Flexi-Hex was conceived in 2018 by twin brothers and keen surfers Will and Sam Boex. Their concern with the amount of plastic pollution they were observing in the ocean and on beaches, coupled with their background in design, led them to create a sustainable paper-based alternative to plastic packaging.
The patented Flexi-Hex sleeve was born. Flexi-Hex’s sustainability, strength and adaptability has resulted in rapid expansion into new industry sectors, most recently launching into the drinks industry. Today, over 25% of the UK distilleries use Flexi-Hex packaging and over the last 24 months, they have removed 389km of bubble wrap out of the packaging industry.
“With the number of Scottish gin distilleries growing, we are proud to support a movement to increase the visibility of an innovative sector. Having a dedicated day to celebrate Scotland’s gin makers on a global scale is a fantastic way to highlight the passion, people and processes behind the brands.”
