THE FLAT WINE BOTTLE

The wine bottle hasn't changed in two centuries and is no longer fit for purpose.

Here’s how we're bringing the wine bottle into the 21st century world of complex supply chains, online sales and climate change

Modern and Traditional

Bordeaux inspired

Strong shoulders respect the heritage and tradition of the wine industry by conforming to the Bordeaux shape that consumers know and love; the bottles look beautiful and could be proudly placed on any dining table.

FLAT

40% spatially more efficient

Challenging the base assumption that wine bottles should be round has allowed us to create a bottle that is 40% spatially more efficient, offering many space-saving benefits. Considerably more bottles fit on a pallet which increases the efficiency of wine transportation to cut costs and carbon emissions.

Flat bottles are stackable, also saving space in consumers' homes and places where space is at a premium.

HOW is flat more sustainable?

CLIMATE CHANGE

Lightweight

Lightweight, at 63g, the bottles weigh 87% less than their glass equivalents, saving 500g of CO2 per bottle across the supply chain, and saving money in the process. We're reducing the carbon footprint of the wine industry allowing our customers drink to the health of our planet.

PLASTIC SMART

Our flat wine bottles are made of pre-existing plastic

Using 100% post-consumer recycled PET ensures no new plastic is created and creates a value for plastic already in circulation, mitigating against it from ending up in the environment.  rPET is the food-safe plastic commonly used in drinks bottles, which has no impact on taste, is durable and feels like quality, eliminating breakage and spilled wine.

100% Recyclable

Designed for full and easy recycling

A product is much easier to recycle if all its components are made from the same material, which is why we use plastic labels and screw caps. No complications associated with the collar from a standard aluminium screw cap which makes it harder to sort and recycle.

HOW WE're Tackling plastic pollution
