This is my collection of mini-bottles (microbottles, miniatures or small bottles). Vodka, liqueur, cognac, tequila, beer, gin and other, but only 0,05 l = 50 g = 50 ml = 5 cl = 1/10 pint (also 40 ml, 30 ml, 20 ml, etc.). My hobby has no name, but at the end of December, 2005 colleagues - collectors at the specialized forum have decided to name this hobby simply —алкоминималистика (alcominimalistic).
Now I have 2064 mini-bottles. But some mini-bottles of one firm are very similar — have only differences in the label or a fuse of other color. How to count them?
Mini-bottles are from the different countries: Australia, France, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, England, Scotland, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Germany, Italy, San Marino, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Israel, Congo, Uganda, Jordan, the USA, Chilie, Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, Bermudas, Bahamas, Jamaica, Thailand, Vietnam, Hungary, Czechoslovakia (and Czech Republic), Poland, Yugoslavia, China, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia. Russia (including Adygea, Tatarstan and Kabardino-Balkariya), the USSR (Moldova, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, Armenia - and after disintegration of the USSR too).
Earlier the list of all mini-bottles was in one file, but since March, 2003 there are different web-pages: beer, vodka, kazenka, rakia, tequila, whisky, brandy, martini, vermouth, gin, rum,cognac and armagnac, liqueur, balsam, vine. Colleagues - collectors can go to Exchange, where I have arranged mini-bottles which I can change.
