Looking for glass bottles? Help please

  1. Crate & Barrel sells 1 liter sized bottles for $4 that work well for this. They also sell two smaller sizes (10oz and 16oz are my recollections). Here's the bigger sized one:

    We used to buy the bigger ones. Instead, we either recycle screw cap or cork wine/spirits bottles. Or get the Rieme sparkling grapefruit lemonade (or other flavors) at Capone's foods -- these bottles are 750 mL with the same tops as the Crate & Barrel ones for about $4 but you also get a tasty beverage.

      Thanks for the tip on the Reime s at capone foods...that sounds like a good idea.

    2. China Fair (Newton and Cambridge) has flip-top glass bottles in a variety of sizes.

        I forgot about China Fair...I will look there today.

      2. I got great glass bottles for homemade vanilla extract at http://www.specialtybottle.com/
        The bottles are cheap, but shipping will kill you.


        1. Thank you all so much for your help. Now I can make my Irish Cream!

          1. Sounds like you probably found some by now, but the Container Store carries a lot of hermetic clamp bottles, too. They have a store in Natick and one in Chestnut Hill.
