Double Dutch twins get spot in 30 Under 30 list

The twin sisters who founded tonic and mixer brand Double Dutch have joined a number of leading young European entrepreneurs in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list.

The de Haas twins launched Double Dutch in 2015

Netherlands-born Raissa and Joyce de Haas, who are 28-years-old, were among those named in the Forbes Retail & Ecommerce 30 Under 30 list.

The twins launched Double Dutch in 2015 while studying at university and have sold a total of 10 million bottles across 22 countries to date. All products in the Double Dutch portfolio are designed to pair with high-quality spirits.

“We are really honoured to have earned a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list and to be part of such a globally recognised network. Raising our profile with Forbes is amazing, especially as we are currently raising our third investment round,” said Joyce.

Raissa added: “Being recognised alongside such a prestigious list of globally recognised industry leaders is an amazing acknowledgment of all the hard work we and our team have put in to growing Double Dutch.”

In November last year, Double Dutch signed a six-figure export deal with four retailers in South Africa.

The nine-strong flavoured range is naturally low in calories with no artificial colours or flavours. Double Dutch claims to be the first mixer to launch a quinine-free tonic and focus on molecular gastronomy techniques to create new recipes.
