To commemorate Gov. Nathan Deal‘s second inauguration, The Coca-Cola Co. produced a special 8 oz. Coca-Cola glass bottle for the inaugural events. Gov. Deal was on-hand at the Coca-Cola Marietta Production Facility as the first bottles rolled off the line.
“Growing up, it was more about where the bottle was from than what was on the label,” Deal said in a statement. “Coca-Cola has a great tradition in Georgia and has been part of my life since childhood. Thank you for this honor.”
“The Coca-Cola Company has a tradition of creating commemorative bottles for inaugurations in our home state,” Clyde Tuggle, SVP and chief public affairs and communications officer for The Coca-Cola Co., said in a statement. “This bottle is a way for Coca-Cola to join Georgians in celebrating Gov. Deal‘s inauguration in the same year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of our iconic Coca-Cola bottle”
