Cheers – RHIEM develops packaging sets for Berentzen-Guppe AG

Glasses and bottles – RHIEM Group develops standout gift packaging for the Berentzen Group.

Berentzen_Mixxes_Hugo-300x420A matching glass for the new mixed drink: consumers like to serve their guests drinks in a special glass or to shine at a party by making a tasteful and practical gift. This is why the Berentzen Group goes for packaging sets that stand out. The drinks manufacturer from Haselünne near Osnabrück has worked with the RHIEM Group before, benefiting from their ideas and experiences in design. The latest offspring born of this fruitful relationship is the elegant gift packaging for the new mixed drink “Berentzen Mixxes”, a variation of the trend drink, Hugo.

The Berentzen name has been a byword for classic spirits and fruit liqueurs for over 250 years. Refreshing fruit juices, trendy vodka, tasty cream liqueurs or classic wheat schnapps – whatever your tipple, the Berentzen and Puschkin brands provide the perfect taste experience to accompany a variety of occasions. In the 70s, the drinks and spirits manufacturer from Emsland became well known all over Germany for its apple schnapps: since then the Berentzen Group has developed an international presence and sells its speciality spirits in over 40 countries. The Group regularly creates new non-alcoholic thirst-quenchers and high proof mixed drinks. To conquer additional target groups and win over new customers, packaging matters. The Mixxes Set, made from cardboard with a plastic window, is just one example of how RHIEM skilfully combines materials, design shapes and finishing techniques to manufacture drinks packaging. Though each set developed for their client Berentzen bears its own face, the similarity between the Berentzen and Puschkin brand families is also stressed.
