Why is the bottle square?

During prohibition, we believe our bottles were designed to be square so that American salesmen could conceal a bottle or two in their briefcases without them rolling and rattling around should the inspectors come calling.

The distinct, unusual shape of our iconic Finest bottle is still being used today, but you shouldn’t have to hide it in your briefcase anymore!
