Brand new business, Batch & Co, launches a category-first; non-alcoholic cocktail mixers, drawing ingredients and expertise from the best in the world, bottled in Australia.
Now everyone can make bartender-worthy cocktails and mocktails at home, just in time for summer.
Batch & Co products are one-stop mixers, one bottle of juice, syrup and shrub, designed to deliver home entertainers consistency, efficiency and balanced flavour… every time.
Batch & Co is the brainchild of award-winning bartender, Swedish-born Melbourne-based Thomas Kiltorp, who was inspired by a phrase he heard over and over across the bar, “I wish I could make cocktails like this at home without the hassle.”
Thomas, a former winner of The Age Good Food Guide Bartender of the Year, and the man behind of some of the most exciting offerings on Melbourne’s cocktail scene including Richmond’s iconic The Collection Bar, The Red Hummingbird, nominated for Australia’s Best New Bar, and The Emerald Peacock, not to mention Melbourne’s first Nordic bar, du Nord, has been a bartender for more than 20 years.
The experience, knowledge and passion of more than two decades behind the stick are in every bottle of Batch & Co. Batch & Co launches just in time for summer, for cocktail parties, Christmas parties, pool parties and barbecues with two mixers: Guava, Strawberry, Vanilla & Shrub and Spiced Pear & Fig.
Thomas says: “A great cocktail has a balance of sweet and sour, mouthfeel and viscosity. Achieving that balance was what I focused on for Batch & Co; to get the hint of fig, to get the pear, to get the spices to come through in the after-palate, not full of sugar. It took me 18 months just to create the two launch flavours.”
Match your favourite Batch & Co mixer with either gin or rum or tequila or sparkling wine, or anything else your imagination inspires. And make great mocktails, too. Thomas, after years as a bartender, understands that bars need consistency and flavour for their consumers and that people want to create great tasting drinks at home, whether they are non-alcoholic or not. With Batch & Co, you can swap out the alcohol for apple juice and lime or tonic water and ice, so everyone can feel part of the celebration.
