Words by: Ian Cameron and Tara Garnell Would Carrie Bradshaw approve? The Cosmopolitan is one of the defining modern classic cocktails that gained popularity from the late 1980s and sky-rocketed when Madonna was seen drinking one at the Rainbow Room in New York, and after it became arguably the defining turn-of-the-century cocktail in Sex and the City. But do these pre-packaged versions bear any resemblance to the combination of vodka (potentially flavoured citrus vodka), triple sec, cranberry juice and lime juice (... with flamed orange zest, of course) or are they lurid pink, cloying imitations? READY TO DRINK COSMOPOLITAN BY THE AUTHENTIC COCKTAIL COMPANY

TAILS MINI COSMOPOLITAN - CLASS FAVOURITE

5% alc./vol. Producer: The Authentic Cocktail Company, Bury.

15% alc./vol. Producer: Tails Ltd, Birmingham.

"A blend of cranberry juice, lime juice, orange liqueur and premium vodka", says the label of this 250ml individual serve can which is "best served chilled". Well, duh.

This 150ml individual serve is packaged with a nod to the design of a three-piece shaker and promises a sophisticated cocktail of berry & citrus fruits, made with Italian Tripple Sec and premium French vodka". Chill, shake & Pour, say the instructions, recommending a Martini glass and a garnish of orange peel.

Appearance: Clear, candy pink. Aroma: Bubblegum, apple and blackcurrant cordial, akin to a famous three-lettered blue RTD Taste: Dilute, acidic palate with confected blackcurrant notes emerging. Aftertaste: Fades with dilute fruit squash and citric acid dryness. diffordsguide rating: 1.5/5

Appearance: Clear, peach. Aroma: Concentrated squash, pasteurised lemon, citric acid/lime oil. Taste: Zesty, fresh and clean palate with punchy, peppery alcohol kick, surprisingly well-balanced. Aftertaste: Nice dry finish, the flavour fades with lingering orange zest, like Dale DeGroff just flamed it himself: frankly better than lots of Cosmos we've tried in bars. diffordsguide rating: 4/5

M&S COSMO

COPPA COSMOPOLITAN

10% alc./vol. Producer: Marks & Spencer, Chester.

10% alc./vol. Producer: Toorank Distilleries, The Netherlands.

Over 2½ measures of vodka are in this individual serve, says Marks & Sparks. And you can tell. Made in Belgium.

This 700ml shaker-shaped bottle - with practically the same font as Cosmopolitan magazine, we note - contains six serves which it recommends pouring over crushed ice and serving with a slice of orange.

Appearance: Clear, sparkling , pale candy pink Aroma: Pungent cranberry juice, lime oil/citric acid nose. Taste: Synthetic candied palate with lime oil/citric acid, concentrated cordial, aggressive alcohol bite. Aftertaste: Fades with citric acid dryness. The fact it is sparkling means it is not a Cosmopolitan in any conventional sense. diffordsguide rating: 2/5

Appearance: Clear, cough syrup pink. Aroma: Melted fruit ice lolly, citric acid to the fore. Taste: Like a fizzy strawberry drink gone flat, aggressive citric acid and lacking alcohol bite/overly dilute (when following serving instructions). Aftertaste: Cloying saccharine finish with lingering citric acid. diffordsguide rating: 2/5

A great gift for cocktail lovers, you can find the full range in the Bristol Harvey Nichols store. Bringing you the best of Bristol Bites – the definitive guide to food and drink I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch party for local pre-mixed cocktail brand Tails Cocktails. This, however, was a launch with a difference – the Tails brand began back in 2008, but the head office has only recently moved from Birmingham to Bristol’s Colston Street. Sales of the “authentic, full strength, bar quality cocktails” began two years ago when the brand made its debut in Selfridges, and since then has expanded to include Harvey Nichols, Heals and a range of bars amongst its stockists.

The business’ owner, Nick Wall, spoke on the night about his fondness for Bristol, having spent time in the city as a student at Bristol University. The brand’s presence in Bristol is increasing rapidly (London and Bristol are their prime markets, says Nick) with the Colston Hall, Racks, Luna and, of course, Harvey Nichols in Cabot Circus all stocking the range. Tails is a far classier cocktail brand than the premixed options you normally see on the supermarket shelves. Using premium spirits and liqueurs, natural ingredients and no preservatives, they’re also stronger than most mass market offerings at 14-16% ABV – and the differentiation doesn’t stop there. I absolutely love the packaging of these cocktails. While other brands use bottles or pouches as a vehicle for their drinks, Tails have opted to sell their range (both the original 500ml size plus the 150ml miniatures) in recyclable plastic cocktail shakers. To serve, simply chill, add ice cubes if you like, shake, and serve. But what about the drinks themselves? I tried two varieties on the night, both of which I’d have been more than happy with if I’d bought them in a bar. The Cosmopolitan, a classic blend of triple sec, vodka, citrus and berries, was served with an orange zest garnish and certainly packed a punch! I loved the fairly strong citrus flavours, too. The Mai Tai was probably my favourite of the two, however: light and dark Caribbean rum, pineapple, almond and lime, served with a fresh mint garnish on the night: refreshing and very moreish. The Cosmopolitan by Tails Cocktails The Elderflower Collins and an Espresso Martini complete the range – I’ve not yet tried either, but bought a gift box containing one of each of the four miniatures on the night to try at a later date. A great gift for cocktail lovers, you can find the full range in the Bristol Harvey Nichols store, priced at £13 for a 500ml shaker or £4.50 for a 150ml miniature. The gift boxes are also now available, priced at £22. You can see the full range on the Harvey Nichols website by clicking here, and for more information about Tails, visit their website by clicking this link.

'Authentic cocktails, anytime, anywhere' – it sounds like something that dreams are made of! Yet, this is the tag-line underpinning Tails: a company which has tapped into the illustrious market of on-the-go refreshment; though with a decidedly sophisticated edge. Yes, rather like you might enjoy a flask of tea on a frosty fishing trip, Tails allows you to 'shake your own' cocktail wherever you are – each of the four available concoctions served from its own recyclable shaker, (because supermarket-ready G&Ts and canned cocktails seem soooo dated nowadays don't you think?) Subsequently, upon being invited to discover 'Tails' at its official Bristol launch party, I couldn't help but question what would set this particular product aside from its aforementioned counterparts and also, whether the cocktails themselves would live up to the appeal of their packaging. Advertised as: Premium; whereby cocktails are pungently (at 14-16% by volume) blended from good quality spirits and liqueurs from around the globe, natural; given that each cocktail is free from artificial colours and flavours and bespoke; due to the innovative design of the packaging, Tails is a refreshing take on the culture of the take-away tipple – here, offering an assortment of classic cocktails that can be enjoyed 'on-the-go', within the comfort of one's home or out on the town; minus the typical queuing that seems to go hand-in-hand with hardcore cocktail creation! As the brainchild of father and son team Peter and Nick Wall, Tails has been launched in a number of top-end outlets including the likes of Selfridge’s, John Lewis and Harvey Nichols; the 500ml shaker priced from £12.50 and the 150ml 'mini' shaker at £4.50. For us Bristolians, it's also worth being aware that Tails will be stocked in a handful of the city's watering holes; namely Racks Bar and Kitchen, Luna, Byzantium and the Colston Hall. Without further ado, let me tell you a little about Tails' range which, in true Sex and the City fashion, was sampled (rather shamelessly) in its entirety amongst our female foursome...for the sake of the review of course! Elderflower Collins - They said: An invigorating cocktail of apple and lemon juice, made with elderflower liqueur and London Dry Gin We thought..That this was a lovely addition to the line-up; channelling the essence of alfresco Summer-time drinking with its crisp, refreshing notes – the gin element adding the necessary punch and complementing the zing of the apple and the tart of lemon juice to perfection. To sum up...EW gave the Elderflower Collins a rating of 8/10 and in three words described it as an, 'English Country Garden'. Espresso Martini They said: An indulgent cocktail of rich coffee, vanilla and chocolate, made with coffee liqueur and Premium French vodka We thought...That this was a deliciously decadent concoction with bitter-sweet appeal and a rich, creamy finish; a suitable digestif or wicked pick-me-up given its unmistakable caffeine content - the latter evidenced with the positive correlation between the number of espresso martinis consumed and the extent of one's sleepless night! That said, this was a firm favourite and without doubt, my cocktail of choice from the collection overall. To sum up...BR gave the Espresso Martini a rating of 9/10 and in three words commented that it had a 'smooth, balanced flavour'. Mai Tai - They said: An exotic cocktail of pineapple, almond and lime made with a blend of light and dark Caribbean rums. We thought...that this was lethally drinkable! A sweet yet fresh-tasting cocktail reminiscent of sunny days and holidays abroad! The ying-yang rum content was arguably somewhat undetectable but facilitated an enjoyable drinking experience nevertheless. To sum up...LC gave the Mai Tai a rating of 7/10 and in three words described it as 'refreshing', 'zingy' but 'tame'. Cosmopolitan - They said: A sophisticated cocktail of citrus and berry fruits, made with Italian Triple Sec and premium French vodka We thought...That this was an ample Cosmo and yet unanimously our least favourite given that it sported a decidedly weak disposition; proving somewhat pale in colour and lacking the kick that the other four concoctions had in abundance. To sum up...SE gave the Cosmopolitan a rating of 6/10 and in three words described it as, 'a little disappointing'.

To note that each beverage was finished with an appropriate garnish which obviously, you’d have to provide yourself...

A 'Mock Tai' was also available (though I'm told that this is not on the market at present) which, made with passionfruit and a touch of sparkle, was really rather well-received; the designated driver of our party enjoying that the non-alcoholic option was served with as much gusto as its boozier equivalents. As for the venue, Byzantuim never fails to deliver in terms of its intriguing ambiance, eye-catching Moroccan-themed décor and colourful yet comfortable seating – I should also mention the canapés (which did become rather essential given the number of cocktails consumed on a 'school night' and in rather quick succession! which were beautifully presented, tasty and varied – the shredded duck and horseradish tartlet proving particularly popular amongst our party. In conclusion, there are a number of plus points to this progressive concept of 'shake and serve' – we considered it a welcome change to be promptly served at the bar rather than to wait it out whilst one's beverage is painstakingly concocted from scratch. However, you may well argue that the theatre of mixology will become redundant; falling behind in the ever-present tussle between art and convenience. On a similar front, there are a number of cocktails which simply could not be created in this way – the ever-popular Mojito for instance which, despite its undeniable 'best-seller' status, would lose its appeal if you were to take away the altogether essential effects of fresh lime and crushed mint. Nevertheless, there are many avenues which could be explored instead – perhaps deviating from the classics and exploring alternative themes and eras; reflecting perhaps the originality of the packaging with a contemporary content. Predominantly though, the brief has been met as Tails' cocktails have been well-executed, thoughtfully blended and really do fare rather well as *the* upmarket takeaway-tipple (plus, albeit more expensive, far classier than gin in a tin!) And so, suitable for quality quaffing on-the-go, as an after-dinner treat or as a quirky Christmas gift (well, 'tis the season after all), there really is no reason not to experience Tails for yourself!

Let’s face it, as delicious as cocktails are, sometimes we all wish we could skip the careful measuring of the ingredients and move straight onto the fun bit, the drinking! The ready-to-drink market has been booming for exactly this reason for many years but usually these products require little more than opening and pouring into the glass. Convenient, but it hardly has the fun or theatre that goes with making a cocktail from scratch. The new range of cocktails from Tails addresses both these issues, but would they taste any good? As fun as it is, the shaking of a cocktail is nothing more than a means to achieving dilution and chilling. However, there is no denying that it’s also the fun part of mixing, and a significant part of the reason that many people want to try making their own cocktails at home. This fact is not missed by the creators of Tails Cocktails, who have come up with the rather ingenious packaging that also doubles as a shaker. Available in Cosmpolitan, Mai Tai and Espresso Martini ‘flavours’, the Tails cocktails are clearly looking to appeal to the aspiring home-bartender who wants both convenience and a fun way to serve up their drinks. I checked out the Espresso Martini version and would be deceiving you if I did not admit to being a little apprehensive. Call me prejudiced, but I have this theory that pre-mix cocktails are never a superior option to what one might be able to fix up at home. However, I must learn that not everyone is as obsessive about their booze collection as I, and perhaps their idea of fun is not spending hours on end mixing up cocktails in the kitchen when they have guests over! So with this in mind I took my sample round to some non-cocktail-geeky friends to see what they made of it. The cocktail comes in a 500ml ‘shaker’ which struck me as being a little large. Of course I appreciate the idea is to share amongst several people, but by the time you have put 500ml into a container no bigger than your cocktail shaker, there is very little room for ice. The instructions suggest adding 4-5 ice cubes before shaking, and indeed that is the maximum you will fit in before things start to overflow. Herein lies a problem; 4-5 ice cubes in 500ml of room temperature liquid does not result in a chilled drink! Fortunately someone had the foresight to put the shaker in the fridge for a few hours and so things were nice and cool anyway. Even so, the addition of ice, followed by the necessary shaking, utterly pointless, if a bit of fun. My non-cocktail friends rather enjoyed the process, being totally ignorant of how regular cocktails are made, but for anyone with more than a waft of knowledge, it all feels a little daft. I like to think that the proof is in the pudding and so after the entertainment of the shaking it was on to the tasting. I’m not ashamed to say I was pleasantly surprised! This is a more than respectable drink and, whilst its not up to the very best that a freshly made Espresso Martini can offer, it is more than palatable; indeed I would go so far as to say I rather liked it. There is a decent hit of coffee with not-too-much sweetness and just the right amount of bite from the alcohol. With hints of chocolate it has a bit of complexity too, and we all found it slipping down rather easily. All in all I find myself thinking fond things of this beverage. Sure, a freshly made espresso martini from a decent bar is a better testing drink, and the whole ice and shaking thing is a bit of a gimmick, but it’s also fun and tasty enough for my friends to conclude that they might like to join me on my next cocktail outing; and that has to be a good thing. Would I Buy It?: Perhaps not for an average night in, but you could do a lot worse for something to take to a party. This is a respectable RTD cocktail that offers a bit of fun but most importantly is tasty too. The Tails Cocktail range is available from Ocado, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Heal’s, and theonlineofflicence.com

The Tails range of award winning premium cocktails, developed by Nick Wall, have enjoyed great success with their Mini single serve offer since their launch in the Spring of this year. Consumers who have become devotees of these classic contemporary cocktails, which include; Elderflower Collins, Cosmopolitan, Espresso Martini and Mai Tai, now have the chance to buy their favourite cocktails in a new four-bottle Gift Pack. The gift packs have listings in John Lewis and Harvey Nichols and in the run up to Christmas both the London and Birmingham BBC Good Food Shows will have stocks available to purchase. Nick Wall commented, " When we launched the 150ml Mini Shakers in Graham Packaging bespoke bottles, we focused sales initially on individual units. However, we are continually updating and improving our offer, and knowing our consumers are articulate aficionados of cocktails, wishing to spread the word and taste of Tails to friends, we listened to their feedback and created the new gift pack. Having achieved these great listings the plan is to keep them in store going through the traditional Christmas and New Year festivities and into next year. Our consumer feedback demonstrates that the 150ml bottle is such a good way to try out the range with the gift box allowing them to try all four products. We have been so pleased with the response, clearly our consumers love the products and the handy single serve size." Simone Gill Account Manager at Graham Packaging Plastics said, "It has been such a great project working with Nick and his team, their attention to detail in the first place with their wonderful range of Tails Minis Cocktails together with the whole design of the Tails Minis packaging, has been so rewarding. Nick and his team really deserve the success of their brand launch." Simone continued; "The Tails Minis launch is a great example of how innovative PET design can be instrumental in the success of a product launch, for the Tails Mini being unbreakable, tactile and fun, it ticks all the boxes for success.”

Leading Midlands based marketing and events consultancy, Big Cat Group has seen some sophistication added to the menu this month as it welcomes cocktail connoisseurs, Tails Cocktails to the pride. Following a competitive pitch, Big Cat have been brought on board to develop and deliver the PR, Social and Experiential Marketing strategy for Tails which is currently stocked in high-end retails such as Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. Big Cat will be responsible for building the brand reputation of Tails amongst potential investors and consumers through a carefully planned PR and Social Media plan. Tails Cocktails was founded in 2007 by entrepreneur Nick Wall who had a Eureka moment whilst in the bath. Nick’s passion for cocktails led to the establishment of the company after he realised there was no easy way to enjoy a good cocktail away from inner city bars and clubs. Nick Wall, CEO of Tails Cocktails said: “2012 is an important year for Tails as there are a number of exciting developments on the horizon. With the increase in popularity of cocktails, we felt it was time to take them directly to the consumer, so what better place than in their homes. “Not everyone has a drinks cabinet at home, and making authentic cocktails can be an investment in itself. We want to make cocktails easily accessible to people across a range of demographics, not just to those who are on a guest list at a VIP club or party. “Big Cat will be assisting us in building the Tails brand whilst offering support in a number of key areas within the business.” Anthony Tattum, Managing Director of Big Cat said: “Tails Cocktails is one of those brands which agencies dream of working with. It’s a brand with so much potential and we feel privileged to have been chosen to offer support with their Marketing, PR and Social Media. “The drinks industry has seen a boom in sales for cocktails over recent years and shows no sign of slowing down over the coming months. The possibilities are endless and we’re really looking forward to getting our teeth stuck into the project”. Posted by: Hayley Lingard on Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

A range of drink-at-home cocktails, invented in Birmingham, require you to shake, not stir. Richard McComb reports. During his work in real estate investment, Nick Wall travelled the world on business and often found himself holed up in hotel cocktail bars. He acquired a connoisseur’s taste for a classic martini and a well-mixed mojito but was baffled why such drinks weren’t available, ready to mix, for cocktail devotees in their homes. So Nick decided to do just that, setting up his own business, based in Birmingham, producing a range of high-end drinks that he says wouldn’t be out of place in a swanky city bar. The idea chimed perfectly with popular culture fashion trends, riding on the back of cocktail consumption in films such as Sex and the City and cool television dramas such as Mad Men, where the prevalence of Old Fashioneds and Manhattans is matched only by the regularity of smoking. Nick, who grew up in Edgbaston, set up Tails as a producer of DIY cocktails, authentically packaged in their very own shakers. The drinks are ideal for home entertaining, from house parties to intimate dinners for two. With Valentine’s Day almost upon us, Tails should add a shake of glamour to a romantic soiree. “I am very much a cocktail fan,” says Nick, who, as luck would have it, celebrates his (32nd) birthday on Valentine’s Day. “At the time I conceived the idea I was drinking in cocktail bars. One day I was sitting in the bath and I said to myself, ‘Can I drink the same quality of cocktails at home without paying the same price that good cocktails demand?’ The answer was ‘no.’ “I wanted to be able to drink good cocktails at home but there weren’t any available.” Nick also latched on to the trend for home drinking, sparked by the recession. People are now more inclined to have a snifter before heading out for dinner, saving on drinks bills. Combined with the public’s renewed taste for cocktails and the higher profile given to food and drink in general, thanks to TV cookery shows, Nick sniffed a market opportunity.

When Nick Wall decided to ditch his well-paid career as a property consultant and start a business making cocktails, his first call was to arrange a meeting at his local Business Link. The adviser at Business Link West Midlands not only put Wall in touch with a marketing consultant with experience of the drinks industry and an expert from the Manufacturing Advisory Service, he also arranged a £10,000 grant to fund 75% of the consultant’s fee for a year. “For me, Business Link was a great starting point,” said Wall, 32. “They supported me and set me in the right direction to research and develop my idea.” Tails, which sells pre-mixed cocktails packaged in shakers, was launched last September and is set to turn over £150,000 this year. The Birmingham company supplies Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Ocado.

Countdown to Christmas – Tails’ Ready Mixed Fuss Free Cocktails December 6, 2010 By Helen As the media is constantly reminding us, Christmas is coming, the countdown of the number of shopping days left started several months ago (doubtless in a bid to get people to part with their money before the pre-Christmas sales start). Amid the encouragement to madly shop there are the never ending parties, all manner of food and lifestyle magazines promising the methods to obtain a perfect Christmas. It is not surprising that more people do not crack under the strain of this constant search for perfection. A good few weeks ago I received a very mysterious invitation to a house party with “buff butlers & french maids” to celebrate the launch of Tails’ Cocktails. Intrigued, I accepted, and a very fun night was had. There is something really special about a cocktail served in a martini glass, I adore the elegance and ritual of it, and it brings out my inner hankering to be Audrey Hepburn. Tails is a clever idea for bar quality cocktails ready to serve in your home. Premixed and packaged in a cocktail shaker, all you have to do add ice, pour and serve. Completely (dare I say it?) “fuss free”, no need for a drinks cupboard full of half full bottles of left over ingredients. Tails are available in 3 flavours all at 18% ABV. Espresso Martini – complete with a frothy top layer, premium vodka, coffee and a hit of chocolate. Perfect for after dinner. Mai Tai consisting of rum, almond, pineapple & lime is delicious, and to complete the range there is a classic Cosmopolitan. I tasted all three of them, several times, and all are very good, with Mai Tai being my favourite. A testament to the quality of the vodka is that my head hurt far less that I deserved the morning after the launch. Each shaker serves 4 and costs £11.99, a fraction of the price of the same drinks in a bar. The shaker is recyclable too. Tails Cocktails are available from Selfridges & On Line Off Licence, they also tweet so do let them know your favourite cocktail. Perfect for a night in, before a dinner party or for a present. I may need to keep one in the cupboard for a cocktail emergency! Many thanks to Tails for the invitation to the launch. TA I L S | P R E S S P O RT F O L I O

Blackjack promotes 'Tails' cocktails in seasonal activity at Selfridges Fri 3rd Dec 2010 Blackjack Promotions has been tasked to drive sales at nationwide Selfridges stores for ready-made cocktails brand ‘Tails’ as part of their Christmas season campaign push. The range of ready-made cocktails allows the consumer to experience the ritual of shaking ingredients with ice. Tails cocktails come in a variety of flavours including Cosmopolitan, Mai Tai and Espresso Martini and are packaged in real (recyclable) shakers. The unique selling point of Tails is that they are designed to make the consumer become the mixologist and are very straightforward to use: add ice, shake and pour the “perfect cocktail”. Blackjack staff are promoting the cocktails in the food and beverage section of Selfridges stores in the Birmingham Bullring, Manchester Exchange and Manchester Trafford Centre. Brand ambassadors were briefed to target Christmas shoppers, particularly a female ABC1 audience, during late night and Saturday shopping leading up to Christmas. Blackjack Promotions is providing experienced brand ambassadors to shake the cocktails and pour over ice into sampling glasses and to distribute amongst the target audience. The activity will take place throughout the Christmas shopping period.

Tails is the brainchild of young entrepreneur Nick Wall, who has taken the germ of an idea in 2007 and developed it into a premium brand that is set to be launched in one of Britain’s leading retailers today. The product, a sophisticated range of cocktails packaged in real shakers, will be sold exclusively for five weeks across Selfridges’ four stores in Birmingham, Manchester and London before being rolled out to other high-end retailers. Backed by support from the Manufacturing Advisory Service–West Midlands (MAS-WM)’s New Product Development Programme and Business Link, the company expects first year activity to generate sales in excess of £600,000 with plans already in place to add new flavours to the existing three-strong range, look at promotional gift ideas and explore diversification. Nick picked up the story: “I’ve always been passionate about cocktails, but was getting increasingly frustrated at the poor and weak tasting products available to buy for home consumption. “Following a bit of anecdotal research it became clear that there was a gap in the market to introduce a premium experience and brand that actually replicated bar cocktails.” He continued: “That was back in 2007 and the following three years have been spent honing the idea, developing a product that combines innovative packaging, convenience and a balance of premium spirits and ingredients to deliver the taste of bar quality cocktails in your home.”

Sandy Johal (MAS-WM), Nick Wall (Tails) and Roy Pully (MAS-WM)

Initially, the Tails range features three iconic flavours; a sophisticated Cosmopolitan, an exotic Mai Tai and an indulgent Espresso Martini. All three cocktails have an 18% ABV providing accurate bar strength and are packaged in real ‘shakers’ that have been cleverly designed so that each contains four 125ml measures and allows you to add ice, shake and pour perfect cocktails. Each shaker is also recyclable.

This has been complemented with ongoing assistance from Business Link and funding from the Advantage West Midlands-backed Proof of Concept Fund and Innovation Networks.

MAS-WM introduced Coventry-based Smallfry Design to Nick, who eventually chose them to undertake the design and development of the product, aimed primarily at 25-45 year-olds who love cocktails. Tails are ideal for numerous occasions, including drinks before going out, a girls’ night in, a BBQ, parties or simply as a gift.

“The external support we have received has been outstanding and really helped turn the idea into reality. Tails would simply not be where it is now without it,” continued Nick, who used to be involved in international real estate investment. “The NPD Panel, which has overseen the development process, has been a great sounding board at regular key stages, a critical aspect of the product development and a great source of specialist advice through the consultants they brought in.”

Nick continued: “All of the market research we completed suggested that Tails are going to be extremely popular and what really topped it off was a special blind tasting session we completed against a cocktail bar. We won.

Roy Pulley, Head of the Innovation Team at MAS-WM, commented: “This is a great West Midlands success story and highlights that the region’s outstanding enterprise, innovation capability and determination, brought together in a structured product development process, really can deliver new products to market.

“Getting Selfridges on board is a major achievement and reflects the premium branding of Tails. As the recent winner of the world’s best department store they are the perfect launch platform and retail partner.”

“What it has also shown quite clearly is how four business support organisations have worked together to support a young entrepreneur with high-growth potential ...advice and specialist guidance at its best.”

Tails has received significant support from the West Midlands business support community with the Manufacturing Advisory Service providing the mentoring and grant funded product development support.

The Tails range, which retail at £11.99, are available at all four Selfridges stores from July 29th. For further information, please visit www.tailscocktails.com
