Where to find a similar metal bottle w/wooden top like this ?

I posted this in the Long-distance/randonneurs forum, but it was suggested I try here instead as this has a classic look to it.

Where can I find this style of waterbottle and top, as well as the holder? I've seen many metal bottles with the plastic tops, but I'm looking specifically for the classic look of a metal bottle with no writing on it with the wooden top.

I've taken this picture from the Vanilla Bicycle site. Thank you for the help

Think Kleen Kanteen is the bottle perhaps has cork looking screw stoppers ,
or its the regular cap with a wooden piece added
that picture may be of a Hand made bike, such as by..
Vanilla cycles of Portland, seems the make/circle V, on the custom stem.
so the bottle cage is, likely, also hand made.

Thanks for the tip, I'll check out Kleen Kanteen and see if I can find one there. And yes, that bike is a custom bike by Vanilla Bicycles. I'm not sure if the bottle cage is custom or not. I would think so, as I haven't seen many designs like that, but it also seems like the bottle has a little lip half-way up that goes well with the cage in holding it.

If anyone else has seen this bottle/cage, feel free to chip in too please in case I don't find one at Kleen. Thanks guys !

Velo-Orange has a similar looking bottle, it is by Kleen Kanteen. I can't help you on the cage.

That cage is almost certainly proprietary and most likely custom.

I bought one of these off of eBay not too long ago. Pricy but well worth it., it's incredibly high quality.
