Charlie’s Classic Cocktails: The Ultimate Christmas Treat.

Charlie Bolton himself

With 12 luxury bespoke drinks to choose from, Charlie’s Classic Cocktails is the perfect Christmas indulge this year: taste tonic in style, this festive season.

Launched in January this year (2021), Charlie’s Classic Cocktails brings top bar enchantment to the home, with bespoke, ready-to-serve classics. Fashioned in gift boxes of four or six individually-bottled cocktails (complete with Charlie’s unique Signature Spritz garnish), Charlie’s Classic Cocktails removes the need for mixing, shaking or stirring. 

Charlie’s Classic Cocktails was set up by Charlie Bolton, who has spent the better part of two decades working in the restaurant and bar industry in some of the most well-known bar groups in Leeds, Manchester and London, including Oskar’s Bar at Dabbous, Burger & Lobster, and Callooh Callay. Charlie trained under highly-qualified bartenders from The American Bar at The Savoy, and 69 Colebrooke Row.

However, after a stint in London, he decided to move back to his home county: Yorkshire. Passionate about high quality drinks, Charlie created a bespoke, at-home, bottled cocktail service, – that would recreate the quality of a luxury classic cocktail, within the comfort of people’s own homes. 

Charlie said: “I wanted to bring true luxury into bottled cocktails, which means no compromise on quality or environmental footprint. To me, the cocktails represents what modern luxury really means: environmental sensitivity, authenticity in craft and ingredients, beauty, and convenience.”

With a permanent signature collection (and select limited-edition offerings), customers can choose to indulge in all of the same cocktail, a perfectly-paired combination, or a mixed selection (for those who want to try a little bit of everything, or something new). Next day delivery, combined with a prolonged shelf-life, – makes Charlie’s Classic Cocktails the perfect treat or gift for this year’s festive season.

The cocktails are handcrafted in Yorkshire by Charlie himself, and the range includes a Black Russian, a Sazerac, a Rusty Nail, a Vodka Martini, a Negroni, an Old Fashioned, a Vesper Martini, a Manhattan, and a Gin Martini. The drinks use ONLY premium spirits, including Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Beluga Noble Vodka, and Dolin Chambery vermouth.

Also, each cocktail selection includes a unique invention from Charlie himself: his Signature Spritz (which captures the essence of a lemon or an orange twist with a simple spray), – completing the full cocktail experience, including garnishing. The drinks are 20% ABV and two units each, and the orange and lemon Signature Spritzes are entirely organic: they contain no artificial flavours or preservatives.

Then there’s the six-cocktail luxury gift set. The presentation box is as much a part of the experience, as the drinks themselves. Embodying modern luxury through uncompromising craft (coupled with environmental sensitivity), each box is 100% sustainable, recyclable, and handcrafted.

Also, with Charlie’s Classic Cocktails’ Bottle Reuse Project, customers can send back their glass bottles free of charge, to be thoroughly cleaned and reused. The brand prides itself on their commitment to luxury, and their circular British supply chain, and the luxury gift box marries the two, effortlessly. 

Charlie’s products are available to purchase on his website, and through Hedonism Wines (the only bottled cocktail to be sold through this site), The Whisky Exchange, and Master of Malt.
