From Humble Beginnings
We are Black Lines, an East London-based team who love what we do; Bottled Cocktails & Cocktails On Tap. Between us we’ve spent time in food, drink, business and design and together, we love things that taste great. We also love a bit of a challenge. It’s why we’ve set out on a mission to change the way people see cocktails. Over the past two years, we’ve worked our socks off to prove that there’s a different way to do things; beautiful cocktails don’t need to be restricted to expensive, once-a-month treats.
Instead, we see traditional cocktails as the perfect base from which to build drinks that we really believe in – cocktails that don’t cost the earth; cocktails for anytime and anywhere; cocktails that taste bloody fantastic, whether that be in bottle or on tap.
We make what we like and we like what we make.
That’s about the most important criteria we live by; we don’t do things we don’t like doing.
We don’t like using cheap ingredients to make cheap drinks. We don’t like rushing products out to market when they’re half-finished. We don’t like garnishing our cocktails with candy floss to make them more Instagram-able.
Since day one, we’ve worked endlessly to create cocktails that speak for themselves, cocktails that don’t have to apologise for being poured from a tap or bottle and cocktails that we’re proud to say are ours. It has meant chasing the best ingredients and never compromising on flavour and it’s led us to collaborate with some of the best distilleries and venues in the industry.
