Default Neat Bottles for Mead or Cider

Found these bottles in my Kroger's. In the Mexican Food Aisle. Sangria Soda. Neat shape to the bottle and they are pop tops. 330 ml

They are frequently on sale for $0.65 each.

They are nice! I like that long slender shape and neck.

These are awesome I have been paying close to a dollar (after shipping) for bottles that are not quite as cool, but a little larger. I might have to go deplete all the krogers in the area of these haha

Indeed, those are some pretty bottles. I would definitely love to have some kind of nice bottle like that for my cider.

You can get them by the case at Costco Business Center for about $13.00.

My son likes the soda. My daughter is not to crazy about it. I have had a few and they are not bad. Would describe it as a dark cherry flavor.

Grocery Outlet is a good place also. I get these bottles for under a $1 sometimes even
$0.79 I like the twist cap, but they also will do cork really well. They are extremely heavy glass I like the thickness to them. They also come in green, Dark Green, and clear. I boil them and remove the labels then sanitize them before use. Martinelli's 750ml they always go on sale.
