7th September 2020 will see the official launch of The Drinks Drop, – the discerning drinker’s at home cocktail delivery service – bringing ready to sip top flavor cocktails to drinks aficionados nationwide. With an increase in demand for restaurant-quality produce to be easily delivered and enjoyed at home, The Drinks Drop will now allow people to savour expertly mixed cocktails prepared by teams from the world’s best bars, without having to leave their front door.
The online platform will first launch with a collection of twenty ready-mixed cocktails, created by twenty partner establishments; ten in London and ten in Manchester. The cocktail recipes used will be exclusive to The Drinks Drop and designed in tandem with some of the industry’s most prestigious brands and spirits including: Belvedere vodka, Don Julio tequila, Hendricks gin, Nc’nean Scotch Whisky and Santiago de Cuba rum. Partner establishments mixing up the cocktails will include award-winning London icon, Artesian, specialist whisky bar, Black Rock and Crazy Pedros and Refuge both based in Manchester.
Fabrice Limon and Barrie Wilson, Creators of The Drinks Drop comment, “We are thrilled to be able to support the bar industry regain momentum following the COVID-19 crisis, creating a unique business opportunity for both brands and bars alike. With an increasing consumer demand for enjoying professional-level food and beverage at home, we are sure that The Drinks Drop will help us all transition back to normality and far beyond.”
The Drinks Drops platform will initially launch three services allowing consumers to receive boxes of six cocktails the day after placing an order, (available nationwide), same day bike delivery of individual cocktails, (London and Manchester only) and a bespoke cocktail creation service for a truly unique encounter, perfect for large events, celebrations and personal pleasure. Ranging in serves from straight up, on the rocks, highball and lowball, all consumers will need to do is chill, pour and share, with no further mixing needed.
Whether the nation is looking to impress their guests when entertaining, pair topnotch food with high quality cocktails at home or simply ensure Friday drinks at work get that little bit sweeter, The Drinks Drop will provide the necessary tools in order to #StayInHighSpirits.
Each of the bars has created cocktails that will use the Highball Brands portfolio of exciting and premium spirits, including Takamaka Rum and Dangerous Don Mezcal, and that reflect and celebrate the bar’s style and personality. All cocktails will be priced at £7.50 and will be delivered as reusable single-serve pouches, chilled and ready to drink. The delivery will initially launch in London and Manchester and will be on a monthly rotation with different top cocktail bars taking part. The service is launching with the following bars taking part in April:
London: Black Rock, Laki Kane, Kwānt, Dandy, Doña
Manchester: Cottonopolis, Crazy Pedros, Liars Club, The Jane Eyre, CBRB, Edinburgh Castle, Grindsmith Coffee Roasters
If consumers are looking for something a little more than individual cocktails, they can also order a full-sized bottle of spirit from Highball Brand’s premium spirit range such as Takamaka Rum or Dangerous Don Mezcal
Fabrice Limon, owner and founder of Highball Brands says ‘We’re excited to be able to create a cooperative that supports our community and gives back to our beloved industry. We’ve all been thrown into the most challenging of times and, whilst we don’t believe that cocktails can save the world, we wanted to be able to spread a little joy and support in any way we could.’
Cocktails will be priced at £7.50 each and will be available to order from here. Orders can be accepted any time however the delivery days are; Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. (Order by 3 pm for same-day delivery)
