Drink Sustainably By Refilling Your Craft Spirit Bottles at SmartKiosk.

The conundrum of a modern drinker: what to do with all those empty spirit bottles?

Well, we got you. Now you can drink sustainably and smartly (and with a discount to boot): the new CS Fresh SmartKiosk offers Singapore’s shoppers access to sustainable refills of a selection of craft spirit brands, including gins from Brass Lion Distillery. Other spirits available include Tried & True Straight Wheat Vodka, Widges Gin, Mackintosh Blended Malt Scotch Whisky and Los Arcos Destilado de Agave.

How does it work, you ask?


Tech, what else? Here what you do:

Either grab an empty branded bottle from the shelf at the kiosk (first-time use) or bring your empty spirit bottle from home to refill at the kiosk. The bottle should be the same brand bottle that you want to fill (i.e. Brass Lion bottle to fill Brass Lion liquid), as the SmartKiosk is equipped with brand authentication through a Verified Sustainable Refill feature, which means it will only dispense the spirit of an authentic branded bottle.

And just for doing that, you will save up to 20% over the same spirit in single-use packaging formats.

Fun Fact: Each sustainable refill offers significant environmental benefits, eliminating an average of 550g of carbon emissions and more than 700g of single-use packaging waste.


Proof & Company, one of Asia Pacific’s leading independent spirits distributors, is the world’s first to pioneer this new patent-pending SmartKiosk technology for ecoSPIRITS in partnership with DFI Retail Group.

Proof & Company is proud to be the very first operator of the SmartKiosk technology globally,” says Brandon Grusd, General Manager, Southeast Asia, Proof & Company. It’s a wonderful opportunity for our brand partners, such as Brass Lion Distillery and True Believers, to be at the forefront of consumer innovation. DFI and CS Fresh should be commended for their sustainability leadership in pioneering such a unique shopper experience.


Bonus: This initiative aligns with Singapore Green Plan 2030, which commits to reducing landfill waste per capita per day by 30% by 2030. For each refill purchased, ecoSPIRITS, Proof & Company and DFI will jointly plant one tree in the CS Fresh Forest under the ecoSPIRITS Forest Program.

The current SmartKiosk can offer six spirit brands. The number and range of spirits might expand in the future, but this will depend on multiple factors, such as consumer demand, retail space and continued advancements in technology. ecoSPIRITS, in collaboration with Proof & Company, is continuously looking at ways to evolve this technology to offer an enhanced customer experience.

Find the first SmartKiosk at CS Fresh, Tanglin Mall, with four other locations to be launched this year.
