The 8 essential services for your spirit or liquor brand:
1. Glass or ceramic bottle design and manufacturing:
Ranked among the top 5 bespoke glass bottle manufacturers globally, Rockwood Glass transforms your vision into reality. Whether you seek minimalist elegance or bold eccentricity, our array of glass bottles – from flint and super flint to black glass and cobalt blue glass – offers limitless possibilities. Customization is key, with options like serigraphy, silk-screening, embossing, engraving, and more. And for a truly unique touch, delve into limited-edition ceramic bottles, where creativity knows no bounds.
2. Label design & Duty-Free Zone benefits:
Our dedicated creative team takes your brand's essence and translates it into captivating labels that harmonize with your bespoke bottle and premium alcohol. High-security authentication labels, featuring holographic elements for enhanced visual and user engagement, are also at your disposal. And remember, thanks to our Duty-Free zone status, your labels are free from obligatory references to China, allowing the country of origin of the spirit or liquor to take center stage.
3. Corks & closures:
The finishing touch matters and Rockwood ensures your bottles are sealed in style. With a range of closure heads in various materials, including ceramic, wood, metal, and plastic, your brand's identity is preserved down to the last detail. Flexible options for cork materials cater to your product's unique needs and budget.
4. Development and distillation of spirits and liquors:
Our history of crafting premium spirits underpins your journey. We partner with distilleries around the globe (such as The Netherlands, France, USA, Colombia, and Cuba) to curate artisanal and blended spirits that are later paired with bespoke bottles designed by our highly skilled in-house teams at Rockwood Glass and Rockwood Ceramics.
Choose from our stock, provide your bulk liquid, or entrust us to produce alcohol according to your recipes.
Nestled within a state-of-the-art bottling plant in a Duty-Free Zone near Shanghai, Rockwood Bottling Solutions ensures the utmost quality and authenticity. Thanks to our location, you are not obliged to make any reference to China on your spirit and liquor bottle labels. You just need to mention the country of origin of the actual alcohol. So, for example, Vodka shipped from France in bulk and reduced to 40% ABV will retain "Product of France" on the label, accompanied by the name of the company importing the product to the final destination.
There are 2 semi-automatic lines for uniquely shaped bottles and 2 fully automated lines with a bottling speed of 2,500 bottles per hour.
6. Case packaging:
From minimalist craft cases to opulent, full-color packaging, our range accommodates your aesthetic aspirations.
