This is quite
unnecessary and can do nothing to improve the whisky, which does
not need to be turned upside down or shaken. It is quite erroneous
to think that the essential constituents settle at the bo~~t,tom. The
blended whisky is all one weight and is therefore the same at top or
bottom. The habit of cocktail shaking may be the reason why one
occasionally sees a bottle turned upside down.
