Who we are

At MOTH we’re here for cocktails, company, and conversation. That’s why we make the most delicious cocktails in a can – so that special mix can happen anywhere. Hands up – we’re obsessive. Every sip delicious and distinguished. Our cocktails are classics, and our ingredients are second to none. At the same time – we’re not snobbish. We don’t talk in master mixologist lingo. We have no fancy bar or dress-code. And we believe in fair prices for great drinks. Because when you’ve got good friends and fine blends, what more do you need? Mix of total happiness. MOTH.

We are one of the fastest growing FMCG brands, re-writing the rules of RTD cocktails, and facing unprecedented growth. Following our incredible growth journey in the UK as the UK’s #1 premium RTD brand, we launched into the US 5 months ago and are growing from strength to strength and expanding distribution this summer.

Our success is down to the work that our magic MOTHs do, we hire exceptional people to do exceptional things.
