One of the bottles of glass rewarded by his innovation and creativity is the Gize-bottle, produced by Or-I for the mineral water Gize, of Canadian Mineral Water SA (CMW). His design is work of the company Zweipunktnull, that works in collaboration with Or-I. “His design enhances the only quality of the product and the exceptional flavour of the mineral water”, explains the spokesman of CMW, Sibylle Erler. “Also they show that the glass is clearly the best option for our product of high quality. It is pure, inert and preserve perfectly the aroma and the minerals of our water”, adds Erler. The Gize has received this year a total of ten national prizes and international, between which stands out the Pentaward 2011 of gold.

Another Pentaward 2011 was for the bottle Vortex —one of the first examples of the new technology of Or-I for the recorded inner, that allows the application of muescas designed especially to go in the interior of the neck of the bottle. Also this year, the packaging Vortex has received an Industrial Design Excellence Award (IDEA), of the Industrial Designers Society of America. Amongst other, the system Vortex is used in the Miller Lite of the American brewery MillerCoors, for the Wahoo Premium Ale of the cervecera Australian Gage Roads Brewing Co and the beer Tui Blond Lager of the neozelandesa DB Breweries.

Other innovative designs of Or-I that have been categorizados of high range are the patents of Black Glass and Read+Green, in the category of the light containers. The line Three Kings of Independent Distillers, that presents in black glass of Or-I, has won recently the Silver Award in the category of drinks in the 2011 Australian Packaging Design Awards. To his time, the line of bottles of wine Read+Green of Or-I has been awarded in the prizes Innovation and Supplier of the Year by the Wine Industry Suppliers Australia (WISA).
