Registration notes: Angels' Share Glass Ltd was founded in 2012 by father and daughter, Tom Young MBE and Karen Somerville. This tartan is for their company, representing the glass craftsmanship of their product collections and their inherent links to whisky and, its pairing partner, water. The colours are associated with the Angels' Share Glass brand. The threadcount represents the story of Angels' Share Glass; 82 and 14 threads in teal blue marking the 82 years of Tom's life and the age he began glassblowing. The Angels' Share is a Scottish phrase associated with the evaporation process of whisky cask storage, and in 82 years anything from 56%-81% of whisky could have evaporated from a cask. These numbers are also incorporated in the design, with rich gold and black representing the whisky mystically being captured by the 'Angel'. The white overchecks notes the partnership of Tom and Karen since 2012, which is also marked with 12 bright gold threads across the main brand colour of teal blue.
