100% soy wax candle | 300-500g (approx)

Part of our 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.

We've infused soy wax with scents that resemble a heavily peated whisky. This is one for the real smoke lovers out there. Many different oils and combinations of oils were tested (with mixed results) before we managed to settle on this particular formula. We recommend enjoying it with a dram of good quality whisky in a cosy place.

Choose between a jar or a glass cut from old spirit bottles. The candles we cut from old spirit bottles are considerably taller as we try to preserve the label as best we can during the cutting process.

Option 1: Poured into an old spirit bottle

These old spirit bottles have been collected over the years and 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 wide 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 300g to 500g. 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. These contain around 150g to 200g of wax per jar.

⚠ 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.

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

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?

Like sipping whisky by the fire

A wonderful addition to the room for a whisky night, or for dessert.
I love this gorgeous concept. A bit on the pricey side, but very bespoke. Very happy.
The smell is perfect and I had fun figuring out what spirit the bottles had come from!

Really lovely smell and jar looked lovely.



Deliciously smoky scent from this candle!
