Meet the Frugal Bottle
The Frugal Bottle, made from 94% recycled paperboard with a food grade pouch, is five times lighter than glass, has six times lower carbon footprint and offers 360 degree branding for exceptional shelf stand-out.
The world’s first paper wine and spirits bottle.
Since launching in June 2020, the first wine in a Frugal Bottle from Cantina Goccia proved to be so popular it completely sold out twice, with one wine chain selling its whole stock in just one day.
Cantina Goccia now intends to sell half of their wines in Frugal Bottles.
Frugalpac has received enquiries from around the world to make Frugal Bottles for sake, wine and spirits in Japan, the US, Spain, Germany, Italy and France.
