Our Isle of Raasay Gin is the talk of the town and due to popular interest, we’re transporting you inside our bottle factory run by world class glass manufacturers Stoelzle Glass Group for an exclusive look behind the scenes at our glass bottle production process and how our beautiful bottle is made.
First off in bottle production, the molten glass is dropped down through an orifice and poured through deflectors that feed the bottle mould.
Once out of the mould, the bottles are at a staggering temperature of 1200 degrees! They are grabbed by the neck, pulled over plates and held to cool down.
Next the bottles patiently queue up to go through a ‘thermal shock prevention machine’ to avoid breakages from extreme temperature change.
The bottles then enter a laser machine that detects any faults. Faulty bottles are removed via air jet blasts and sent off to be recycled.
Now nearing the end of the glass bottle production process, they are cold-end sprayed which prevents scuffing if they knock against each other in transit.
