Idea

Launched in June 2014, two old school friends James and Harry saw a gap in the market for a premium product with an innovative and contemporary concept to disrupt the frozen category. With a vision to incorporate the nostalgia of a popsicle with the luxury attributes associated with Champagne, the world’s first Champagne ice popsicle was born.

As our brand grew, so did our product range, and we now offer a range of alcohol and alcohol-free popsicles made with all natural ingredients, real fruit and all with under 60 calories.

In February 2019, we aim to launch new products that appeal to a wider demographic, are appropriate for more occasions, and are in line with consumer trends such as portion control and health.

Highlights:

- £590,000 of sales in the first 6 months of this year (P&L -£65,086 year to date)

- Nationwide grocery listings with Tesco & Ocado. Regional listings with Whole Foods, Musgraves & Spar

- Partnership with Diageo to create a PIMM'S ice popsicle in 2017
