Drink Botanicals Ireland was founded in late 2017 by cocktail enthusiast Laura McCarthy.
Drink Botanicals Ireland is an award-winning Irish business specialising in premium dried garnishes, natural-based syrups, and mixology kits.
In late 2017, Laura spotted a gap in the Irish drinks market, as the gin trend was growing that there was no product available for consumers to make a luxurious gin and tonic or cocktail in the comfort of their own home.
Passionate about mixology, Laura wanted to create a product that enabled consumers to recreate a ‘bar style’ gin and tonic at home using premium botanicals.
Inspired, she started to experiment with botanicals. The Gin Fusion Kit was then born – a kit containing the finest botanicals to create your own premium gin and tonic at home.
New Product Development
Building on the success of the Gin Fusion Kit and securing distribution in hundreds of well-known stores, we then went on to extend our product range and launch other innovative products.
In the Summer of 2021, we launched a range of premium natural-based syrups and wholesale dried garnishes for retail stores and the HoReCa industry.
We offer consumers and bartenders a solution by removing the burden of preparing and making their own garnishes and syrups from scratch, which can be very time-consuming and labour-intensive.
We are proud to now supply hundreds of major retailers, bars, restaurants, and hotels with our product range across Ireland & other European countries.
We provide our customers with a complete bar solution to share exceptional beverage experiences using our premium garnishes, syrups and mixology kits.
