Where are you made?

We make all our drinks in London, at an approved food production and licensed premise (we got a 5* Hygiene rating!).

How long do your cocktails stay fresh?

The cocktails stay fresh up to a month in the fridge or longer in the freezer. At room temperature they stay fresh for no longer than 2 weeks. The cocktails won't ever go off or bad, but rather they lose vibrancy and will start to taste old.

Because the pouches are compostable and not plastic, liquid can and will evaporate after 2 weeks at room temperature, which is why we suggest storing them in the fridge or freezer. When storing them in the fridge or freezer they will still slowly evaporate as the pouches are permeable. We don't recommend storing them longer than 2 months.

My drink is cloudy and separated, what gives?

Because we use all natural products and fresh juices our cocktails will separate a bit when they sit.

But fear not! A quick shake and everything will feel right in the world again.

Do your cocktails really fit through a letter box?

Yes, up to nine cocktails fit in a box that will fit through the majority of UK letterboxes.

We use three different size boxes and can fit a different number of cocktails in each.How many cocktails fits in each box depends on the size of each cocktail and how many of those are ordered.

For example, the large box can fit up to 6- 125ml cocktails or 2- 125ml, 6- 100ml, for a total of 8.

Our small box fits 1-2 cocktails and measures 130 mm x 165mm x 23mm

Our medium box fits up to 2-5 cocktails and measures 245mm x 165mm x 23mm

Our large box fits 5-9 cocktails and measures 355mm x 165mm x 32mm

Over nine cocktails has to ship in two boxes, and won't fit through your letterbox.

If you are worried about the box not fitting through the letterbox drop me a line at hello@cocktailsbymail.co.uk and I can double check it all for you and make sure I find the right solution!

Should I keep my drinks in the fridge?

Yes, we recommend keeping them in the fridge or freezer, cold and ready to drink.

But they can be kept at room temperature for a good amount of time, so don't stress if you take them on a road trip or the train.

Oops, I left my drink in the freezer overnight!

No worries, nothing bad will happen it might just get a bit slushy. In fact, go ahead and leave it in there, it will keep it fresh even longer.

OMG my cocktail came in plastic!

But guess what, it isn't plastic...

The pouches are fully biodegradable packaging made from a range of natural products, including paper, eucalyptus fibre, cassava and corn starch.


So feel free to chuck them into you compost bin. We would advise disposing of them properly, not just thrown into your backyard. It still takes a while for them to break down and we don't want any little critters nibbling on them.

Some geeky details for you

Our pouches will will return back into water, carbon dioxide (CO2) and biomass without eco-toxicity.
