New (empty) whisky bottles

Postby hearts151 » Thu Jul 23, 2009 2:09 pm

Was wondering if anyone knew where to buy empty whisky bottles. Been thinking about trying to blend some whisky that i've got to see if anything good. And also with recent chat about maybe transfering whisky into smaller containers so that it can keep that bit longer when its levels start getting low.
Bought a 20cl straight from barrel whisky from cadenhead whiskies earlier and I asked him about it and he kindly gave me an empty 35cl and 20cl bottles, but just wondering if anyone knows of a shop or website which I could maybe buy more.
Thanks
Ryan

I usually try to keep a few emptied bottles on hand for this sort of thing.

If you don't mind a screw cap you could always buy the cheapest liquor at hand and pour it out. I can regularly find specials on bottom shelf vodka or other miscellany for less than $5. Shipping alone would cost that much if you were to order something online.

You could even use one of these other bottles as a temporary fix until you empty a proper whisky bottle.

Well i now have 4x20cl (only 1 empty though) and one 35cl (empty) so i guess [2 or 3 more 20cl] and [3 or 4 35cl] would be perfect.

Cheers

With it being an american website I just went through the process of ordering and put in UK etc and it hasn't charged me any shipping! Surely can't be right!?! lol. If it is then thanks very much could be exactly what I'm looking for.
