Four years ago, a couple of chaps in England decided plain old bottles of alcohol weren’t enough. They needed bling. Thus, Bottle Bling was born, and they’ve been making drinking more shimmering, sparkling and splendid ever since.
Bottle Bling customizes bottles of gin, vodka, prosecco, Champagne, wine, liqueurs and glasses. Bored with your dark bottle of Hendrick’s? Glitterize it. Gin & Tonics need a little extra umph? Have a company throw some glitter on it for you. You personally might not see a need for something like this, but then again, we all know someone who likes to make everything a little bit extra.

The company has more than 50 gins to choose from, and 250 items overall. The bottles are stored at a warehouse and hand glittered, preserving the original label while adding pizzazz to the glass.
“Bottle Bling was created with the love of Glitter,” the company writes on its website. “Who doesn’t love a sparkly gift? We have a passion and love for all things sparkly.”
They’re not alone. Glitter is everywhere these days, from glitter beer to glittery cocktails to glitter beards to glitter tongues. There are even glitter bombs. Anyone who bedazzled their flip phone knows how far a little glitter can go. Bottle Bling is based in England, but unlike other British indulgences like Mermaid Tears Vodka, it’s available in the U.S. A representative of Bottle Bling tells Supercall that a custom bottle can be shipped to the U.S. in about 10 days.
“We do currently have the world’s largest glitter gin collection with over 50 gins to choose from,” the representative says. “We started 4 years ago and have grown to offer shipping worldwide now due to demand.”
A bottle of Hendrick’s will run you around $50 plus shipping, while a sparkling bottle of Aperol l costs around $40 plus shipping. Or maybe you’re more of a whiskey person and would prefer a black glitter-covered bottle of Jack Daniel’s for around $40 plus shipping. There’s something for all tastes.
Outdoor drinking season is nearly upon us. If you want to be that person who catches everyone’s eye with your drink selection, Bottle Bling is here for you.
