The KB Bottle

Innovative | Sustainable | Recyclable

KB Bottles are the world’s first and only commercially available wine, spirits, olive oil, and non-carbonated beverages bottle, made from recycled paperboard.

KB Bottles are made from 100% recycled paperboard and include a food grade pouch inside. These bottles are five times lighter than glass, have six times lower carbon footprint, and provides 360-degrees of branding space. This innovative packaging technology offers a disruptive and revolutionary alternative to glass.

Kinsbrae is proud to have purchased the world’s first Frugal Bottle Assembly Machine (FBAM-1) from British sustainable packaging firm, Frugalpac. The FBAM-1 can produce more than 2.5 million paper bottles per year. This allows us to help several North American companies move to more sustainable packaging and reduce their carbon footprint, by switching to the KB Bottle.

Why Choose the KB Bottle

The KB Bottle offers several notable benefits, giving your company even more reasons to make the change to paper packaging.
We are the first in the world to invest in the Frugal Bottle Assembly Machine and the only supplier in North America.

The KB Bottle’s carbon footprint is up to 84% lower than glass and uses 77% less plastic than a recycled plastic bottle.

No More Breakage

Paperboard bottles are shatterproof, cutting down on losses from breakage, and allowing the bottle to go anywhere glass cannot.

Efficient Shipping

The KB Bottle is 5 times lighter than glass, allowing for increased heights and quantities on a pallet, fitting more on a truck.

Less Packaging​

No dividers are needed, and smaller boxes means less packaging, lowering your carbon footprint, and your overall costs.

360° Design ​

The recycled paperboard allows for 360° branding across the bottle. No other wine or spirit bottle looks or feels like it.


KB Bottles are made of 100% recycled paperboard and are easily recycled in your paper bin when pulled apart.

Protects Against UV

The KB Bottle provides an effective barrier against UV light, helping to preserve the products quality.
