Here at the Silent Pool Distillery, our environment has always been key to the brand which has always been a driving force to preserve resources. We’ve got numerous sustainability initiatives implemented: solar panels, biofuel powered boilers, closed loop cooling systems, refill machines, the list goes on. But the big question is what do we do with empty Silent Pool Gin bottles?
Whilst some of our crafty customers have put our bottles to other uses; table water bottles, vases, lights – and even chandeliers, a fraction of our bottles were still left unused. Too beautiful to discard of course.
Then Sam from Compass Candles approached us with an alternative idea: repurpose old bottles as luxury candles. After squeezing out every last drop of our delicious Silent Pool Gin, each bottle is professionally cut with a smooth finish and then filled with soy wax. Akin to the distillers here at Silent Pool Distillery, Sam has a passion for using all-natural ingredients including a unique cedar wick which, when lit produces a subtle crackling sound, much like our wood fired boiler.
Inspired by the botanicals used in our gins, these candles come in these gorgeous scents:
