A glass bottle is an item used to pick up water to make water bottles, which is the start of the brewing process.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Glass bottles can be obtained by crafting, drinking potions, or from witch drops.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Ingredients Crafting recipe


Drinking[edit | edit source]

Drinking a potion will return the empty glass bottle. Throwing a splash potion or a lingering potion will not return a glass bottle, but brewing a lingering potion will give a glass bottle back.

Witches[edit | edit source]

Witches have a chance of dropping 0–6 glass bottles upon death.

Cauldrons[edit | edit source]

Using a water bottle, potion or splash potion on a cauldron that isn't full yet will add that liquid to the cauldron, leaving the player with an empty glass bottle.[Pocket edition only]

Usage[edit | edit source]

Glass bottles can be filled to make water bottles, which can then be used to brew items with a brewing stand. Glass bottles are also used to hold the resulting potion.

A bottle may be filled by holding it in your hand and using on a water source block or a filled cauldron. If filled via a water source, the water will be unaffected. If filled via a cauldron, 1/3 of the water (or potion[Pocket edition only]) in the cauldron will be removed. Therefore, using a cauldron to fill bottles is inefficient, except in the Nether where it is normally the only way to fill bottles.

Using a glass bottle in an area where the ender dragon breathed will fill the bottle with dragon's breath.
