Of course, many Scotch lovers were excited about the capsules, but others made jokes about it because they look a hell of a lot like a Tide Pod.
On the one hand, who can turn away from a good Tide Pod joke? On the other, there are legitimately a bunch of instances where this kind of packaging would make sense. As noted by Alice Wong on Twitter, a capsule could be an easy, accessible solution for people who may have trouble opening bottles or pouring. Additionally, with The Glenlivet, the sustainability angle may be lost a bit, but this kind of packaging could be great in instances where reusable glasses aren't provided, like, say, an airplane.
