Another take on the prompt
The bar display surprised Dom. Miniatures crystals around each large bottle.
He inquired about it from the bar man and was told that these were (MIOs) Molecular Imprinted Oinos ~ chemical photocopies of wines/ spirits displayed in the larger bottles.

BM: Try a paper-chew of the same on house …….
