Stoelzle Glass Group's Dragon Slayer Gin won the category of Best Packaging of a New Product at the UK Packaging Awards 2022.

The Dragon Slayer Distillery Gin bottles (see left) are manufactured at Stoelzle Flaconnage in Knottingley, UK.

The bottle design and gin, which is created from locally sourced ingredients, are rooted in the story of culture and heritage of dragon slayer folklore.

Two other Stoelzle Flaconnage’s Knottingley-manufactured bottles were also nominated for the UK Packaging Awards.

The Spirit of One Gin (Global Ethics Liquor) and Kirkjuvagr Gin (Orkney Distilling) were both nominated in the Glass Pack of the Year: Spirits, Perfume and Cosmetics category.

The Stoelzle Flaconnage Design team worked closely with all three of the nominated and winning customers to support the design of the bottles.

For the Dragon Slayer Gin bottle, the team was also responsible for the closure of the bottle.

The awards celebrate the innovative packaging, people and businesses that make up the UK packaging industry.

This year's event was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane, which had over 700 attendees.
