Halewood Artisanal Spirits has asked glass manufacturer Beatson Clark to update the bottles used for its JJ Whitley range of flavoured vodkas and gins.
Halewood has just launched the latest new variant in its JJ Whitley range – a Lemon Citron Spirit drink.
Distilled in the UK, it’s just one of the products in the JJ Whitley range that is being given a fresh new look in 70cl Beatson Clark white flint glass bottles.
The new bottles will be used on numerous products across the JJ Whitley Vodka and Gin line up, including existing products such as Artisanal Vodka, Raspberry, Blood Orange and Vanilla.
More sustainable bottles updates have also been made across Halewood’s Whitley Neill and Dead Man’s Fingers spirits ranges, including Whitley Neill Apple & Red Berries Gin which has just launched in a new Beatson Clark bottle.
Halewood says one of the reasons it has returned to Beatson Clark, a trusted supplier over many years, is for reasons of sustainability – the new bottles are made in the UK using 45% recycled material.
“Beatson Clark’s closed loop recycling system ensures that large volumes of post-consumer glass are processed on site and used in the production of its new bottles, significantly reducing the environmental impact of the manufacturing process,” said Scott Kilshaw, Supply Chain Director at Halewood Artisanal Spirits.
“We’re pleased to unveil our new glass bottles from local suppliers Beatson Clark, showcasing our dedication to providing more sustainable solutions across our business to reduce our carbon footprint.
“We’ve always worked together well with Beatson Clark and we trust them as a supplier,” Scott added. “We can achieve better efficiencies in production by sourcing all our packaging requirements from one place.”
