Wine and spirits company Biggar & Leith has introduced a Monte Stambecco 30th anniversary edition to the European market. The Amaro’s bottle is topped with an intricate zamak stopper.
For the 30th anniversary edition of Monte Stambecco’s Maraschino Amaro, Biggar & Leith opted to crown the Italian liqueur’s bottle with a detailed, high-shine stopper. The silver electroplated three-piece zamak topper was 3D modeled (Carl Fordham) and produced by TNT Global Manufacturing. Given its design - the stopper is shaped like the head of a mountain ram - demolding was a complex operation, according to the supplier, as was assembling and polishing the horns. A metal plate with stainless steel disc inside the hollow stopper allows for assembly with the red plastic cork.
The bespoke bottle (Vetri Speciale) sports a pattern engraved in the mold. Avery Dennison’s Fasson PP 120 Matt Wine was used for the label (Alba Grafica), which features touches of silver hot stamping. Both the bottle and label were conceived by independent designer Charmaine Choi. The bottle comes in a cardboard box with window cut-out (Cartotecnica Cambianese).
“With more and more interest in high-end collectible spirits, we believe that spending money and creating visually impactful packaging is a good way to market the brand. The bottle will look great on a backbar and consumers can also reuse the stopper with other bottles,” Biggar & Leith Founder and Owner Elwyn Gladstone tells Luxe Packaging Insight.
Monte Stambecco’s Maraschino Amaro 30th anniversary edition is priced at €70.
