Pickling for perpetual preservation

PhoenixCo is (more or less) proud to announce its most recent development: the Cask-et.

What better way to show you care than to preserve Aunt Dotty in cognac? Got a 'Jim Beam' lover in the clan? We can do that. Did Boris love vodka? Not a problem.

With our "leak-proof"* interment enclosures and your choice of liquor**, your loved one can spend eternity in style.

*As far as you know
**Carbonated/fermenting beverages strongly discouraged and are prohibited in earthquake zones.

       "Your grand-father looks so well-preserved."
"Actually, that's my husband. The pickling process added a few wrinkles."

       Hmm... one instance where accidentally being buried alive might actually be fun..

       Salt or salt substitute?

       Do you do flambe cremations, too? One croissant in cognac to you.

       Yes, but no drinks with the word 'sex' in the name.   

       n.b. We're not so tasteful that we won't do 'Fuzzy Navels'.

       Well, it worked for Admiral the Lord Horatio Nelson, so it must be Ok - but i think that makes it Pickled rather than Baked ...... Croissant (in armagnac, of course)

       Mmmmmm...to be preserved within the depths of liquor would be sweet, however it would require a large enough vessel to incorporate several attractive teenage girls, a lifetime of tobacco, and an small army assortment of rifles and ammunition. One must indulge all his vices in his afterlife.

       What, no salty/fat filled snack foods?
