Crafthouse Cocktails

Crafthouse-CocktailsChicago-based bartender Charles Joly, who won the final of the Diageo Reserve World Class competition in 2014, created a range of bottled cocktails, called Crafthouse Cocktails, in 2014. Joly oversees the production of each bottle in the Crafthouse collection, which currently includes the vodka-based Moscow Mule, Tequila-based Paloma, and gin-based Southside. Created using natural ingredients, the range is available in the off-trade in Ohio, Michigan and Colorado. In August last year, Svedka Vodka owner Constellation Brands acquired a minority stake in Crafthouse through its new start-up investment arm, Constellation Ventures.
