THE STORY BEHIND SMITH & SINCLAIR – OUR REBRAND
Written by: Diogo Pestana | Posted: 10 October 2018 | Modified: 08 November 2018
Hey there, didn’t recognise us? Thought so, it’s because we’ve had a complete makeover - the whole shebang. British confectionery was a dying art, Co-founder, Melanie Goldsmith, decided enough was enough and Smith & Sinclair were going to switch things up a little. What better time to talk about it than today, when we can proudly announce that we've just received a £2 million investment to fuel our product innovation and retail experience on a global scale.
British confectionery was a dying art and that’s where we decided to step in. We wanted to save the nation’s tradition and be at the forefront of innovation but also making being an adult more fun. Our products and experiential activities give our audience a multi-sensorial experience that they will never forget, we have become the Willy Wonka of London. We want to sprinkle joy and a pinch of awe to the standard day to day life – bringing you brand new products that challenge the norm.
Well, we believe it’s always cocktail ‘o clock so we’ve carefully created a bunch of boxes perfect for 6 occasions – 6 boxes, 6 ways to enjoy Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies.
That’s not all, our brand-new product range – the Edible Fragrance, is a newcomer to our shop. We wanted to bring a playful side to the way you make and Eat Your Drink. We bring you 3 flavours which are vegan friendly and gluten free.
As we are the alcohol innovators, we have mastered the art of the Edible Cocktail and we are now proudly 100% vegan. But we didn’t stop there, our 10 flavours have a new and improved recipe that will blow your mind. We present to you brand new flavours such as the Pineapple Bellini with Passionfruit sugar and the Mocha Espresso Martini with Coffee Sugar.
