Craft Cocktails is a new range of bottled cocktails, hand mixed and bottled in Dublin 7 using premium sprits, 100% natural ingredients and some serious bartender know-how. The award-winning team at BAR 1661 (winner of Ireland’s Best Cocktail Bar 2019) have poured their passion and expertise for crafting exceptional drinks into this colourful collection of premium bottled cocktails.
The bright range has launched with six cocktails expertly made for ease of serve – just chill, shake, pop and pour straight from the bottle, over ice. The range has something for every taste, such as the perennially popular Strawberry Daiquiri; rum, strawberry and lime; the Aviation cocktail, a lively gin concoction with cherry and violet liqueurs giving its pinkish hue; and the classic Old Fashioned made with bourbon, bitters and sugar, a recipe that really lives up to its name, having endured for nearly 200 years.
Craft Cocktails are made without chemicals, using natural ingredients, handmade syrups, cordials and infusions. The Strawberry Daiquiri, Aviation, Old Fashioned, Raspberry Negroni, Pornstar Martini and Tommy’s Margarita are available in two sizes, a 200ml bottle that serves two (€12.50), and a 700ml bottle that serves seven (€35), perfect for sharing. The bestselling is a 200ml mixed bundle, a rainbow box of all six flavours priced at €75 with free shipping.
Craft Cocktails also offer a ‘message on a bottle’ personalisation option where people can add their own messages, which resonated with people trying to connect remotely, e.g. gifting people a Happy Birthday or Happy Engagement cocktail with a personalised message, to celebrate when they can’t in person. The personalised label is designed, printed and shipped on the cocktail of choice within 48 hours.
BAR 1661’s ‘lab’ is a dedicated production facility for Craft Cocktails, where the team can even create bespoke cocktails to specific flavour profiles, and can print custom labels, illustration or stationary designs to make a truly unique and individual cocktail. Craft Cocktails can also cater for corporate gifting and events, no idea is too big or small.
The range is available to order from craftcocktails.ie, starting at €12.50, with secure delivery anywhere on the island of Ireland, or collection from BAR 1661, Green Street, Dublin 7, just off Capel Street. Craft Cocktails are also available at over a dozen retailers nationwide including Fresh Good Food Markets, Mitchel and Sons Off Licenses, and Decent Drinks Club at The Circular to name a few. Craft Cocktails have also partnered with a number of restaurants including Allta, Mr. Fox and Woodruff Stepaside on their restaurant home delivery boxes.
Dave Mulligan, founder of Bar 1661 says:
“Craft Cocktails is about much more than survival for our little cocktail bar. It’s a way to bring our products to people’s homes, not just for lockdown but well into the future. Craft Cocktails is our passion and expertise transcending our Dublin 7 location and coming straight to your door.”
