The premium batched cocktail brand, acquired by family-owned Bacardi in November, is delivering 10,000 sample kits to newly reopened on-trade outlets across Europe as part of an initiative to highlight how anyone, in any type of bar or restaurant, can serve quality cocktails easily, quickly, consistently and at scale – and at the same time generate a welcome new revenue stream.

Evert-Jan Bos, General Manager, TAILS, said: “During lockdown, people have been buying their own cocktail shakers and watching ‘how to’ videos so they can create cocktails at home. As the on-trade now reopens, interest in cocktails has exploded and demand far exceeds the number of outlets serving them. That gap in the market, makes this the perfect time for local bars to offer cocktails for the first time and create their first ever cocktail menus.

“There are no obstacles,” says Evert-Jan. “TAILS opens up the world of premium cocktails to bars which may think they need specialist training, lots of ingredients and don’t have the time to make cocktails. In fact, the 15 seconds it takes to create a premium cocktail with TAILS, more than pays back in increased profit.”

A QR code on the back of every 1L bottle of TAILS links to a ‘how to’ video. The same QR code is on a menu inside each sample kit along with 20cl bottles of the entire TAILS range of classic and contemporary cocktails all crafted using the Bacardi portfolio of premium brands. They include the Classic and Berry Mojito, both made with BACARDĺ® rum; the Passion Fruit and Espresso martini cocktails, both made with 42BELOW® vodka; and the Garden Spritz made with BOMBAY® gin and ST-GERMAIN® elderflower liqueur.

Since it was established in London 10 years ago, TAILS has perfected the crafting and batching of exceptional tasting cocktails in bottles or on draft making them more accessible to people whether they are in a small, local bar or a major music festival.

Following its acquisition by Bacardi, TAILS has now expanded to every market in Western Europe, with more international markets to follow.

In and out of lockdown, Bacardi has been helping its on-trade partners maximize their revenue and is continuing to help them get back on their feet through its ongoing #RaiseYourSpirits initiative.

Always drink responsibly
