We use glass flask bottles to infuse liquors and to store and make homemade salad dressing. Since both of those tasks involve shaking the flasks to mix ingredients, you need a bottle with a top that stays sealed and sturdy glass. These are the ones that have worked for us.

Glass Bottles for Infusions
These 8.5 ounce (250ml) are the flasks we’ve used for all our infusions on this site. Pictured here is our Jolly Rancher Vodka Infusion. We infused it in these bottles and also served it in them.
They have a cork top with a rubber hermetic seal that expands to keep the liquid in and the air out. Despite how tightly they close, opening them is easy with the metal swing top.
You can also use these for making and storing homemade salad dressing, fermenting kafir and kombucha, homebrewing and more. They’re about the same size as the smaller traditional store bought dressings.
You can put labels on the front (we’re partial to these erasable chalkboard labels). This is great for knowing exactly what’s in each bottle, and you can also date them so you’ll know when they’ve reached the end of their shelf life.
These also make nice host/hostess and house warming gifts. If you need to buy them in bulk, definitely check out the deal on Home Depot where you can buy them by the dozen.
These require hand-washing, but are very easy to clean. They also have no problem being put into the freezer to chill an infusion.
These beautiful 34 ounce (1000ml) bottles are reminiscent of old fashioned soda bottles. This set of six are specially designed for fermentation, and come with three extra stoppers and a collapsible silicon funnel.They are BPA and lead free. The stainless steel closures won’t rust in the dishwasher and the tops close so well that you might occasionally find them a little hard to open.
But that’s a good thing, especially when you’re fermenting. And one of the most popular uses for these bottles is brewing kombucha.
They are dishwasher safe, but some users prefer to clean them by hand and report they are very easy to clean either way.
These are also great for storing home brewed beer. They are dishwasher safe.
These 11 ounce (325ml) novelty glasses work much better than you might think from looking at them. They look exactly like big light bulbs, and that makes them so cool.
But even cooler is that under the cap is a rubber plug that makes this bottle very secure against leaking. If you remove the plug, you can stick a straw down through the metal lid for drinking.
With the plug, it’s a bottle you can shake as much as you want to mix up infusions or salad dressings without worrying about leaks. You can choose between a silver or gold lid, whichever you prefer.
Note that it’s not to be used with liquids over 176 degrees F.
These very sturdy16 ounce (500ml) bottles have a beautifully styled indentation in the middle that makes them grab your attention. They look fantastic on your bar or in your fridge.
The shape acts as a no slip grip, making them easier to hold. This is especially helpful if you have smaller hands.
The thick rubber gasket allows for a complete seal, ensuring the contents will stay fresh as long as possible.
They make ideal bottles for brewing and storing home-brewed beer, kombucha and ginger beer. The tight swing tops help the fermentation process and keep the contents fresh-tasting.
The description doesn’t say they are dishwasher safe, but they are easy to clean with a bottle brush.
These tall, elegant 1 liter bottles are perfect for infusing infusing a whole bottle of vodka or rum. It’s also great for making agua fresca, or infused water.

They’re also great for storing household cleaners and laundry products when you don’t have the room for the big bulky containers they come in.
