Glass packaging provider toasts relationship with growing distillery

GLASS packaging specialist Croxsons has spoken of its role in helping to provide primary packaging for The Shropshire Distillery’s range of premium gins since the distillery’s inception in 2018.

The distillery launched its flagship Shire Gin in July 2018, which was followed by the introduction of its Spiced Gin and Cherry & Pink Peppercorn Gin.

In a significant move at the end of 2021, the distillery’s founders undertook a rebranding exercise to reaffirm the brand and strengthen connections with its audience. This included introducing new bottles and labels and renaming Shire Gin as The Shropshire Distillery Dry Gin. A recent move to larger premises has extended its services and experiences, which now includes a retail shop on site, refill service and a taphouse.

In addition to supplying The Shropshire Distillery with 70cl bottles, Croxsons also provides 5cl bottles and caps for the firm’s miniatures.

Emma Glynn from The Shropshire Distillery said, “Working with Croxsons has been a seamless experience since we started trading in 2018. Their attention to detail and commitment to resolving any challenges has ensured a smooth and successful collaboration. We’re particularly impressed with the finished product packaging – it’s exactly what we envisioned.”

Croxsons’ CEO, Tim Croxson, added, “The successful collaboration between ourselves and The Shropshire Distillery is a testament to Croxsons’ expertise in providing comprehensive packaging solutions that extend beyond just bottles, encompassing closures and a customer journey of the highest quality. We look forward to being involved in future projects with the distillery as they continue to develop new products.”
