About Us

Celebrating 21 years
of Butlers Cocktail

When it comes to mixing the perfect cocktail, we are spoilt for choice with Butlers Cocktail Liqueurs. Cocktails are about a personal taste, from the classics to the contemporary, and Butlers has something in its range of flavours for every bartender and home mixologist.
There are 5 key reasons to choose Butlers over competitors:

Delicious range of flavours
Butlers boasts a range of 9 flavours which includes Cherry Kirsch, Espresso, Crème de banana, Peppermint, Strawberry, Ginger, Blue Curacao, Triple Sec, and Van Der Hum.

Optimum formulation for mixing
In conjunction with the launch of the new bottle, one of the world’s top flavour houses created the best taste profile for each Butlers variant, ensuring that Butlers not only tastes great but also mixes exceptionally well. South Africa is a “shooter nation”, so a lot of time and effort went into ensuring the correct colour and viscosity for each flavour thus ensuring a product that looks great and can layer well in a shot glass. 

Affordable Price
Butlers can compete with World-class imported liqueurs at an affordable price, as it has the advantage of being a tasty flavour modifier while containing the extra kick of 24% abv. This is increasingly beneficial with the current exchange rate in South Africa.

Versatile Shot tail and cocktail recipe flavours
South Africans have enjoyed many Butlers cocktails and mixed shooters, including celebrating our national team tries with a Springbokkie.

Award Winning packaging
In 2009 Butlers was given a facelift, making it the brand of choice for mixologists. 
A NEW dazzling shimmer bottle was introduced, designed to reflect like a diamond on back bar display and the skittle shape of the bottle was engineered for flaring. The quality of the Butlers bottle was recognised with A Gold Medal for “Packaging Excellence” and the Gold Pack Trophy for “Best Glass on Show” at the prestigious Gold pack Awards. 

And now to celebrate Butlers coming of age and 21st birthday, we have refreshed the packaging to improve shelf impact and premium perception with a silver label and closure colour. Together with a mixture of contemporary typefaces and improved bright, colourful product photography we were able to create a modern, distinctive label that would enhance the flavour imagery and bring the colourful and delicious cocktail liqueur range to life!

In Celebration of International Bartender day we asked our Butlers Bartender of the month Matthew Cox what he likes best about bartending.

I love the fast-paced environment, the creative freedom and the fact that each day is exciting and different from the last. For me, one of the best feelings is the reaction from a guest enjoying your creation- like a kid at a magic show, I love bringing a sense of wonder, joy and excitement to people of all ages and backgrounds through a cocktail.
