This Wellington Company Is Making Pre-Mixed Bottled Cocktails

Elegant, convenient and boozy.

Elegant, convenient and boozy, J.M.R Cocktail & Co has bottled the sophistication of a high street cocktail bar. Handcrafted right here in Wellington, the pre-mixed bottled cocktails boast consistency. The concoctions range from a flirty negroni to a tried and true gin martini. Packaged in 100ml glass bottles, they're perfect for sipping during a scorching Wellington afternoon or slipping into your jacket pocket for whatever reason.

With over 30 years of combined experience in the hospitality industry, it's safe to say that Amy Alexander and Jonny McKenzie know their Sauvignon from their Chardonnay. Knowing a good tipple better than most, Amy has worked around the globe with some of the world's biggest brands while Jonny has previously been involved with Hawthorn Lounge and CGR Merchant & Co. With their love for all things booze, they "want you to enjoy a well-made classic, anywhere."

Everything from mixing to the labels is done by hand to ensure the perfect drink every time.

Seductive and alluring, the negroni is a dry yet zingy refresher that certainly packs a punch. To take the edge off, try serving with a twist of orange. The gin martini is bold and confident — just as it should be, and can be enjoyed with olives or a twist of lemon. The whiskey old fashioned is boozy and full bodied and can also be appreciated with a twist of orange. The Manhattan is a quintessential addition for any whiskey lover.

Crafted to be enjoyed as they come, they can be served chilled or enjoyed with the J.M.R recommended accompaniments.

Although not widely available as of yet, don't fret. You can stock up on J.M.R Cocktail & Co's elixirs at Cultwine and Cocktail Merchant or get your fix from Tinakori Bistro or Little Jimmy.
