    RPC shakes things up for Funkin Cocktails

    Two RPC sites are collaborating in the production of a new shaker pack that allows consumers to produce the perfect cocktail in the home.

    Funkin Cocktails supplies its all-natural syrups, fruit purees and cocktail mixes to some of the best bartenders. Produced for the retail market, the Cocktail Shaker range offers a quick and easy way to make great cocktails, with the fruit mixture for a variety of recipes in a special pack in the shape of a traditional cocktail shaker. Consumers use the cap as a measure to add the relevant amount of spirits, along with some ice, and then shake.

    The shaker pack, which was designed by Air Innovation, is extrusion blow moulded in multilayer polypropylene by RPC Promens Consumer Corby and the lid and measuring cap injection moulded by RPC M&H Market Rasen. RPC Design worked on the technical aspects of the pack, including the provision of strengthening rings and hoops, to ensure the finished bottle could withstand the rigours of both hot and cold filling, depending on the requirements of the different mixtures.

    Careful attention was also paid to ensuring an effective seal between the cap and the lid, and the lid and the container so that no liquid leaks out during the shaking process

    The container’s PP/EVOH/PP construction creates an effective barrier to preserve the quality of the fruit mixtures. For high-impact branding and on-shelf appeal, the pack features an eye-catching full-length shrink sleeve and an embossed Funkin logo on the shoulder. The lid and cap are produced in metallic silver polypropylene to match the graphics on the shrink sleeve.
