Does anyone make 1/16 whiskey jugs? or something similiar?

I'm turning the Duke's Charger back into a nighttime whiskey runner and need some 'cargo'.

Thanks

Ahem...for a start, "whiskey jugs" can be seen in the Beverly Hillbilly's kit. It's the proverbial "little brown jug". However, for a proper moonrunner what you would want would be mason jars. Moonshiners found it much easier to transport and control in crated mason jars like grandma used to have preserves in. There were wooden and eventually cardboard crates available to place the jars in. The jars were often wrapped in or had hay stuffed around them in the crate to protect them.

As for scale items I don't know of any makers of either.
