Introduction - Bruni Glass Packaging

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My name is Leonardo Mocci and I represent Bruni Glass Packaging on the west coast US. I've been a member of this forum for some time now but never had the chance to properly introduce myself and the company I represent.

Bruni Glass is a leading company in the sector of manufacturing and marketing of high end specialty glass containers. We have been serving the spirits, gourmet food and wine markets for over 35 years now. Our bread and butter is the development of new product lines and our continuous research for more appealing glass packaging solutions, completely customizable, for our customers.

Our primary markets are Europe and North America. Our head office is situated in Milan, Italy but in North America we operate out of two locations, one in the US (California) and one in Canada (Montreal) with warehousing, showrooms, repack and QC lines and a full staff that can help you with any question you might have about what glass containers you would like to use next.

As a matter of fact, we offer a range of over 3,000 standard, specialty and personalized items, all accessible from our online catalog at www.bruniglass.com.

If you happen to come by the San Francisco Bay Area or through Montreal Canada, you are more than welcome to stop by our offices to view our exquisite showrooms and see how we can help you with your glass packaging needs.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me either on this forum or by email at leonardo.mocci @ bruniglass.com.

Thanks and hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving.

Hey there, Leonardo.

If you could, would you chime in on an ongoing conversation that we've had here for a while?

The issue is fill heights - is it possible to use a bottle for whine/sparkling, but use it for spirits if one uses a shorter cork? Would that satisfy the fill-height issues necessary for spirits bottles? I've had some good conversations about this with some people, but no definitive word on that one.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Dear Andrew,

We are not experts in corks but based on our experience we usually recommend Synthetic Cork Bartops rather than Natural Cork Bartops for spirits.

In fact there is a chance that in a clear bottle, with a natural cork, the cork can eventually release some residue after being used several times. That is not something nice to see in a bottle (cork floating on the liquid). The synthetic cork takes care of that. The only downside of the synthetic cork is its non-porosity, so when the product expands due to heat for example, if the recommended fill level of the bottle is not completely followed, the cork could end up being pushed out a little.

On that note I would like to point out that the fill levels reported on properly engineered bottles (bottom plate should always report the manufacturer's recommended fill height expressed in mm's) are very important and need to be followed for a proper application. More information on fill levels and bottle specs can be found on our website www.bruniglass.com by downloading our "Transparencies" Booklet, or click here (21Mb file. If you can't download it right click on the link and choose "Save Link As"). Once you download the file, go to the first section, the FAQ on glass and see question 58. It shows where to find the recommended fill level for the bottle.

Hope this helps.
