If you are looking for something to sip on each night while cooking, or your hosting some people you don’t like working too hard for, then get one of our bottled cocktails!
If you are doing a good deed and looking to gift our delicious drinks, there’s a few options for you. If you have no idea what the lucky thing would like, we offer gift cards in various values here. If you have some idea but aren’t sure, you can take our quiz to guide you to the perfect gift. If you know exactly what they want, pick the item and select ‘gift’ where you can also add a personalised message.
Each cocktail pack includes premium spirits, mixers, garnishes (where relevant!) and all the tips & tricks of pro bartenders to give you step by step instructions to make around 20 serves (on average) of your chosen cocktail!
Depends on which product you are looking at. We detail exactly what you will need and what comes with the package on each product's page. You shouldn’t find yourself buying anything other than the really fresh stuff we don’t want to leave in a cardboard box.
It depends on your drink of choice, but each box makes between 8-35 serves. That’s an average of about $10 per cocktail, made by you in your home, at top tier level. If you have left over ingredients, we will be able to provide you with more inspiration, to keep your cocktail library growing!
On the pack you pick, it will specify if equipment is needed. Bar equipment is a luxury but not totally necessary. If you don’t need copper bar tools for the mantel, there are plenty of home hacks to keep you shaking and stirring. Empty mason jars make great shakers (when sealed). And any large glass can be made into a stirring glass.
That being said: it is considerably easier (and yields far greater results) if you invest in proper spoons, juicers and strainers. Your guests will also be far more impressed.

Depends on which product you are looking at. We have detailed exactly what you will need and what comes with the package on each product's page.
Each box makes between 6-11 serves. That is only $7-$8 per cocktail! Practically pays for itself.
The beauty of a bottled cocktail means minimal equipment is needed. The equipment you need is listed on each product page so there are not any surprises when it comes to making your drinks. Bottled cocktails will be ready to pour straight into your favourite glass. Just have the glass and some ice ready.
