New Lightweight Bottle Design for Tiche's Nymph

Tiche’s Lithuanian mineral water bottle offers exceptional strength and attention to detail in its new 750ml bottle. Ardagh Group’s in-house design team developed the new bottle profile in response to Tiche’s detailed brief at their glass factory in Gostyn, Poland, where the bottle was also produced.

The new, larger 750ml bottle features the iconic Tiche crest, embossed with its ancient Nymph, carrying crystalline water straight from the heart of the Earth. This embossing has been optimised for the Narrow-Neck Press and Blow (NNPB) production method, which also reduces the weight of the glass packaging by 32%, helping to reduce environmental impact - an ongoing driver for Ardagh Group.

A key requirement was for the bottle to withstand a high carbonation pressure of 7g per litre, which was a challenge with the thin wall production method.

Barbara Macialczyk, Marketing Manager at Ardagh Group explains:

"The combination of two critical requirements – thin glass walls and high durability - was achieved using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) technology. Working in close collaboration with the customer, our sales and design teams have achieved an elegant and curvaceous bottle with a tapered label panel. It features the symbol of the Tiche Nymph and is embossed with the number ’689’ on the opposite side, indicating the depth of the source from which the water is extracted.

“We're delighted with how we’ve achieved a premiumised look through the embossed crest, whilst retaining strength in this new, lightweight bottle.”
