It is more energy efficient to make a glass bottle. Aluminum is made from bauxite, which has bad effects on the environment where it is mined. Glass is made from silica, which is more accessible. If you are wondering whether its more eco-friendly to consume a beverage in a can or a bottle, that depends on a number of factors, including how far away the beverage was manufactured (travel time = energy). However, it should be kept in mind that aluminum is more easily recyclable.
While it is more energy efficient to make a glass bottle, aluminum is an incredibly common material which has its benefits (ie, an aluminum container probably does not have to travel as far as a glass container). Aluminum is also much more simple to render into a container.
