Anti-Counterfeiting Solutions for the Wine & Spirits Industry 

The challenge: In the lucrative business of wine and spirits, counterfeiters try to make money by imitating or re-filling original bottles with inferior liquids. For your company this can result in lost sales, threatens to damage your brand's image and also endangers the health of your customers. But how can you prevent counterfeits, while at the same time creating a better customer experience without compromising your elaborate packaging design?

Our solution

Whether your product is a prestigious Pinot Noir, refined single malt Scotch whisky, or exclusive premium rum, we provide customized brand protection solutions for any product in the wine and spirits industry. Your bottles will be equipped with individual, forgery-proof markings that are connected to our digital platform SCRIBOS 360. This provides authentication and allows your customers to interact with your brand.

Security Label

Our security labels are specially designed for application on bottles and reliably protect against counterfeiting and refilling.

SCRIBOS HiddenCode

Our HiddenCode label exhibits a tamper-proof void effect upon initial opening, thereby providing maximum protection against unauthorised opening, theft, and refilling. On top of this, the code concealed within the void shields loyalty program codes from unauthorised access and abuse.
