Bulk wine sold in flagons was subject to spoiling once opened, so several Australian wine companies began developing a wine dispenser cask.
In 1965, Tom Angove patented the 'improved container and pack for liquids' and Angove's became the first company to market the wine cask, sometimes known as the 'bag-in-a-box'.
Angoves 'handy gallon pack' wine cask features graphics designed by well-known South Australian designer Wytt Morro.
