Manufacturer Beatson Clark is supporting the brewing sector by launching a new 330ml amber drinks bottle.

The new design is based on an Alpha Sirop bottle, which means you’d normally expect to see it used for medicines. But designs like this have become popular in recent years with drinks brands that want to convey a retro, vintage feel.

The versatile amber bottle is suitable for both beers and soft drinks. Unlike the original pharmaceutical design, it is tested to 3.0 bar, which makes it suitable for carbonated or fermented drinks.

“This bottle will be unique in the UK and we think it will prove very popular with breweries and drinks manufacturers,” said Charlotte Taylor, marketing manager at Beatson Clark.

“It’s a completely new design and can be supplied as a standard bottle from our general sale range. Or, for a small initial outlay, customers could add their own embossing to the bottle, with a minimum order of just 150,000 units in either neck finish.”

Beatson Clark currently has good capacity in amber glass, which as well as being visually appealing also has the added benefit of protecting the contents of the bottle from harmful ultraviolet light. Amber bottles contain more than 60 per cent recycled glass.
