I'm with those who say if you use it fast enough it will probably be OK. I know a lot of people don't like plastic, but I have to tote groceries from garage or street to home, and usually opt for products in plastic over glass, all other things being the same.

I use a glass bottle shaped like a naked lady, with a chromed, cork-based, self-closing liquor pourer spout.
Porcelain topped bottles are handy to have around. I have several old Grolsch bottles.
I am forever losing lids to bottles, and the porcelain can be opened with one hand and stay with the bottle. I would think they would be available at brewing stores. I bought new rubber seals a few years ago from a home brew store.

Sounds like a great idea, except maybe not for EVOO. I find that oils and fats dissolve rubber.

I recommend a stopper or pourer with cork. I keep the plastic topped corks from liqueur bottles for such use.

The seals are actually on the outside of the bottle. I doubt that much of the liquid touches the rubber.

Once a year I get a gift package of some of the best olive oil from a single farm in Tuscany. It is not available here, but what I get is sent in glass bottles with porcelain tops. I think that is the way it is sold in Tuscany.

I posted pictures a while back of the harvest and the bottles.

Yeah, I bought a fairly cheap brand....Oliveri or something like that. It's in a plastic bottle. When I get home i'll put it in a different bottle if I can finally get the stupid wrap off of the bottle. Thanks for the advice guys.

Ooh, sounds lovely. I read the results and opinions of an EVOO tasting. The conclusion was to buy stuff from small companies/farms and stay away from "name brands".

The original thread

Story of EVOO

This is a small farm, and the product is sold only locally.
