Am a ways away from bottling, but if the mead turns out great , I would like to give some as gifts. With that in mind I would like to use some nice but different shapes than what I can find at my home brewing store.

I would like to use the following shaped bottle and looking for help in find a retailer for it.

Thanks all for reading this.

Nice bottles......

Looks like they won't be cheap and would likely only come from a specialist supplier or direct from maker.....who may or may not have a minimum order quantity.........

There's a bloke on ebay here who sells like that but I'd suspect those bottles would be £2 - £3 each......

Check the craft stores and decorating stores.

I've bought similar bottles from: Ruesday Morning, Ross, Michael's, and Hobby Lobby.

Yup, then bring a bottle to the homebrew store to find out what size corks will work with your bottle.
