Double Dutch Drinks – Double the Energy, Double the Impact… and Double the Fun!

Double Dutch Drinks is the passion project of twin sisters Raissa and Joyce, who found themselves inspired to start a drinks business while studying for their Entrepreneurship Masters degrees.

Having grown up in the Netherlands, the birthplace of gin, they saw that mixers too often lack the vibrancy of the spirits they’re paired with. Excited to bring some change, they experimented with lively and daring pairings, soon developing two boldly flavoured tonic waters that would later become their signatures - Cucumber & Watermelon, and Pomegranate & Basil. The tonics quickly became popular at parties, and Double Dutch Drinks took off in earnest right after graduation, the name coming from the sisters’ own background and partnership, and their belief that expectations can, and should, be doubled.

When creating their concoctions, Raissa and Joyce sought out top quality ingredients, making sure their recipes were low in sugar, free from additives and preservatives, and most importantly, fun! They continued to find surprising and characterful flavour combinations, opening up all kinds of possibilities to shake up the unexpected. Their range now consists of a sparkling array of award-winning flavours, adored by mixologists all over the world.

While they wanted to create some drinks that would be the life and soul of the party, doing business the right way was just as important as having fun. Double Dutch Drinks is proudly carbon neutral with impressive sustainability credentials, the sisters have started their own Female Bartending Scholarship, and they’re chasing their dream of becoming a B Corp.
