TricorBraun Wins Two International Beverage Packaging Awards
by Michael L. Drohlich
TricorBraun won two international awards in the World Beverage Competition’s packaging division.
TricorBraun received the Platinum Best of Show Award in the Spirits category for Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream, a Tennessee whiskey cream liqueur. The custom designed 750ml amber glass bottle features a finger loop on the neck and resembles a slender Roaring Twenties jug with a pinched waist. The complex shape challenged the application of the silk screen and applied ceramic embellishments. Competition judges noted the bottle is, “Reminiscent of the bygone ‘Golden Era’ of Spirits.” The customer is SPEAKeasy spirits, Nashville, Tenn.
A custom-designed vodka bottle, created to mark the opening of an elegant Miami night club, won the bronze award in the Spirits category. The 750ml bottle features a full, metallic blue shrink sleeve designed to reflect the night club’s bar lights. The bottle’s presentation includes a house key suspended from its neck to emphasize House Nightclub Miami as the club’s name. House Nightclub Miami is TricorBraun’s customer.
