Kocktail launches at John Lewis – Retail Times
Premium creator of world class cocktails, Kocktail, has announced its first listing with John Lewis & Partners.
Less than two years since its letterbox cocktail club subscription arrived to shake up doorstep drinks delivery, the team is preparing for an autumn launch with the British department store.
Founded by two best friends who were missing bar quality cocktails during the first national lockdown, the John Lewis launch marks a huge milestone in the Kocktail journey.
The range includes a brand-new drink which is exclusive to John Lewis, Pumpkin Spiced Espresso Martini. A perfect serve to sip on cosy autumnal evenings, it’s ideal for every seasonal occasion, from Halloween to Thanksgiving celebrations.
With all drinks designed by award-winning bartender and Chief cocktail curator, Neil Donachie; Kocktail puts premium ingredients and top-quality spirits at the heart of all recipes.
Co-founder at Kocktail, Andrew Hutchinson, said: “We are delighted Kocktail will be available online and at John Lewis department stores from September. It’s a huge step for us as a team and we are honoured to have the opportunity to share our carefully crafted drinks with even more cocktail lovers across the country.”
John Lewis alcohol buyer, Daisy Sherwood, said: “John Lewis are really excited to launch Kocktail. With each recipe created by expert mixologist Neil Donachie the flavours are delicious. They will be a great addition to our alcohol department both in stores nationwide and online.”
Alongside the Pumpkin Spiced Espresso Martini exclusive, customers will also be able to find three other varieties of Kocktail’s 500ml bottled cocktails – the multi-award-winning Espresso Martini; Cherry Cola Old Fashioned and Chocolate Negroni.
Perfectly timed for the festive season, two brand new premium gift sets will be available, with three 100ml bottles in each: ‘The Classic Cocktail Collection’ and ‘The Old Fashioned Collection.’
Co-founder Hutchinson added: “Creating meaningful, memorable dining and entertaining experiences at home has become even more important over the last few years. Staying in can feel like going out, with delicious bar-quality drinks, handmade with expert skill and a balance of fresh, premium spirits and mixers. With all the hard work taken care of, enjoy classics with a Kocktail twist and discover all new favourites. Made for sharing, 500ml bottles are the ideal addition to your dinner party table or home bar cart, with gift sets a perfect present to pop under the tree this December.”
