Business Transitions: Wixology Candle Co. set to release cocktail-inspired soy candles; TrinSoft celebrates 20 years

▪ Wixology Candle Co., a Lexington startup, is set to launch a new line of cocktail-inspired craft soy candles Saturday . The line will feature four core scents — Bourbon Neat, Whiskey Sour, Sidecar, and Mint Julep — and one seasonal special, beginning with Barrel Aged Cider, all of which are made in Lexington.

Each candle is made from 100-percent U.S.-sourced soy wax, is poured by hand, and features an accompanying cocktail recipe on the label. The candles are packaged in old-fashioned glasses that can be used as a cocktail or drinking glass after the candle has been used.

Wixology Candle Co. plans to give back to the community and is partnering with local charities to donate a portion of proceeds to support local causes.

“In founding Wixology Candle Co. we aspired to create more than a profitable business; we want to support charitable organizations that impact the community in a positive way,” said Alex Janesz, Wixology co-founder.

Products will be available for sale online at beginning Sunday and in select retailers soon after. Contact co-founder James Vermillion III with questions at 859-684-2511.
