Batch & Bottle, a premium range of pre-batched cocktails, announces British model, fashion icon, actress and ultimate dinner party hostess Poppy Delevingne as the face of the brand, bringing to life the uncomplicated nature of the ready-to-pour drinks.
An ideal match for the brand, Poppy is an avid host, entertainer and is known for inviting friends and family to glamorous dinner parties and events, all with an air of effortless sophistication.
Launched in June this year, the innovative move into ready-to-pour serves from some of the world’s best spirits brands complements recent data which shows cocktail consumption increased during lockdown, with 1.2 million more cocktail serves made at home compared to the previous year. In addition, the Ready To Drink category has been growing year on year, with a 15% uplift in 2021 compared to 2020, with at-home drinkers not having the time, ingredients or implements to make cocktails.
With four classic and well-loved serves in the range, Batch & Bottle allows drinkers to simply chill, pour and garnish their glasses and enjoy bar-standard cocktails. The line-up includes a curiously crafted Hendrick’s Gin Martini, a bold Glenfiddich Scotch Manhattan, a cheeky Monkey Shoulder Lazy Old Fashioned and a playful Reyka Vodka Rhubarb Cosmopolitan.
Speaking to her excitement of the partnership, Poppy said: “I love nothing more than having my friends over for cocktail parties or intimate dinners; creating memories that I’ll cherish forever. Having hosted a few in my time, I know how daunting it is when all eyes are on you, which is why I am always looking for simple pleasures that can easily elevate any occasion and make your guests feel special. From the choice of music, to setting the mood with an abundance of candles, or even adding something personal like hand-written name cards, it’s these little touches that can help to create a stunning atmosphere.
That’s why I’m so excited to be partnering with Batch & Bottle, the cocktails are delicious and add a bit of glamour to any party. Each offers something slightly different – from the sweet Reyka Rhubarb Cosmopolitan to the dry but elegant Hendrick’s Gin Martini, it’s almost impossible to pick a favourite. It’s like having your very own bartender in a bottle. What cocktail dreams are made of.”
The Batch & Bottle range has been mixed with precision, delivering impeccable quality and flavour. With each bottle pouring six serves – all that’s needed is to simply chill, pour, garnish and enjoy.
With exciting media partnerships, activations and events with Poppy in the pipeline for 2022, ahead of that, the Batch & Bottle range will be sampling live in London’s Harvey Nichols store, for one week from Monday 6th December, giving shoppers the perfect inspiration on what to serve their guests and enjoy themselves at home this festive season.
In the lead up to Christmas, elevate your next get together or dinner party and toast to the festivities with a selection of pre-batched cocktails from Batch & Bottle, available in store from Waitrose and online at Amazon and clinkspirit.com for RRP £25 at 50cl per bottle.
