A Bevy of Bottles with Oversized Labels

I keep seeing bottles with oversized labels. The most common is Angostura Bitters, which was created that way by accident. (The full explanation is here.)

The other bitters with an oversized label (typically consumed as a digestif rather than in cocktails) in Underberg. 

Then there is Basil Hayden's bourbon, which has only a partially oversized label.

More recently, this line of wines was produced for Safeway grocery stores. The details on it are in the press release here.

And even more recently, I saw this aquavit, which may or may not come from the bar Aqua Vitae in Oslo, Norway.

Anyway, they're popping up everywhere these days.
