Labels and bottles

Bottles

The bottle design is an essential feature of the “Borjomi” brand and is easily recognisable by its blue-green colour, the world famous label and the prominent deer engraving – the symbol of the Borjomi Valley.

Throughout its 100 year history, the design of the mineral water bottle has changed multiple times. The shape and colour of the present day’s “Borjomi” bottle were defined during the Soviet era and this new bottle has joined the numerous members of the modern “Borjomi” family.

This is one of the first “Borjomi” bottles, displayed on a special stand.
