THE COCKTAILS

Which cocktails are in the range?

Our current range includes: Bramble; Cosmopolitan, Espresso Martini, Hemingway Daiquiri, Knickerbocker, Long Island Iced Tea, Margarita, Mojito, Negroni, Old Fashioned, Original Rum Punch and our limited edition Seabird.

How big are the bottles?

We have two different bottle sizes.  Our 'Captain's Serve' bottle is 20cl and designed for two people to share (or one generous measure for a thirsty Captain!) and our 'Crew Serve' bottle is 1L and contains 8-10 servings.

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 on the back of each bottle.

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?

The shelf life of our cocktails range from 2 months to 12 months depending on the drink.  We've been able to extend it by using new bottling techniques and carefully selected tapper seals as well as by adding a trace of potassium sorbate to prevent fermentation.  


ORDERING

How can I place an order?

The best way to order is by using the SHOP section of 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.  

Is there a minimum order quantity?

Our minimum order quantity is two of our small bottles or one of our big bottles. 

Can I send a gift message?

Yes absolutely, you can add a gift message and choose a gift card when you go through the order process.  Each gift message is handwritten and included in the box.

The contents of my delivery is damaged. What should I do?

STORING AND SERVING

Upon delivery, drinks should be stored in a cool dry place away from sunlight and then chilled in the fridge just before drinking.  Our cocktails can separate over time, just shake the bottle when ready to drink.
