What’s the difference between a 1 Liter bottle and a 750 ml bottle? Which FlairCo bottle should I get?

If you’re a beginner to flair bartending (12 months or less) you should probably get a 1 Liter. A 1 Liter bottle is most like everything that you use behind your bar and the 1 Liter FlairCo practice bottle will be most similar to what you generally use. It will be the best practice bottle for you.

However, if you’ve been flairing for a while and are looking to practice some more challenging moves, consider getting a 750 ml bottle – it’s what 95% of flair bartenders ultimately end up using. The reason for this is that 1) the smaller 750 ml bottle will fit very nicely into the shaker tin, allowing you to practice a whole bunch of sweet new moves where you catch the bottle in the tin and 2) if you are one of the lucky few who works in a full flair bar, the 750 ml bottle is the standard size bottle used in most flair bars.

For 80% of the people reading this – especially if you’ve never owned a practice bottle – the 1 Liter FlairCo practice bottle is going to be your best bet to start with. That being said, as you progress with your skill level you’ll ultimately want to move into using 750s. If you can afford to purchase one of each size, do so, and enjoy the versatility that you will have as you move forward.
