CCL Container, one of North America’s leading manufacturers of recyclable aluminum packaging, has unveiled a new aluminum wine bottle, meeting the increasing demand for sustainability and freshness.
Designed with CCL Container’s BodyShapes technology, the 750 ml aluminum bottle is resealable with a threaded cap that can keep the wine fresh for longer than a traditional glass bottle. With higher thermal conductivity and chill retention than glass and plastic, aluminum bottles cool quickly and stay cooler for longer.
Because the threading in the cap does not contain plastic, the entire container, made from virgin aluminum, is 100 percent recyclable. Despite a wide diameter, aluminum bottles weigh less than glass bottles and are less expensive to ship, while durability makes them virtually unbreakable.
‘The wine industry is steeped in tradition that dates back thousands of years, yet many brands and wine drinkers are clamoring for innovation,’ said Kimberly Kizer, vice president of sales for CCL Container. ‘The new, burgundy-shaped aluminum wine bottle provides the best of all worlds in terms of quality, freshness, sustainability, and unique branding opportunities.’
CCL’S aluminum bottle enables wineries to take advantage of expanded design options such as multi-color lithography up to nine colors, embossing and debossing of graphics and logos, and a variety of finishes make it possible to create brand distinction and differentiation.
