“Laura McCarthy developed a taste for commerce at the tender age of eight when she ran yard sales outside her parents’ home. By 12, she was selling on Ebay and eight years later she founded Drink Botanicals, which produces infusion kits for budding mixologists.
McCarthy got the idea for her business when she found herself paying a premium for fancy gin and tonics with “garnishes” such as rose petals and juniper berries. She started researching how to make them at home and towards the end of 2017 approached the owner of her local off-licence with her kit idea.”
