Yeah, its a serious challenge working out the logistics of long-term shelf-stable bottling when you get outside of alcohol. Im certain it could be done, but I’m not sure I’d be interested in the time and effort.
For me, I think the appeal would be reusing old bottles for short term storage at times when portioning or trying to keep the container might be inconvenient or impossible. Since bottling with a beer capper takes only a few seconds, I could see this being convenient for a lot of excursions where lugging an empty bottle around would be impractical.
It might also be interesting to see if attitudes of the uninitiated might change based on the serving container (i.e. soda style bottle vs beer bottle vs wine bottle etc). As a marketing professional specializing in human psychology, I’d be astounded if it didn’t make a noticeable difference, I’m just not sure whether it would be positive or negative.
