Five Wives partners with Berlin Packaging for premium bottle design

New design exceeds sale expectations

Five Wives vodka's new design is receiving good reviews

Launched in 2012, Five Wives quickly became a favorite among vodka drinkers in Utah, with three popular product lines. While the brand was finding success with its affordable, flavored vodkas, they soon realized the need to appeal to a premium spirit drinker.

Launching a new, high-end vodka line would mean packaging adjustments to a heavy-duty bottle with a premium look. Five Wives turned to Berlin Packaging and its Studio One Eleven design team for answers.

After rigorous research, Berlin Packaging presented Five Wives with six unique packaging options. Rather than choosing one, Five Wives decided to infuse elements from all six options into the final product. Berlin Packaging fused the design concepts together to create a bottle with branding consistent with Five Wives’ existing product lines, yet unique enough on its own to appeal to more sophisticated drinkers.

The newly launched Five Wives premium product is packaged in a long-neck, 750 mL super-flint glass bottle, offering consumers a view of the product clarity and reflecting the brand’s dedication to providing a pure, smooth product. The bottle also features a fully-frosted silkscreen graphic that wraps around the entire bottle, prominently showcasing the snow-covered Wasatch Mountain range, which is located adjacent to the Five Wives production facility. The bottle also maintains brand equity, featuring the brand’s signature Five Wives logo on the front of the bottle and a black and white illustration of the wives printed on the back.

Already, the Five Wives Premium line is receiving good reviews from customers and retailers, alike. The product is exceeding sales expectations in Utah, with plans in place to launch in nine additional markets in the future.

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 Asia is 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.
