Dragon Tamers’ Choose Glass

Posted on:


Dragon-taming twin sisters Lisa and Helen Tse have chosen Beatson Clark to produce glass containers for a range of sauces developed at their award-winning Chinese restaurant.


Lisa and Helen secured a £50,000 investment when they appeared on the BBC’s Dragons’ Den TV programme with their range of Sweet Mandarin Chinese dipping sauces. The sauces are based on secret recipes, handed down through the generations and named after the Manchester restaurant opened in 1950 by their grandmother, Lily.


Glass best preserves the taste and quality of food and drink. It acts as a single-layered natural shell to preserve untainted both the flavour and freshness of products, whilst also adding that little bit of extra elegance too.


Lynn Sidebottom, sales and marketing director at Beatson Clark, which specialises in low volumes for high-end niche food and drink manufacturers, said: “Glass is perceived as a high-quality packaging material but it needn’t cost the earth.”

Do you use a glass water bottle?

Posted on:


Staying well hydrated when it’s hot is definitely a must. Drinking lots of water throughout the day is the best way to stay hydrated and maintain peak mental concentration levels, so with summer just around the corner why not get your bottle water ready?


When choosing a water bottle, there are several factors to take in to consideration; price, health, environment and taste. Luckily, water bottles made of glass tick all of the boxes!

Glass doesn’t leach into your drink, and there are no coatings to worry about- you can stick glass bottles right in the dishwasher.


If you like to save a few pennies you don’t even have to go out and buy a fancy bottle. In fact, why not be a little bit greener and reuse something? For example, a single-serving glass bottle of juice purchased at your local supermarket. Voila!


Water also tastes best out of glass! Do a taste test at home and compare the taste and feel of a glass bottle against other materials. Finally, water looks beautiful in glass bottles. When the light catches the water in the bottle you really feel you are drinking something special.


Do you use a glass water bottle? Is it store-bought, or did you ‘upcycle’ it? Let us know!
