Bottles & Packaging
 

In India the excise department of most states mandate the following packaging norms for alcoholic beverages:

Alcoholic item Bottle Term Ml per Bottle Bottles per case
Beer Full 650 12
  Half/Pint 330 24
 
Wines & Spirits Litre 1 Litre 9 or 12
  'Quart' 750 ml 12 (6 permitted for wine)
  'Pint' 375 ml 24
  'Nip' 180 ml 48
  'Miniature' 60 ml 150

Goa is the only state where the sale of wine in 2 Litre "bag-in-the-box" is allowed

Internationally, bottle sizes are standardised, and a bottle containing 750 ml (75 cl or 27 fl oz) is accepted almost universally as the standard wine bottle (for spirits many countries have a 700 ml or 70 cl bottle); other bottle sizes available (some only very rarely) are:
