The number of businesses that were born during the pandemic have become truly endless. People had to turn to unique and creative solutions for a steady stream of income. One such service that was created in the midst of uncertainty was Bar From Afar, based in Ottawa. What simply started as a “happy hour” at home, has now turned into a cocktail kit delivery service. And the best part? They’re making their way to Toronto!
Each of their kits contains all that you need to craft your own, special cocktails right at home. This includes the alcohol, juices, seasonings and even mason jars that are used as cocktail shakers. You can choose from a variety of their options such as gin, rum, vodka and more.
The long term plans for Bar from Afar include expanding their services in the GTA. In the meantime, Torontonians can get a taste with their limited dates for both delivery and pick-up. Each of the deliveries are set to go out on Fridays and Saturdays. The following is their schedule for April and May:
- April 9th-10th
- April30th-May 1st
- May 7th-8th
