    Blade Runner Johnny walker whisky bottle on display. I've used real whisky in the past but that works out expensive and I get terribly * every time I move house and have to pack it up for shipping.

    Any suggestions for a liquid that'll replicate the look and not spoil/go off?

    vodka - you can get it super cheaper than whiskey....and just stir in some coffee grounds and filter and BABOOM! Whiskey color....

    I refer you to the movie Mr. Roberts.

    Mr. Roberts (Henry Fonda), Ensign Pulver (Jack Lemmon) and the Doc (William Powell) make a bottle of fake Johnny Walker Black.

    I've always used plain brewed tea to simulate whiskey - but I can't guarantee the "shelf life".

    Perhaps a tiny bit of bleach in the mix will prevent anything growing.

    I think it's a matter of not wanting slimy mold or algae growing in the bottle, which could be a major pain to clean/remove.

    The vodka option would probably work the best with no spoilage.

    Cheers all. I used cheap whiskey in the end! I wanted to avoid mould more than anything. :)

    If its for long term display I suppose you could pour in a properly tinted acrylic resin no? It would then be permanent, but w/out mold concerns or need for repeat fillings. Just a thought.
