Melbourne-based bottled cocktail company The Everleigh Bottling Co. has joined the portfolio of independent spirits company Proof & Company.
The Everleigh Bottling Co. was founded by longstanding hospitality professionals Michael and Zara Madrusan, and produces bottled cocktails inspired by old-world elegance.
Damian Kaehler, general manager of Proof & Company, expressed his pride at welcoming the brand to the Proof & Company portfolio.
“We are honoured to be partnering with The Everleigh Bottling Co. and warmly welcome them into our portfolio for distribution. Michael and Zara are passionate individuals and have made significant impact in our industry. They have successfully curated an extraordinary suite of brands that brings the bar to your home. Their story has deep synergies with Proof and Company; we’re of the same DNA and look forward to what’s to come from this partnership,” he commented.
The Madrusans own and operate the Made in the Shade group, which includes venues and brands such as The Everleigh, Bar Margaux, Heartbreaker, Connie’s Pizza, The Everleigh Bottling Co. and Navy Strength Ice Co.
The current range of classic cocktails, sparkling cocktails and non-alcoholic sparkling cocktails will be available through Proof & Company from 7 June, alongside a new release in the non-alcoholic sparkling cocktail range.
