Cocktail Candle by Old Vine Candles



The Old Vine Cocktail Candles are a fun twist on the wine bottle candle. Made using aqua blue bottles and in fragrances to remind you of your favourite drinks!

Our newest favourite cocktail! Sweet, vibrant, fresh, and bursting with lychee fruit. Just like the drink, this will conjure up images of exotic and far away tropical places. 

One of the world’s most popular summer cocktails, this fragrance is refreshing and sweet, a tropical blend of pineapple and coconut.

Things to note:
As these candles are made from wine bottles, their shape, and shade of colour can vary. Most will have a domed base, called a punt meaning the candle can only burn down this far and leaving a small amount of wax around the dome. To accommodate the different types of wine bottles, they pour some candles higher than others, to ensure all candles have a 60+ hour burn time.


The first time you light your candle, it is important to allow the wax to melt right to the edge of the container. This is called a melt pool. Allowing a full melt pool guarantees an even burn (no tunnelling). And maximum fragrance throw.
As a general rule, burn the candle a minimum of 3 hours the first time and for at least 2 hours at a time after that.
Do not burn your candle or more than 4 hours at a time.
Do not burn in a draft. A draft may provide more oxygen to a flame which may cause a hotter, uneven burn.

Before each use, trim the candle’s wick to 5mm. This stops smoking and dripping, creates an even burn pattern and your candle will last longer. Never move or relight your candle until flame is out and completely solid. If the wick becomes too long while burning, extinguish flame and then trim. Be sure to not over trim the wick. If the wick is too short it will result in too small of a flame and the melt pool will not reach the edges of the container. Center the wick after each burn and do not allow trimmed wicks, matches or other objects to remain in the candle. Don’t blow your candle out. Put your candle out by dipping the wick using a bamboo skewer or other similar object, into the melted wax and straightening the wick. This stops the wick smoking and will help with relighting next time. Never use a container’s lid to put out flame. We suggest that you purchase a pair of wick trimmers from us which are specially designed for easy care of your candle, however, a pair of nail clippers or scissors will also work.

Be careful when handling, cut glass can be sharp. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep free of any foreign material. Burn candles away from soft furnishings and other combustibles. Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
Always burn your candle on a level, heat resistant surface and away from drafts.
Only burn your candle to the last centimetre to prevent glass cracking. Do not allow water or moisture to mix with the wax. This can cause the wax to splatter or pop. Caution, container may become hot.

Try to store your candle cool, dry area, below 25 degrees, and keep away from direct sunlight. On extremely hot days you might notice the candle sweat slightly. This is nothing to worry about and reabsorbs into the wax when the temperature goes down.
