Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Is it just me or is there a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel right now? We’re slowly emerging from another lockdown; spring is springing as winter withers and the time is upon us to start adjusting to the newest version of normal.

We’ve got the hospitality sector reopening to look forward to- buzzing! Imagine that, going to your fave bar/ pub/ restaurant again… seems unbelievable, almost. It’s officially been TOO LONG since we got to enjoy that sensation. Not to mention the businesses themselves who I’m sure are dying to get back to doing what they do best.

For Mockingbird, we have two products launching next month to look forward to. It’s been just over 6 months since the initial debut, must be time to grow the family! Can’t wait to share all the deets over the next couple of weeks with you. Can you guess what they could be?

It’s been super fun collaborating with some other incredible brands recently. We did an International Women’s Day mocktail with Square Root Soda – they create craft soft drinks made from fresh fruit, go check them out! - as part of the Club Soda Amazing alcohol-free cocktails by awesome women’ campaign they did– you can watch the video of the ‘Be Bold’ drink we concocted here on our YouTube channel. Don’t forget to subscribe while you’re there.

We’ve also been lucky enough to work with OTO CBD on an Instagram giveaway make luxury, award winning CBD products that benefit your lifestyle, sleep, beauty & drinks! Featuring pure CBD at optimum levels, alongside handpicked botanicals and always 100% natural, vegan & cruelty free. Thank you to everyone that entered. It’s so interesting and rewarding getting to experiment with the functional ingredients in both OTO & Mockingbird, together.

MEDA & Mockingbird did a juicy little mix up as well this month which involved 5 bundles of their orange and pineapple flavoured CBD drink to help reduce inflammation and 5 bottles of Mockingbird given away to 5 lucky winners on our social media. You can catch the footage here and recreate the ‘Discover & Recover’ AF cocktail at home.

It’s also been an absolute honour to now feature with the prestigious Fenwick website and department stores alongside other non-alcoholic brands like the brilliant Lucky Saint. They’ve launched a brand-new selection of Low & No for you to go have a peek at. ‘’Fancy a tipple free from alcohol? Discover our ever-growing range of Non-Alcoholic-Drinks. Perfect for those looking to add a few healthier additions to their bar cart whilst still enjoying the classic taste of their favourite beverages.’’ Don’t mind if I do!

So, onwards and upwards for life to return over the next few months. Stay safe and keep following the rules, we’ll get there in the end. Remember to support your locals and indies where you can as everything opens up again - Love ‘em or lose ’em, as they say.

Warm regards & AF margs,
