Sourcing T stoppers

Post by SCP » 17:29 Sun 09 Sep 2018

We have a big event coming up next month, for which we will need to double decant ~15-18 bottles of vintage port. I'd like to put T stoppers in and don't know where to source them (and I'm not able to drink 15 bottles of tawny in the next 4 weeks). Any ideas?
If not, then any alternatives that we could use?

Or ask an importer. They often have bags of them lying around from the trade shows they do.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
