British Glass members Allied and Stölzle celebrate at Luxury Packaging Awards 2016

The third annual Luxury Packaging Awards took place on the 14 September at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London - celebrating another year of high quality packaging: prestigious, beautifully crafted and innovative.


This year’s judging panel included packaging developers and specifiers from organisations including Diageo, Jo Malone, Crabtree & Evelyn, Procter & Gamble, Bacardi, Edrington, Hotel Chocolat and Harrods. The judges cast their eyes over nearly 100 entrants, all submitting their high-end packaging.


Two British Glass members, Allied Glass and Stölzle took home awards at this year's event.


Allied Glass was awarded Highly Commended in the extremely competitive Special Edition category with the truly beautiful Balvenie D.C.S. Compendium, the judges commenting:

A beautiful piece that has been really considered at every stage. It protects and promotes the brand values in a stunningly beautiful way.


The Balvenie DCS Compendium is presented in the most extraordinary pack, one which expounds the superlative and prestigious nature of the spirit whilst advancing the iconic Balvenie branding. The beautiful bottle, which is secured inside, stays true to the existing Balvenie shape but is given luxury connotations by being larger, heavier in weight and with a thicker base.


Of the most exacting visual standards, each bottle is manufactured in extra white premium flint glass and then polished to create an exceptional sheen and lustre.

 

Stölzle Glass was awarded the Drinks – Bottle (premium) category with their stunning Isle of Harris Gin bottle, the judges commenting:

Design is classic contemporary and ties in well with the theme. The glass production with embossing over seam is technically challenging and the sprayed base adds a subtle colour element which works well with the thick base and embossing to create an interesting effect.

It’s a very nice cork closure and overall a very effective pack – feels more premium than price point.


This bespoke bottle was created by Stölzle Flaconnage the British production site of the Stölzle Glass Group. An innovative development team made the elaborate bottle design and decoration come true. Beside its thick bottom base the bottle impresses by a very fine ripped surface all over. Every rip can be defined as a symbol to underline the importance of the excellent work and huge expertise of all the highly-skilled people involved in that project.
