Rock Rose Gin Recycle Overview

Welcome to Rock Rose Gin Recycle!

At Dunnet Bay Distillers, creator of the multi -award winning Rock Rose Gin, the environment is really important to us – as such, we want to recycle and reuse as much as we can.

We are thrilled to launch Rock Rose Gin fully recyclable gin pouches, a super Recycle scheme that allow you to refill your Rock Rose Gin collectable ceramic empty bottles.

Rock Rose Gin – Bottle For Life

We are proud to be the first gin available in fully recyclable pouches that can be returned to the distillery, freepost via Royal Mail.

Once at the distillery, the pouches will be collected by Terracycle where they will be recycled into new items.

The green innovation, the first of its kind in the UK, has been developed by Rock Rose Gin in partnership with PA Consulting, the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life and who are experts in innovation and technology. Following more than 12 months of research and development, PA created a lightweight refill solution for current bottles of Rock Rose Gin with closed loop returns system for the pouches to be recycled by Terracycle. A four layer laminate pouch has been selected to lock in all the freshness of the gin, with an easy-to-use plastic spout closure.

Delivered, as well as returned, through the letterbox, the sustainable packaging also significantly reduces the energy spent in shipping Rock Rose Gin to customers, with the pouches weighing just 65grams rather than the 700grams for a bottle.

Rock Rose Gin is renowned for its signature and collectable ceramic bottles, which are all hand signed and sealed at the distillery. With these new pouches, all our customers are now able to easily refill the bottles at home, saving you £4 per 700ml of gin. For recycling, you simply pop the freepost stamped pouches provided directly into the post box – no envelope required.

This new innovative recycling scheme is the first step of our sustainable development journey.

We hope to have a fully biodegradable refill by 2025 as part of our overall green strategy.
