The Dragon Slayer Distillery Gin bottles are manufactured at Stoelzle Flaconnage in Knottingley, UK. The bottle design and gin, which is created from locally sourced ingredients and medieval spa water, are rooted in the story of culture and heritage of dragon slayer folklore. The North East UK is full of folklore stories, songs and lore which go back often beyond record. The Dragon Slayer Distillery is located in Sockburn Hall, the home of Sir John Conyers, a famed dragon slayer. Two other Stoelzle Flaconnage’s Knottingley-manufactured bottles were nominated for the prestigious UK Packaging Awards. The Spirit of One Gin (Global Ethics Liquor Co.) 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, and in some cases even the closures for the bottles, as such was the case with Dragon Slayer Gin bottle.
