Pure Dutch Design

Due to its strong position in the restaurant segment, Sourcy is one of the most well known mineral water brands in the Netherlands.VBAT was briefed to develop a new iconic glass bottle – a clear reflection of the brand’s core values befitting of every dinner occasion, whether a high quality restaurant or mainstream outlet.

In recent years the brand’s packaging strategy has been to develop separate bottle designs for high quality and mainstream restaurants. Aside from high production and logistical costs, this has not helped maintain a clear brand image for Sourcy.

As a strong established brand coming from a single source the creative solution was to develop one iconic bottle, suitable for carbonated mineral water, respecting market colour codes and fitting within Sourcy’s current standard bottling lines. The new stylish outer shape is enriched with a deep embossed lens that serves as a podium for the brand’s lion emblem, which, together with the higher shoulders of this new bottle reflects the proud character of the brand going back to the essence, iconic without fuss, elegant yet understated.
