Spirit bottles tend to feel and look luxurious. It’s hard to throw away a beautifully designed gin or whisky bottle; we sense they need to be repurposed. So many pubs, bars or family homes fill empty spirit bottles with LED lights for a warm and wondrous glow. It all adds to the ambience while interjecting an aura of warmth and happy thoughts.
Luxury Spirit Bottles
Spirit bottles are filled with flavoured, alcoholic beverages that tend to demand high consumer price points. Some whiskey brands will sit in a distillery for over 60 years, waiting to be packed with the perfect essence from oak barrels and organic, high yielding grains. Before a customer can purchase a bottle of their finest liquor there are many manufacturing steps that need to be followed carefully. These include;
- Pot Stills
- Spirit Safe
- Caping – sealed
These twelve steps allow the final spirit bottle to be available in shops and superstores around the globe.
As a manufacturer and distributor of a vast range of spirit bottles, we have combined five of our iconic bottle shapes. We hope they bring a little inspiration, help with your brand goals and get your product to market.
Anis Rizada Spirit Bottle
The Anis Rizada is a beautiful round bottle with a 700ml capacity and finished in the colour flint. What makes the Anis an iconic bottle is its stunning embossed diamond finish. The Anis Rizada compliments any liquid contents and works well with shades of;
- Amber Whisky
- Citrus Gin
- Golden Rum
- Crystal vodka.
If you’re creating a brand with sophistication, weight and flavour? We would recommend the Anis Rizada spirit bottle from our distinctive bottle range.
Do you need a chunky, classic, rum, whisky or gin bottle? The Alquima sets the scene with its solid round edges, dome bottom and overhanging neck lip. We have a range of spirit closures complementing this fabulous bottle design, including Bar Tops and Vinolok’s.
The Alquima bottle also has a large surface area for the placement of a distinctive label or biscuit. Brand labelling is an essential factor for any premium drink, especially in the world of spirits. Moreover, using considered colours, logo design and wording can enhance the final look and feel of the spirit bottle.
The Decanter Amethyst bottle is stylish, Iconic and full of personality. If you’re looking for a brandy, whisky or rum bottle? The Decanter is precisely what you need. Once filled with the desired liquor, the colour of the liquid alcohol brings to life the curves of this elegant bottle.
The Decanter Amethyst has a capacity of 700ml, is round in shape and finished in flint colour. The bulb of the bottle has a 3d symmetrical wrap-effect, which promotes a premium weight and finish.
Gloria is a distinctive spirit bottle with a round curvy bottom and a beautiful slender neck. The capacity of this bottle is 100ml, and the height reaches a measured 245mm. Gloria catches the eye of consumers looking for something different, luxurious or complementary.
Gloria is a spirit bottle perfect for special occasions, birthdays, Christmas or a New Year’s Party. Because the bottle design declares stature, the content needs to be of superior quality.
To round up our collection of Iconic spirit bottles, we have introduced Elery, designed with a square base and broad flat shoulders. The sharp tones and flint finish command a tasty rum, whiskey, or flavoured vodka.
Elery has a capacity of 700ml and sits 245mm high. As the bottle is a classic shape, the label needs to be eye-catching yet feel established to the consumer.
Build Your Spirit Bottle Brand
We hope you enjoyed reading through our five iconic bottle shapes. As a manufacturer of spirit bottles for brands worldwide, we wanted to showcase a few bottles that are popular, classic and hold the essence for the luxury in design.
Creating your beverage brand from scratch can be a tough journey; from start to finish, you will have to think about and make decisions on:
- The design of the bottle shape and colour
- Matching closure options, glass, cork, synthetic, capsules or wax
- Choose a stock option bottle or cast a brand new bottle shape (depends on budget)
- Label design
- Liquid contents, taste, colour and odour
- Filling, capping and sealing options
- Logistics, storing & distribution
- Marketing objective and target audience.
Berlin Packaging UK can help you with all of the above.
Bespoke Spirit Bottles
Many established spirit brands will create a new bottle shape for their beverage. Some brands will keep this bottle or slightly change the flavour or ingredients and design a limited edition bottle that grabs their customer’s attention. This marketing strategy is perfect for hype, press release, news channels, trade shows and increases customer interaction and engagement.
Here are a few examples of our case studies to wet your appetite for bespoke spirit bottle creation.
Chapter 7 grabs the limelight in the world of Scotch whisky with their new Vinolok glass bottle stopper. The elegance and shape of the glass closure offers a luxury finish and enriches the beautiful Nocturne bottle.
The Sky Garden Gin Project
The Sky Garden Gin Project was developed by a small distillery that produced a power punch, a spirit bottle with a vignette effect that offers fading from a light blue to clear.
The Kraken Black Spiced Rum ‘Unknown Deep’ Limited Edition
Earlier this year, Berlin Packaging UK created a limited edition bottle that was at the heart of Kraken’s ‘Unknown Deep’ campaign. The customer was looking for custom-made packaging that encapsulates the spirit of the iconic tentacle symbol of the Kraken brand.
