Joyce added: “I am convinced the Waitrose shoppers will love our flavours like Cucumber & Watermelon as they don’t only work amazingly well with any gin, but are equally delicious on their own. Double Dutch brings that quality restaurant experience at home and makes it super easy for anyone to make easy- to-make, simple and consistent cocktails any time of the day.”
