A FIRM from Bridge of Allan has joined forces with an Irish distillery to create a Christmas gift for spirit lovers.

Angels’ Share Glass has teamed up with Dingle Distillery to create bespoke glass gin baubles for the Irish market.

The items are hand-made locally, filled with the award-winning gin and will be going on sale under the fun festive tagline Dingle All the Way.

Karen Somerville, managing director at Angels’ Share Glass, said: “After reading about our popular whisky baubles, Dingle Distillery contacted us to make an exclusive gin product for them with bespoke packaging all to be made in Scotland.

“We’re delighted to be part of this exciting gin-filled Christmas baubles launch in Ireland – the order is a great boost to the firm and means a lot to us as we have family connections with the country.

“Our whisky baubles really caught the imagination and people seem to love them. I’ve no doubt it will be the same for the gin baubles which will prove a real hit with gin-lovers and are well-timed given the current gin revival.”

Elliot Hughes, of County Kerry-based Dingle, added: “The Dingle Gin Bauble is a fun and unique gift for the gin-lover in your life.

“It is a premium product at a very good price allowing the consumer to enjoy both the decorative aspect as well as award-winning Dingle Gin.

“I think they will go down fantastically well with the Irish market. Irish people are drinking gin, like in a lot of European countries, more than ever and are drinking premium spirits like never before.

“I think people will really enjoy the gin bauble whether it’s received as a gift or bought for themselves!”
