Select a bottle finish
The bottle finish plays an important part in the presentation of your products, and has become a differentiation tool. Each finish has its own personality! You will find a great variety in our catalogs, to help you give personality to your bottles of wine and spirits, and adapt them to the needs of the market.

a technical element
a differentiation tool

The finish, associated with the closure, is an essential element of the bottle. It plays a key role in the preservation of your products and therefore, requires particular attention in our industrial process. We perform many controls to guarantee the compliance with standards. It is also a very efficient differentiation tool. Adopting a different finish from the standard used on your market allows you to make your bottle powerfully stand out. For many of our customers, the finish now represents a major opportunity for personalization.

Finishes for
Still Wines

 

The choice of finish for your bottle will be linked to the type of closure you will select. However, there are many possibilities of wine closures (natural corks, synthetic corks, screw caps, Vinolok…) and some important technical parameters have to be taken into consideration, such as:

- The type of bottle used
The expansion space created by the closure and bottle combination needs to be sufficient to allow some temperature variations during shipping and storage. The finish dimensions are determined by the closure/bottle combination. Its length is usually either 49 ou 45mm. 

- The product cycle time
It is the time between the bottling and the consumption of the wine, based on the ageing potential of the wine.

 

  • The “plate unique” finish

This widely used finish on the still wine market is used primarily (although not exclusively)  on our entry level lines. It is well suited for standard sealing capsules.

  • The “carrée Bourgogne” classic finish

A standard for Burgundy-style bottles. This thick finish is perfectly suited for standard sealing capsules.

  • The “Carrée” finish

This thick finish gives a terroir and authentic look to the bottle. It requires specific sealing capsules available on the market.

  • The “Carrée Chardonnay” finish

An even thicker “carree” finish option, which is characterized by its diameter and the tall height of the ring. It is easily recognizable, but it requires a tin capsule. 

 

  • The “Plate FA” finish:

Used on all our modern and innovative bottle shapes, it is compatible with a Vinolok closure, which makes it appealing for rosé wines. Its unique profile comes from its height and the absence of a ring. It is compatible with standard capsules. You will often see it in our catalog, particularly in our New Concepts, and Avant-garde Collection, as well as our Bourgogne Maxima, Bordelaises Byblos, Bellissima Wine, Constance lines…

  • The “Plate” finish

This finish brings elegance and distinction to the bottle. It is recognizable by its low profile and a pronounced ring. It requires special capsules that are widely available.

  • The “Distorted Plate” finish

Created by Saverglass, this «retro» looking finish is inspired by the imperfection of past mouth-blown bottles.

  • The “Flange” finish

This delicate finish gives a fresh look to the lines of a bottle while making it look old-style, return to origins.

  • The “Cordon” finish

This wide and round finish is a new take on an old finish, giving your wine the distinct look of a “terroir” wine.

  • The “Double Cordon” finish

Created by Saverglass for the Bourgogne Terroir model, this finish reinterprets the traditional codes and offers a modern version of the Cordon finish with its 2 uneven cordons, to reflect the richness and the string identity of terroir wines.

  • The “Fleur” finish

A new finish proposed by Saverglass. Its high and flared profile give your bottle a strong identity and elegance. The Fleur finish gives our model Sabine a spectacular flair.

  • The “Lotus” finish

This tall and flared finish profile is exclusive to Saverglass and gives a silhouette both originality and harmony.

  • The “Iloise” finish

A tall finish with a traditional design, created for the prestigious vintage Port wines. It ensures complete sealing to guarantee the quality aging and produce a smooth wine, rich in refined flavors.

  • The screw finish

produit-bague-bvs

 

This finish meets the new consumer demand for practicality. The screw finish makes opening - or closing - a bottle both effortless and safe. To adapt these new consumption trends, Saverglass now offers a wide variety of models with screw finishes. The screw finish is a technical finish, which requires a particular attention during production as well as during capping. Two types of screw finishes are on the market: BVS 30H60 (the largest standard) and BVS 31.5H60 (the higher-end option) for either long or short capsules.

  • The MCA2 finish

This finish was developed to withstand the pressure of a low-carbonation wine (less than 4g of CO2). It is used in particular on our Bourgogne Prestige line.

Finishes for
Sparkling Wines

Carbonated wines, more commonly called sparkling, are characterized by the presence of dissolved carbonic gas which creates varying internal pressures in bottles. The bottles for sparkling wines are therefore fitted with specific finishes to withstand the pressure.

 

  • The 29mm crown

The widest standard finish on the sparkling wine market. Its design is perfectly adapted to the technical processing of sparkling wines. Our compliance to specifications requires our constant attention during our manufacturing process.

  • The crown and carrée finish

This exclusive Saverglass finish offers character, distinction and luxury to sparkling wines. In addition to its aesthetic attribute, this hybrid finish brings versatility to both the tirage process (use of a capsule or a cork) and the capping process (wire, staple or string). It can also easily be embossed for added personalization.
 

Finishes for
Spirits

 

For spirits, just like for wines, there are several closure solutions. The choice of closure is an aesthetic, technical and marketing choice.

Natural cork closures are typically preferred for brown spirits like Cognac’s or Whisky’s, while synthetic corks or screw caps tend to me more popular for white spirits such as vodka. Finally, decanters designed for more prestigious spirits, which will be used over a longer period of time, are more generally fitted with flanged finishes named “carnette”. Screwcaps are typically found on bottles that will be consumed more quickly, however some countries have a cultural preference for screwcaps.

 

 

 

 

  • The “Carnette” finish

With its distinctive profile, the Carnette finish brings a commanding look to a decanter or a bottle. It can be more or less wide, more or less round, more or less pronounced, but it will always give the product the high-end appearance of an exceptional product. This strong differentiation potential explains why the carnette finish, which used to be only used with decanters, can now be found on more and more of our bottles.

  • The “Plate” finish

This is the most commonly used finish in our spirits catalog. It allows for the closure of the bottle or decanter with a T-shape cork.

  • The “Distorted Plate” finish

This type of Plate finish found on our Exception line recalls the style of past finishes, which were mouth-blown and could sometimes be imperfect.

  • The “Plate Bouchon à Tête” finish

An iconic finish, found on our iconic Ariane line as well as on the Cognaçaise line. It’s a plate finish for a T-shape closure with a small notch in the ring which originally was used by distillers and winemakers to close the bottle with a string.

  • The “Extra-High Plate” finish

A version of the plate finish which is tall (22 mm) and elegant, to help your product differentiate. You will find it in particular on our Insolence Spirit line.

  • The “Plate FA” finish

A versatile finish we use both on spirits and on wine bottles, for example on our Bellissima line or Flute Altus Distillateur line. Its profile is different from that of the Plate finish, and makes it easier to use for wines.

  • The “GPI Screw Finish”

A convenient screw finish to be able to repeatedly close a bottle. It can be found on many key items: Oslo, Kendo, Neos... we offer it in several sizes: 400/28, 400/33 and even more recently in 400/38 for the Mixologist line.

  • The “BVP Screw Finish”

 

This finish can be found on miniatures (BVP 18 STD is the most widely used) as well as on other formats, like 700 ml’s (BVP 31.5 H 60 mainly). Like all screw finishes, it gives the consumer the ability to open and close the bottle repeatedly. Like the BVS finish for wines, it is a technical finish which requires particular attention during production as well as bottling. 

  • The “MCA2” finish

A common finish for such carbonated products as sparkling water fro example. We offer it in particular on our Hdozo line.

  • The “Europa” finish

This finish allows our ThaÏ line to be closed with a screw overcap which makes this design stand out. This finish comes from the world of perfumes, where it is quite common in particular for Colognes.
