How big are the bottles?

Our 'Crew Serve' bottle is 1L and contains 10 servings. 

Our Ready-To-Drink Cans are 200ml and designed as one serving. 

How do I know what’s in each cocktail?

Each bottle label shows the cocktail name then a list of the main ingredients below it. The full list of ingredients can be found under the product listing on our website.

Do I need to mix them when they arrive?

No. Our cocktails are all pre-mixed so you just need to chill them in the fridge then ‘shake awake’ when you’re ready to pour.

What is the shelf life of each cocktail?

There is no shelf life on our bottled cocktails due to the alcohol content, however once opened we recommend they are refrigerated and consumed within 3-4 weeks. 

The canned cocktails have a 12 month shelf life.

The liquid has bits in it, is this ok?

Our cocktails are made with fresh ingredients. The ones containing citrus can separate over time but this is totally expected and you just need to shake the bottle to mix it together again before serving.


How can I place an order?

The best way to order is one our website.  If you would like to send to multiple addresses then it's best to place separate orders.  If you are placing 10 or more orders at once all to different addresses please contact us and we can help make this process as easy as possible for you.

How should I serve my cocktails?

When you’re ready to pour, each cocktail should be shaken awake.  Each bottle label will give a recommendation for the glass type and garnish to be used.
