Hospitality group Lollipop unveils home-delivery cocktail range

Immersive hospitality group Lollipop has unveiled an innovative way to help the business survive the Covid-19 lockdown which has closed UK on-trade venues.

The London-based group has launched Cocktails by Lollipop, a range of bar-quality bottled cocktails which are available for delivery - with their garnishes - to homes around the UK. 

The range includes Aperol Spritz, Sunny Sangria, Espresso Martini - made with a special 'foaming formula' - and The Valentina, a one-litre serving of Bellini. Each comes in a striking coloured bottle with its garnish in a separate pouch.

Bottles can be purchased individually (as a small one-serving bottle or large three-serving bottle) or in boxes of six or 12. Monthly subscription boxes are also available.

Lollipop founder Sebastian Lyall said the group had made the move to retain staff and keep its connection with customers during the lockdown, which is expected to last for several weeks.

"We have decided to bring bar-quality cocktails, along with garnishes, to your home so you can enjoy a delicious cold beverage in isolation with flatmates or family," he said.

"We are all drinking at home now so why not continue doing that and also support a small business which needs your love and care."

Lollipop's venues include The Bunyadi, the world's first naked restaurant, World War Two-themed cocktail bar The Bletchley, "cook your own" drinks bars ABQ London and Paris and The Grid, an escape room inspired by the television series Black Mirror.

Many drinks industry businesses and individuals have announced schemes to beat the UK lockdown, from online training sessions for bartenders to virtual whisky tastings.
