DOC PORTER'S RECYCLED BOTTLE CANDLES
Charlotte Candle Company worked with the owners of Doc Porter’s distillery, to help them fulfill the promise of a “nothing wasted" business philosophy. They wanted to recycle their tasting room sample bottles into long lasting, soy wax candles. At Doc Porter’s, making beautiful, handmade craft spirits was their passion. Every drop of Doc Porter's vodka, gin, and bourbon was made from scratch using locally-sourced grains from Marshville and Asheville, NC. As the collaboration took shape, Liz and Andrew Porter selected the fragrances to be contained in their bottles. From there, Charlotte Candle Company hand cut, sanded, buffed and cleaned each glass bottle one by one. The 17oz. candles were poured in batches of four and they will burn more than 65 hours. Doc Porter’s sampling bottles were recycled as vessels for beautiful, long-lasting, all-natural, soy wax candles for craft spirit and Doc Porter’s lovers to enjoy in their home.
They closed their doors on Nov. 14, 2020 but we will always remember what great friends they have been to us!
UPDATE: We found two cases of Doc's in our storage area and decided to bring them back for the final time!
Drink Doc's & Cheers!
