In January, Fever Beverage USA introduced 14-oz Fever Original and Fever Low Calorie stimulation beverages in aluminum bottles supplied by distributor Zuckerman Honickman (www.zh-inc.com). CCL Container (www.cclind.com) manufactures the bottles and uses lithography as the decorating process. Silgan (www.silganclosures.com) makes the 38-mm metal screw cap that tops the bottle.
When Ontario, Canada-based Vincor Intl. began the process of releasing its Tabu Exotic Citrus beverage into the marketplace, it turned to CCL Container to create the signature brushed aluminum, long-neck bottle.
Aluminum containers continue to boost the energy drink category. Elements Beverage division of the Snapple Beverage Group, White Plains, NY, is using marketing alchemy to switch bottles of its Elements energy drinks from glass to aluminum.
