Bespoke Whisky Inspired Candles

We work hand in hand with a number of distilleries creating aroma blends for candles and colognes to evoke the glorious aromas of their Scottish Single Malt Whiskies.

Our founder Kirsty developed a euphoric aroma accord of Cedarwood, Vetiver, Patchouli, Benzoin, Lime and Clementine which was approved instantly by the farm distillery on the Isle of Islay. We had our local potter create an authentic hand thrown Whisky Cup vessel in Kilchoman colours which we fill by hand at our artisan open door coastal workshop in glorious Tarbert, Loch Fyne.

You don't get much less throwaway than a candle holder which can be used forever more as a Whisky Cup once the candle is finished and cleaned out of the pottery cup.

Zing is the only brand we are aware of to create bespoke aroma blends in an all botanical formula. Most whisky inspired candles are created in standard aroma blends and use synthetic fragrances. The most admired distilleries pride themselves on using only pure ingredients and there is a demand from their customers for authentic brand related gifts with the highest quality credentials. The products are perfect for distillery shops and for sale on line and overseas.

Our products are fully compliant in respect of CLP legislation for candles and in respect of EU Skincare legislation for skincare (Organic Colognes). The end retailer needs this reassurance as they are also responsible for ensuring products are safe and compliant, all the more important if exporting.


Zing has and continues to have extensive independent purity testing conducted by The Chemistry Clinic at Strathclyde University of Glasgow.
