'Blasted' was started after a fruitless search for plain, attractive and affordable etched bottles in which to store a rag-tag collection of spirits.
The apothecary-style bottles (above) were the original idea. We now produce many other designs on bottles, carafes and glasses. Scroll down to see more.
Attractive, affordable and usable
Attractive enough to be left out in plain sight.
Affordable so that you decide to buy and so that you can add to your collection.
Usable. Not so large that they are too heavy when full, not so small that they require continual refilling.
These are one-off designs, often inspired by the bottle shape.
Blasted using grit: recyclable with no chemicals used
The designs on our bottles have been etched onto the glass by grit blasting. This gives a more even, uniform finish than etching either with acid or by laser.
We use silicon carbide grit to etch. It is recyclable and can be re-used many, many times. So unlike with acid etching, no unpleasant, corrosive chemicals have been used to produce your glass design.
Our designs are permanent and will never wash or wear off. They will survive a wash in the dishwasher unlike printed glassware.
Our bottles are delivered empty. You just add your favourite tipple. Check out our recipe pages if you need some inspiration!
