Glass Beverage Bottles

SKS offers a wide range of glass beverage bottles, paired with or without tamper evident cap options. Clear glass bottles with gold lug caps could be ideal for packaging fresh pressed juice or cold brew coffee. The gold metal caps include a plastisol liner, which adds a tamper evident feature by forming a hermetic seal that breaks when the juice bottle is first opened.Top Benefits of Glass:

Packaging Tip

Cap Codes

To assist in finding matching cap options for each of our containers, SKS created cap codes. These alphanumeric codes are unique to each of our cap, sprayer, dropper, and lotion pump sizes and are designed to correlate with the neck finishes of our bulk bottles and jars. Simply view the cap code listed for the desired bulk container, then search for the same code using our Cap Code Chart to determine which cap options fit.

Clear Glass Liquor Bottles

1 liter clear glass liquor bottles are ideal for packaging spirits, like tequila, whiskey, bourbon, and more. These tall, glass spirit bottles feature a large labeling area for custom branding. The long slender neck assists with pouring smaller amounts at a time and features a tamper evident ring. When paired with black tamper evident caps, the frangible ring along the cap skirt snaps off against the tequila bottle neck after opening for the first time.
