100% soy wax candle | 150 to 250g (approx)
Part of our new line of booze-scented candles, this Peated Whisky Candle is made right here in our distillery from 100% soy wax and hand-poured into glass cut from old spirit bottles.
Soy wax meets a smokey counterpart
We've infused soy wax with scents that resemble a lightly peated whisky. We tested many different oils and combinations of oils with mixed results before settling on this particular formula. We recommend enjoying it with a dram of good quality whisky in a cosy place.
We're also working on a much heavier peated formula for the real smoke heads out there. If that's you, sign up to our newsletter to stay in the loop!
Rejuvenating old spirit bottles
These old spirit bottles are ones we've collected over the years which aren't suitable for re-using for our liqueurs. For ages we were hoarding them with no particular use in mind for them, other than the fact we didn't want them to be chucked in recycling during a time when most of our recycling is being tipped in the trash by the council!
To cut them, we use a heat stress method in combination with a lapidary diamond saw. The sharp end is then rather laboriously sanded back using a bench wet sander and portable detail sander. It's all quite different from what we usually do that's for sure!
Since we've salvaged a variety of different bottles, each candle will contain a different amount of wax depending on the size of the original bottle but will generally be between 150 to 250g. We dispatch candles randomly.
Due to how long it takes us to make every candle, our stocks are naturally always limited.
⚠ Important ⚠
Due to the nature of manual glass cutting process, there will inevitably be some small indentations, rough patches and small chips which may be visible in the finished product. Please don't expect a perfectly polished glass and please do keep this in mind if giving one of our candles as a gift. Some edges may also remain a little sharp, so these candles should not be used as drinking vessels after they're empty.
Each candle comes with a paper top which protects the wax and keeps the aroma fresh for when you receive it. Please ensure this paper top is removed prior to first lighting the candle.
Never leave a burning candle unattended. Trim wick prior to burning for best results.
Deliciously smoky scent from this candle!
My husband loved the candle - he said it reminds him of camping, especially now since we can't go due to the lockdown.
