Default Help with odd bottle please.

Hi all.
I'm new to the forum.
Looking for some help on identifying a bottle that my sister found in a thrift store here in Canada. It's 500 ml swing top and modern design.
I would like to find a few more, full or empty to give as gifts full of my best brew.
Thanks in advance.
Cheers! Pete D.

Nice idea, however I would have a little worry as to the bottle's ability to stand up to the pressure of your beer. Probably??? fine if used as a growler, where a lot of initial pressure is relieved when it's filled, but for bottle carbing ??? It was designed for a non carbed drink so I would give it a second thought.

Thanks Bosco,
I wondered about the pressure. I gave the mystery to my grandson. He found the answer in less than 5 minutes. Damn kids and their internet savvy.
It seems it used to contain Latvian mead. It also seems that some of the meads are carbonated. I don't bottle condition, so I'm not too worried about it failing from pressure. But it seems unlikely that I will find any more. At least on this continent.
Cheers! Pete D.

Thanks iaefebs!

Also to the OP I found a link to a liquor store that sells and ships this bottle full of mead, don't know how good the site but if you look around you might find it. That is if you want it bad enough.

I'm so sorry Crispbrew. You must think I'm some kind of jerk, but I didn't notice your post from yesterday. You found the answer! Thanks. And it wasn't Latvian, it was Lithuanian.
Crap! Too many double IPAs. Time for bed.
Cheers all! Pete D.

Close enough... except for those who happen to be Latvians or Lithuanians, of course.
