Jingle bell Scotch: Angel’s Share Glass launches whisky-filled baubles in time for Christmas

A family firm has launched a Christmas essential for whisky connoisseurs – glass baubles filled with Scotland’s national drink.

The baubles come complete with a cork so they can be enjoyed for years to come.

While gin-filled baubles have been on the market for some time, two independent Scottish firms are combining forces to make whisky the tipple of the season.

Stirling-based Angels’ Share Glass has partnered with independent bottlers Douglas Laing & Co to create a line of hand-blown coloured glass baubles with whisky inside.

There are four different baubles in the company’s range, each filled with 50ml of a regional whisky from Laing’s Remarkable Regional Malts collection.

The orange bauble is filled with Big Peat – a blend of single malts from Islay – while the green includes Timorous Beastie, a tipple described as capturing “the true essence of the Highlands.” There’s also a red bauble filled with Scallywag – a malt inspired by a long line of Douglas Laing family fox terriers – and finally, a gold-coloured ornament which comes with a dram of Rock Oyster, a malt from Scotland’s whisky islands.

The baubles also come with a removable cork making them perfect for a festive dram before being re-filled with a whisky of choice.

The decorations, which retail at £48 for a set of four, are already available on Angel’s Share Glass’ website.

Angel’s Share Glass is known for its quirky Christmas decorations. “We’ve always made Christmas baubles sealed with a famous whisky quote inside,” said managing director Karen Somerville. “Why not go one step further and make lovely glass ornaments filled with whisky you can drink?”

Christmas may still be months away, but Somerville claims the decorative drams are already a hit with customers.

“They’re very colourful and customers say they like the idea of hanging something beautiful on their tree with the added bonus of trying out the different malts on Christmas Day.”

Jenny Rogerson of Douglas Laing & Co added that the baubles will definitely make their way onto the Christmas tree at the whisky-specialist’s distillery in Glasgow.

Rogerson said: “Our family business is all about quality and craftsmanship. Karen and her team at Angels’ Share Glass share those same values so we’re both proud and delighted to partner with them on this innovative, fun project.”
