Spirits landscape Switzerland
We live in an exciting time full of opportunities. Digitization and environmental awareness are just some of the frequent keywords we hear, but we live in a time of contrasts:
- Mindful drinking, health, less alcohol consumption, and sustainability
It is the opposite of:
- Drink better, drinking becomes an emotional experience.
As a result of the ever-faster pace of change, we are increasingly looking for authenticity, emotions, distinctiveness, unique moments and experiences and personal experiences in consumption.
In the beverage industry, society calls it The craft movement. Craft beer, craft spirit, craft wine…Switzerland is Craft, not just since the advent of movement. The Swiss spirits industry is diverse, authentic and unique. This can be seen above all amongst the participants of the DistiSuisse award.
What reactions does a personalized gin bottle trigger?
The study measured the spontaneous reactions of a personalized bottle. The results show that compared to an alternative with a label, the use of screen printing creates a particularly interesting impression about the perception of the authenticity of the product. The perception of authenticity increases by 10% over a label. Increased authenticity conveys honesty to the consumer.
The results also show that the use of screen printing on glass gives the product a sense of modernity.
Trust and honesty are the basic needs of every human being. A customer also wants to feel and see these basic needs in a company. Today’s customers don’t just go to a store to buy something, they go there because they want to experience something. You have to imagine it this way: if we are in a noisy hall, then we are looking for silence. In a world in which every day we are inundated with offers and products, we look for the real, authentic, honest!
Let us seize the opportunity and create together emotions for your customers for more common success.
Original gin bottles from Switzerland
#1 Crystal Gin – Swiss premium gin with a unique character
Swiss Crystal Gin is distilled in the heart of the Bern Oberland and refined using a special process. After a careful distillation process, the distillate passes over a crystal to finish.
The gin bottle: Rugen Distillery launched the Swiss Crystal Gin on 1 June 2016. The Crystal Gin gin bottle is unmistakable not only because of its shape but also because of its color. Since the distillate runs over a crystal to finish, it was obvious that the gin bottle should resemble a crystal. The color of the gin bottle reflects the purity of a crystal and the product. Univerre Pro Uva SA supported Rugen Distillery from the idea to the development of the gin bottle.

GinGin – A gin with a unique note!
In the nose, a discreet cocoa note and a light fruit aroma unfold, whereby a mild orange smell dominates. The sweetness and bitterness of the cocoa surround the palate and give the GinGin a unique note. The typical gin aromas as well as the exotic components like the aromas of citrus fruits and coriander stay in the background and provide a nice balance. GinGin is round, perfectly balanced and very palatable. The peculiarity of the gin should be underlined with a light tonic that is as neutral in taste as possible.
The gin bottle: A gin with a unique note needs a unique gin bottle. The gin bottle GinGin was personalized with real gold and 360° around the bottle with different motifs. A real piece of art for every gin or bottle lover.
