Buildings from world-famous skylines provided the inspiration for the custom-designed bottle created for New Artisan Spirits and sourced by TricorBraun. New Artisan Spirits, Houston, recently launched Roxor, a new gin that was conceived to meet the public’s rising interest in unique spirits that are distilled in limited quantities. The 750-ml. bottle is made with cosmetic grade super flint glass and was manufactured by artisan glass-makers in Mexico City. It uses a custom lightweight polypropylene continuous thread closure that is embossed with the spirit’s name. A flat, window-pane relief designed at the bottle’s waist serves as a grip and provides a space for the two-pass silkscreen label. The bottle’s parting line is placed on a diagonal so it cannot be seen across the face. The company is planning to introduce a 1.75-liter bottle that will maintain the same scale, but be taller and wider than the current 750-ml. option.

Reflecting the historic logo and vibrant color schemes of Cintron, the redesigned packaging brings a cohesive, unified look and feel to the company’s global tea and fruit drink brand lineup, it says. The modernized design builds on elements of Cintron’s visual identity, including bold logotype lettering, fruit illustrations and natural imagery to underscore the tea and fruit drinks as a source of fruit, the company says.
