Tanja and I spent a few days in Berlin and we also visited the guys at BerlinBottle.
Was very interesting talking to them as they are mainly experts with vodka.
As MD 5 was still at 49,99 we bought two more bottles. He asked if we are collectors or drinkers. I told him we love undamaged boxes.
And at this point it became more even more interesting as the guy who is packing the parcels listened to us.
He said he has no problem in packing extra safe and bottles separate from boxes with extra foil wrap!
But they need to know whether you are a drinker or a collector.
As it is not possible for all delieveries (collectors are less than 1% of the total orders).
If you order at them they would be happy if you drop them a line within the process that these bottles are for collecting,
then they will look for the best bottles and boxes available. Just let them know!
They also had a bunch of MD5 Bottles where the boxes were already scratched and damaged out of the distillery carton.
So they put these away and first sold the good ones.
Unfortunately the 49,99 where just temporary, now they're back at 130.-€ .
