Glasgow Industry Raise £1500 for The Drinks Trust
Glasgow Cocktail Collective is a cocktail delivery service with the trade at heart, helping bars generate sales through the collaborative initiative.
Cocktail lovers can choose drinks from their favourite bars and see them delivered contact-free the same day to their doors, ready to enjoy in the comfort of their homes.
Starting during the lockdown, the new direction for GCC has seen the cocktail delivery service now on delivery platforms including Deliveroo, The Bevy Store, collection via Vodka Wodka and through their own GCC app.
Founding members of the Glasgow Cocktail Collection (GCC), including brilliant bars such as Vodka Wodka in the west end, Blue Dog, speakeasy Kelvingrove Café, Redmonds and Phillies of Shawlands.
The team at GCC have raised a whopping £1500 for Scotland’s hospitality charity, The Drinks Trust, by donating sales of their drinks to help bartenders that have found themselves out of work.
On top of this, the Collective aims to support all of the trade with their initiative, buying all stock from local sources and wholesalers and distributed back to local businesses and their families.
Fraser McIlwraith, founder of Dark Art Drinks and founder of Glasgow Cocktail Collective explains:
“By choosing to buy a cocktail from GCC, you’re supporting local and helping keep your favourite bars in business.”
NEW DRINKS FOR AUTUMN
Launching last week, the talented bartenders from the Collective have now created new drinks and packages to tempt tastebuds this autumn.
New drinks on offer include a Ribena Margarita – bursting with blackcurrants with added tequila, and the passionfruit favourite Naked Porn Star martini that’s served straight up without Prosecco. There’s also a Blood Orange Margarita created by Phillie’s of Shawlands with Cascabel Blanco, Cointreau, fresh blood orange juice and a squeeze of lime that is sure to please.
For those looking to try something different, customers can order one of their new cocktail packs that combine some of their favourite cocktails from bars including East End hangouts St Lukes and Redmonds. With everything in there from a refreshing Coconut Daiquiri to a classic Negroni, the drinks also come with ice and garnish for perfect serves at home.
Fraser continues: “Our ambition for the GCC has always been to keep the cocktail culture alive in the city and deliver the best drinks from the city’s best bars, for an at-home experience.
“Now more than ever, with the new restrictions in hospitality, we continue to offer an excellent service that allows our customers to enjoy premium quality cocktails in your own kitchen.
HOW TO ORDER
“It’s even easier to order our drinks, with Deliveroo and The Bevy Store delivering across the city with one click. Our new drinks are in response to feedback to our customers, and available to enjoy this weekend.”
Drinks are delivered chilled to customers’ door, complete with ice and garnish. All cocktails are available to order now. Find them on Deliveroo, The Bevy Store, The GCC App or click and collect from Vodka Wodka.
