We are pleased to announce that five Stölzle bottles have been shortlisted in their chosen category in this year’s UK Packaging Awards. Proving that glass is the only way to go, yet again Prestige spirit bottles are show cased at their very best.
The Viking Runes – Highland Park-The Dark (17 Year Old) – The Edrington Group
Edrington, an international leader in producing fine spirits dating back to the late 1800’s, yet again joined forces with the Stölzle Glass Group in producing this unique Highland Park whisky bottle. It is a unique limited edition bottle, produced in “feeder” black, which demonstrates extremely complex and striking Viking symbolism.
The Johnny Walker Blade Runner – Director’s cut: – Diageo Global
Blended Scotch Whisky collaborated with film makers of the sci-fi sequel ‘Blade runner 2049’ to create a futuristic blended drink bottled at 49% above to pay homage to the year the film is set. Created 30 years after the original Blade Runner movie where the Johnny Walker bottle featured the new design complements the futuristic film.
The Berkeley Square – Quintessential Brands
The new Berkeley Square London Dry Gin evokes the timeless style associated with London’s most prestigious district through its design that is truly reminiscent of the architecture of the area.
The development project began back in January 2016 which resulted in an impressive square spirit bottle with stunning decoration elements which were hand applied, such as the lions head cartouche with the snap lock collars bonded onto the glass.
McQueen Gin, a family–owned brand, relied on Stölzle Glass Group to re-design their current ceramic gin bottle into a more ‘eco’ friendly glass version. Stölzle took the design into flint production whilst retaining and accentuating the style and design elements of the original. According to Dale McQueen, founder and Managing Director of McQueen Gin, “the Stölzle bottle design has been central to the establishment of the brand and the popularity of the gin”.
Devils Head Vodka – Fallen Angel Drinks
Fallen Angel Drinks is a new and innovative brand which focuses as much on its unique bottle designs as on its provocative liquids. Stölzle took their iconic 75cl bottle and miniaturised it in conjunction with the brand’s in house design team to create a mass producible 50ml miniature unit, retaining all of the industry leading details but only 1/15th of the size. This was a task many glass manufacturers believed impossible. We succeeded! Now we are proud to say that – so far – Devils Head Vodka is the most detailed miniature bottle on the planet to be launched into the global market.
