STO whisky bottle nominated for German Packaging Awards & UK Luxury Packaging Awards

In 2014 David Beckham entered the Whisky scene by endorsing the marvellous Single Grain Scotch Whisky manufactured in cooperation with the premium drinks company Diageo, at Cameronbridge Distillery - the oldest grain distillery in Scotland. It was an honour for Stölzle to be involved in this unique and challenging decanter design manufactured in cobalt blue which draws on a history of bottles produced by the House of Haig, including the Haig Dimple Bottle, recognisable the world over.

Recently, the stunning blue whisky decanter gained further international recognition having been shortlisted both in the German Packaging Awards and the UK Luxury Packaging Awards in the category Drinks. The jury’s decision was predominantly based on the technically perfect glass quality. As is known within the glass industry blowing this kind of deep blue glass in fully automatic production is challenging but a beautiful homogenous finish was achieved. Our British production site of Stölzle Glass Group proved its expertise and Haig Club was successfully launched in the UK.
