The DIY cocktail sector has grown with the launch of the Bernooli Smart Craft Cocktail System, an app-connected Bluetooth spout that accurately measures pours.

The Bernooli Smart Craft Cocktail System features a Bluetooth spout that accurately measures ingredients

Created by at-home entertainment group Bernooli, the system features patent-pending Bluetooth ‘smart spouts’ that automatically measure each pour as guided by the Bernooli Cocktail Discovery App, described as a “cocktail library”.

The spout dispenses accurate portions of each cocktail ingredients based on instructions from the app. The app itself features cocktail recipes created by bartenders across the world and can filter user preferences.

Bernooli also offers ‘Hardware Bundles’ that include traditional barware accessories for home bars.

“Spirits are a US$70 billion industry and account for over 50% of commercial alcohol consumption. But in the home, spirits make up less than 20%,” said Colin Matthews, founder and CEO of Bernooli.

“Why is that? For most of us, making cocktails is daunting. We would love to serve a delicious cocktail but don’t know what to make, how to make it or what ingredients we need. Bernooli makes creating exceptional cocktails accessible, easy and fun.”

The Bernooli Smart Craft Cocktail System is available for pre-order now, however the ‘smart spout’ will not be shipped until December this year.

Finest Call Premium Cocktail Mixes recently predicted that at home cocktail-making would be one of the biggest spirits industry trends in 2016.
