Source of Sample bottles in Canada

Anyone have an online or mail order source for sample bottles. Victor provided me with a link for SKS boston rounds with phenolic caps in the USA but they want $60. shipping charges on a $50. order. Their price per bottle is quite good but I was hoping to find a supplier in Canada that would charge less for freight. I am looking for 2oz, 4 oz and maybe 8 oz bottles to share samples as well as decant the bottom parts of open bottles. Any help appreciated Jonesz

@Jonesz our group gets sample bottles from consolidated bottle in toronto - www.consbottle.com. not sure what their shipping rates are, we usually just pick up in store. if you do order, make sure you get polyseal caps....

Are they glass or plastic? What kind of caps do they use? How much so they charge? I found the cons. Bottle company expensive.

@Nozinan consolidated bottle is more expensive than specialty bottle (www.specialtybottle.com), which is where i placed my first couple orders, but i like the fact that i don't have to pay for shipping or worry about duty charges. considering consolidated bottle is in a west end neighbourhood, not far from where i grew up, i will choose them every time. i'm more than happy to pay a premium to support the local guy, especially these days when there aren't many local guys left.....

They are plastic brown dispensing bottles with screw caps. I have a pharmacy friend who gets samples. Two oz is a good pour, I haven't had it impart any flavor to the whisky but then again it doesn't stay in the bottle long.:-)

@JoeVelo Thanx for this. Was able to find 4oz & 8 oz bottles exactly like I want on their site at: uline.ca/BL_8178/… Could not see 2 oz size but am contacting them to see if they will supply those as well. Jonesz
