's mezcal that traditionally features the worm at the bottom of the bottle.

Nothing too offensive about the bottle, other than its ugliness.
