I'm always on the lookout for bottles suitable for carrying Meths and I have a variety of sizes ranging from 30ml to 500ml some of which are spun alloy type while the rest are plastic. I also have a variety of different caps from plain screw caps to flip caps and even pull top sports bottle type. My current favourite is an Oval 300ml bottle. This is a liquid soap bottle and I'm pretty sure it was Carex, most bottles of this type are 250ml or 500ml but I specifically wanted a 300ml. It came with a pump dispenser but I found that a standard PET bottle cap fitted so I've used one from a 'Fruit Shoot' bottle, Blackcurrant flavour as I wanted the purple cap. I've used this on my last 2 trips and so far it has been fine. I find that the shape makes it easier to pack than a round bottle. These bottles come with a clear safety cap which can be clicked back on to help reduce the chance of the Pull Top being pulled up. I've started carrying a small measuring cup (25ml max) as I only need about 15ml for a cuppa and it makes it easier to measure the required amount. The bottle c/w 300ml weighs around 265g.
