N° 10 – The Bottle


MacGuffin Magazine celebrates its tenth jubilee by uncorking a miscellany of bottles that capture the zeitgeist. The menu for this festive issue includes a parade of down-market perfumes, messages squeezed into bottles, recipes for the perfect Molotov cocktail, the curated contents of celebrity fridges, the curious colours of centuries-old domestic bottles, the racism rife in the wine business, the salvation sought at AA sessions, and the many marvels awaiting you in the mini-bar.

Cheers!
