Essence 42 is a bottle design concept suitable only for the most high-end spirits, ideally for Cognac, Armagnac or whiskey brands.

The bottle is presented in two executions – the more luxurious, fully coated version, with laser removed drop shaped center for a more vintage range and the gradient coated version. Both executions are suitable only for expensive ranges of spirits due to high unit cost.

The closure can be made from zamak or metallized plastic. Zamak is suitable for smaller manufacturing runs, while metallized plastic generally fits only very high volume productions. Glass, decoration and closures have to be produced all at different manufacturers, so logistics, timing and inherent premium pricing has to be considered for the final product.
