Drunken Berries is an award winning alcoholic Prosecco Mixer brand which can also be drizzled on desserts and frozen into a sorbet.
The recipe was originally created for a friends New year’s eve party by husband and wife (Andre and Gemma) and has since gone on to win 2 Great Taste awards including 2 Gold Stars for the Raspberry Gin Mixer and 1 Gold star for the Blackberry Brandy Mixer.
A fine balance of
puréed berries, caramelized sugar, lemon juice and high quality spirits from an
independent London distiller ensures each bottle is packed with berry flavour without over powering your
dessert or Prosecco.
We are currently not on sale anywhere and this is why we need your help.
We'd love you to be a part of helping us bring something new to the drinks and dessert market and every pledge will go towards:
A social media advertising
campaign - Our first ever
Facebook video achieved 1,400 views and 24 Shares and we would love to make
more. Connecting with consumers and stockists via social media with engaging
videos and recipe-focused content is an effective way to drive
new interest in our brand, keep backers updated and generate sales (estimated
We have created some awesome and exclusive reward packs priced at the same RRP we hope to achieve in the shops (around £5-£6 per bottle) - unfortunately, we have to use a 3rd party fulfilment company to box and ship out to you so this does increase the delivery cost slightly but we promise we are not making any money on the delivery charge.
We hope the delivery charge will be a price worth paying to get your hands on something exclusive, plus you will be able to enjoy a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing you are supporting a small independent business and we will show our appreciation by thanking you personally on Facebook as well.
Production is outsourced to a SALSA accredited third party and packaging and shipping will be done by a third party logistics business so we are ready and waiting to send out your Rewards. However, if we do not reach our funding target the rules for Tesco BackIt state that we cannot send out your rewards and your money will be refunded, so please pledge with confidence and help us spread the word on Facebook.
We will be posting updates and videos on our social media pages so make sure you follow us to find out how we're doing.
You don't need to purchase our reward packs to help us succeed! Please share this project with anyone you think would like to Perk Up their Prosecco – on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, by email, telephone or even a chat over the fence.
Q: What happens if you reach your target and start over funding?
A: If we are lucky enough to go beyond our goal we promise to use any extra money raised for:
Please note that whilst our label design may be subject to slight changes, our great flavours won't!
We cannot sell alcoholic products to anyone under 18. For this reason, we may refuse to deliver a reward at our discretion. The right to a reward may not be transferred from you as the backer to any other person. By making a pledge you confirm that you and the person the reward is to be delivered to, are aged 18 years or over.

At 12am on the 3rd November 2016 Drunken Berries became the first UK business to
successfully complete a Tesco BackIt campaign 220% funded. A HUGE thank
you to everyone who supported the campaign it’s been a great experience
and we now qualify for 6 months of mentoring from some amazing UK
businesses including Brewdog.com, Propercorn.com, staustellbrewery.co.uk and allaboutfoodltd.com.
As soon as Tesco gives us the green light we will instruct our order fulfilment company to start sending out your rewards and will announce it here so you know when to expect them.
Hi Everyone, Tesco have extended our campaign until 11:59pm Thursday 3rd November so if you had been planning on purchasing a Prosecco mixer reward pack you still have time.
Thanks to everyone who has supported the campaign through shares (1000+) and pledges (208% Funded) we are looking forward to finally sending out your rewards - watch this space.
Yesterday we did our first ever in-store tasting at Tesco Cambridge Newmarket Superstore. We managed to give away 150 Prosecco mixer tasters and got some amazing feed back in the process, thanks to everyone who stopped and sampled we had a great day.
Hi Everyone, Sorry we have not updated our campaign for a while, to make up for it we thought you might be interested to see your rewards being made, so here's a short video showing you a sneek peak behind the scenes at our Factory.

Thanks again for your support
At 14:15pm today our 50th backer pushed us over our Crowd funding target and we have now moved in to over funding mode with 37 days still to run.
A Big Thank you to everyone who has pledged or shared our reward crowdfunding campaign, we could not have done it with out you, but it's not over yet.
Q: What happens now?
A: Tesco Backit allows unlimited over funding and as production and shipping of our rewards is outsourced to 3rd parties we are able to continue taking pledges in return for reward packs until the official finish date of 31st October 2016.
Q: What will you do with any extra money raised?
A: The extra money raised will be used for Trade Shows, Food Festivals, new product development and marketing so you can continue to pledge knowing that we will put all funds received to good use.
We cant wait to see where we will finish
