About Our Bottles

About Our Bottles

Laken produces both Stainless Steel and Aluminum bottles and containers.

All Laken bottles exceed both FDA and EEC requirements, ensuring 0.000% leaching into the liquid contents.

Laken’s factory in Spain is ISO 9001/2008 certified, thus guaranteeing quality throughout the manufacturing process.

Stainless Steel Bottles

Laken makes stainless steel Thermo bottles, thermoses, cups and food containers. All of our stainless steel products are made of 18/8 food grade stainless steel, which means no liner is necessary. Our stainless steel bottles and containers are inert to hot and cold beverages such as coffee, tea and soups, as well as alcoholic beverages and acidic fruit juices. They are completely taste and scent neutral. We recommend that you do not place stainless steel bottles or containers in the dishwasher. They are easily cleaned with warm soapy water or diluted vinegar and baking soda.

High performance vacuum insulation between the double walled stainless steel bottles and containers insures that your food or drink remains either hot or cold for up to 24 hours (specific times are indicated for each individual product). In addition, the tight fitting lids prevent leakage and are suited for carbonated drinks as well. Their construction means that whether you have a hot or cold drink inside, the exterior of your Laken will remain dry and comfortable.

Non-toxic powdered coating is used on the exterior to give our bottles their attractive appearance. And, of course, all of our stainless steel bottles and containers are reusable and recyclable and are BPA, Phthalates and lead free.

Aluminum bottles

Laken's world famous aluminum bottles are manufactured with pure aluminum (99.7%). We coat the inside of our bottles with our proprietary coating that is baked into the inner bottle walls. This high temperature curing binds the coating to the bottle interior and prevents it from ever chipping or flaking off. Our coating is guaranteed to be BPA, Phthalates and lead free, as well as taste and scent neutral.

Most of Laken aluminum bottles are dishwasher safe. The beautiful exteriors of all of our bottles are also completely non-toxic and safe. The processes used to decorate the bottles ensure that the designs and colors are durable and will not chip off in the dishwasher.

All Laken aluminum bottles are both reusable and recyclable.

Country of Origin
Laken’s factory is located in Murcia, Spain, where Laken produces most of its products.
“Made in Spain” means a lot to us. It has been our philosophy for over 108 years since our factory in Spain was established in 1912. We care about the high quality of our products and we continuously improve and expand our in-house production processes.

Our aluminum products, including water bottles, canteens and kitchenware, are all made at our factory in Spain. The production process starts with a single flat aluminum disc and we process it all the way from creating the desired bottle shape, painting, decorating and assembling.

Production of our insulated stainless steel water bottles (the entire Thermo Water Bottle series) starts in Laken’s factory in Spain with a stainless steel raw body.
This stainless steel raw body is produced in China and prepared especially for Laken using Laken's designs and tools. After we test its insulation properties, we paint (powder coating with our special blend) and decorate it. Finally, we assemble the cap which is produced in Spain.

Our Tritan bottles are produced in Spain. Production starts with producing the bottle body from a raw material (
Eastman Tritan™ copolyester) and continues with decorating (for some designs) and production and assembling of our special caps.

Our high quality and well designed caps which are being used for our water bottles and canteens are also produced (by injection) in Spain. Those caps, made of polypropylene, are 100% BPA free.

The following products are not made in Spain at our factory, but instead, being produced in China especially for Laken, with Laken’s tools and based on Laken’s designs and specification: food flasks/jars, insulated Thermo Flasks (not our Thermo water bottles), coffee mugs, stainless steel kitchenware, Laken Basic steel bottles, neoprene covers and carrying bags. All of these products are always being first received at our factory in Spain and tested for their quality before being shipped to customers.
