Owens Illinois (O-I) has been awarded the WorldStar Award for its cachaça Yaguara bottle at the WorldStar Awards 2015.
Part of the O-I Covet range, the Yaguara bottle is produced in O-I’s plant in Soacha, Colombia.
It was created in partnership with UK artist Brian Clarke, and was inspired by the sidewalks of Copacabana.
Organised by the World Packaging Organization, this year’s WorldStar Awards were held during the IPACK-IMA fair in Milan, Italy, awarding 148 winners from 33 countries.
"We have been very pleased with the continuing attention and awards that the Yaguara bottle has gained in many markets," said Stephanie Johnston, Covet's general manager.
"We think of this beautiful bottle as a business card for Covet.
This WorldStar award reinforces our commitment to continue breaking the boundaries to connect with consumers in a powerful way that only glass can do."
Yaguara is currently available in Brazil, North America, and the U.K.
