Starpack success

Stölzle Flaconnage have been awarded Highly Commended in the Luxury & Gift Ware category of the 2012 Starpack Awards for the Johnnie Walker 21 Year Old X•R Whisky glass decanter. With its complex moulding requirements and use of flame polishing for the first time in prestige spirit bottles, the Johnnie Walker 21 Year Old X•R bottle introduces a step change in quality standards for this type of glass packaging.

Stölzle Flaconnage has raised the bar for Prestige Spirit bottles. The unique design of the Johnnie Walker X•R whisky decanter has been uniquely realised by STO. The clarity of the cosmetic quality flint glass, the multi-faceted effect of the bottle design, which culminates in a star shaped finish to the heavy base, the precise embossing of the X•R, all contribute to a stunning visual impact. Decoration requires five passes for front and back printing with hot metal gold blocking on the front together with a graphic design in the style of the KBE awarded to Sir Alexander Walker, grandson of the founder, printed in ceramic black on the back of the bottle. Flame polish adds the final aesthetic finish.

The Johnnie Walker X•R decanter promises that the contents are of the same superlative quality as the container. Stölzle Flaconnage is a member of the Stölzle Glass Group, its headquarters in Köflach, Austria, experts in both custom design and standard glass containers for Prestige Spirits and  the Perfumery and Personal Care markets. Stölzle Flaconnage’s upgraded decoration factory offers state-of-the-art technology including hot metal blocking and multi-colour spraying. Also available is a wide range of closures, making STO a one-stop-shop.
