Hazlitt introduces new three liter flexible AstraPouch

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards has released its best-selling wine brands, Red Cat and White Cat, in a three liter Astrapouch. An innovative new packaging technology, the stand-up, refrigerator-friendly pouch is attractive to consumers due to portability and increased shelf life of the wine after opening. The Red Cat and White Cat Party Pouch also offers an eco-friendly reduction in packaging waste.

Additional benefits of this non-breakable package include faster chilling and offers no waste for at home or on-premise service by the glass. It provides a cost-effective and lightweight alternative when compared to four 750 ml or two 1.5L bottles.
