Bimal Bottles
Bimal stands for blow-in-mold-applied-lip bottles. These bottles were replaced by a more efficient automated bottle making system in the early 1900's. Due to the manner in which these bottles were made, no two are alike. There is a crudity to these types of bottles which has made them a top collectible throughout the world. Hawaii is well represented in bimal soda types and colors. Many think that Hawaii has many of the highly desired bimal sodas. What follows is a small sampling of the several hundred examples of bimal soda bottles manufactured for the Hawaii marketplace between 1851 and 1910. The most complete reference to all bimals is the Elliot-Gould book, "Hawaiian Bottles of Long Ago." Enjoy viewing a small smapling of bimal Hawaiina soda bottles.
