Snap, I thought the same thing. You definitely pay a lot more for empty jars than full jars here so buy them full and recycle.

Re: Where to buy glass bottles for milk like this?

Some village dairies sell milk in glass bottles - with a deposit to encourage return of the empty ..... however, I don't think that they're as 'poncy' as the one in the linked photo in the OP.

Otherwise Landi sell flip-top resealable (Grolsch style) empty glass bottles.

I think we have ~15 empty similar jars from tomato sauce in our glass recycling bin, if you are interested I could mail them to you before we throw them out. I don't know if it's worth the hassle, just a thought in case you need some bottles soon.

Re: Where to buy glass bottles for milk like this?

Look in the home canning section at the grocery or home/department stores - you will find several brands of bottles like these.

Landi carries canning supplies all year round, including unusual sized jars and bottles. The larger Coop and Migros stores do as well, the smaller ones only during canning season - that is, mid summer through autumn. Manor has a small selection year round, much expanded during canning season.

Landi tend to have the best prices.

If you want a screw-top (including vacuum seal) bottle, look for Quattro Stagione or the Landi's own brand, if you want a traditional bottle with sealing rings look for Weck or the Landi brand (these also have plastic top for use after opening), flip top bottle look for Kilner, as well as other smaller brands.

If you have a LANDI near you, they have lots of different glass bottles, with special air-tight lids. That's what we use for our fresh milk.
