Speaking to BeverageDaily at LuxePack Monaco (September 30-October 2) Vijay Shah, vice chairman, Piramal Glass, said his clients include Diageo, Bacardi and Pernod Ricard and all his customers want better quality, lower prices and sustainable processes.
Our focus is on specialty spirits manufacturing we are not a special glass manufacturer for long-run, repeat business. We produce customised bottles for high-end spirits he said.
The trends we see are more craft distillers, and the launch of more specialty spirits. We have seen growth in local gin brands in Scotland, and more US craft distillers with local brands and they all need specialised glass bottles to be stand out from the crowd.
Bacardi and Diageo are launching more specialty liquors, people want more variety. Bombay gin has also launched a range of pre-mixed drinks.
