What are Carlsberg’s new “betterments”?
For Carlsberg in bottles, we created a cleverly-designed Fresh Cap that removes oxygen from the headspace in the bottle. You get a fresher taste for 5x longer!
The new Carlsberg stem glasses come engraved with a hop leaf-shaped nucleation stamp at the bottom, which generates more foam, helping to retain the aroma for longer.
For Carlsberg in cans, we improved the pack with an Easy to Open feature, allowing consumers to open a 6-can pack of Carlsberg in no time!
