Charlotte Candle Company and Liz and Andrew Porter, owners of Doc Porter’s distillery, have collaborated to fulfill the promise of a “nothing wasted” business philosophy – by recycling Doc’s tasting room sample bottles into long lasting, soy wax candles. At Doc Porter’s, making beautiful, handmade craft spirits is their passion. Every drop of Doc Porter’s vodka, gin, and bourbon is made from scratch using locally-sourced grains from Marshville and Asheville, NC. As the collaboration took shape, Liz and Andrew 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. And now Doc Porter’s sampling bottles are being used and 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.
