At the end of a long day, nothing is more tiring than hoisting that heavy bottle of hooch, removing the cap and pouring the contents into a glass. I mean what are we, a bunch of sommeliers? If I wanted to pour things I'd tend bar for a living. No, what we need is booze on tap; there's got to be a better way than this bottle nonsense.
Well, now there is! A rash of folks on Etsy have been making these liquor dispensers:
The common design flaw with each is that the spigots ought be higher, and there should be a padded surface beneath on which you could rest the back of your head.
If you'd like to make your own, here's an Instructable. But beware that you may have an issue if you don't like the taste of rubber. As one Instructables member who built this one writes,
"Has anyone else had any problems with the alcohol deteriorating the rubber seals in the spigot? After sitting for a few days, the liquid came out black (not because it was full of Jim Beam Black)."
That issue aside, what I really want to know is how you first load the bottle into the dispenser without dumping booze everywhere. Is it like when you change the water cooler bottle at the office, where the first few splashes are essentially the Angel's Share?
