This is one bottle of Coca-Cola you’re not going to want to open.
The company merged the classic Coca-Cola bottle with the iconic Miami Beach logo to create special commemorative bottles to celebrate the city’s 100th anniversary.
The special bottles were unviled during a ceremony at Miami Beach Thursday.
Linda Santo, of Miami Beach, said, “It’s so wonderful. I love Coke and it’s so great they’re celebrating the city of Miami Beach with us.”
Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine presented Coca-Cola's Regional Sales Manager Melanie Jones with a freshly minted centennial coin at Thursday's event. “They’re our partner in sustainability and environmental issues," Levine said, "The fact that they would design a Coca-Cola bottle and a whole box just for the Miami Beach centennial, We are taken aback. We're honored and we’re humbled.”
Jones emphasized why Miami Beach was a natural fit for Coca-Cola to celebrate. "An average year round temperature of 75 degrees. An entrepreneurial spirit that can’t be beat by any city in the country. A global flair for art, fine dining, fashion and entertainment. I see no better reason to honor Miami Beach,” she said.
Interested customers have to act quickly. The company put in an order of 6,000 six-packs of the bottles. They’ll be put in store across Miami Beach but once they’re sold out, they’re gone for good.
