Welcome to The Gin Botanicals Collection, a collaboration between Compass Candles and Silent Pool Distillers.
Each handcrafted candle is made using an original Silent Pool Gin bottle as part of our upcycling scheme here at Silent Pool Distillery, giving the bottles a second chance to shine. After squeezing out every last drop of our delicious Silent Pool Gin, our beautiful bottles are professionally cut to a smooth and exceptional finish. Using only 100% natural essential oils and soy wax, these candles are hand poured in the UK by our friends Becky & Sam at Compass Candles. With a passion to use only natural ingredients, Becky & Sam have carefully selected a unique wick that is made from Cedar, a natural wood. When lit, the wooden wick produces a subtle crackling sound, much like the comforting sound of a glowing fire.
Bergamot and Lavender play an important role in the flavour profile of Silent Pool Gin. Orange is the dominant citrus in our gin with three types of the fruit used in the distillation process (fresh orange peel, bitter orange peel and bergamot orange) and a twist of peel is the finishing touch on our signature serve G&T. Lavender, on the other hand, is one of our most local botanicals, often seen growing in the area local to the distillery. As one of five of the floral tea infusion botanicals, it is key to the delicate top notes of Silent Pool Gin.
