A romantic trail of candles along the path round the Silent Pool has traditionally lit the way to the artisan distillery in Albury for its popular evening events. Now Silent Pool Distillery has created its own luxury range of botanical-infused candles echoing the essence of its spirits in a new collaboration with an artisan candle maker and Feather Edge, supplier of handcrafted and designed tableware and home accessories.
Feather Edge founder Amber Craven approached Silent Pool director Ian McCulloch about the possibility of creating the Gin Botanicals Collection to complement her original Earl Grey Tea candles. They chose three fragrances- Kaffir Lime, Bergamot Orange and Christmas Spirit, blends inspired by the romantic botanicals that give Silent Pool Gin its distinctive and exceptional character.
The candles are hand poured for Feather Edge by artisan candlemaker Bird Box in England using only natural, sustainable ingredients without any petrochemicals or mineral wax and possess the added therapeutic qualities of pure essential oils.
Amber Craven explains ‘As committed artisan distillers, Silent Pool actively encourage collaborations with like-minded local companies and their intricate, multi-layered gin lends itself perfectly to the world of luxury home fragrance.’
Ian McCulloch, Founding Partner of award winning Silent Pool Distillers comments, ‘It was important for us to use sustainable soy wax and pure essential oils that capture the bright aromatics, delicate florals, rich citrus and ethereal high notes of Silent Pool Gin. The result is three delicious fragrances everyone will love.’
The candles are available to buy from Silent Pool’s new on-site retail shop in Albury, from the Feather Edge Collection at Charter Walk Kitchen Living, Charter Walk, Haslemere and online at featheredge.com
