How we got started
In 2015, Speakeasy Co. humbly began as a cocktail subscription box, a distant concept from what exists today.
Back then, we wanted to introduce subscribers to the most crucial ingredient in a cocktail, the spirits, all while making a fun drink. We naturally gravitated towards craft spirit brands, who educated us on the confines of the post-Prohibition 3-tier system, the existing regulatory climate, and the $250B alcohol industry still running off paper invoices. The alcohol industry was ripe for innovation.
Over the years we transformed Speakeasy into a 3-tier compliant e-commerce platform managing websites, facilitating payments, and creating fulfillment centers, allowing brands to finally own their data, customer relationships, and growth.
