Lucidi Distilling Co Posted November 20, 2014 Share Posted November 20, 2014 While it would be ideal for me, both from a marketing angle and financially speaking, I would prefer to have a custom bottle made per my design. I don't mind the minimum quantity of 50,000 bottles either from a cost perspective, but I do have a lack of storage space at this time. I assume that is about 2.5 shipping containers for what I have been quoted. So on to my point: I have been shopping 4 different bottle suppliers in the 750mL range only, and all of the pricing has been fairly the same, with obvious differences in shipping and freight based on where they are shipping from and where I am located. ALL of them have been acceptable ranges of customer service, and all of them have sent me samples. What was odd to me at first was a visual difference in sizing when they were all lined up (same general design). I then noticed that some had a much thicker glass bottom than the others, and decided to test the volume they could hold (bottle names of suppliers eliminated - not trying to flame anyone here): Bottle #1 - 787mL (to the brim) Bottle #2 - 791mL (to the brim) Bottle #3 - 789mL (to the brim) Bottle #4 - 818mL (to the brim) Obviously I need space for a cork (bartop configuration). What I fear is the lack of consistency. I am not concerned with my filler being wildly off, but I do feel like this will change my label design, insofar that I'm now thinking of covering the neck of the bottle with an additional label to hide any inconsistencies from bottle to bottle. Has anyone else had these concerns? On average for you "bottle experts" out there, what is an acceptable amount of differences in either a "%" or a "range" from bottle to bottle? Thanks.
