O-I Glass recently expanded its portfolio with the introduction of the Drinktainer. The glass bottle was created for to-go services (like bars and restaurants) with a wide mouth that "combines the convenience of a glass bottle with the sensory consumption experience of a drinking glass."
Many consumers state that drinking from a can constricts the taste to the tongue, minimizes the aroma, throttles the flow, and distorts the mouthfeel. By removing these barriers with a wide-mouth design, restaurants can now elevate their customers' to-go experience.
“Drinktainer creates a new level of function for the drink-to-go category designed for fresh cocktails, or beer straight from the draft, in a sealable container,” said Sarah Brennan, Market Director for O-I. “The Drinktainer creates a single-serve vessel that removes the barriers of traditional containers to deliver the ultimate consumption experience, unlocking the beverage’s aromatic potential straight from the packaging—no extra glass needed.”
