Mr Trotter’s ‘Alcohol-Inspired’ Candles – The Great British Smell

British snack pioneer Mr Trotter’s, winner of this year’s Quality ‘Savoury Snack of the Year’ Award, has created a trio of alcohol-inspired candles to celebrate his favourite British drinks

Designed to aromatise even the most stylish dwelling, the three characteristically British smells will include candles redolent of:

  • India Pale Ale (IPA), with aromas of sweet malted barley and hop notes of lemon, mandarin and lime;
  • Gin, with notes of juniper, lavender, rosemary and lemon;
  • Whisky, modelled on an Islay malt with sensuously earthy notes of drying peat.

All three are dressed both in glass and in smartly branded tins.

The inside of each tin contains the globally important words of Winston Spencer Churchill: “a cat looks down on man, a dog looks up to man, but a pig will look man right in the eye and see his equal”.

Rupert Ponsonby, a co-founder of Mr Trotter’s, snorts:

They are aimed at boars every bit as much as sows. For too long, candles have been the preserve entirely of women. Mr Trotter’s aims to bring a more masculine offering to the market, created by fragrance specialist Bahoma of East London to add to their existing roster of exquisite products.

Pigs are known to have the sharpest noses, seeking out the finest things in life. We aim to mirror their prowess with our candles”.

James Bruce, CEO at Bahoma, says:

We are hugely proud to be working with Rupert and the rest of the team at Mr Trotter’s on this project. We are creating a really fun set of products with some wonderfully Great British smells”.

Mr Trotter’s Home Fragrance products are available from, delicatessens, gift shops, farm shops and on-line retailers. Nicola Christopher of Bahoma, – 020 7836 9960 / 07951 772737.
