Exciting New Brands at Innoveat 2018

At Innoveat, we are on a constant quest to find and showcase exciting brands who have honed their product range for buyers in the travel and leisure industry. Here are three of the new brands coming onboard at Innoveat 2018.

Garçon Wines

Garcon Wine bottle in a box

The idea behind the brand

Frustrated by missed wine club deliveries while at work, co-founder Joe Revell noticed how his neighbour didn’t suffer the same problem with her Graze subscription boxes as they slid effortlessly through the letterbox. This led to his lightbulb moment and he teamed up with wine retailing entrepreneur, Santiago Navarro.

After much research around wine packaging and UK letterboxes, they created a vessel that can both be posted safely and easily, while still looking stylish on a dining room table. This design concept is also ideally suited to the travel industry where space is always at a premium and fragility is a key issue.

What makes them stand out?

Garçon’s innovative bottles blend tradition and modernity, conforming to the classic Bordeaux and Burgundy bottle shapes in which most wines are still sold. Their USPs are:

  • Made in the UK
  • Materials are 100% recycled PET and are also recyclable afterwards, making them the greenest wine bottles available
  • Tough enough to withstand the rigours of the travel industry
  • Light enough to keep delivery costs affordable and lower their carbon footprint
  • Flattened design makes them ideal for easy and compact storage
  • Special “oxygen scavenger” featuring both active scavenging and passive barrier technology give the bottles a much longer shelf life than other wine packaging solutions
