TricorBraun Sourced Bottle Toasts City Skylines

by Michael L. Drohlich
Buildings from world-famous skylines provided the inspiration for the custom-designed bottle created for New Artisan Spirits and sourced by TricorBraun, one of North America’s largest suppliers of rigid packaging.

New Artisan Spirits, Houston, Texas, recently launched Roxor, a new Gin that was conceived to meet the public’s rising interest in unique spirits that are distilled in limited quantities.


Roxor was formulated by a James Beard-award-winning chef with a PhD in biochemistry. His partner, a former Coca-Cola marketing executive, wanted a bottle, “That toasts the world’s most prominent architects and their architecture that commands the skylines of the world’s greatest cities.”

The 750-ml bottle is made with cosmetic grade super flint glass and was manufactured by artisan glass-makers in Mexico City. It uses a 33-400 custom light-weight polypropylene continuous thread closure that is embossed with the spirit’s name. A flat, window-pane relief designed at the bottle’s waist serves as a grip and provides a space for the two-pass silkscreen label. The bottle’s parting-line is placed on a diagonal so it cannot be seen across the face.

The company is planning to introduce a 1.75-liter bottle that shall be taller and wider than its 750-ml counterpart; however it will maintain the same scale.

TricorBraun, ( has over 40 locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Asia. The company’s primary focus is on packaging for personal care; cosmetics; healthcare; food and beverages; as well as industrial and household chemicals.
