Ocean City, MD – O.Berk Company has been awarded Best of Show at the 2017 National Association of Container Distributors (NACD) Packaging Awards for Seacrets Distilling Company’s Spiced Rum Bottle.
The unique keepsake bottle features the Seacrets embossed logo overprinted with screen printing A copper colored metal medallion of the Seacrets pirate ship lends a distinctive and recognizable element to the packaging. Just in Time fulfillment ensures the bottles are labeled with individual SKU information prior to digital label application, customized to reflect each of the 10 flavors in the product line. A custom box featuring coordinating graphics is also supplied for single bottle servings as a gift carton for customer sales at the Seacrets Distillery.
A unique collaborative effort between O.Berk and Piramal Glass produced exactly what Seacrets Distilling envisioned in its product packaging. Once the packaging design was conquered in 2-D on paper, O.Berk stepped up to create the potential keepsake with twenty-first century technology. They provided true-to-life 3-D printed models, allowing for test reaction to the design before committing to production.
