Soho Street Cocktails (SSC) uses the finest quality ingredients, including real fruits with no artificial flavours or colours to produce high-quality pre-mixed cocktails. SSC argues that bars and restaurants make high margins from the sale of cocktails but the serving time of several minutes per cocktail causes either a backlog of bar orders or requires additional staff. The company asserts that its drinks, in contrast, are poured directly into a cocktail shaker with ice, shaken for 8-10 seconds, then served to the customer. SSC stresses that it has found success in bars and restaurants. SSC's current range consists of three ready-mixed cocktails, namely Espresso martini, Pornstar martini, and Raspberry Daiquiri, with more flavours in the pipeline. It has submitted its product for sampling and testing with major retailers, including Waitrose, Sainsbury, Tesco and Costco. SSC states it will use the investment for additional production runs to ensure sufficient stock to cater to larger orders from distributors and festivals.
