New Zealand Miniature Bottle Club
New Zealand Miniature Bottle Club (formerly Port Nicholson Miniature Bottle Club) is the only club for collectors of miniature liquor and soft drink bottles and decanters in Australasia. Based in Wellington, New Zealand, the club has members throughout the country and semi-formal sub-branches in both Auckland and Christchurch. We also have members in a number of other countries including Australia, USA, Canada and the UK. Through our overseas members, and by more formal means, regular contact is maintained with
miniature bottle clubs and individual collectors in the above countries as well as Japan, the Czech Republic, Peru and Italy, to name just a few.
Bi-Monthly meetings are held mainly in members homes. They take the form of swap meets, barbeques, pot luck lunches etc. Our annual meeting is also a long weekend away where members can view other member's collections, trade bottles and generally have a good time.
Some members of the club are lucky enough to travel in the course of their work and make every effort to promote the hobby and contact members in the countries they visit. Overseas collectors who are coming to New Zealand, whether members or not, are encouraged to contact us.
Our newsletter,miNiZ, with 20 full colour pages, is published quarterly and can be received by snail mail or email. Samples are availiable for you to download.

Radio Interview Radio New Zealand National, This Way Up, 1st February 2014. An interview about mini bottle collecting with the club's editor and webmaster, David Smith. Unfortunatly no mention of the club (it was edited out) but worth listening to if you are a collector or are thinking of becoming one.
