Angels’ Share Glass gains Harvey Nichols listing

by Owen Bellwood

Scottish glassware company Angels’ Share has secured listings in luxury department store Harvey Nichols for its range of Christmas gifts.

The Stirling-based glassware company will list its Gin Pig and whisky-filled Christmas baubles in the chain’s flagship Knightsbridge store. Karen Somerville, managing director at Angels’ Share Glass, said: “One of the Harvey Nichols buyers spotted our products and got in touch after being impressed by our premium luxury brand. “Some years ago, when I wrote my business plan, one of my goals was to have a high-end department store place an order with us so I’m delighted to have achieved that – especially with such an iconic retailer as Harvey Nichols. I’m planning a trip to London just before Christmas to see our products on their shelves and that will be a very proud moment for me.” Harvey Nichols will sell Angels’ Share Glass coloured Christmas baubles, which are filled with four regional malt whiskies from independent bottler Douglas Laing & Co, and the Gin Pigs, which contain 50ml of Scottish gin. Bryan Rodriguez, assistant spirits buyer at Harvey Nichols, said: "Angels’ Share Glass products are unique, highly giftable and will offer our Harvey Nichols customers something special this Christmas. “There’s no doubt the quality of the baubles are exceptional, from the handmade lustred glass to the Douglas Laing & Co whisky filled within, they’re a premium gift that we know our customers will love. We are certain the Gin Pig will also be a popular gift this Christmas – individually handmade, no two are the same, making each one unique.’’ The Angels’ Share Glass range will be available to buy in Harvey Nichols' Knightsbridge store and online from mid-October.
