Looking for a retirement or promotion gift for someone that enjoys a nice bottle? If your friends are anything like ours, they have a favorite brand and want everyone to know about it! Here are just two versions of our Liquor Bottle Shadowbox and Displays. We can make these displays personalized to your own particular taste, so let us know how you’d like YOURS built.
Jack Daniels Marine Corps Shadowbox
We call this the Bottle Display Case as it can be used with the recipient’s drink of choice. Pictured is a bottle of Jack Daniels along with the Marine Corps themed Shadow Box.
As tradition often calls, Military service members extend their gratitude to their brothers and sisters by offering personalized gifts as the service member retires and/or moves to another unit. As these Marines were leaving their respective units, we were honored to be entrusted with presenting this shadow box.
This box measures 15 x 15 and 5-1/2 inches deep. The box was stained Red Mahogany. In the background you can see the blue and red NCO blood-stripe.
Centered is the Marine’s last name, stenciled on a piece of mitered Pine wood. On the left we inserted the unit logo, Recruiting Station New York. On the right side you notice a small personal message displayed. This is a personalized message from the Marine’s peers. In the center of the box you will notice a bottle of the Marine’s drink of choice, in this case, a liter of Jack Daniels on its side, and in front two shot-glasses. The shot-glasses are placed inside of two placeholders mitered out of solid wood.
As you can see on the picture above, the box has been fitted with brass hinges and hasp. The box can be opened so that the recipient can have access to the drink of course.
The box is closed behind plexiglass to keep dust out. We use plexiglass as it’s 20 times stronger than glass and lighter.
This shadow-box be placed on a level surface or hung on a wall.
“In Case of Emergency Break Glass” Liquor Bottle Display Box
We’ve made an “In Case of Emergency, Break Glass” liquor box. Lets just hope it doesn’t come down to that!
Inside the box you will find a bottle of cognac, along with a drinking glass, all held in place to prevent sliding or breaking.
We’ve added the recipient’s rank, a wooden name plaque, and a service emblem. We’ve then closed the box in an oak frame, all stained in red mahogany.
The front is encased in plexiglass, and we’ve added a decal that says “In case of Emergency Break Glass.” We then closed the box with two gold/brass screws. Lets hope that if they ever need to pull out the bottle and glass, they will unscrew it open instead of breaking the glass 😉
We don’t have a liquor license so it goes without saying, liquor bottles are not included =)
