Through lockdown, the UK’s cocktail lovers have realised that wine and beer sometimes aren’t enough to quench one’s thirst. Plus, making really good cocktails is hard – and needs a lot of difficult-to-source ingredients. Not everyone wants to start infusing their own libations and tinctures and some cocktails just can’t be recreated without years of experience and expertise.
For a taste of your favourite bar’s signature cocktail at home, The Drinks Drop is the innovative solution. They have worked with 10 London and 10 Manchester bars to create pre-made cocktails that are delivered right to your door. The Drinks Drop has really sought out the finest cocktail makers from award-winning venues, such as Artesian Bar, which was voted the World’s Best Bar four years in a row. Each recipe is exclusive to The Drinks Drop and is made from the finest spirits and ingredients.
Artesian Bar’s The Drinks Drop cocktail is the Tanqueray Gimlet, made from Tanqueray No. Ten gin, grapefruit cordial and absinthe. Other options include the Plum Negroni from Hawksmoor Manchester; Getaway Driver – a mix between a gimlet and martini – from Swift in Shoreditch; and the refreshing Corpse Reviver Highball from Bethnal Green’s Coupette made from Eight Lands Vodka, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, Green Chartreuse and lemon verbena tea. The cocktails are delivered in beautifully designed individual pouches and most just need chilling or pouring over ice.
Fabrice Limon and Barrie Wilson, creators of The Drinks Drop say, ‘We are thrilled to be able to help the bar industry regain momentum following the Covid-19 crisis, creating a unique business opportunity for both brands and bars alike. With 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 Drop delivers a set of six cocktails of your choice to your door the day after you order and if you’re in London or Manchester they also offer same-day deliveries of a single cocktail. By working directly with bars that take a proportion of the profit from sales of cocktails, The Drinks Drop is also helping to support the struggling hospitality industry through its recovery from lockdown and continued restrictions on gatherings. If there’s something you really want, The Drinks Drop will even create a bespoke cocktail for you via a digital consultation and deliver it to your home.
A single punch is £7.50 and a bundle of six cocktails is £45. A bespoke cocktail package, including consultation with a world-leading bartender and development of a drink catered to your tastes is £150 including delivery of six cocktails; thedrinksdrop.com
