Allied Supports the Launch of Makar Glasgow Gin

Allied Glass Containers are delighted to have supported The Glasgow Distillery Company with the creation of a beautiful pack for their new Makar Glasgow Gin.

A unique heptagonal bottle which was originally designed by Fraser Reynolds on behalf of Glasgow Distillery, the Allied design team became involved in the project at an early stage ensuring that they could work closely together to translate the original concept into a fit-for-purpose bottle design.

A bold yet intricate bottle manufactured in Gicel extra white premium flint glass, the key features are the beautiful chamfers and slices in the body, which were produced to be as sharp as possible, in order to create a bold light refraction effect through the bottle.

A premium hand-crafted gin named after the Scot’s word for “poet”, Makar is produced in 300 bottle batches from the company’s copper pot still, Annie, and is based on a juniper-led recipe that includes seven additional botanicals: angelica root, liquorice, coriander seeds, lemon peel, rosemary, black peppercorns and cassia bark.
