Do you enjoy craft cocktails? Of course you do! How about mixing them in the comfort of your own home? Who wouldn't? But it can be tough to find all the ingredients, recipes and learn the proper techniques, plus what if you don't like the bottle of black walnut bitters you just bought? Introducing the craftiest startup in San Diego, Speakeasy Co.
Speakeasy Co. (originally Thirty3Club) delivers two unique craft cocktail recipes with step-by-step directions, instructional videos, all of the ingredients required to mix four drinks at home and the latest and greatest from the industry every month. To keep it fresh, they partner with different bars, bartenders and craft distilleries to introduce you to rare products. The startup is bridging the gap between the bar and your home, bringing the craft cocktail experience directly into your kitchen, making it convenient and easy to become your own bartender with the best ingredients from around the country.
Josh Jacobs, one of the co-founders, says the idea stemmed from two successful companies the founders admired: Blue Apron and Birchbox. "We love the experience of discovering tasty recipes, learning new cooking techniques and creating something ourselves from the Blue Apron meal kit boxes. Birchbox, on the other hand, offers sample sizes, an element of surprise and an online store to complement the monthly subscription." He believes that "Speakeasy Co. is the Blue Apron for craft cocktails combined with Birchbox's forced exploration and comprehensive online store." Speakeasy Co. "does not just want to offer education, but also house a repository of recipes, tools, glassware and spirits online, creating a single hub for all things cocktail."
If you enjoy drinking, discovering and doing, then Speakeasy Co. is for you. Liquor.com says, "This is the box for you if you need a one-stop shop for all of your cocktail needs." You could order textbooks and spend hours chatting with your local bartender, or you could sign up for Speakeasy Co. Empower your inner bartender, find your favorite spirits and order better drinks than James Bond with this monthly subscription.
