Pretty sure there's a pallet minimum order.

I really like the Ceramic Bottles 3 and 4 on that page. Number 5 is ok, but I'd rather have either of the other two. Actually, I think the black ones would be much better.

Now, how do we go about ordering them, or convince a store to get a pallet of them in for us??

That's a good question. Now, if there are no more questions...

I was actually liking 1, but 3 would suit me very well also.

Depending on cost, I'd be good for a case or five of number three. I'd be looking to use them with my meads, so longer term storage is more important. Which is why I would rather have the cork option. Plus, I have a new corker that I'm itching to use.

If you have the space and willingness to resell that's the guy to email. I have the willingness to resell but I don't have the space.

Other than that you can just ask major homebrew stores to do it. I doubt any will bite though. I suspect that the Vinny bottles were picked up by Brewer Supply Group or LD Carlson and that's the only reason homebrew retailers are carrying them. I bet very few homebrew stores order directly from any vendors.

I like the looks of #2 better, but the capacity is only 500ml.

#3 is still my choice. If that's not available, I'm not buying. Since it's a 750ml bottle, you only get 77 cases per pallet. So less cases to sell to clear them. Now, IF they'll mix up pallet loads so that we can get two (or three) different versions, that could be good. I might give a case of the #1 a shot, if it came down to that. But I'd still rather get a couple (or more) cases of the #3 bottles.

No mix and match. That was my first question.
I could settle on Number one with the 750 ML capacity. I want something that uses EZ-top and/or a normal cap.

Guess I'll have to see about getting them elsewhere then. I'm looking to use them for mead and such. So they need to hold up for several years. I don't think the gaskets will do that.
