In October of 2017, there was produced the first batch of decorated bottles for our partner from Slovakia, GAS Familia Ltd. Now the popular vodka Goral, awarded for its perfect quality with numerous awards at international competitions, will be put in bottles made in Ukraine and decorated by DANKO DECOR. Pleased to note that the geography of delivery of our products is expanding and our new partner – a large alcohol company from central Europe can serve as a great example of this.
But let’s get back to the decoration of bottles GORAL Traditional. The central place in the decoration of the front of the bottle takes, in fact, goral (hence the name of vodka) – representative of a small ethnic group inhabiting the foothills of the High Tatras. A long history of the mountaineers begins its way from the XII century, as time goes they merged with the Poles, Czechs, Slovaks and even Ukrainians.
Gorals dress up beautifully and brightly. They actually try to stress their individuality in every possible way. Look at the decorated bottle GORAL Traditional. Our goral wears a snow-white linen koshulya (shirt), a tsyuha (sheepskin jacket), generously decorated with luxurious embroidery and, of course, a capelush (hat). In the hands of each self-respecting goral must definitely be a tsyupaga (carved staff with a knob in the form of a small ax). This item shows the ancient traditions of gorals, who once used the similar, but real axes for the household and for protection from enemies, and for cutting trees.
Probably, our goral is busy with the traditional work for the inhabitants of mountainous areas- grazing.
Complement the overall composition of the bottle decoration TM GORAL the tops of the majestic Tatry Mountains and the traditional goral ornament.
In the work of this project we applied the chemical etching of glass, using a matting composition, made by the “DANKO DECOR” company on special equipment, developed by the engineers of our plant on the basis of many years of experience and taking into account the most stringent environmental standards.
After chemical frosting the bottles were sent to the silk-screen printing workshop, where due to the excellent work of the prepress department and specialists of the printed service, we succeed to achieve a high level of detailing of design elements and accurate color rendering of the decor for this popular drink on the European market.
The bottles with the printed image were subjected to high-temperature roasting (600 °C) and sent to the packaging line, equipped with modern machines of the German company MSK.
At the same time, the first truck from Slovakia arrived for finished products. As always, decorated bottles were shipped to the customer on time “just in time”.
However, this is not the end of the story, but rather its beginning – the company “DANCO DECOR” has already started work on another order for GAS Familia Ltd!
