‘I’ve always loved the designs on modern craft beer cans and have quite a collection from around the world! Due to being made redundant from my job as a flight attendant as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, this was the push I needed to begin candlemaking full time.‘
~ Jen, Owner & Founder
After the tops of cans are removed and glass bottles cut, they are then hand-sanded to minimise sharp or rough edges. Every care is taken to ensure as smooth an edge as possible, however please be aware some minor imperfections may remain.
The soy or coconut wax used in every candle is vegan-friendly derived from natural ingredients, which burns at a lower temperature than paraffin wax. As a result this produces less soot, creating an overall longer-lasting and safer candle. The hot wax is then poured into the cans or bottles at its optimum temperature for a perfect scent throw.
I choose paraben-free fragrance or essential oils never tested on animals, and scents which compliment the can design or tasting notes of the original ale*. All candles bear stickers with their relevant CLP (Classification, Labelling & Packaging) information – a legal requirement for any product containing fragrance or essential oils. It is always advised to check these before purchasing, and remember some essential oils in particular can be harmful to pets.
Once set, the candles are again cleaned and packaged in recyclable material ready for their forever home!
