Opening the cork is a ceremony enjoyed by many – the pop as the cork leaves the bottle is music to many peoples’ ears!

Whether you require a natural, technological or synthetic cork, our range of cork closures will provide the perfect solution for still or sparkling wines while always complimenting your bottle.

Natural cork is a renewable product from the cork oak tree; these corks are also fully recyclable and biodegradable. This cork option is both eco-friendly and sustainable. Natural cork is suitable for when bottlers wish to keep their products 100% natural and where sustainability and minimising environmental impact are key to a brand’s ethos.

Diam & Mytik Diam closures help maintain sensorial purity and ensure consistency throughout the life of bottled wine.

Synthetic closures offer predictable, consistent & reliable wine corks. Wine corks come in varying diameters and lengths.

At Berlin Packaging UK, we understand that customers require a wide choice of cork options. Therefore, our range of cork closures can be made to order or despatched from stock to suit a variety of wine styles & packaging requirements.
