WhiskeyBottleTHE days of taking a quick swig from Dad’s whiskey bottle may soon be a thing of the past.

Drinks company Johnnie Walker have previewed their ‘smart bottle’ – designed to foil sneaky drinkers – at the Mobile World Congress forum in Barcelona.

The bottle uses thin, printed sensor tags that can detect whether the bottle is sealed or open.

When opened it sends an update to the owners smartphone.

Other drinks companies including Smirnoff, Crown Royal and Captain Morgan are now set to follow suit and introduce their own versions of the smart bottle.
