Today I am excited to welcome Cocktail Bar providers, Social and Cocktail as my brand new shiny Blog Sponsors.
Cocktails are renowned for adding a certain touch of class to an event, as well as looking and tasting amazing.
I hand over to Damien Higgins to tell you all about the Brand…
Who are you and what do you do?
“Social and Cocktail is now the most visited on-line resource for Cocktail Recipes and Cocktail Bar Reviews in the UK.”
“Due to the popularity of the website, the company added a new dimension to its business at the end of 2013, offering cocktail packages for home and corporate events, from birthdays and hen parties to Christmas office parties and product launches.”
“We are now venturing into the Wedding Market.”
When & why did you start your company?
“The original Social and Cocktail website was first created in May 2012, with the events side being incorporated into the business at the end of 2013.”
“The site was born out of frustration at trying to find any good cocktail sites on the web which catered for cocktail drinkers, as opposed to the drinks trade.”
“Resources to help you make the perfect cocktail and read up on local cocktail bars were few and far between, so Social and Cocktail was developed to help cocktail lovers, and those just becoming acquainted with cocktail culture, continue their cocktail adventure.”
What inspires you?
“I am inspired by the challenge of spreading the joy and excitement of cocktail culture to people all across Scotland, and soon the rest of the UK.”
Do trends influence your work?
“There are certain cocktails which come in and out of fashion.”
“A classic example was the Brazilian World Cup of 2014 – which helped highlight the popularity of Cachaca and the Caipirinha cocktail.”
“Due to increasing demand, we ended up adding the classic Caipirinha to our Premium Events Menu and the Passion Fruit & Chili Caipirinha to our Diamond Events Cocktail Menu.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“From turning a small cocktail blog, created in a bedroom, into the UK`s Number One resource for cocktail recipes and cocktail bar reviews.”
“We are now also the most popular Cocktail Events service in Scotland.”
What do you see the future of your company?
“To continue serving the best cocktails imaginable to customers through our Social and Cocktail Events service, and expand on Wedding Reception provision.”
“We also plan to open an on-line store in 2015, selling branded cocktail kits, shaker, glasses etc”
Thank you so much to Damien and his team for coming on board. I look forward to collaborating over the next few months.
