Allied Glass has produced a sustainable and lighter weight glass bottle for Two Drifters, a carbon negative distillery based in Devon, UK.

Two Drifters required a bottle that would be sustainable but also appear vibrant, as well as being lighter than the distillery’s previous bottles.

This led them to partnering with Allied Glass due to the manufacturer’s experience in sustainable glass production.

The partnership led a 30% lighter bottle, as well as labelling and tamper seals created from sugarcane fibre, to utilise waste from the sugar refining process needed for rum.

Nolan Kane, Head of Emerging Brands at Allied Glass, said: “Allied is really pleased to support the Two Drifters team and are really happy that they have chosen a UK based glass manufacturer for their bottles, as the sustainability credentials of the glass perfectly reflects the Two Drifters ethos.”

Two Drifters taxes itself on carbon, aiming to produce as little as possible. It also works with carbon-removal company Climeworks to capture and bury unavoidable emission release.

The distillery believes that its partnership with Allied Glass has created packaging that lives up to its sustainability ethos.
