Radico Khaitan launches whisky in UFlex–Asepto’s aseptic pack

India’s largest IMFL (Indian made foreign liquor) maker, Radico Khaitan, has launched its whisky brand Triple Eight in a pack imbibing foil stamping feature, manufactured by UFlex-Asepto.

Triple Eight whisky aseptic packs launched in Karnataka is the outcome of a packaging partnership between both the companies to elevate the packaging standards for the IMFL category products and embellish the packs to make them aesthetically superior using unique design blends for brand differentiation.

Ashwani Kumar Sharma, president and CEO, UFlex-Asepto said, ‘We are extremely proud to have associated with Radico Khaitan which is known for quality blended whisky. The packaging will certainly accentuate its class to create an aspiration reach for its customers. While differentiation through unique packaging experience has always been Asepto’s key focus, the steal is the anti-counterfeit quality that is pertinent to prevent the consumption of adulterated liquor—a grave concern for the liquor makers.’

According to the company statement, while the brand Triple Eight will focus on better count of blended whisky inside, the effects of gold foil stamping and black color will impart the packs a unique identity. 

Amar Sinha, chief operating officer, Radico Khaitan said, ‘We are extremely happy with the results of this association. This is, in fact, the first time that an alcoholic beverage company has ventured into the foil stamping effects in the aseptic packaging space. This has been a result of long labor by both the companies to enter with a unique identity for their Triple Eight brand. Radico has always been ahead in the innovation and Triple Eight has created a buzz in the market with its iconic aesthetic shelf appeal encouraging repeat sales.’ 

UFlex–Asepto, through this partnership, is proposing uniqueness in aseptic packaging which was very basic until now, remarked Sharma. ‘Asepto's aseptic liquid packaging is a true example of an offering with top-class functionality as well as visually elegant packaging apt for alcoholic beverages,’ he said. 

He further added that the new-age packaging worked in more ways than one by curbing adulteration in the segment, creating choice for customers on retail shelves and retaining the quality flavours that Radico Khaitan is known to offer.

Triple Eight is a premium whisky and to cater to the growing demand in Karnataka it is now made available in 90ml and 180ml sizes. The six-layered aseptic packaging creates room for an experience for customers to get great taste of classic blended whisky in the above price range bracket.
