Dear Valued Customer,

After 11 remarkable years, the Angels at Angels Share Glass are folding their wings. Angels’ Share Glass Ltd will be closing on May 31st 2024.

We’ve been so grateful for your unwavering support. We’ve loved sharing this amazing journey with you. The company has been more successful than we could ever have envisioned when my dad, Master Glassblower, Tom Young MBE, and myself sat down and dreamed up the concept of the original whisky angels.

From our first tentative steps, we’ve really flown not only winning awards from the get-go but bringing employment to our small village and keeping those members of staff as friends. We’ve worked with some of the biggest names in whisky. Our whisky angels, water droppers & specialist whisky glassware have flown all over the world and been a global hit as gifts.

Tom’s pioneering work and expertise in glass-blowing and my knowledge of and passion for the world of whisky has led to me judging the prestigious Scottish Whisky Awards and co-founding the highly successful Fife Whisky Festival.

As vice-chair of the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs (Scotland) and an ambassador for Women’s Enterprise Scotland, I’ve also been able to share my business knowledge and expertise in ecommerce with other female entrepreneurs.

My Dad’s passing last year left a large hole in our lives and in the business. We all miss him dreadfully.

With new, exciting opportunities on the horizon for me, it was the natural time to take stock. As a team, we have achieved so many of our goals and while the decision to close Angels’ Share Glass has not been taken lightly, I felt it was important to go out on a high.

The legacy of Tom Young MBE Master glassblower has been secured by The University of Stirling, which holds his catalogued archive and future exhibitions of his life’s work are planned.

Our fantastic team are not just employees, but friends and we are looking after their interests. I’d like to pay tribute to them publicly for all their support and hard work over the years and to our board of directors.

But it is you, our customer, who have been the backbone of this business. I’d like to thank you personally for your support, loyalty, and friendship over the years. It has been an honour to serve you, and we hope to maintain a connection with you in the future. We could not have done it without you.

Our transition is being managed smoothly and calmly. All pending orders and obligations will be fulfilled promptly.  We are committed to ensuring that your experience with us remains positive until the end. Your satisfaction has always been our top priority, and we remain dedicated to supporting you during this time of change.

Should you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Our team is here to assist you in any way we can.
