Sting In The Tail

Stand: 20A24
  • Gift

Sting in the Tail has been designing and manufacturing products in the UK for very over 25 years. We are based in the English Lake District and assemble all our products in our headquarters on the edge of Morecambe Bay. We always endeavour to source and manufacture as many components and products in the UK as possible. The design of many of our products reflects the heritage of our country with a modern twist. Our products are often designed for niche areas of the giftware market, enabling our customers to stock unique products for sectors that are seldom supplied. We are known for having a large selection of products suitable for men. Great for getting you noticed on social media and developing a loyal following. The products in our ranges use our tried and tested formulations that work and are not a gimmick! We recognise that packaging has a very short life before ending up in the bin, landfill or even the oceans. For 26 years we have tried to keep packaging to the minimum, choosing to use containers with a future use or recycled, functional packaging.
