Literally dubbed the Slim Wine Bottle Can, this resealable aluminum bottle is ideally designed for wines. Much lighter and less bulky than glass bottles and easier to carry, this bottle can present new styles and opportunities of drinking wines. While its appearance represents a premium feel that conventional wine bottles have, the single-serve (300ml) bottle does not require the cumbersome task of uncorking and is ideal for an on-the-go lifestyle including outdoor leisure and traveling. Through the sales via such casual distribution channels as supermarkets and convenience stores, the aluminum bottle wine is expected to create a new customer base among consumers who are otherwise not so familiar with drinking wines.
