Astro Jupiter and Venus spirit closures:
increasingly beautiful, increasingly safe

The alcoholic beverages market is one of the most important in the field of consumer products, with an annual value of about 30 billion dollars and with significant growth rates in many countries, particularly the emerging countries (i.e. China, India, Mexico, etc.).

It is a market characterised by two aspects:

  • the strategic importance of packaging for communicating brand status and personality: in an increasingly crowded competitive environment, all brands are moving towards increasingly sophisticated and complex graphic solutions to communicate their uniqueness and attract the attention of consumers
  • the extent of counterfeiting, which causes significant financial losses and damage to the image of major brands: in many countries, original branded products risk being violated by local criminals who infiltrate them with liquids of poor quality or to which chemicals have been added, posing a serious risk to consumer health

Astro’s answer to these two problems are the Jupiter and Venus Spirit closure series, developed specifically for the packaging of spirits, distillates and liqueurs.

Venus Spirit: 100% safety

Developed and produced by Astro, Venus Spirit is an elegantly designed screw closure with a pre-threaded tamper evident insert.

The special guarantee seal, located inside the aluminium casing, only comes out when the bottle is opened for the first time. When the bottle is closed, the seal remains visible on the outside of the lower part in aluminium, proving without doubt that it has been opened.

Covered by an international patent, Venus Spirit is available for 30 mm neck finishes with Liner ProtexE liner or with Astro NoRefill valve (with or without ball).
