Spirits packaging

Cardboard tubes have long been used as packaging for spirits for a number of reasons. Not only does the cardboard spirits packaging add value to the product, but it also enhances brand awareness by standing out on the shelves or online.

In a growing spirits market, it’s crucial to have unique, premium packaging to attract both consumers and commercial customers. The material we use is durable and the design of the spirits packaging (including custom measurements to fit your bottle) help to protect the fragile glass inside, across the whole supply chain.

At Encircle, we’ll work closely with you to optimise your chosen design and provide guidance on how to benefit the most from bespoke packaging. Read our case study on Kinahan’s Whiskey here >>

Our spirit bottle packaging comes with a range of designs and closures, with each of them suitable for spirits such as:

  • Irish whiskey
  • Scotch whisky
  • Gin
  • Port
  • Vodka
  • Rum
  • Brandy
  • Tequila
  • Liqueurs

Tube options

Encircle offers three different tube designs for your products.

Standard Single Container

This comprises a single tube with a base and a lid at one end. Choose this option for the most cost-effective solution for packaging your biscuits or cookies.

Two-part Container

This design offers increased strength and a more premium top-shelf feel. Each part has a base and lid and slides into each other over the internal shoulder (spigot), giving a satisfying, crafted appeal to the package. Choose this option if you really wish to stand out on the shelves.

Telescopic Container

This premium double-walled design offers the highest level of protection for your fragile spirits with an exciting element of theatre upon opening. This type of cardboard biscuits & cookies packaging uses an inner tube with an outer tube placed over the top to form a closure. Choose this design if you’re looking to deliver an exciting unboxing experience for your customer.

For all of these cardboard spirits packaging options, you can expect:

  • Fully recyclable packaging
  • UK manufactured
  • Bespoke Sizes and Prints
  • Large printable area
  • Made from FSC approved material
  • All-cardboard options for easier recycling

Lid Options

Finally, each container needs a closure or lid. Select from the following options:

Curled End

The most environmentally-friendly solution for your cardboard spirits packaging because the entire tube can be recycled in a single waste-stream. The ends of the container are curled and a cardboard disc is secured in place. This gives the container a very neat and crafted look.

Metal

Metal ends and lids will provide your spirits packaging with style and strength, best suited for premium food products. A seamed metal end creates a permanent seal. Embossing lids with custom designs such as your logo is also an option we provide.

Plastic Caps

Provides the most effective closure system and is available in a range of sizes and colours. For a more permanent closure, caps can be stapled or riveted.
