Bottles for limoncello

So, this is a long shot, but...

I'm making limoncello for gifts this year, and I'm looking for bottles to put it in. I found some glass bottles with rubber stoppers (important, since some will be shipped) at the Container Store, but they're a bit pricey. Any suggestions?

  1. I have some vague memory that Costco sells empty bottles. Check their website for confirmation.

    1. Check out IKEA... pretty sure they would have something.


      1. Michael's Crafts. Several locations in the area.

        I've got a couple liters of lemon peels steeping too ... so I'll be on my way to Michaels soon.

        1. Perhaps World Market may have what you're looking for? I made some limoncello a few years back and found some good cheap bottles there with the classic "Grolsch" style flip caps.

            And the economical solution is to buy Grolsch beer in the classic bottles, drink the beer, and use the bottles for the limoncello.

              Another idea is to buy pretty bottles and decorate with cool stickers (vintage ones, etc.)
              they have a HUGE selection of GREAT ones at Michaels/AC Moore's...

                oh, ciahound, do you need any help to "buy Grolsch beer in the classic bottles...and drink the beer"?

                  It's been 30 years or so since I did this. These days I'm better at emptying wine or scotch bottles. Still don't need any help.
