WINES & SPIRITS
Gaasch Packaging UK is a well-established partner for the glass packaging needs of the Scotch Whisky industry and the large spirits and wine producers in England. Our vast experience, as well as our long-established and reliable network, allow us to provide the required focus to assist you with either standard packaging or offer you a fully bespoke design and product development service, to enable you to realise your new product designs.
We are extremely passionate about the products and services we can offer, and relish the challenges brought to us by demanding new design briefs.
We have well-established, exclusive relationships with our manufacturing partners, and our customer base includes companies from the craft distilling sector through to the largest international spirit brand companies. As a non-manufacturing distributor, we are proud to share the fact that some of our UK customers have been with us since the very start of the UK operation! We think this shows that our dedication to delivering excellent service and high-quality products is recognised and appreciated.
According to their specific requirements, we help our customers source a vast range of general trade/off-the-shelf glass bottles in many glass colours or we take them on the journey from a design concept to the manufacturing of a bespoke/tailor-made packaging solution supplying the bottle, the cork, and the capsule.
CASE STUDY: A SUPER-PREMIUM DEVELOPMENT FOR THE BENROMACH HERITAGE RANGE
Our customer, the well-known Gordon & MacPhail of Elgin, is famous for its finest handmade single malt whisky, matured exclusively in first-fill casks.
The challenge was to create a supreme visual quality glass bottle for an exceptional 40 years old Benromach whisky, including all primary packaging components namely cork, capsule and medallion to the same standard.
Our project management consisted in engaging with all relevant companies in our manufacturer base from the very beginning of the project, coordinating the development of every single component and ultimately delivering the finalized project on time.
The result is a magnificent super-premium presentation for a range of very old and very special malt whisky: a 70cl extra flint bottle, fire-polished to visually remove the mould seams. The cork is topped by a rose gold coloured zamak top to match the colour of an authentic pot still and the medallion matches this colour. The capsule is manufactured to approx. three times the standard material thickness, to cope with application over the very wide neck profile.
CASE STUDY: A SHARPLY EMBOSSED BOTTLE FOR THE BENROMACH CORE RANGE
Our customer asked us to create a competitively priced but premium visual quality one-stop shopping experience for the Benromach core range.
The concept was to involve the glass, cork and capsule producers from the very beginning. Thereafter Gaasch Packaging managed the timely production of all three primary packaging components to deliver a sharply embossed bottle in extra-white flint, sealed by a top quality personalized wooden-topped cork stopper and beautifully embossed tin capsule.
