GPS Global Brands is a Business Development Co. focused on providing luxury single-serve options for the wine industry, and other premium categories, such as RTD cocktails and emerging categories. Matt Wood, CEO, and the GPS team, worked closely with Ardagh Group to design and develop its new 187ml wine bottle used for multiple brands to bottle single servings.

“Luxury single-serve gives premium brands a new opportunity to connect with customers in the vital by-the-glass space, while providing a range of new sales channels,” said Matt Wood, CEO of GPS Global Brands. “Our customers are drinking less, but better. Since glass is the only vessel for fine wine, we went to the leading glass manufacturer for wine bottles, Ardagh Group. Their professional design team helped us bring our patent-pending format to life and allowed us to proudly make it right here in the USA.”

Enhancing the appeal of the bottle’s convenient format design is the glass bottle’s status as a 100% infinitely recyclable package, something of importance to GPS Global Brands.

Glass bottles are 100% and endlessly recyclable, and they can go from the recycling bin to the store shelf in as little as 30 days. Glass wine bottles preserve the true taste of the product and deliver great shelf appeal and brand differentiation in a premium, sustainable package.

“Ardagh Group enjoyed collaborating with GPS Global Brands to create this new 187ml single-serve wine bottle, incorporating GPS’s vision and Ardagh Group’s New Product Development team’s design and manufacturing expertise to create something unique to the industry,” said Jeff Oberti, Vice President of Sales for Ardagh Direct. “This bottle was designed to run efficiently on both manufacturing and filling lines, in addition to being aesthetically pleasing to the eye.”
