Bottleproof was formally created in 2016 following a few years of product R&D and market research.

Recognising the increasing consumer demand for cocktails and understanding the complexities and hurdles faced by trade outlets to consistently serve cocktails, Bottleproof set up with the mission to create cocktails designed specifically for the hospitality trade to enable the “perfect bar serve”.

Our perceptions of what the on-trade needed back in 2016 was justified as we now sell to many leading hotels, pubs, restaurants and theatres across the UK and beyond. The demand for cocktails is ever increasing and following COVID, the difficulties faced by trade outlets in being able to make good quality cocktails has never been more apparent.

Our growth is not just symptomatic of changes in consumer drinking habits but also of the recognition in the quality cocktails we have created and that is in no small part due to the great team we have at Bottleproof. The awards we have won are testament to that!

Our mixologist team, production team and sales team are steered by Charlie and Mark who between them have over 50 years hospitality industry experience as suppliers and operators.
