WestRock Company, a leading provider of sustainable paper and packaging solutions, earned six awards for packaging design excellence during the 79th annual North American Paperboard Packaging Competition, sponsored by the Paperboard Packaging Council and held October 26 in Austin, Texas.

WestRock won the prestigious Folding Carton of the Year award for Scottish Leader's Moonchild Whisky Limited Edition package, which uses WestRock FoilKote® to reflect the brand's bold, premium look, and reticulated varnish and rounded emboss to enhance the tactile experience.

This is the second time the WestRock team has received industry recognition for this package, which was also named a Platinum Winner at the European Carton Excellence Awards in September.

"It is a great honor to be recognized by the Paperboard Packaging Council for our innovative designs," said Sam Shoemaker, president, Consumer Packaging at WestRock. "Our boldly innovative teams work with customers to achieve their business objectives, resulting in packaging solutions that combine thoughtful design with strategic purpose, whether that is improving the sustainability of their packaging, helping their brands stand out on shelf – or both."

Entries are judged by a jury of packaging professionals and recognize best-in-class innovative and sustainable packaging designs in the North American folding carton industry.

The complete list includes:

  • Scottish Leader Moonchild Whisky Limited Edition, Folding Carton of the Year
  • Remy Martin XO Extra Old Cognac, Gold Award
