Saint-Gobain Desjonqueres (www.saint-gobain.com) makes the 750-mL glass bottle which contains premium tequila. It sells for about $50 and is available in select markets says Yousef Zaatar vice president global packaging at Bacardi.

“Our goal was to create a super premium tequila and a package that’s in a class of its own” says Zaatar. He adds that the package is designed to reflect the modern art of Mexico. “It’s a true super premium offering—both product and package.”
