Origin breaks the mould with Stormhoek Stack

04 August, 2014

South African producer Origin Wine has launched a 75cl bottle of wine separated into four ready-to-drink glasses that can be snapped apart upon opening.

Stormhoek Stack comprises four 18.7cl stemless glasses piled on top of each other using what Origin calls “Stack Tek” technology.

It said the four glasses are “heat-sealed with peal-back foil lids and the entire stack is held together with a shrink sleeve label that has a tear-strip ‘zip’ for easy opening”.

Managing director Bernard Fontannaz said: “The unique Stack Tek technology offers consumers the convenience of a non-breakable, single-serve glass of wine while retaining the elevated image of wine in a stylish glass. 

“The Stormhoek Stack provides consumers with a practical, emotional and environmental benefit whilst enjoying their favourite wine wherever they choose and provides a unique point of difference at social occasions.”

The material used is said to look and feel like glass but is 50% lighter, shatterproof, recyclable and offers a shelf life of 96 weeks.

Origin is launching the concept initially in one variety – Stormhoek Stack Chardonnay – and it is available now in selected Tesco stores with an rrp of £7.49.
