At Wares of Knutsford we have your presentation requirements covered, as experts in bottles and jars for preserves and cosmetics, liqueur bottles and even a smart packaging department to help you with your wrapping.
Flask style liqueur bottles
Among our massive range of bottles you’ll find some cute flask style bottles, which are great for liqueurs, schnapps and sloe gin. The traditional shape of a flask looks bang up to date in clear glass and these are some of our most popular bottles for liqueurs. Remember that buying in bulk offers economies of scale, so bigger packs wok out more economical, while our flat postage rate means you can order as much as you like without paying ny more for postage.
There are a couple of options in 200ml size. The original flask/liqueur bottle comes with black Bakelite screw caps and can be bought in packs of six, 18 and 36. It is made from high quality clear glass with pretty, gently curving sides.
Alternatively, you can choose the more modern looking, straight sided 200ml glass flask, with a choice of caps in black Bakelite, aluminium EPE lined, white unlined and black polyconed. This flask is also available in packs of six, 18 and 36.
Sloe gin liqueur bottles
This traditional style sloe gin bottle comes in 500ml size in clear glass with a ceramic swing top. It is sold singly. There is also a smaller, 250ml size Kilner clip top sloe gin bottle, printed with the brand’s logo.
Blackberry whisky liqueur recipe
This is a great winter warmer with a beautiful, rich colour showed off to perfection in a clear glass flask.
- 450g blackberries
- 675g sugar
- 2 teaspoons glycerine
- 2 cloves
- 1 cinnamon stick
Add the fruit, sugar and spices to a large glass jar then use a wooden spoon to squish them about a bit and mix the flavours together. Add the glycerine and fill the jar to the top with whisky. Seal the jar and leave in a cool, dark place to infuse, giving it a gentle shake occasionally. Two or three months later, strain the liquid and decant into flasks.
