Question: What are the red candle wax looking things on Alcohol bottles for!?
On certain bottles on Alcohol at some stores, the bottles have these red things on top, what are those things and what are they for!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

just a marketing gimmick

you mean on Makers Mark in particular!?

edit: the wine capsules are also marketing gimmicks; the minor amount of respiration through a cork is desirable for longer-lived wines, and irrelevant for those meant to be drunk today (the oxygen binds with tannins to precipitate them out as solids, ie, sediment; alcohol evaporation is of no concern -- other else ALL alcohol would have similar accoutrements! moreover, few spirits even have corksWww@FoodAQ@Com

It's for keeping the alcohol from evaporating through and around the cork!. Wine bottles have metal "capsules" crimped onto the top of them for the same purpose!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

just for style!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
