Drinks Distilled launches partnership with Crossip and Seed Library

09 January, 2023

Recently launched spirits, bar, and drinkware site Drinks Distilled has announced a partnership with non-alcoholic spirits brand Crossip and the Ryan Chetiyawardana-founded Seed Library.

The collaboration sees the launch of a low-abv menu and cocktail kit developed by the Seed Library team and will be unveiled at a launch event at the bar featuring a discussion between Drinks Distilled, the co-founders of Crossip, and La’Mel Clarke, Seed Library floor manager and Drinks International columnist.

“Bars are where we and consumers in general go to discover and trial new spirits and that’s why we are so excited to be teaming up with Seed Library and Crossip to help drinkers navigate the world of no, low and reduced abv spirits and serves,” said Nicola Jones, co-founder of Drinks Distilled.

The launch event at Seed Library also marks the official launch of Drinks Distilled, a curated online drinks retailer and educator that gives consumers a guide to spirits curated by some of the UK’s leading industry figures including Jason-Candid Knusel, Emily Chipperfield, Jake O’Brien Murphy, and La’Mel Clarke.

“Drinks Distilled was inspired by one aim - to make the process of understanding and selecting spirits, bar and drinkware, simple,” said Jones.

“Myself and my co-founder James have always appreciated that the pursuit of the perfect drink in bar settings is made effortless by the skilled and knowledgeable people who were on hand to guide us, which is why each of the bottles on our site has been handpicked by experts.

“In our opinion, there’s nobody better to ask to help create the ultimate home bar.”

The Drinks Distilled x Crossip and Seed Library cocktail kit will be available for purchase on the Drinks Distilled website on Wednesday 11 January, the same date as the launch event at Seed Library.
