Custom Spirit and Liquor Glass Bottles

Why is alcohol always stored in glass bottles and not a plastic container

Permeability issue: The permeability issue of plastic bottles is recognized by the industry. Some manufacturers use newly developed materials such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which acts as a barrier to gas release. In fact, plastic is not as impermeable as glass. The alcohol stored is more likely to go off in a plastic bottle. Glass is impermeable to O2 and CO2, hence the spirits can be stored in the glass bottles for a longer duration.

Leaching effects: Plastic has certain chemical substances including ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid which has the tendency to leach to considerable extent if alcohol is stored for a longer period. Though it is deemed safe to store at room temperature, increase in the temperature may lead to leaching of chemicals into the drink. Glass bottle has high resistance against the leaching due to the stability of material personality.

Why a beautiful spirit and liquor bottle needs to be launched

While tasting is the key point to buy the sprit and liquor beverage, beautiful packing will provide eye-catching look on retail shelves that attract customs. People love to buy products with good looking appearance. So, a unique bottle will give the first sight buying or not buying the spirit and liquor.

Each brand carries its own values, has its own story and is recognizable of the different personalization. Creation and new design will reflect the company’s core competence. So, it is important to develop a tailored bottle that look like no other. Embossed logo is a good choice also the recognizable personality like thick bottom, flint material, long neck or pure square shape will attract customer from the first glance. Choosing an existing bottle shape and add unique decoration is a good idea since mold can be expansive and the minimal order of a custom glass bottle will be huge when the budget is not sufficient.

Frosting, screen printing, decal, metallic printing, and whole surface printing will give different look

Screen Printing

is printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multi-colored image or design.

There are various terms used for what is essentially the same technique. Traditionally, the process was called screen printing or silk screen printing because silk was used in the process. It is also known as serigraph and serigraph printing. Currently, synthetic threads are commonly used in the screen-printing process. The most popular mesh in general use is made of polyester. There are special-use mesh materials of nylon and stainless steel available to the screen-printer. There are also different types of mesh size which will determine the outcome and look of the finished design on the material.


Decal is short for decalcomania, which is the English version of the French word décalcomanie.

A decal consists of the following layers from top to bottom:

  1. A paper or film face stock makes up the top layer of the label stock. The printing is done on the upper side of the face stock.
  2. An adhesive layer is applied to the bottom of the face stock.
  3. A silicone or release coating layer is applied to the upper side of the backing material.
  4. A paper or film liner provides the bottom layer of the label stock.

When need multiple printing on the surface of glass bottle, decal process is used.

Who will buy the alcohol glass bottles

We found the most popular use of liquor and spirit glass bottle is for brewing alcohol. Some customers buy small quantity to make homemade liquor at home. It is fun and the following are the straightforward process. First sterilize the glass bottle/jar and allow to cool. Then fill the fruit to the neck of the bottle and add sugar. Pour the vodka to the neck of the glass bottle. Put on the lid and make sure the seal is tight. Then add a strip of tape and write the dated on it. Store the glass bottle in a dark place. Flip every day for 3 months. When 3 months passed, strain out the fruit pieces through a colander. To make the brandy clearer strain again through a coffee filter. Once done, either keep them for personal use or label them for gifting or selling.
