Metals

Aluminium

Aluminium is cold to touch, refreshing to drink from, and does not break or shatter on impact. It can be used for a variety of beverage categories, from beer and alcoholic mixers to energy drinks and aromatic infusions.

Consumers are used to aluminium cans although these tend not to be used as drinking vessels in bars. When in a club or bar some customers prefer to drink from a bottle. One option is Rexam’s Fusion bottle, an aluminium product available in various sizes.

Disposal

Aluminium is easily recyclable.

Disposal

Pewter can be remelted and reused.
