High Street Hero - Joyce & Raissa de Haas

Raised in the Netherlands, Double Dutch’s twin founders, Joyce and Raissa, have a natural affinity with superlative drinks and excellent blendings. After all, they come from the birthplace of gin! But their love affair turned to frustration. While the world’s choice of spirits has continued to grow, mixers and sodas have remained bland … less of a twin, more of a shadow. Double Dutch is the result of this love affair – uniting great spirits with complementary mixers that enliven and enhance. The mixers are created to pair with spirits on a molecular level, using common flavour compounds to both contrast and harmonise with the natural flavours found in our favourite spirits, liqueurs and fortified wines. Richard Branson supported the Double Dutch vision by giving the twins a Foodpreneur award for the brand, the first of many accolades awarded to the mixers.
