100% soy wax candle | 150 to 250g (approx)

Part of our new line of booze-scented candles, this Maraschino Cherry Candle is made right here in our distillery from 100% soy wax and hand-poured into glass (choose between a jar or a glass cut from old spirit bottles).

Soy wax meets the funk of maraschino cherries

We've infused soy wax with scent of intense maraschino cherries. Best enjoyed while shaking up and sipping a cherry cocktail. We enjoy just throwing one in the back of the car (unlit, of course) to relish in cherry goodness during peak hour traffic.

OPTION 1: Poured into 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.

OPTION 2: Poured into a jar

We've poured these candles in jars that are fitted with lids for a sleek look that also keeps their strong scent as fresh as possible for you to enjoy. The jars we've used are the same ones as we use for our Naked Maraschino Cherries. This means we're able to buy them in bulk and pass on some savings to all you possums out there.

Limited stock

Due to how long it takes us to make every candle, our stocks are naturally always limited. 

⚠ Important ⚠

For candles poured into a cut glass bottle: 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.

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Trim wick prior to burning for best results.

Giving a gift?

As a neat and somewhat quirky addition, why not include a custom gift note on a Possum Greeting Card for an extra $5?
