This month sees the introduction in the US of the sleek new packaging for Rhum Clément VSOP and Clément Créole Shrubb, an 80 proof rum-based liqueur. This follows the successful European roll-out of the redesign, which saw sales of the award-winning aged rum jump 40 per cent. The new packaging, the company says, "presents a modern outlook while maintaining a strong sense of the brand's 120-year-old history and heritage". The original Rhum Clément bottle was most recognised for its towering cylindrical shape and hand-tied raffia detail (below) . The new bottle, with its shorter silhouette, has a fashionable perfume-like look and is cork-finished. There are no plans to make design changes to the other bottles in the portfolio.
