Some things in life are just too precious to let go of, and we like to think our rugged island inspired bottles fall into that category. If you’ve just conducted a brutal new year clear out, or are still very much in the de-cluttering stages of 2023, we have some great ways to ensure these bottles don’t find their way to the back of your tupperware cupboard and gather dust. Here are some ways you can reuse our glass bottles to ensure their spirit lives on and adds some Hebridean character to the everyday objects in your home.
The perfect addition to your mood lighting set up to inject some cosiness into these chilly winter nights.
Or, if you’re not feeling up to it, an easier option would be to run a small string of fairy lights into the bottle; you can even find some made specifically for doing so!
Add layers of texture to your space with this gin bottle craft. Pair our bottle with a small bunch of flowers. With Raasay’s hillside and raw materials inspiring our bottle design, it feels like a fitting match to add a further essence nature to our bottles. We love to opt for dried bouquets at our distillery, making it a low maintenance yet highly impactful addition to our visitor centre space.
Get everyone at your dinner party talking about the island-inspired design on our bottles. With Raasay’s fossils and rocks moulded into the glass, your guests will be holding a piece of Raasay in your hands as they pour themselves a drink. Let’s face it, not everyone has the hosting skills to transport their guests to a beautiful Inner Hebridean island, but you will.
Not only do we love spotting our bottles at the bar of our stockists, but we also love to see them being given a second life once the spirit has stopped flowing. Some great examples of this are Hamiltons, The Blackbird and Voyage of Buck, all Edinburgh bars that are reusing our glass bottles as water jugs for their customers.
So there you have it, four of the ways we love to bring life after the liquid when it comes to our bottles. Now it’s time to show us how your upcycle our glass bottles! Use the hashtag #RaasayRepurposed to be featured on our social media and help us reduce our carbon footprint in the process. We can’t wait to see what you create!
The Isle of Raasay, an island rooted in centuries of illicit distilling, provides the ingredients for the perfect dram. Our lightly peated Isle of Raasay Single Malt is an expression of this magical place.
Our zesty, smooth and refreshing Isle of Raasay Gin combines an exciting selection of ten Raasay and traditional botanicals, including Raasay juniper, sweet orange peel, rhubarb root and our double distilled spirit.
