STIRLING GLASSMAKERS LAUNCH REFILLABLE WHISKY ANGEL
Stirling giftware company Angels’ Share Glass created the refillable angel as an addition to their signature range following customer requests.
Customers told Managing Director Karen Somerville they loved collecting the firm’s glass angels – filled and sealed with the `Angels’ Share’ of whisky – but also wanted drinkable editions.
The `Angels’ Share’ is the measure of whisky lost to evaporation during the maturing process which, according to distillers’ legend, is taken away by angels.
The new refillable angels are designed by the firm’s Studio Manager and glassmaker Bee Hardy and come filled with different whiskies from several distilleries.
They are the same size as the original sealed Angels but have a cork attached to a ribbon which can be removed so the 25ml of single malt inside can be consumed and refilled.
Ms Hardy said: “We’ve created a decoration with a difference which we expect to be popular with customers.”
Meanwhile, the team are opening up their Bridge of Allan studio to give customers the chance to try their hand at glassblowing.
They can spend either a morning or an afternoon learning the basic techniques of lampwork glassmaking before creating a bauble, angel decoration or drink stirrer.
Ms Hardy said: “This is a rare opportunity to try your hand at a new experience – glassmaking with myself and my colleagues. I’m passionate about the craft and we’re opening our doors so others can discover the joy of glassmaking. It may even lead to the start of a fruitful hobby as well as being a fun day out to impress your friends. No experience is needed although customers must be 16 or over.”
