Cocktail Porter is Australia’s first premium online cocktail subscription service. Founded by Cameron Northway, the founder and managing director of drinks experience agency Sweet&Chilli and co-founder of Bondi’s Rocker, Cocktail Porter is ready to deliver bartender designed cocktail kits right to your front door.
The idea is simple; you get a different cocktail delivered each month with each kit containing the latest trends in cocktails from bars around Australia and beyond. Complete with easy-to-follow recipes, pre-measured premium spirits, tailored mixers and quality ingredients, the kits are bulletproof, allowing you to entertain like a pro, with confidence.
“We have designed these kits so that all you have to do is grab some ice, chill the glass, gather some garnish and pop the cork,” says Northway. “We wanted to create a cocktail concept that saved Aussies from having to run around store to store finding the right bottle of alcohol, the right mixer and appropriate garnish.”
With that simplicity firmly in mind, combined with everything you need delivered to you, you’ll be able to make your favourite bar-level cocktails at home. The Cocktail Porter will launch with four signature, one-off classic cocktail boxes and a limited edition monthly membership box. Each cocktail is tweaked with a bar quality twist, think espresso martini with grated dark chocolate, the classic gin martini with choice of vermouths, treacle old fashioned, bloody mary with a dash of turmeric vinegar and a limited edition spring cup spritzer with Tanqueray London Dry Gin & Ciroc Ultra-Premium Vodka to mix things up.
Curated by Northway and his team of recognised Australian bartenders, each kit will be delivered on the 14th of each month if purchased through subscription and will make between 14-18 cocktails per box, which will kick off any soiree.
“We are sending the recipe and the bottles. You don’t even need to have a cocktail kit at home to make it – use a mason jar or Tupperware to shake up your cocktail. It’s less prep, more play and bang for your buck,” explains Northway.
As part of the launch, the first 100 customers to sign up will receive 25 per cent off their first box, taking the price from $135 to $99. Built for those who love to entertain, or to give a gift that’s a little bit different, Cocktail Porter is making it easier to have everything you need for a great night in your home.
