700ml bottle suppliers

Recommended Posts

We are seeking glass suppliers for 700ml bottles for export. Would like to be able to purchase in pallets rather than containers. Curious who others are using.

Thanks,

Todd

Hey Todd,

We are placing an order for these with a European supplier and hope to have stock in the next two months. Please let me know what style you have in mind? We will be stocking these in Richmond, VA.

Cheers,

Shawn

Thanks Shawn. We are awaiting proper tenders before we will know exact sizes. It seems they may go down to 500ml. I'll check in when we are sure.

We may be able to help you. With a custom bottle, you can differentiate your brand on shelf by having a unique bottle shape and embossing a logo, name, or design into the glass. Please contact me for your glass bottle requirements. A typical 750ml super flint glass bottle costs about $1.25 DDU via ocean freight to a USA location.

We can make a custom 700ml and 500ml mold for only $1500. At no extra cost, we can emboss your company logo, name, or design into the glass. Made in China. Call me at 561.818.8977 to discuss the details.

How do I get prices on some of the bottles that are pictured on your website?

I can seriously recommend don't buy glass from China unless you specifically know the factory and the factory is owned and/or run by westerners. You will be sorry. You will receive excellent pricing, a "golden sample", and then you will be sorry. Very sorry.

700 ml is not an authorized size. The authorized sizes are:

§5.47a Metric standards of fill (distilled spirits bottled after December 31, 1979).
(a) Authorized standards of fill. The standards of fill for distilled spirits are the following:

(1) For containers other than cans described in paragraph (a)(2), of this section—

1.75 liters

1.00 liter

750 milliliters

500 milliliters (Authorized for bottling until June 30, 1989)

375 milliliters

200 milliliters

100 milliliters

50 milliliters

(2) For metal containers which have the general shape and design of a can, which have a closure which is an integral part of the container, and which cannot be readily reclosed after opening—

355 milliliters

200 milliliters

100 milliliters

50 milliliters

If you find spirits in 700 ml bottles, say Cutty Sark Scotch, it is likely a gray market or counterfeit product (there is difference) entered into commerce outside of the channels generally occupied by the sole authorized US agent and taking advantage of price differences in say an FTZ in Cypress and the importers price in the US. Anyway, you don't want 700 ML (or 70 CL bottles) on goods you want to market here.

Todd clearly stated this was for export.

We are starting to export to Europe. One big saver we did was to use a full bottle shrink sleeve.

We are using the same 750ml bottle same label (changing 750ml to 700ml) .

Then all we are doing is "short" filling the bottles to 700ml.

Man o man what a money saver!!!

I'd check to make sure that the 750 ml bottles for 700 ml labels, when filled, meet the headspace requirements of the country to which you are exporting. The last thing you want is to have a pallet you've shipped to Tuva for the throat singing festival rejected at the border because you've got too much headspace in the bottle. TTB can help with this. Contact the International Affairs Division by phone at (202) 453-2260, or by email at exportcertificates@ttb.gov and ask them whether Tuva has headspace regulations. They are there to help.

Do such regulations exist. Yup. We've got them right here in the USA. Although part 5 does not apply to products bottled for export (I missed the fact that the 700 ml bottles were meant for export when I first responded to this thread and got my comeuppance from 3dOg), the US has regulations on headspace:

§ 5.46 Standard liquor bottles.
(a) General. A standard liquor bottle shall be one so made and formed, and so filled, as not to mislead the purchaser. An individual carton or other container of a bottle shall not be so designed as to mislead purchasers as to the size of the bottles.
(b ) Headspace. A liquor bottle of a capacity of 200 milliliters or more shall be held to be so filled as to mislead the purchaser if it has a headspace in excess of 8 percent of the total capacity of the bottle after closure.

(c ) Design. A liquor bottle shall be held (irrespective of the correctness of the stated net contents) to be so made and formed as to mislead the purchaser, if its actual capacity is substantially less than the capacity it appears to have upon visual examination under ordinary conditions of purchase or use.

I'm not saying that Tuva has such standards, but it might. I'm not saying Tuva would enforce the standards if it had them. But it might. I do know that some countries can be tough on imports,so it would be nice to know going in the comeuppance you might be inviting. As the saying goes, "just sayin'..."

8% of 750ml is 60ml, so by TTB's headspace standards at least, a 700ml fill would fly. Excellent point in checking though.

Yes, because the US standard is 8%, but the Tuva standard could be different. I'll make a general statement. If you are going to export to any other country, ask TTB what that country requires.

Excellent points, all around.

Thanks for everyone's input! Our export has been put on hold, but these are definitely points to check out.

Todd,

We can produce a custom 700ml or 500ml bottle for you. MOQ is 10,000 bottles. One time mold cost is about $2500 and the piece price is about $1.50 delivered to a USA address. Call me at 561.818.8977 to discuss.

When you are ready again, Pavisa entered a technology and marketing agreement this year with Allied Glass in the UK.  Since the market they serve has 700ml as standard they have an extensive stock line offering at www.allied-glass.com.

Shipping in full containers would be great, but if you know what you want and how many and we can plan for it, we will just make sure we have what you need in a container with a mix of other items we plan to bring and store in the US to help balance out the Pavisa Glass stock line.

We plan to store the glass at up to 3 locations using our recent partnership with the premium decorator Quest Industries to help us service the craft market through their decorating plants in Kentucky and California, but a Pavisa facility in New England.

Call when ready.
