    Are you going to drink it a bottle at a time? My suggestion would be plastic and ideally one that can be re-sealed. Corks might look the part but they are harder to sterilise.

    Edit: Ah, I now realise you mean the thing to put corks in. Either works in my experience but for peach schnapps crown corks in half pint beer bottles might be better!

    soke corks in sulphur dioxide solution over night rinse off
    crown corking is a grate idea I use cider bottles mangers or Bulmer's but makesure all fermentation has stopped.
