Global Sourcing Case Study

Mother of Pearl Vodka

Founders Nic and Nicola Thompson-Hancock came to Plasdene with a clear vision for their new product launch; Mother of Pearl ~ Vodka of the Sea. A premium grape-based vodka that showcases what the world loves about Australia, our oceans, landscape, lifestyle, and ease of style. The vision was to create a Vodka complimenting the Australian South Sea Pinctada Pearls, and representative of the natural beauty and pristine waters of the area. They needed a stand out bottle to meet their discerning brand expectations, targeting the sophisticated female, across an international distribution market. Ideally the bottle would be slimline, feminine, distinctive and of uncompromising quality. It should also align to the deep passion for the brand values and image, one of beauty and connectivity with nature.

How did Plasdene Glass-Pak help you through the process. i.e., Their experience, facilitating introductions to additional suppliers, etc.

The introduction to Label Makers (Le Mac) has been invaluable. Sleeving our Lolita bottle (supplied by Plasdene) has enabled Mother of Pearl to be agile in producing sleeves to fit with differing international alcohol regulations. It also reinforces our environmental standpoint and enables our vendors to hit their sustainability targets and expectations for recyclability.

The elegantly wave shaped bottle is wrapped with a removable recyclable shrink sleeve, maintaining both appeal and recyclability simultaneously.



This approach encourages recycling and, most importantly, reuse of our bottles by offering our partners ‘Airlines’ International Hotels and Hospitality Groups especially, as a rebate on future orders on the return of bottles. The opportunities for innovation via sleeves assist’s our partners to meet their targets and expectations for recyclability.
