27 March 2020 8.30am: Please assume we are unable to send orders until further notice due to the Covid-19 Lockdown which currently restricts freight services to essential supplies only.

You can still shop! No payment required yet.  Shopping early will prioritise your purchase when we are able to ship again. When you go through the checkout process you will be able to place your order and the only "payment" option is "order now, pay later".

Our unlimited email support for customers continues during the lockdown because we are home-based.  If you did not purchase your products at makewine but require advice you can still purchase advice at our home winemaking advice page and of course browse our how to make wine at home pages for information.  Genuine pre-purchase enquiries are of course welcome.

If you are harvesting fruit you can freeze it for making wine once you are able to access supplies.  If making 5 litre batches we suggest you freeze in 2kg lots.  Most fruit can be frozen whole but do remove any bad spots.

23 x 20 Litre Food Grade Polypails / Buckets with Tamper Evident (Tear Tab)  Lids

Does not ship to South Island rural or Chathams/Stewart/Barrier Islands.  Can be purchased on trademe by paying for freight, shipped to an urban address for your collection or email info at makewine dot co dot nz for a quote or to find out what depot we can ship to for your collection.


Approximate dimensions of the bucket / polypail is:  300mm (top) 400mm (height)

The lids to the buckets have tamper evident tear tabs.  These will need to be removed to remove the lid from the bucket for the first time.

The material the buckets or polypails are manufactured from is PP (polypropylene) and is recycle code 5. The buckets are both reusable and recyclable.

Sometimes the lids are a tight fit and you may need to pour hot water over the lid to soften (especially the first time), and a bucket opener (select using the right hand side drop-down box) may be useful to open.  The lid will generally stretch & soften fractionally with use which is enough to be able to open and close more easily.  The buckets are commercial grade so the ease of putting on and taking off the lid will always be much harder than say a domestic kitchen product.

This product is not eligible for further discounts.

  • Food packaging and sale
  • Food storage
  • Emergency water storage
  • Animal feed storage
