Where are glogg products made?
Our bottles are manufactured responsibly in China out of a largely automated factory. We have a well-established relationship with our Chinese manufacturer and conduct factory visits, to ensure that both standards for staff and quality standards for our products are well maintained.
All bespoke printing, lasering, retail labelling and packing is done by our team here in the UK.
All glogg products that are manufactured overseas are ocean shipped and never airfreighted, in order to minimise the environmental impact of transportation.
Glogg is committed to supporting jobs and manufacturing in the UK wherever possible and we’re in the process of getting our first UK produced products manufactured.
What are glogg bottles made of?
All of our bottles are made of grade 304 18/8 stainless steel, which is highly corrosion resistant and food safe. Grade 304 is the grade used most often in the food and beverage industry, as it doesn’t retain or impart odours or tastes.
What are glogg bottle tops made of?
We offer a range of stainless steel, bamboo and plastic tops. Our plastic tops are made of Polypropylene (PP), which is a very durable, yet soft BPA-free plastic. The sealing rings are all made of silicon.
Do the bottles have any lining?
Glogg bottles do not have any interior lining. One of the advantages of stainless steel over aluminum is that it is non-reactive and non-leaching, so it’s not necessary to line the bottles. All of our bottles are made from 100% grade 304 stainless steel, and this includes the bottle threads on our classic style bottles.
Are your bottles BPA-free?
Yes, all glogg products (including the plastic bottle tops) are free from Bisphenol A (BPA).
Is the paint on the coloured bottles safe?
Yes, bottles are painted with non-toxic coatings.
Can glogg bottles be used for liquids other than water?
Yes, Glogg bottles are suitable for holding any cold drink, including milk, cordials, acidic drinks like fruit juices and smoothies and even alcohol. If using your glogg bottle for these types of drink, we recommend through cleaning between uses. Take a look at our glogg care page for hints and tips to keep your glogg bottle super-clean and to maximise its lifespan.
Can glogg bottles be put in the freezer?
It is perfectly safe to put your glogg in the freezer to thoroughly chill it before putting your drink in it. If you want to put it in the freezer with liquid in it, ensure that that you leave to top off, as the liquid will expand as it freezes and could mis-shape the bottle or even burst it.
Can glogg bottles be used for hot liquids?
We do not recommend using your glogg for hot liquids. All glogg bottles are single-walled so they conduct heat, making the outside of the bottle hot. Glogg bottles are not designed for heating up liquids in e.g. on camping stoves.
Can my glogg go in the dishwasher?
All the silver, stainless steel finish bottles can be washed in the dishwasher. We do not recommend putting the coloured bottles in the dishwasher, as this may shorten the lifespan of the painted finish. The plastic tops and silicone seals can all be washed in the dishwasher or by hand. Take a look at our glogg care page to find out more.
