Beatson Clark’s pharma bottle gives gin craft appeal

BrewDog-backed distillery will be using a bottle originally designed for pharmaceutical products for their new gin. The Beatson Clark made bottle gives the new LoneWolf gin a unique craft appeal.

LoneWolf spirits is a Scottish distillery that is backed by craft beer pioneers BrewDog. Their latest prototype craft gin will be sold in 500ml sloping shoulder flat bottle was originally designed for medicines. Its elegant lines and unusual shape help to emphasise the revolutionary nature of LoneWolf’s boundary-pushing product.

LoneWolf spirits’ are the only craft distillery in Scotland that makes its base spirit from grain to glass, under one roof. They launched their first spirits into the industry last year with V1 and V2 prototypes. This year they have launched the V3 prototype gin, which they gave an eye-catching look using a white flint bottle. It has been released as a limited edition of 1,000 bottles.

Beason Clark has been working with BrewDog for a number of years. They have supplied two bottles for them in recent months – a 375ml embossed champagne-style bottle for their Abstrakt range of occasional brews and a miniature 100ml bottle for their Hop Shot beer.

“It’s great that this partnership has now been extended to their sister company, LoneWolf Spirits, with this pharma bottle.”

Charlotte Taylor – Marketing Manager at Beatson Clark

This is not the first time a customer of Beason Clark has found a novel use for an existing container: last year London Rd Jam Jar Cocktails started selling its range of ready-to-serve premium cocktails in Beatson Clark’s 300ml glass food jar.

“We love it when customers give our glass bottles and jars a creative twist. With LoneWolf  BrewDog have gone one step further and put a craft spirit in a pharmaceutical bottle, and we think the final effect looks great!”

Charlotte Taylor – Marketing Manager at Beatson Clark
