Maison Lillet has won the Millésime Eco-Design award for its sustainable packaging created with O-I.

French distillery Maison Lillet, a subsidiary of Pernod Ricard, worked with O-I to create more environmentally friendly packaging.

This included a glass bottle which contained 35% recycled glass and was 110g lighter than the previous version.

The new packaging earned them this year's Millésime Eco-Design award, which is run by Adelphe.

Adelphe is a non-profit eco-organisation that aims to develop the recycling of household packaging from companies in France, particularly in the Wines and Spirits sector.

Launched in 2020, the Millésime competition aims to reward companies in the wine, champagne, spirits, beer and cider industries that are committed to improving the environmental impact of their packaging.
