"We decided to try SOFI Spritz cocktail kegs because they saved time spent on cocktail prep on our busiest days whilst still serving up a quality product. The uptake exceeded our expectations - we sold over $120k worth of SOFI Cocktails on Tap and achieved a GP margin of almost 90%. Doesn't hurt that its locally owned and made!"
Dave Champ – GM The Bucket List, Bondi
"Tommy Maclean went on a European holiday and instead of bringing us back a lousy T-shirt, he’s gifted a guiding light for the Australian Pre-Mixed industry and female focussed ready-to-drinks.”

Inspired by a trip to Italy, SOFI Spritz was created in Bondi by Tom Maclean and crafted with the expertise of 5th generation Mudgee winemaker, Simon Gilbert. Blending Italian cocktail culture, with Australian wine making expertise and a philosophy to only use quality, natural ingredients and no added sugar, SOFI Spritz is a ready to serve twist on the Aperitivo moment.
A locally sourced blend of premium quality Australian wine, juices, herbal extracts and sparkling water. Lighter than wine, with a crisp and refreshing bitter-sweet taste, SOFI is the perfect accompaniment to laid back afternoons - BBQs, picnics, beer gardens and outdoor events.
Crowdfunded all the way to Shark Tank, the first SOFI Spritz was bottled 5 years ago and launched at Bondi Farmers Market.
Winning the Best Innovation Award at the 2017 Australian Drinks Awards, SOFI is now ranged in Australia’s largest retailers (Dan Murphy’s, BWS, Vintage Cellars and First Choice).
In March this year, SOFI’s White Peach & Ginger cocktail cans launched on Virgin Australia flights. SOFI is a local start-up with global ambitions and the team want you to help take the business to the next level.

It’s a no brainer that SOFI decided to once again turn to crowdfunding to raise capital. However, this time they wanted to give investors more than just the delicious drink.
With the capital the company plans to grow its sales team to maximise ranging and presence in iconic Australian venues, up-weight marketing for awareness and trial and explore new products and global export opportunities. Register your interest to be part of the SOFI journey.
What is equity crowdfunding?
Equity crowdfunding became accessible to all Australian's over the age of 18 in January 2018. It's a new way to invest that enables broad groups of investors (‘the crowd’) to fund early stage companies in return for equity. It helps these companies access the capital they require and gives investors a chance to invest in businesses they are passionate about. Retail investors can invest up to $10,000. Sophisticated investors are unlimited in their investment.
