Bibo Barmaid, a smart, self-serve cocktail machine that allows consumers to create expertly crafted mixed drinks with the touch of a button, announces its partnership with the Garden State’s Award Winning Artisan Spirit Company, Claremont Distilled Spirits. Claremont has signed a deal to license Bibo’s exclusive pouch system.
Bibo’s creator, Debra Walker, has a mission to simplify the way for consumers to enjoy great cocktails in the comfort of their own homes, “With the rise of the cocktail culture in the US, having the ability to enjoy great tasting cocktails at home is the ultimate convenience. They are quite complicated to make and Bibo takes the guesswork and expense out of the process. Our cocktails ($4.) vs. a restaurant cocktail ($15.) makes cocktail enjoyment affordable to everyone.”
The 3-part system includes: Bibo Barmaid countertop appliance, Bibo Cocktail Mixer pouches and a shot of alcohol. The Bibo Cocktail Mix pouches feature naturally delicious flavors like Cucumber Melon Martini, Margarita, Tangerine Paloma, and Appletini.
Making Bibo cocktails is super easy: turn it on, fill the reservoir with cold water, insert a cocktail mix and alcohol pouch, place glass with ice on the drip tray, pull down the handle and press the “Mix” button – in 20 seconds, voila a drink!
Bibo is the perfect cocktail solution to recharge after work or for any social gathering without the hassle. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who wants to maximize mingle time over hosting time at a party, or simply relax with a drink at the end of a long day. The product will be in hotel chains for in-room cocktail ease in Q4 2017.
Last December, Bibo was voted “Coolest Kitchen Gadget of the Future” along with six other esteemed products by Architectural Digest’s Market Editor during a WABC-TV segment.
Ms. Walker, inventor and entrepreneur comments, “During a girlfriend get-together, I realized there had to be a better way to make cocktails. No one wants to miss their own party standing behind the bar mixing and serving drinks. So, I invented the world’s best ‘bartender’. And, to complete the Bibo system we needed a spirits’ partner; Claremont is the right fit: an award-winning distillery and phenomenal product!”
Claremont Distilled Spirits, Inc., located in Fairfield, New Jersey was founded under the premise that world class spirits could be produced in the “Garden State” and where local potatoes are used in the production process of its vodka. Claremont is proudly owned and sold by native New Jerseyans.
Amy Sutton, Co-Owner & VP of Sales and Marketing of Claremont Distillery says, “We are proud of our heritage. Our attention to detail throughout the production process results in true craft spirits. Claremont Vodka is the first and only craft spirit produced in New Jersey to be awarded a gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition the most highly regarded spirits competition in the world.” In addition, Wine Enthusiast Magazine named Claremont Vodka a Top 100 Spirit of 2016, giving it a 93-point rating.
Sutton added, “The spirits industry has been trying to figure out how to help consumers enjoy spirits in their home for many years, a majority of consumers find making cocktails intimidating; Bibo is the solution we have been waiting for. It’s extremely simple to use and the results are craft cocktail worthy. We are excited about the pouch launch for our vodka brand in December.”
