I am looking to add a new container to my collection and am looking for an amber straight sided tumbler somewhere around 10-12 oz by volume. CS has one that I really like, but the reviews are horrible. (https://www.candlescience.com/containers/straight-sided-tumbler-jar-amber.) Woodfire Candle Company has a similar container for their whiskey glass candles (https://woodfirecandleco.com/collections/whiskey-collection/products/whiskey-glass-soy-wood-wick-candle) that I absolutely love. I've spent hours looking all over for a place that sells a container like this but so far no luck. 

 

Does anyone use containers like these or know where I can purchase them? I may end up using containers similar to PF Candle, but I like it better without the grooves for a lid at the top. I plan to use either cork or a bamboo lid.

Any luck with these?  Have you thought of making a gel candle "whiskey"?  I've poured a few before as gifts, as well as some "on the rocks" types and they almost looked real.

Any luck finding a supplier? The ones I like tend to be Australian suppliers, but I’m also looking for an amber tumbler here in the states if anyone has recommendations. The ones at CandleScience are too thin. I like this one, but these are hard to find here in the states, surprisingly.

That jar almost looks like a cut off beer bottle...

I've seen amber jars with screw on lids at other suppliers but not the tumblers.  PF Candle uses the amber jars.  I didn't like Candle Science tumblers at all, not only were they on the thin side but the coloring wasn't consistent in the case I bought.  Love the ones Woodfire uses with the cork tops!

We have a similar jar available in Canada here https://villagecraftandcandle.com/candle-making/containers-packaging/containers/8oz-amber-jar  Kind of expensive, even by Canadian standards, but if we have it here...I am sure our supplier gets it from the USA..  

 

Thanks. Those are actually not hard to find, they’re called glass PET jars. But I’m looking for ones without the screw on top, more like a drinking glass or vase.

There is a company that makes gorgeous ones.  I think it's something like curion or something like that.  There is a post here somewhere on the forum about them but they are very expensive.  I have been looking for jars like that but have never found them.  The ones that CS sells are spray painted amber.  They are not amber glass.  Even the black ones they have are spray painted.  I won't buy them.  The scratch and chip easily.  Good luck!

Found these: Glassnow's 8.5oz heavy glass votive

 

Smaller than the OP wanted. Glassnow has two top styles for them as well, but the price is a bit steep overall.

 

Nice! That’s what I’m looking for. Trappeur, this is probably what you’re referring to as well, from Couronne. 

 

Thanks everyone.

Those are NICE jars!!.. A tad expensive, but for those of you that sell your candles..those jars would set you apart from the crowd...And the lids to go with them look great too!!

I've used the CS amber glass without a problem. It hasn't been a chippy paint situation for me.  If it's not what you want, then it's not. But I haven't had a problem with them. :)

General Wax in California sells them. They are reasonably priced at .99 cents each. The quality can be a bit hit and miss. I have found some batches a bit uneven in paint thickness, so shows up patchy. I try to stick my label on to cover the worst section!  Also, I just tested a batch where I dyed my wax a creamy coffee color, and that helped 😄

Nice! Yes, I’ll have to bookmark those too.
