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.
