Croxsons’ striking bottle complements Silent Pool Gin’s Platinum Celebration release
A limited edition celebratory gin commemorating Queen Elizabeth’s II’s Platinum Jubilee, has recently been released by award-winning distillers, Silent Pool Gin. Leading glass-packaging company Croxsons provided the signature bottle, which features Silent Pool Gin’s iconic patterning.
A key partner and Silent Pool Gin’s first call experts for anything glass-related, Croxsons has been instrumental in assisting the distiller in the supply of high-quality primary packaging, decoration, and in evolving the distinctive designs used on previous releases. For this project, the limited edition bottle – being representative of the existing structure of the core Silent Pool Gin brand – features a platinum print of the unmistakable Silent Pool Rose Expression Gin design, together with a neck and bottle label on the lower portion.
A “breath-taking” bottle of “impeccable quality”
“The bottle was created with the vision of celebrating the once-in-a-lifetime occasion that is Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, while still be recognisably a Silent Pool Gin product,” said Sophie Best, Silent Pool’s operations director. “For this, we turned our now iconic copper pattern a gorgeous shade of platinum and created metallic, platinum-coloured stickers that are placed on the belly and neck of the bottle, depicting the dates of Her Majesty’s reign.
“We think the final outcome is absolutely breath-taking. The platinum colour of the pattern is impossible to miss and perfectly represents the Platinum Jubilee. It’s truly something very special, which we’ll never do again.
“We’ve worked with Croxsons since setting up the brand in 2014. The team is extremely supportive and on-hand to answer questions, solve problems and provide advice whenever we need it. They’re fantastically creative and produce superb bottles that are an impeccable quality indicator to the liquid inside,” she added.
Tim Croxson, CEO of Croxsons, added that his firm was once again delighted to be part of Silent Pool Gin’s journey. “This latest commemorative release is entirely fitting to celebrate this once-in-a-1,000-year occasion. A true classic from Silent Pool Gin that is simply stunning.”
