Philosophy

We believe that the first impression of any consumer, from the opening bottle ceremony until the final tasting, is essential.

Everyday, our customers are more and more interested in packaging, a key element to position their products. Selecting the material, its design and the quality of the final product are the key elements for closing a bottle.

The single piece Tin Capsule, delicate, is the honest and loyal representation of the work made at any winery or spirit producer: patience, production, tradition, quality and bottle ageing.

History and origins

From latin “stannum”, Tin has been known for thousands of years as a luxurious and malleable element. Tin has managed to gain respectability in the glassworks, jewellery and goldsmithing sectors.

Historically high quality bottles produced by the European nobility and plugged with a natural cork, were protected with wax (to prevent damage from rodents in the old cellars of the house), which was sealed with the shield weapons producer for control and identification. This was the origin of the capsule we know today, and serves as a mark of distinction and brand of the producer.

Lead eventually replaced the seal, until it was prohibited on all packaging in the late twentieth century.

The Tin Capsule is used for the most prestigious Wines & Spirits, reaching perfection in the image transmitted.

Tin, malleable, noble and pure, adapts perfectly to unique bottle designs, reproducing elegantly the original stamp that gave origin the noble profession of closing up bottles excellently.

The luxury of an exclusive wine.

Process

The embossed tin capsule fullfills the most exigent quality regulations. It is done with a high purity material, and the process is done in three key stages.

Melting and laminating
Tin lingots, carefully selected among the best, are introduced into the melting oven and gets laminated through a rolling system. The rolls then pass through a revolutionary cleaning system that eliminates all the dirt.

Punching
Laminated tin rolls go into the punching presses, and after several impacts they get the dimensions of the capsule desired.

Inking
First, the background colour is applied by spraying. This is followed by silk-screen printing of the skirt, and finally, the top can either be silk-screened or embossed.

Aluminum capsules

Single- piece, light and elegant

The single-piece Aluminum Capsule is formed with the same techniques used to create the Tin Capsules (punched). As a premium product, Aluminum gives a refined finish, while being highly recyclable.

  • Single-piece capsule, without seam.
  • Due to the aluminum, the top embossing is deeper and highly defined.
  • Ecological printing process, due to the water-based inks.
  • The special “Easy opening”, avoids any risk of cutting.
