The craft spirits sector is booming in the UK, and more and more artisan distillers are turning to Beatson Clark’s Apothecary Range of bottles to ensure their product stands out on the shelf. Forty-five more distilleries opened in 2016, taking the total to 273, as consumers develop a taste for small batch, high-quality spirits. Gin is particularly popular as it’s relatively simple to produce and lends itself to
a wide variety of flavourings to suit all tastes. Glass manufacturer Beatson Clark offers both bespoke designs and standard bottles from its general sale range, but its Apothecary Range
is proving especially popular with artisan producers. The bottles were originally designed as pharmaceutical containers for medicines and tonics, and their vintage look and unusual shapes mean they can give a new craft spirits brand a distinctive, retro appearance. BrewDog was among the first to use Beatson Clark’s pharmaceutical bottles for its LoneWolf gin.
