Question:

Is Underberg available only in 20ml bottles?

Answer:

Underberg was first launched in 1846, and until 1949 it was marketed in various bottle sizes. Following the end of World War II, Underberg was sold only in the portion bottles designed at the time. Since then, Underberg has been available in the 20ml portion bottles exclusively.

There was a good reason for choosing the Underberg bottle of that size. Amongst other things it is forgery-proof, it replaces a drinking vessel when travelling, and due to various packaging sizes it can easily be taken along anywhere: a 2-bottle package for the handbag, a 4-bottle package for travelling, and the 12-bottle package for storage. These advantages cannot be provided by a 0.7 litre bottle.
