During the challenging times of COVID-19, a shared passion for exquisite cocktails between Jordan and myself turned into what is today known as Bartisans. Born from our home in Mumbai, Bartisans represents the convergence of passion and precision, bringing top-notch cocktail experiences right into your living room.

The Birth of Bartisans: Jordan, brimming with mixology skills honed from the European Bartender School, and existing knowledge from his internship at the Buddha Bar in Dubai, started experimenting with unique ingredients as we spent our lockdown evenings enjoying bespoke cocktails. These sessions were not only a source of relaxation but sparked a brilliant business idea as the response to our cocktail creations on social media and among friends was overwhelmingly positive.

Turning Passion into a Profession: Our Instagram began glowing with comments and shares every time we posted a new cocktail creation. Friends started requesting mixes, and it wasn’t long before the concept of ‘Bartisans’ emerged over a particularly memorable dinner featuring homemade dishes paired with unique cocktails. Jordan’s unforgettable pea cocktail creation was a testament to how boundless our cocktail creativity could go.

Challenges Along the Way: Like many great endeavors, the road was not without its bumps. Initial challenges included sourcing high-quality, natural ingredients during the peak of the pandemic and finding suitable tools that met our precise cocktail crafting needs. The leftover ingredients posed another problem - sustainability was key for us, and we needed to ensure minimal waste.

Overcoming Obstacles: Our approach was straightforward yet innovative. We called upon friends and family to help with sourcing rare ingredients. The recipes were refined repeatedly, taking inspiration from our travels and culinary experiences across the globe, until each cocktail mixer met our high standards. This meticulous nature of crafting cocktails underlined the importance of precision - a crucial component in replicating the same high-quality taste in every batch.

Why Precision Matters: On one occasion, Jordan was experimenting with the proportions of a classic Martini - tweaking vermouth ratios fractionally. This experiment underlined how minute changes could significantly affect the overall balance and flavor profile. It was a profound lesson in the precision of mixology - each milliliter matters, just as in any great art form.

Today, Bartisans stands as a testimony to our journey of transforming simple ingredients into extraordinary experiences. Our dedication goes beyond just mixing drinks; it's about enriching moments and making every sip a celebration of life. As we continue to innovate and expand our range, we invite you into our world - where you can experience the magic of perfectly crafted cocktails at home. Because at Bartisans, we believe that the best mixers not only taste extraordinary but tell a story.

Join us, and let’s make every occasion a memorable one!
