Estal introduces new Wild Glass colour

Estal, a leading company in the premium packaging market, has introduced ‘Wild Glass’, a sustainable glass bottle concept for the distillery, beverage and gourmet industries.

Estal’s Wild Glass is obtained from 100% recycled PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) glass. The glass is designed to look organic and authentic, similar to hand-made glass. The production of the glass does not exclude bottles with cosmetic imperfections. Additionally, by using recycled glass in the production process, Wild Glass reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions, since a lower fuel consumption is required when melting the recycled glass down, compared to converting raw materials into glass.

In October last year, Estal’s Wild Glass was awarded the Special Jury Prize in the Solutions Packaging category at the Prix Luxe Pack, held in Monaco. Since Estal’s first campaign, bottle wastage has dropped 10%, from a rate of 25% to 15%.

The Wild Glass bottles come in two shades, Flint Wild Glass and Dark Wild Glass; in five different shapes – Primal, Natural, Brave, Bobber and Bobber Jr; and come in two types of mouth, Bocachata and Chocker.

Winemakers now have the option to combine the new Wild Glass colour with Estal’s Sommelier-designed wine bottles; a design with a minimalist ring profile that is said to reinforce the quality of wine.

Estal has been successful in building customer bases in Spain, France, Italy and America. In the UK, the company has the trust of prestigious producers such as Halewood International and Alltech Beverage Division Ireland, in addition to collaborating with renowned designers such as Stranger & Stranger, Contagious or ButterflyCannon.
