The novelty cap was previously used during the launch of 11oz bottles. The packaging was recognized as one of the most innovated amidst 200 entries.

N.A.C.D. is a group of the industry’s leading distributors and manufacturers that adheres to a code of ethics that focuses on supplying the most trusted packaging from the nation’s best manufacturers.

The N.A.C.D. judges eight categories: Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetic & Toiletry, Industrial, Household, Chemical & Automotive, Pet & Veterinarian, and Novelty. Packaging is judged on graphics, decoration, shape, closure, texture, ease-of-use, consumer appeal, and technical merit.
