The Spirited Shipper has provided
wine, beer and spirits packaging and shipping services from his licensed and bonded
warehouse in Astoria, NY, for nearly 30 years.
Unable to find sturdy and reliable shipping materials, we designed
and patented (US patents 5,730,289 and 5,967,320) the Spirited Shipper's
renowned shipping materials, which are accepted as the best in the industry.
Unlike many other cartons being sold for shipping glass bottles which may just
have a second layer of cardboard, these bottle shippers are truly a bottle
packaging system. A heavyweight and strong outer carton is utilized with
uniquely designed bottle inserts which prevent bottle movement in addition to
providing more layers of protection from the Kraft cardboard itself. The
bottles also sit on a "shelf" in this insert which provides a
protective gap from the bottom of the carton.
With so many advantages over Styrofoam wine shippers, it's no wonder
that the Spirited Shippers have become the standard for many companies in the
wine industry. One of the most appreciated advantages stems from the fact that
they ship and store flat which greatly reduces their inbound shipping charges
and required storage space.
The Spirited Shipper wine packaging system has shippers in three
sizes covering everything from beer bottles up to magnum size bottles and are
available from single bottle shippers up to twelve bottle shippers. These
patented glass bottle shippers are utilized for olive and other cooking oils,
coffee and many other products which are sold and shipped in glass bottles. The
screen-printing service lends itself to custom logos for wineries as well as
corporate gifting applications.
Support for the wine industry grew when The Spirited Shipper began
manufacturing wooden wine boxes which have become extremely popular due to
their competitive pricing advantage. Utilized by wineries and importers for the
exclusive and most expensive wine selections, customizing these boxes with
screen printed logos, dates, names or anything else, has also led to corporate
gift programs taking advantage of the branding aspect of using customized wine
Wine carriers, totes, bags and basic wine gift boxes complete the
product line today. Orders are processed automatically on this new
mobile-friendly website and can even be entered on a cell phone. Shipping is
completed with your choice of all five levels of FedEx service in addition to
common carrier trucking for bulk palletize orders. Warehouse pick-up is
available for local clients.
Over the years many wineries, alcoholic beverage retailers, wine
clubs and businesses of all sizes and types have grown to rely on the Spirited
Shipper for shipping wine and other alcoholic beverages reliably and legally.
As many wineries, importers and wine clubs recognize the benefits of
outsourcing their shipping in order to focus on their main business, the wine
fulfillment division continues to grow by providing reliable, secure, timely
and completely legal fulfillment for both large and small companies. This isn't
a function which can be performed by the general shipping industry as there are
special licensing requirements for shipping alcoholic beverages. As each of our
50 states have their own unique regulations for wine shipments, The Spirited Shipper
maintains a current license from the New York State Liquor Authority as well as
keeping abreast of ever-changing regulations and laws affecting the wine
industry. Protecting client property is always a priority in the fully secured,
monitored and insured warehouse. Employees are bonded and all client data is
secure, maintaining full privacy.
The Spirited Shipper continues to manage both businesses insuring
the highest level of client satisfaction. The ability to react immediately to special
and urgent client requests, resolve any issues and maintain relationships with
clients by being personally involved, it's no wonder that the Spirited Shipper
continues its constant growth.
