Tipple Box is a cocktail making kit that provides the customers with everything they need to make the perfect cocktail at home. Premium spirits, complementary mixers with other goodies are all available as a one-off gift or a monthly subscription service.

While studying a BSc in Biomedical Sciences in 2013, Sonny developed his business with the support of LAUNCH.ed. Sonny was recently named the Raising Star at the WEDO Scotland Awards. Now with three full-time employees and having shipped more than 20,000 cocktail making kits since the company formed in 2014.

Tipple Box has attracted much media attention since its creation, including making ‘best of’ gift lists published by Buzzfeed, Metro, the Independent, Marie Claire and Harper’s Bazaar.

Tipple Box currently rent office space offered by Edinburgh Innovations. An incubation facility next to our own offices, especially for startups and spinouts.  We often buy one-off boxes as gifts to our many judges and mentors who help us throughout the year…maybe that’s why we have so many volunteers?

“LAUNCH.ed gives you that initial support which is fantastic when determining if this is a good idea. It also gives access to facilities you didn’t think of and teaches you things like cash position, balance sheets, and access to workshops.”
