Ever seen a Grolsch beer bottle? It has a wire bail (bale?) that swings a ceramic stopper with a rubber gasket up onto the mouth of the bottle to seal it shut. There are small versions of these in various colors available in stores such as Pier One Imports. I have received samples in that type of bottle, the bottle being about the size of one of those airplane liquor bottles.

Nalgene makes Teflon bottles with leakproof caps, these ought to not affect the taste at all.

HDPE likewise but Teflon is better albeit more expensive.

Glass is however -- way out in front, just seal and pack well.

Only problem is that plastic containers will add taste to the sample - use clean new glass well packaged instead.

Try some small plastic water bottles, plastic flasks, or empty plastic "airplane" bottles.

Hey folks ---

I have a few new brands of absinthe that I would like to send samples of to a friend who lives in another part of the country. I'd like some tips on how I should send the actual liquor. Test tubes? Tupperware? This is the first time I've sent less than a full bottle, but I'm too greedy to part with my LaBleue. Thanks in advance!!!
