COMPANY NEWS

MIXED UP COCKTAIL CO REPORTS STRONG GROWTH AND EXPANSION IN 2022
Company Expands into Multiple Markets and Launches New Flavors

Silver City, New Mexico, September 14, 2023Mixed-Up Cocktail Co (Mixed-Up), creator and processor of Ready-to-Drink (RTD) canned cocktails under the parent company Little Toad Creek Distillery, today announced the company’s notable 2022 market growth. Among many of the highlights that round out the fiscal year-end include introducing two new flavors – Lemon Raspberry Mojito and Apple Bourbon Mule – into the market for a total of eight flavors, expanding the team to 80 employees, and entering the Colorado, California, and Texas markets for consumer reach. The company has also won multiple awards this year, including double gold, at esteemed spirits tasting competitions.

 

“Mixed-Up Cocktail Co has proven a strong choice among consumers, especially against RTDs from household-name companies,” says Teresa Dahl-Bredine, co-founder of Mixed-Up Cocktail Co alongside husband David Crosley. “Our cocktails are made with all-natural ingredients, 10% ABV, and with no chemicals or preservatives — qualities that modern customers demand. They can immediately taste the difference and we’re receiving re-orders when competitors are not. I am very excited to see what we’ll accomplish in this upcoming year.”

 

In 2022, Mixed-Up Cocktails Co met its goals of introducing a variety of flavor profiles beyond its original Classic Mule, including:

  • Mules: Mojito Mule, Grapefruit & Gin Mule, Watermelon Jalapeno Mule, and the latest seasonal Apple Bourbon Mule

  • Ritas: Classical Margarita and Mango Margarita from house-made blue agave spirits

  • Mojitos: Lemon Raspberry

 

To support growth for 2023, Mixed-Up Cocktail invested heavily in experienced employees, such as:

  • Sales Manager

  • Ambassadors

  • Director of Marketing

 

Mixed-Up Cocktail Co has shown strong favor in tasting competition and continues to earn the approvals of judges worldwide, recognized with:

  • San Francisco World Spirits Competition: 1 Double Gold, 1 Gold, 2 Silver

  • New York World Spirits Competition: 1 Double Gold, 1 Gold, 1 Silver

  • The Fifty Best: 3 Double Gold, 2 Gold, 1 Silver

  • PR%F: 4 Double Gold, 1 Gold, 2 Silver

Mixed-Up Cocktail brought the product straight to the consumer: 

  • Total Festivals/Events - 50+

  • 500+ Total Tastings 

  • Launching into California, Colorado, and Texas

About Mixed-Up Cocktail Co

Mixed-Up Cocktails are made by Little Toad Creek Brewery & Distillery in Silver City, New Mexico. Little Toad Creek first opened in 2012 in the remote mountains of the Gila Wilderness. Over the years, the company (founded by New Mexico natives Teresa Dahl-Bredine and David Crosley) has operated multiple tasting rooms and developed countless recipes for beer, spirits, cocktails, and food.

In 2020, Little Toad Creek launched Mixed Up Cocktail Co, insisting on bringing only the best ingredients to the can. They distill, blend, can, and pasteurize at their own facilities, which allows them to ensure the quality of ingredients and final product. They are currently upsizing their facility, adding two new stills and state-of-the art can filling, pasteurizing and packaging equipment, which will allow them to go from the current 1000 cases per week capacity to 30,000 cases per week.  Production is slated to begin at the new facility in December 2024. Mixed-Up Cocktail Co is continually investing in the growth and sustainability of the company.
