The Bottled Bartender aims to be the final word in premium RTD cocktails. It seeks to specialise in the manufacture, marketing and distribution of single-serve, premium cocktails to the trade, events and home markets. For online orders, it anticipates using a 24-hour courier service.
In 2017 Nick was yearning for a decent cocktail without having to buy expensive ingredients and faff about mixing them. Lo and behold the idea for a high-end cocktail delivery service was born!
A year later, Cosmopolitan published they were 'very excited for this little discovery' while The Sun thinks 'This is the announcement you've been waiting for'. We also received press coverage from The Metro and Pretty 52, causing a surge in website orders while the business was still being trialled from Nick's kitchen!
Our cocktails are designed to deliver the real thing. We adhere to the exact same recipes as a high-end bar, using only branded spirits, fresh ingredients, and experienced staff to make our drinks.
We believe current ready-to-drink (RTD) offerings don't captivate people, offering low ABV, high sugar content, little ingredient transparency and shelf-stable preservation techniques. We will stand apart by offering one of the most premium RTD product available.
We want Events and Trade to benefit from speed of service, logistical ease (not transporting glassware, ice & inventory) and not having to hire specialist staff, while home customers will have access to bar quality cocktails without needing to know how to mix a drink.
The market is growing at an estimated 9.5%pa (total UK value £587m) as cocktail culture moves from bar to home, driven by affordability and convenience.
