This bottle innovation is a first for Australia. A completely new, elegant, streamlined design that features a central handle for easier pouring gives a smoother ‘anti-glug’ flow of liquid. The ergonomics of the shape and innovative position of the handle make it easier to lift from the shelf and more comfortable to use. The deep, symmetrical sweep of the handle continues its elegant contours down to encircle the label panel. This emphasises the graphic presentation to great advantage. The centrally placed logo and label graphics reiterate the symmetry of the pack itself, and the overall result is novel, accessible and appealing.
