Well... As surmised above... they are a big order only company.
I got this email this morning...
Kevin, thank you for your interest in CCL and the aluminum bottle. Our current capacity in North America is serving our core customer base. We do not sell in quantities less than a full truck, and our minimum order requirements is 120,000 bottles. You might want to contact Elemental Containers, they may sell smaller quantities. Thanks

So it looks like 5000 case quantity is the minimum order.
(I did reply back and ask for a rough dollar quote for that minimum order, and I also inquired about misprints or similarly flawed production runs)
I have already visited the elemental container website.. it appears they work almost exclusively in screw top containers and not crown top bottles... so I doubt they will be any more open to a smaller purchases..
