To make the snacks in our favourite watering holes as interesting, tempting and delicious as the drinks now on offer behind the bar.
Which is why we launched Made For Drink. Premium Bar Snacks - we make intensely delicious snacks that pair beautifully with a drink, inspired by different drinking cultures around the world.
You walk into any decent pub and the craft beers, boutique spirits and interesting wines on offer are boundless, all presented beautifully and served by somebody who really cares about their profession.
So when it came to snacks, why was there still just a pack of dusty crisps served from a cut out cardboard box? Don't get me wrong, two pints of lager and a packet of crisps is a fail safe combo, but sometimes you just want something a bit more special...
Enjoy something special from Made For Drink's range of artisan bites
In 2016, I set myself the challenge of making something that aligned as perfectly as it could to my vision and to bring that product to market in one perfect customer -one of my favourite pubs in the world: Heston Blumenthal's The Crown at Bray.
We fine-tuned our products with valuable feedback from Heston's pubs and, within a few months, began trading with both The Crown and The Hind's Head in Bray, and Rick Stein's The Cornish Arms and Stein's Deli in Padstow. In January 2017, we then became luxury department store Fortnum & Mason's most successful new product launch ever. It’s a truly amazing feeling to make something yourself that is bought, served & enjoyed in some of the world’s most famous establishments.
We source and craft our snacks with care, following three simple rules:
- They must be delicious – we strive to create mouth-watering bites that bring out the best in your drink of choice
- They must be authentic – our products tap into a rich world of tasty inspiration, specially sourced to champion the cultures that inspire them
- They must feel special - we track down quality ingredients from passionate artisan producers and prepare them simply to preserve their intense natural flavour
I love what I do and I hope this shines through in all our products.
Cheers and enjoy!
