Cocktail Crate was founded in 2012 by 24 year old cocktail lover, Alex Abbott Boyd. Only 1 year out of college, Alex was motivated by a desire to make and sell a product he could be truly passionate about. The first batches were paid for with $5000 raised through crowd funding website Kickstarter. Initially, each bottle was handmade and labeled by Alex in his home borough of Queens and deliveries were made to local stores via the NYC subway. Today, Alex is excited to be working seemingly non-stop to bring the mixers to more and more people who appreciate a really good cocktail!
