Typical project phases

Brief and costing

We meet with you online or in person to discuss your company’s brief. Our in-house design experts and client relations team take note of everything from your branding requirements, to bottle capacity, originality, quantities, and delivery location. Once these have been established, Rockwood Glass will provide you with a price estimate for the mass production of your bespoke bottle.

 *Our teams can design a bespoke bottle for you even if you don’t plan on mass-producing your bottles in Rockwood factories.

Brainstorming & customization

Whether you would like to create a discrete, minimalist, and more traditional design, or a striking and eccentric bottle, the possibilities are endless. Choose from flint, super flint, black glass, or cobalt blue glass in a variety of shapes and sizes. And customize your bottle with serigraphy, silk-screening, embossing and de-bossing, engraving, Zamak features, spray painting, sand blasting, or accessories. 


3D bottle designs

Once the concept has been agreed upon, our 3D designers bring your unique bottle and cap designs to life for final approval. The prototype is then finalized and will serve as the mold for the production of your bottles.

Molds are created

Glass bottle samples are created from your mold within 45 days. They are then sent to you for your final approval. Each prototype and mold become the property (copyright) of your company. Molds are replaced at no extra charge once they sustain wear and tear from over-use (usually after 10 million bottles have been produced).

Production and bespoke finishings

The minimum order quantity (MOQ) is just 20,000 bottles per order. Mass production from mold creation to your completed order in up to 90 days. If you opt for unique hand-painted details or additional accessories, Rockwood artists will apply these to the glass bottles during the bespoke finishing stage.


Label design specifications depend on what best suits your bespoke glass bottle. Rockwood's creative team will work on the perfect fit, while also incorporating your brand’s style-guide specs. We provide optional high-security authentication labels for liquor and spirit bottles. These labels feature a hologram for instant visual authentication and can also be used with a smartphone app for secondary validation and enhanced user engagement. Developed in partnership with DeLaRu, a renowned global expert in product, currency, and service security.

Individual & bulk packaging

Multi-bottle cartons can be branded and are specially designed for easy mounting on your filling lines. Once filled, the bottles move along the line to be re-packed in the same cartons for transportation to your distributors. This lowers your labour costs and carton waste. Each carton fits between 6 and 12 bottles and has dividers to prevent bottle friction.

Need an attractive gift box?

We create premium packaging that is designed to showcase your bespoke bottle. Not only is it appealing, but it also encourages the consumer to touch the bottle and feel its unique artistic features.


Your unique glass bottles are on their way! They are guaranteed to ship within 15 days of bottle production & bottling, and will reach their final destination 30 – 60 days after shipment, depending on the location.

Rockwood has a globally connected logistics service that delivers bottles produced in its factories to over 80 countries!
