Lockdown inspired Bristol cocktail delivery business launches

Food & Drink | South West

Limewedge, a new nationwide cocktail delivery service operating out of Bristol, launches this week.

Founded during lockdown, the business offers one-off cocktail boxes for four or six drinks, or three, six- and 12-month subscriptions for six drinks with just the right ingredients in each sustainable, fully recyclable box.

Cocktails start from just £4.67 each depending on subscription length.

Behind Limewedge is founder Chris Mead who discovered his love of cocktail-making as a bartender in Bristol and Leicester. A qualified accountant and most recently working as a finance manager, he left his position before lockdown and, faced with a tough job market, decided to change direction and pursue his lifelong passion for creating and sharing craft cocktails.

He comments: “I’ve always loved making someone’s day by introducing them to a new cocktail or flavour combination. Lockdown has meant we’ve taken that experience into our own houses and shared drinks with friends and family over Skype.

“Experimenting is brilliant, but buying big bottles of spirits is expensive and is also a gamble. Limewedge is designed to be an affordable way to try new combinations without having to invest in big bottles of spirits that gather dust. I want each box to be an event, not just a beverage.”

Limewedge cocktail box starting themes include Boozy Brunch, Desert Island Drinks, Dinner Party and Red Light, with cocktails including the Grand Mimosa, Pina Colada and P*star Martini.

Prices range from £27.98 including shipping for a one-off, four cocktail box, to £27.99 per box for a 12-month subscription with six cocktails in each box.
