Im gonna use swing top bottles... like grolsch or fischer ones. Easy to get ahold of, relatively inexpensive (consider you will not have to cap/cork and will only have to change gaskets every ~5 uses)... and they are resealable. I don't know if many people will pound down 16oz of mead all at one sitting, but I can see 4-8oz. You can reseal the bottle, toss it in the fridge, and save it for another day.
On the pricey side are these cool flasks... a bit $$, but they would be AWESOME! The 500ml bottles are roughly ~17ounces
Anyways, I may get a couple of these to put labels on and save for a few years. It'll be like my private mead reserve that I can crack into 5yrs from now. The price does drop considerably if you get quantity. I'd be willing to split the 30ea for $105+sh and ship 15 of them out to you. That would be good for just under 2 gallons worth each.
