This Dedicated Gin Bar Allows You to Make Your Own Stylish Gin Bottle Lamps

If you’ve reached that sad point when all the gin has been drunk and the lovely bottle has to be thrown out to be recycled, don’t despair.

There are numerous things to do with gin bottles but one of the most inspirational and effective is to turn them into gin bottle lamps.

It’s entirely possible to make your own gin bottle lamp but if you’d prefer to be guided by an expert for your first attempt, now you can.

Glasgow’s first dedicated gin bar Gin 71 is offering guests the chance to make their own gin bottle lamps.

The Gin Bottle Lamp Making Class  is a hands on class where you will be taught everything you need to know to create your own gin lamps.


They provide almost everything you need to make your own stylish lamp, including a selection of gin bottles, lamp template and electrical fittings.

All you need to bring is a small piece of material of your choosing to cover the lamp shade.

On arrival you will receive tea and freshly baked scones before the 90 minute lamp making class.

Then finish off with a perfect gin and tonic serve from the bar and a selection of sandwiches.

There is also an opportunity to buy additional kits on the day to make some additional lamps with your future leftover gin bottles.

The Gin 71 Gin Bottle Lamp Making Class costs £45pp and can be booked online.
