A new Caribbean rum tonic drink has recorded excellent sales since launching this summer in 200ml amber Winchester apothecary bottles made by Beatson Clark.
Wha Gwan is a ready to drink, 17.2 percent melon cherry rum tonic. Founder David Mills described the beverage as one of “the fastest growing new start-ups in the country at the moment.”
“For the packaging we wanted to work directly with a manufacturer, and Beatson Clark are one of the main players.
“Medicine-style bottles are proving very popular in the marketplace right now and rather than stand apart from them we wanted our new product to fit in with the rest of the sector.
Jonathan Clark, Account Manager at Beatson Clark, said: “The popularity of our vintage, retro-style apothecary bottles shows no sign of abating.
“Originally designed for pharmaceutical use, they lend brands an authentic apothecary look which is currently very popular in the craft spirits market. In addition the amber glass protects drink products from harmful UV rays, offering them a longer shelf life.”
