Gizmo mixes in the bottle for fresher tea

April 22
10:06 2013

Gizmo is a new closure and delivery system, manufactured by RPC Bramlage-Wiko, provides a pressurised bottle cap where all the ingredients are contained and only released when the cap is opened.

It has been selected for a new range of natural drinks launched in the USA under the brand name Tea of a Kind, available in Peach Ginger Black Tea, Citrus Mint Green Tea, and Pomegranate Acai White Tea and is a 100% natural drink, containing only 20 calories per bottle and is loaded with antioxidants.

A key requirement of delivering a superior tea experience with every drink was to preserve the natural essence of the teas until the consumer chooses to drink them. Using the Gizmo closure means the ingredients are mixed at the point of consumption to provide a much fresher drink than any pre-mixed variety as well as an eye-catching colour changethat enhances the opening experience.

For Tea of a Kind, the Gizmo closure chamber provides protection for the natural flavours, real brewed tea and powerful antioxidants without the use of chemical preservatives. In addition, the chamber defends the ingredients against UV light, oxidation and other damaging conditions that can degrade the nutrients and which most bottled beverages experience in the warehouse, on the delivery truck and on the store shelf.

As the cap is twisted, the ingredients burst into the bottle and self-mix, creating at the same time a colour change that provides visual confirmation that the drink is fresh and ready to consume.

The system comprises a miniature pressurised injection moulded chamber which operates in combination with various Gizmo closure designs. The chamber is tailored to hold the precise required volume of colours, flavours, vitamins, minerals, herbs or concentrates.
