A recent report published by the World Customs Organization states that the value of alcoholic beverages seized due to IPR infringement has risen significantly from 2012 to 2013 (51.7%).(World Customs Organization, Illicit Trade Report 2013, from wcoomd.org, p. 64)
Counterfeit alcoholic beverages are therefore a growing problem for producers and consumers alike. In an effort to combat the rise of wine and liquor fraud, AlpVision offers the wine and spirits industry a patented security solution that requires no visible markings, no additional consumables, no special reading devices, and no changes to the production process.

AlpVision’s Crytoglyph technology for metal is an invisible marking that can be applied to spirits metal closures using regular visible varnish and standard printing process.
