The Pintail Story behind our new Flowers Range ...

New for Spring '15 at Melbury Gallery

Pintail Candles were started by James and Fiona Long back in 1993. They started the business at Christmas, designing, maufacturing, marketing and delivering decorative pillar candles all by themselves from home.

They very soon moved into fragranced tin candles, for which they have been amongst the market leaders for many years. 

As more space was needed for the growing company, they moved into a converted milking parlour and employed their first member of staff, as the expansion continued they moved onto their current site in the South Lakeland fishing village of Flookburgh.


The Pintail Candle factory is situated in the Lake District on the northern shores of Morecambe Bay. Pintail employ highly skilled local craftsmen and women to manufacture their impressive range of fragranced candles using only the finest raw materials to produce a superior quality candle. They endeavour to carry out extensive development work to bring their customers, the very latest trends in colour and fragrance and export their candles to many countries worldwide.

Pintail are now in their 22nd year and although a very busy company they are proud of their high standards of customer service that all customers enjoy no matter how large or small.

At Melbury Gallery we are delighted to launch Pintail's new Flowers Collection for Spring '15. In keeping with this season's trend for fabulous florals, Pintail have created a stunning new collection in striking colour combinations with brand new fragrances such as White Iris, Honeysuckle, Daffodil and Sweet Pea.

The tins have beautifully designed labels and make a perfect present burning for up to 14 hours ... surround yourself with a sensory paradise and daydream away with Pintail ...xx
