During the 2015’s Alufoil Trophy competition, organized by EAFA (European Aluminium Foil Association), Guala Closures has been awarded with 2 throphies.

Guala Closures has scooped an Alufoil Throphy for Technical Innovation in the 2015 competition for its range of “GCDS technology” customised aluminium closures for the wine market. Prior to their introduction, smaller wineries had to use standard ranges and colours for their closures, because of minimum order numbers required for bespoke printing, usually as high as 50,000 pieces.

Based in Fairfield, California, Guala Closures Design Studio (GCDS) technologies introduce a brand new concept from the company which has been developed to offer wineries in-house artwork creation and on-site production. The facility boasts state-of-the-art, fast output printing techniques combining digital printing, embossing and plasma technologies. Additionally they allow the application of colour, logos and artwork to any size of order for Guala’s patented screwcaps.

The second Alufoil Trophy  has been assigned to the new closure for Tanqueray No. Ten gin. The stunning aluminium closure designed and made by Guala Closures, greatly impressed the Alufoil Trophy 2015 judges, who had no hesitation in giving it an award in the Marketing & Design category of the competition.  The new Tanquerai No. Ten bottle re-pack features a closure which is a fine example of what aluminium can achieve as both a practical item and as a part of a total marketing concept.

Each element – the bottle shape, colour, band label and of course the aluminium closure all contribute to the stunning visual effect. This pack gives Tanqueray No. Ten a distinct advantage over competing brands. The premium closure for Tanqueray No. Ten demonstrates the real flexibility and elegance of aluminium for premium products.
