We’ve seen them used for domestic beers, such as Bud Light. These aluminum bottles are actually very environmentally friendly. But are they good for wine too?
FLASQ is the first domestic wine to be bottled in these 100% recycleable, quick-chilling aluminum containers. FLASQ is a product of JT Wines, based out of St. Helena, California. JT Wines says these new bottles are targeting “Millennials, Generation Xers, and Baby Boomers with active lifestyles who desire convenient and portable packaging—all with a modern flair.”
I doubt I would ever purchase wine in an aluminum bottle, although there is a revolution with craft beer makers bottling in aluminum. A couple of my favorites are Maui Brewing Company (Maui, HI) and Oskar Blues (Lyons, CO). We’re seeing more and more craft beers in aluminum cans as the smaller breweries adopt the technology.
Although environmentally friendly, this is one bottle you won’t find on my table.
