Lewis Road Creamery in New Zealand has turned to a bespoke bottle from glass packaging company Croxsons for its coffee cream and chocolate cream liqueurs.

The dairy producer, which has committed to to 100 per cent recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging by 2025, chose the Croxsons solution for its 700ml Kahlúa Cream liqueur, adapted from a previous aluminium bottle.

The bottle is sprayed gold to suggest a high-value product while simultaneously providing UV protection to the liquid inside, and incorporates a gold 33mm GPI closure chosen for its easy application properties, its printing capabilities, and its well-proportioned mouth opening for the bottle size.

According to James Croxson of Croxsons, the company was delighted to connect with an innovative brand like Lewis Road Creamery, and hopes to develop further product lines for it in the future.

“In terms of delivery, we really pushed the limits of what is possible. Within forty-eight hours of starting the project, there was a concept and a drawing – which were signed off within another thirty-six hours,” said Croxson. “The bottles were manufactured within nine weeks, despite considerable hurdles with production and shipping.

“Regardless of the setbacks, this is still a fantastic achievement in terms of turnaround time, which impressed the client immensely.”
