Not as good as the above images, breaking in my new 100mm f/2.8 L, recycling my St. Peters Organic Ale bottle. 5Dmark3 as well.

Love the lighting, colors, etc...One minor critique, the bottle isn't precisely vertical.  My eye caught that immediately. I dragged it to the edge of my monitor to verify it.   
Love the shots I see from the 100L.

You are right, thank you! also thanks for the trick of dragging the pic to the edge of the monitor to check if its straight, i didn't know that one

You asked for it - so,  here's my take  . . .

1.  why is the bottle still capped?  And what is that 3 little beads at the very top?

2.  The ice at the bottom of the bottle?  What is that?  I'm at a loss of how to describe the over-all effect.  Put it on a bucket!  If you have those ice all-around then shoot the product inside the cooler at least.

Here's what I would suggest: 
Open the bottle, tilt it a bit like it's leaning on the glass, take a tight shoot of the upper 1/3 of the product. 
Close down your aperture to get the bubbles and the neck-logo in focus.
Tone-down your lighting so it does not wash-out the logo. 
Take a shot of the mouth of the glass and you'll have a winning presentation.

 ;)

like dawgfanjeff said, the bottle is not entirely vertical. and perhaps you can lower the output of the flash a little bit, so the top logo is still readable.

for the rest, i like the picture, with the ice and stuff. makes me thirsty. good job!
cheers from holland ;)

The ice is a bit cheesy. . . Instead, try crushing some ice into a thick powder consistency and dip the bottle in it. . . get some on your hands and press it against the bottle. . . then create a drip and puddle scene at the base of the bottle (don't do this in warm room ;) ). And for pete's sake take off that little bit of ice on the bottle cap.

This is just for starters. . . ;)
