Packaging to make products stand out

Looks are important when it comes to packaging

Glass bottles on the shelfThe start of a new year is an opportune time to take a look at your business, check how well it’s performing and work out how it could be improved. An important factor to take in consideration for business success is product packaging. Although much attention is often paid to advertising products, the way a product is packaged makes a big difference to the consumer. A recent study by Nielsen found that, ‘Nearly 60% of product decisions are made at the shelf’, which shows that a product’s appearance plays a vital part in its success.

When it comes to product packaging, whether you sell juice drinks, convenience snacks, beer, spirits, home fragrances, toiletries or cosmetics, you need a container that is not only functional, but also works well with your branding and helps to encourage the consumer to buy it. At Ampulla we realise that looks are important when it comes to packaging, which is why we sell attractive containers that will help your product to stand out on the shelf. We’ve put together a selection of our most visually appealing packaging below.

New Eagle decanter bottle for high-flying spirits

Glass Eagle spirit bottle













Eagle decanter bottle

The eagle-eyed among you may have spotted the new addition to our family, a rare breed of packaging – the Eagle decanter bottle. All puns aside, this is a fine specimen of a bottle. These days, many glass spirit and liqueur bottles conform to the standard round shape, but the Eagle bottle is quite the opposite. This is a highly detailed bottle in the form of an eagle, complete with glass claw and feather outlines, eyes and a beak.

Eagle decanter bottleThe only thing that’s standard about the Eagle bottle is its capacity. At 700ml (70cl), it holds the same amount as your average spirit bottle. This makes it ideal for selling limited edition spirits and speciality liqueurs in. As well as having a cork stopper cap, the eagle’s head acts as a glass lid, which completely covers top of the cork. A novel feature of the eagle’s head is that it also holds the equivalent of a double measure of alcohol – great for serving at dinner parties.

With no minimum order requirements, the Eagle decanter bottle can be purchased in single quantities, as well as in larger numbers. This means that everyone can have a feathered friend – it’s not just for established drinks companies. As well as being handy for gifts, you could use the Eagle bottle to fill with your favourite spirit at home. It would make a great addition to any drinks cabinet.

Complete the set

Once you have your Eagle bottle, you’ll need a quality glass tumbler to decant your tipple into. Our glass votives, although often used as candle jars, are quality, heavy based glasses that are perfect for drinking spirits and liqueurs from. The drink-sized votives range from 5cl (50ml) up to 38cl (380ml), suitable for neat drinks or for adding mixers. Votives will add quality to bar and restaurant drinks and they’re ideal for selling with spirit gift sets too.

Swing top glass bottles – traditional yet trendy

Swing top bottles UK












Fed up with using crown caps to seal your glass drinks bottles? Sick of the sight of capping tools? Prefer to use a glass bottle that’s on trend, but still has a vintage style? We’ve got just the thing!


Swing top glass bottles

Glass swing top drinks bottleSwing top glass bottles were often used to bottle beer and water before crown corks were used. Their robust metal clasp with ceramic and rubber stopper was the perfect combination to create a strong, reliable airtight seal. This same seal can still be relied on today, as an alternative to crowns or screw on caps, with the advantage of being easy to wash and re-use.


The advantage of using a swing top bottle over other standard glass drinks bottles is that swing top bottles have a distinct style and a premium look about them. Our modern day glass swing top bottles are crafted from thick, quality clear glass, with a slight green tint and elegant faceted walls. They are suitable for a wide range of alcoholic and soft drinks, as well as oils and dressings, confectionery or even home and business décor.



Sizes available

Glass swing top bottles facetedOur glass swing top bottles are available in 250ml, 500ml, 750ml and 1 litre sizes, so you can use one particular size for a product or project, or you can offer customers a whole range of sizes. Swing top bottles are ideal for restaurants and cafes, for the likes of table water, wine or fruit juice. Alternatively, due to there being no minimum order quantity, you can use them for bottling your homemade traditional lemonade or sloe gin.


Due to being both trendy and traditional, glass swing top bottles are well suited to many different bars and restaurants, as well as artisan food and drink shops, farm shops, delicatessens, food markets and high end food halls. They’re perfect for packaging spirits, liqueurs, cocktails, ciders, wines, fruit juices, cordials, milk, milkshakes and many other drinks or speciality oils and dressings. Whichever you choose, swing top bottles will give your product an exclusive handcrafted appearance, rather than looking mass-produced.
