Custom cardboard bottle boxes

If your business sells alcohol or other beverages, it is vital that your bottle packaging prevents costly damages during shipping.

Custom bottle packaging is used for the safe shipping of glass bottles. Typically manufactured from corrugated cardboard, bottle packaging can also include printing and various inserts. Packaging of this type is commonplace among breweries, distilleries, vineyards, and eCommerce sellers.

Our experts at GWP have over 30 years of experience designing and manufacturing packaging for bottles. All the bottle boxes we supply offer the highest levels of protection during transit. But our cardboard bottle packaging is also quick and easy to pack, the exact size and shape you need, can include printed branding and instructions, and is genuinely sustainable.

More info on cardboard bottle packaging

Whether your business is a microbrewery, craft Gin producer, regional distillery, eCommerce seller or even a large, well-established producer of drinks, your bottle packaging is vital to your success.

As such, you can source a wide range of bottle packaging suitable for beer, cider, wine, spirits, juices and other beverages.

Protecting bottles in transit

The term “bottle packaging” is quite broad, but it encompasses everything a producer of beverages could need for successful fulfilment and shipping of their produce.

Covering everything from shipping single bottles to large orders, gift and bottle carriers and even striking point of sale, you can benefit from having custom-designed bottle boxes tailored to your exact requirements.

Custom-designed bottle packaging

Regardless of the style of boxes you need, there are a wide range of options that you can select from to fully customise the performance, cost and appearance of your packaging.

Our designers can alter the material grade depending on the weight of the shipments (single wall for lighter packs, double wall for heavier, multi-bottle shipping boxes). You can also specify the actual sizes plus the design and style of the boxes. There is a wide range of styles for bottle carriers in particular.

Other options include printing, internal dividers and specialist products to protect against damage caused by mishandling.

Printed bottle packaging

You can add print to your bottle boxes for branding, handling instructions and warnings (i.e. Fragile). Striking designs and bold colours can even provide the wow factor for any eCommerce packaging or mail-order fulfilment.

Plus, if your bottles boast a unique style and finish, specialist coatings can be applied to the cardboard material to prevent surface scuffs and blemishes.

Bottle shipping boxes

Finally, you can use a range of box inserts and cardboard dividers to improve the protection of your bottle shipping boxes by minimising movement of the bottles. Bottle box dividers can also significantly improve your staff’s packing efficiency.

And if you are struggling with high volumes of breakages, foam end caps and lining can also be used for that extra level of protection.

Cost effective bottle boxes

As GWP Packaging only manufactures custom bottle packaging, we can offer two significant benefits to your brewery, distillery or fulfilment centre.

Firstly, you can buy genuinely cost-effective bottle packaging. And secondly, if you are still determining the best solution for your business, you can receive free, impartial advice and pre-production samples for testing. These benefits are in addition to free, no obligation quotes for any bottle or other packaging you require.

Bottle packaging FAQs

What size bottle boxes are available?

Bottle boxes can be manufactured to any size to offer optimum performance for your specific application. Custom sizes also mean you can source beer bottle packaging, spirit bottle packaging, and boxes suitable for wine.

What is bottle packaging manufactured from?

Bottle packaging boxes use a durable and robust corrugated cardboard material. The exact type and strength of material – single or double wall – is selected based on the weight of the contents. You can also choose between white and brown (kraft) finish for any bottle box.

Can bottle packaging be printed?

All bottle packaging can feature custom printing. Options can include simple one-colour logos, handling and care instructions, promotional messages or even full-colour, highly detailed illustrations and graphics.

What are bottle carriers?

Bottle carriers are boxes that typically allow easy carrying of several bottles at once. Used frequently in retail and as gift packaging, bottle carriers allow your business more flexibility when supplying beverages to your customers.

Can I order a single bottle pack?

GWP Packaging is a manufacturer of bespoke corrugated packaging. As such, MOQs (minimum order quantities) apply to all boxes supplied, including bottle packaging. If you are a non-business customer who requires a one-off box, the most cost-effective option is likely to find an eCommerce retailer selling these.

Do I need additional inserts for bottle shipping boxes?

Whilst you do not always need inserts or dividers, including them can help minimise damage caused by mishandling during transport. Foam end caps and linings can help to cushion your glass bottles. Packaging dividers can also help prevent damage by eliminating movement within the outer case and help with packing efficiency.

Is custom bottle packaging suitable for microbrewery and craft suppliers?

Many microbreweries, craft spirit producers, distilleries and even well-known brand names use GWP Packaging custom bottle boxes. If you are unsure whether they are suitable for your business, a member of the GWP team will be happy to advise.
