ABOUT US

Modern day dating is awkward and weird.

Determined to engage people in something beyond a swipe, Co-Founders Melanie & Emile set up a dating night in East London which served adult pick 'n' mix- which led to the birth of our Edible Cocktails!

Since our first order from Imbibe (the UK's largest Alcohol Trading Show), we have served & sold our products in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, John Lewis, Fenwick & many others.

We also run our own sell out events & continue to collaborate with incredible brands to bring our playful flavour experiences to life for everyone to enjoy.

Dating is weird and awkward. We wanted to change this, so we came up with an adult dating night that involved playful activities, including Edible Cocktails and a sweet themed bar. It soon became clear the cocktails were breaking the ice, as orders came in for parties and events.
This sparked a stall at Berwick Street Market, where £3,000 was raised over two weeks which was enough to build a website.
Two days after the website launched, an order from Imbibe, the UK's leading Alcohol trade show show came in for 20,000 units. After asking ourselves several times “how are we going to do this?” a few school kitchens and a synagogue later, we’d moved in to our own site (an army barracks), and the process was underway.
Since then we’ve secured our own permanent site, a partnership with John Lewis and worked with some pretty impressive clients. We’ve grown from a team of two, to a weird and wonderful family of 17, and we’re looking for more talent, take a look here.

Emile Bernard

Innovation Director
1) What do you do for Smith & Sinclair? ▼

I'm Co-founder and in charge of all innovation for Smith and Sinclair. When people say to me: "would you rather be thought of as a funny man or a great boss?" My answer’s always the same, to me, they’re not mutually exclusive

2) If you were a Smith & Sinclair Edible Cocktail, which one would you be and why? ▼

If I was a pastille I would be a Long Island 'High' Tea because everyone is always a bit confused to what ingredients I'm made up of.

3) Tell us a fact about yourself: ▼

I secretly love the song "Maniac" from the film Flash Dance
