2012 UK Packaging Awards

Metal Pack of the Year – sponsored by MPMA


Bruichladdich Octomore Comus

Crown Speciality Packaging UK : Bruichladdich Octomore Comus

The Octomore Comus pack caught the judges’ eye for its “great synergy between bottle, tin and graphics”. Developed as a premium collectable pack, it provides a tactile feel with the tin embossed and coated in multiple layers of gloss varnish.

One judge said that the product was “superbly executed” and another said it had “dramatic” shelf presence and was “an innovation that extends to the brand”.

The judges agreed that the tin was the perfect solution to protect the premium distinctive acid etched bottle.
