Highland Park Bottle Design Chronology

Postby Bud Light » Tue Jul 01, 2008 4:29 am

I am having some difficulty in finding out when exactly was that Highland Park made the transition in design from wide mouth bulky bottles (I liked those), to those other ones, and then finally to the most recent Listerine mouth wash bottle design. Can anyone give me the exact chronology? Thanks lads.

Very roughly, the wide mouth ones stopped around 1999 ish and the flat ones we have now kicked off 19=8 months ago with the intermin ones ... in the middle.

All very approximate.

Thanks Dog. 1999 was the year when the Edrington Group took over, so it makes sense.

Good question Nick. Is there a consensus about this on the board? I wish I kept those wide mouth ones, because I really liked them. They create a nice sound when pouring a dram.

Definitely the pre 1999 one still looks classy, stylish and modern to me. Yet I suppose they have to give marketing department something to do ..... :roll:

I'm not sure it looks modern Adrian, but then that's one of the reasons I like it. Classy and stylish, definitely. :thumbsup:

Well I suppose what I was trying to elude to is that it would not look out of place on the shelves today ..... I do think some brands need updating but I hate the way they change bottles just because there is a change of ownership or they want to bump up the price 20% but hey I'm just a Joe Soap smuck .....
