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.
