Winner of the WorldStar Awards 2013: Johnnie Walker 21 Year Old X·R Whisky Dekanter

This WorldStar award crowned the triumphant year 2012 with no fewer than three packaging awards for STO.

Stölzle believes the key is innovation. Johnnie Walker X•R was the first Prsetige Spirit bottle to be flame polished, a final aesthetic touch to complex moulding abd five pass decoration.

The stunning decanter, designed to complement its 21 year old contents, challenged STO with its complex moulding requirements involving folded panels, a star-shaped base and an embossed X•R. Five passes were needed to produce ceramic printing on the back and precious gold metal screen printing on the front plus a lacquer finish. The decanter was baked at high temperature for a result that withstands high speed filling lines. Flame polishing, used for the first time on a premium spirits bottle, provided the final aesthetic touch.

Winner of the British Starpack Awards 2012: Johnnie Walker 21 Year Old X·R Whisky Dekanter

Stölzle Flaconnage have been awarded Highly Commended in the Luxury & Gift Ware category of the 2012 Starpack Awards for the Johnnie Walker 21 Year Old X·R Whisky glass decanter.

With its complex moulding requirements and use of flame polishing for the first time in prestige spirit bottles, the Johnnie Walker 21 Year Old X·R bottle introduces a step change in quality standards for this type of glass packaging. Stölzle Flaconnage has raised the bar for Prestige Spirit bottles.

The unique design of the Johnnie Walker X·R whisky decanter has been uniquely realized by STO. The clarity of the cosmetic quality flint glass, the multi-faceted effect of the bottle design, which culminates in a star shaped finish to the heavy base, the precise embossing of the X·R, all contribute to a stunning visual impact. Decoration requires five passes for front and back printing with hot metal gold blocking on the front together with a graphic design in the style of the KBE awarded to Sir Alexander Walker, grandson of the founder, printed in ceramic black on the back of the bottle. Flame polish adds the final aesthetic finish. The Johnnie Walker X•R decanter promises that the contents are of the same superlative quality as the container.

Winner of the German Packaging Award 2012: Johnnie Walker Blue Label

On Monday 24th September in Nuremberg, the coveted 2012 German Packaging Awards were announced. This year’s Retail Packaging award was won by the brilliant Johnnie Walker Blue Label glass decanter.

The decanter was developed and produced by Stölzle Flaconnage, British production site of the Internationally renowned Stölzle Glass Group. It was a tough challenge to develop a decanter which could reflect perfectly the brand’s exquisite blended Scotch Whisky. The packaging was redesigned with a clear intention of increasing the shelf presence to the consumer. For the brand Stölzle Flaconnage has developed an exclusive glass colour: Blue-Label-Blue.

The heavy 1.5 kg decanter is characterised by the evenness of its glass distribution and high brilliance, both achieved through STO’s mastery of the complex moulding and production techniques required.

Winner of the German Packaging 2010: Oval Vodka

It took more than a year and an ambitious team of designers and technicians to develop a Prestige decanter as precious as its content: Oval Vodka. After 4 years of development the uniquely structured Oval Vodka starts to conquer the world markets in Vienna.  The brand new distillation technique is called “structuring”. In this process the normally freely moving alcohol and water molecules will join and form a unique crystalline structure. Compared with other distillation techniques, this one is bare of creating unpleasant additives and the embrace of the alcohol by the water results in an absolutely smooth and harmonic taste.

The unique STO glass decanter is a tetrahedron with 3 large oval faces which resembles the molecular structure of the Vodka. This sophisticated design of the bottle required the implementation of specially designed tools on Stölzle’s IS machines.
