The winners of UK Packaging Awards 2018 were revealed at a glittering gala dinner on Tuesday 30th October at the Grosvenor House on London’s Park Lane.
A great Gin bottle made by Stölzle Flaconnage received the Highly Commended Award in the category “Glass Pack of the Year: Spirits, perfume, cosmetics”.
McQueen gin, a family – owned brand, approached Stölzle Glass Group to re-design their ceramic gin bottle into more “eco” friend flint glass. The task was to take the design into flint production whilst retaining and hopefully accentuating the style and design elements of the original. Stölzle’s approach was to take the embossed and debossed features of the ceramic bottle, way beyond the levels often celebrated in the packaging periodicals. The result was a stunning Premium flint glass bottle.
