Kocktail - Making a brand based on culture!

Kocktail was co-founded by two best friends in the Summer of 2020. Born out of a desire to enjoy a taste of our favourite cocktails from the comfort of home and unable to find anything that tasted as good as the drinks created by award-winning bartenders, they decided to take matters into our own hands.

The founders Emil and Andrew believe you deserve to enjoy beautifully fresh, premium, bar-quality cocktails at home with minimum fuss, so they teamed up with a great friend and international award-winning barman, Neil Donachie. Neil was the senior bartender at the famous Savoy Hotel's Beaufort Bar, he was the bar manager at Kenny Atkinson's Michelin starred House of Tides restaurant and he co-owns the spectacular Mother Mercy bar, so it's fair to say he knows a few things about making a great drink.

Kocktail initially started as a Kocktail Discovery Subscription Club and has now expanded to also include one-off Kocktail collections (available all year round), 500ml Kocktail bottles (perfect for sharing with friends and family) and single Kocktail giftboxes (the perfect gift for a cocktail lover).

During the chat with Co-Founder, Andrew Hutchinson we discuss:

  • Andrew's career and journey to date
  • Making a business based on a culture
  • The power of a strong board
  • Producitivity hack
  • Unexpected business successes
