.here's the deal
Seedlip is a totally unique product: the first non-alcoholic spirit of its kind.

How do we grow Seedlip in the US market?

the real deal

We discovered a paradox: in today's world where convenience reigns, some people still crave complexity.

These same people also like competition and appreciate exclusivity, especially when they are offered opportunities to be seen as "insiders" or "members" to exclusive clubs, communities or societies.

seal the deal

We created the Seedlip Society, a semi-secret, ultra-exclusive society available by invitation only,

which will help its members master the craft of creating the perfect cocktail.

influencer ads

Style Influencers, such as Brittany Xavier (1.4 million followers, who built a community around her passion for lifestyle and luxury goods),

share envelopes containing invitations to a mysterious society on social media.

shelf tags

Shelf tags indicating "Seedlip Society Suggests" will be placed alongside obscure ingredients at Williams Sonoma, our partnered retailer.

Williams Sonoma is the perfect partnered retailer because they offer luxury kitchen and home goods and foods that cannot be found elsewhere,

creating exclusivity within their own brand.

displays

Since this is a secret society, everyone cannot automatically join the society.

Customers who stand at custom displays for more than 60 seconds to display a vested interest

will receive a coupon in the ultimately secret way: by Airdrop.

starter kits

Starter kits contain a bottle of Seedlip as well as tools such as a jigger and shaker, and a special ingredient, such as a bottle of Verjus.
Most importantly, the kits contain a unique QR code to access the Seedlip Society platform,

that functions as a password to gain access to the app.

the seedlip society platform

Everyone can download the Seedlip Society platform, but not everyone can become a member.

Only those lucky enough to have a unique access code can actually enter the platform.
