History and origins
From latin “stannum”, Tin has been known for thousands of years as a luxurious and malleable element. Tin has managed to gain respectability in the glassworks, jewellery and goldsmithing sectors.
Historically high quality bottles produced by the European nobility and plugged with a natural cork, were protected with wax (to prevent damage from rodents in the old cellars of the house), which was sealed with the shield weapons producer for control and identification. This was the origin of the capsule we know today, and serves as a mark of distinction and brand of the producer.
Lead eventually replaced the seal, until it was prohibited on all packaging in the late twentieth century.
The Tin Capsule is used for the most prestigious Wines & Spirits, reaching perfection in the image transmitted.
