Jonny McKenzie - JMR & Co Cocktails

We’re in the middle of a craft beer boom, on the cusp of a craft spirits bonanza, and now here comes the next big new thing in the world of alcoholic delights - craft RTDs.

Wellington cocktail legend Jonny McKenzie, best known for his bartending skills in late-night haunts Hawthorn Lounge and CGR Merchants, is set to burst into the national consciousness of the hip and well-heeled with his range of handcrafted cocktails.

The range comes in one-serve bottles and currently includes a martini, old fashioned, manhattan and negroni. McKenzie launched the range in November and has already had incredible support from local businesses wanting to run tastings and order the range.

Next McKenzie is working on a number of new collaborations, as well as getting the range onto shelves in Auckland and Queenstown.

What could possibly be better than sipping a perfectly balanced Wellington-mixed old fashioned on the shores of Lake Wakatipu or clinking martini glasses with a view out over the Hauraki Gulf?
