Beyond the Medals

While the medals and accolades are a mark of our dedication, it's the story behind each flavour that truly sets us apart.Our founders Joyce and Raissa De Haas, founders of Double Dutch, identified a gap in the mixer market and sought to infuse it with vibrancy and innovation.

Their journey began by challenging the status quo and redefining mixer standards, and today, their passion reflects in every bottle of Double Dutch. Our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility also sets us apart. We are proud to be actively working towards achieving B Corp status.   

Here's to setting the gold standard in the mixer industry and to more exciting developments on the horizon. Cheers to Double Dutch - your undisputed champion in the world of mixers and tonics!
