Luxco's Lord Calvert Canadian whisky has partnered Ducks Unlimited, a leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation. To celebrate the partnership, Saxco International has helped design a limited-edition decanter for Lord Calvert, which is now available in the US.
According to Larry Coomes, director of national accounts and cork packaging for Saxco International: “Saxco provided Luxco with a turnkey solution to conceptualise, develop and produce the decanter on time and on budget.”
“Saxco’s packaging design team worked closely with Luxco’s new product development and marketing teams to design the custom hand-painted ceramic decanter packaged in a beautiful gift box. The total solution also included a variety of different packaging types including the decanter with a bar top closure from a reliable quality overseas supplier and a full color corrugated gift box with a protective thermoform insert and printed corrugated shipping box from two long-time resource partners located in Indiana and Pennsylvania.”
Jim Walden, Saxco packaging and printing specialist says: “Each 750ml decanter is hand painted black, hand labeled and hand filled with smooth and flavouful Lord Calvert Canadian Whisky. Saxco ensured the entire package would not only protect the decanter, but would provide an amazing user experience with a terrific overall appearance.”
Fletcher Buchman, brand manager at Luxco says: “We are excited to partner with Ducks Unlimited and we support their mission to conserve and restore America’s wetlands. We are pleased to be donating a portion of the proceeds from our limited edition decanters to this organisation.”
Lord Calvert Canadian whisky brand, which is 80 proof and 40% abv recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. The suggested retail price for the 750ml decanter and gift box is US$99.99.
