Coca-Cola launches crafted mixers in sleek Hutchinson glass bottles

Re-launch of iconic bottle

Coca-Cola Signature Mixers in Hutchinson glass bottles

Global beverages major Coca-Cola has launched a new range of crafted mixers designed to be enjoyed with dark spirits. Coca-Cola Signature Mixers will be hitting UK market in June, in a sleek Hutchinson glass bottle, a nod to the silhouette of the first ever Coca-Cola bottle.

Coca-Cola Signature Mixers will be available in four flavor combinations, which have been crafted by some of the world’s most innovative mixologists. The four flavors are Smoky Notes, by Max Venning; Spicy Notes, by Adriana Chía and Pippa Guy; Herbal Notes, by Antonio Naranjo; and Woody Notes by Alex Lawrence.

Coca-Cola Signature Mixers are served in a contemporary Hutchinson glass bottle, which was first used by Coca-Cola in 1894 when product was bottled rather than served at a soda fountain. This is the first time that Coca-Cola has re-released the bottle in more than a century.

Hutchinson bottles, the first bottles for Coca-Cola, were used from the mid-1890s to the early years of the 20th century. The bottles derived their names from the metal stopper device used to seal them. The stopper contained a seal at the neck. To open the bottle, the consumer punched down on a metal loop in the stopper, which broke the seal and made a popping sound. That’s what gave ‘soda pop’ its name. After the turn of the century, the Hutchinson stoppers were gradually phased out and replaced by bottle caps or crowns.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
