The innovative paperboard wine and spirit bottles have gracefully entered the scene, not just to make a statement but to reshape the very essence of packaging. With their ingenious construction and undeniable eco-friendly charm, they’ve sparked a revolution that’s set to redefine the industry norms, and rest assured, they’re not going anywhere. So, grab your favorite beverage, and let’s unravel the remarkable world of paperboard bottles and discover why it’s high time to shatter the glass ceiling and embrace a greener future.

What’s the Buzz about Paperboard Bottles?

The Marvelous Make-Up of Paperboard

The magic of paperboard lies in its composition – 94% recycled material, making it a champion in sustainability. With its die-cut paperboard blank on the outside and a food-grade metalized PET pouch on the inside, it’s the perfect duo ready to conquer the world of packaging. The paperboard blank is molded around a hollow, mandrel-shaped mold, with the pre-inserted pouch, and then, edges are glued together using a water-based adhesive. The result? An environmentally friendly, durable, and fully recyclable bottle that’s lighter than traditional glass bottles, slashing shipping costs and carbon footprints. 

A Champion of Durability

“Hit it, drop it, freeze it, and it won’t break!” That’s the battle cry of the paperboard bottle. Unlike delicate glass bottles, paperboard can endure all sorts of mishaps without shattering into a thousand pieces. It’s like the superhero of bottles – tough and resilient, ready to withstand whatever life throws its way. Say goodbye to those sad moments of watching your precious glass bottle slip from your grasp and shatter on the floor. With paper bottles, you can confidently handle your bottles without fear, knowing they’ll emerge unscathed.

The Cold Resistance Hero

Glass bottles often crack when put in the freezer, but here’s where paper bottles shine. Not only are they durable, but their insulation properties are also outstanding. The paperboard and PET pouch combination insulates better than glass, keeping your spirits colder for longer. So, feel free to pop that bottle in the freezer and enjoy a refreshingly chilled drink without any concerns. 

A Sustainable Sip: Paper Bottle’s Eco Appeal

A Smaller Carbon Footprint

Paperboard bottles make Mother Earth proud of their eco-friendly nature. During production and shipping, they emit 6X fewer carbon emissions than glass bottles. It’s like giving the planet a much-needed break from the heavy burden of carbon. And if you’re sipping your wine or spirits from a paper bottle across long distances, worry not! With most glass bottles coming from far-off places like India or China, choosing paperboard significantly reduces your carbon footprint. It’s a win-win for your taste buds and the environment.

Plastic Reduction without Compromise

For the conscious consumers out there, here’s some good news: paperboard bottles contain up to 77% less plastic than regular plastic bottles. That’s a fantastic step towards reducing plastic waste and protecting our oceans. Every time you choose a paperboard bottle, you’re contributing to the fight against plastic pollution. They encourage us all to rethink our relationship with plastic and support a future where sustainability is at the forefront. So, sip smart and go green with paper bottles!

Elevating Wine & Spirits Packaging

Aesthetics that Turn Heads

Who said eco-friendly couldn’t be eye-catching? Paperboard bottles are a canvas for creativity. Available blank or with 360-degree pre-printed branding information, they eliminate the need for additional labels, offering a sleek and stylish appearance. With their unique design and branding opportunities, they’re bound to turn heads on the shelves and catch the attention of eco-conscious consumers. Paper bottles are a breath of fresh air amidst a sea of glass competitors.

Shelf Life that Puts the Competition to Shame

Paperboard bottles boast an impressive shelf life of over 12 months, ensuring that your beverages stay fresh and delightful for an extended period. Bid farewell to premature spoilage and embrace the convenience of paperboard’s long-lasting allure. It’s like having a loyal companion that never disappoints.

Embracing the Green Way

Recycling Made a Breeze

Recycling doesn’t have to be rocket science. The paperboard bottle comes with a simple and easily understood “How to Recycle” instruction on the back. Just press the “Press to Split” button on the side of the bottle, split it in half, and then separate the outer paperboard material from the inner PET pouch by hand. Voila! You’re all set to recycle the cardboard and pouch separately, contributing to a greener planet without any hassle.

Leading the Eco-Friendly Charge: Distillery 98’s Half Shell Vodka

Distillery 98’s Half Shell Vodka was the first to bring the revolutionary paperboard bottle to the United States. With their passion for sustainability and innovation, they broke the glass ceiling of conventional packaging and set the stage for a greener future. Their dedication to reducing waste, promoting recyclability, and cutting carbon footprints, has become a shining example of how a distillery can make a significant impact on environmental preservation.

With its recycled composition, lightweight nature, and excellent insulating abilities, paperboard bottles offer a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional glass and plastic bottles. They’ve broken through the glass ceiling of packaging conventions, providing a delightful combination of practicality, durability, and aesthetics.

So, if you’re a fan of the planet, a lover of convenience, and an advocate for style, look no further than paper wine and spirit bottles. Embrace the green revolution and join the journey to a more sustainable future, one sip at a time.
