Sweet success in sight for alcoholic confectionery firm with global expansion plans

A confectionery firm that pioneered ‘alcoholic cocktail gummies’ has announced the first step in its global expansion with a move into Europe and the US.

London-founded company Smith & Sinclair, is preparing to enter Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands in August, before launching nationwide across the US at the end of September.

Established by Melanie Goldsmith and Emile Bernard, Smith & Sinclair specialises in alcoholic confectionery, with products such as edible cocktail garnish sprays, effervescent tablets that create instant cocktails and alcoholic ‘adult only’ sherbet dippers.

Since it began on a stall on Berwick Street Market in the heart of Soho, the business has grown to work with retailers including Harvey Nichols, John Lewis, Amazon, Sainsbury’s, Scribbler and Oliver Bonas.

Melanie Goldsmith, CEO and co-founder of Smith & Sinclair, commented: “Smith & Sinclair was born out of our recognition that there was a gap in the market for a generation who were looking for something more experimental and theatrical when it came to home entertaining and gifting.

“We’ve watched the business grow over the past six years with such excitement, and with ongoing support from our team and our investors, we are thrilled to be introducing our products to a global audience.”
