Ty Nant Bottles
Design and Production
Ty Nant, the convention breaking, radical, revolutionary company with the deepest conservative blue.
Not only does Ty Nant promise the highest quality natural mineral water, but its presentation offers no compromise to either you, the consumer, or the environment, as each bottle is made either from specially commissioned glass or plastic – all of which can be recycled.
In today's competitive and crowded bottled water market, Ty Nant has arguably the most beautifully appealing product range, with an outrageously indulgent blue bottle, a fiery crimson bottle, an audacious, curvaceous PET bottle and most recently the clear glass, minimalist TAU bottle.
Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of Ty Nant is the company's innovative break with the old Victorian convention of using blue bottles to contain poison, and instead presenting blue as a pure and refreshing, wholly drinkable colour. Ty Nant courageously established this precedent in 1989, when it first presented the unique bottle to the world at the London Savoy, to much acclaim and subsequent design awards. Ty Nant is available in both still and sparkling in 750ml, 330ml and 250ml glass.
Ty Nant Too
To celebrate ten years of bringing unrivalled style to the tables of customers around the world, Ty Nant launched 'Ty Nant Too' in 1999 – an equally audacious crimson bottle. In keeping with the already famous blue bottle, reminiscent of blue glass traditionally made in Bristol in the 1800's, the crimson colour is also associated with the renowned glass-houses of Bristol. Ty Nant is available in both still and sparkling in 750ml and 330ml glass crimson bottles.
Pure by Design
Ty Nant teamed with Welsh born designer Ross Lovegrove to create the sensational new PET bottle. Boasting a form that was described as ‘impossible to produce’, Ty Nant’s fierce determination and passion for innovation brought the ground-breaking bottle to life. The asymmetrical bottle was designed to evoke the fluidity of water, and to launch the new bottle, Ty Nant combined its subtle curves with those of supermodel Adriana Sklenarikova to inspire a set of stunning photographs - shot by internationally renowned photographer - RANKIN - emphasising purity, fluidity and aesthetic form. Ty Nant is available in 1.5 Litre, 1 Litre and 500ml in PET bottles (still only).
A Clear Winner
March 2003 saw Ty Nant bringing contemporary, stylish design into the 'clear glass' sector of the bottled water market with TAU an immediate award winning, minimalist clear glass bottle. Reflecting Ty Nant's uncompromising approach to innovative design – TAU, with its chic minimalist black and white labels has been specifically designed for outlets where colour may not be appropriate but quality and style are essential.
TAU takes its name from an ancient welsh word meaning 'to be silent' which was felt to encapsulate TAU's understated clean lines, and the fresh tasting spring water drawn from a unique source, and bottled at the Ty Nant factory. TAU is available in both still and sparkling in 750ml and 330ml glass bottles.
