A manufacturer of recyclable aluminum packaging, CCL Container unveiled a new aluminum wine bottle shaped like a classic burgundy wine bottle. The new container meets ever-increasing demand for sustainability and freshness while honoring the classic shape of a conventional wine bottle, the company says. Designed with the company’s BodyShapes shaping technology, the 750-ml aluminum bottle is resealable with a threaded cap that can keep wine fresh for longer than a traditional glass bottle. With higher thermal conductivity and chill retention than glass and plastic, the aluminum bottles cool quickly and stay cooler for a longer period of time, according to the company. Because the threading in the cap does not contain plastic, the entire container, made from virgin aluminum, is 100% recyclable. Despite a wide diameter, aluminum bottles weigh less than glass bottles and are less expensive to ship. Additionally, the material’s durability makes aluminum wine bottles virtually unbreakable. Noting that wine brands tend to blend in on-shelf, CCL’s burgundy-shaped aluminum bottle enables wineries to take advantage of expanded design options. Additionally, the bottles have unlimited decorating opportunities, including multi-color lithography of as many as nine colors, embossing and debossing of graphics and logos, and a variety of finishes.
