If you don't fancy braving the wind and rain this December, new start up Taste Cocktails may have the answer. A subscription service, Taste delivers monthly boxes to your door with premium ingredients to mix bar-quality cocktails.
Taste has now beaten its £60,000 crowdfunding target on Crowdcube with five days to go. The company has raised £63,620.
It initially offered 7.41 per cent equity in type A and B shares, but will increase the equity stake on offer to support the over-funding. Investors who inject more than £2,000 will receive type A shares, which come with voting rights.
Taste was started in a flat in Shoreditch in 2014 by Toby Vacher, and since then has grown to a team of three, with two full-time staff. The packs are available to buy in the City Amathus and in some Fenwick stores.
The company says sales are five times higher than three months ago, but wouldn't give an exact figure.
Recipes include classics from the daiquiri, to modern cocktails recommenced by industry experts and bar mixologists, with mini bottles of Sipsmith to help mix your creation.
