Zest Mixology has announced it has secured a new lucrative contract supplying premium pop-up cocktail bars, to one of the world’s biggest catering companies, Levy Leisure.
Levy Leisure (owned by Compass Group), which supplies catering at visitor and heritage attractions across the UK, has appointed Leeds-based Zest to supply pop-up cocktail bars, first class cocktail mixologists, and bespoke cocktail services over 30 of its leisure ventures across the UK.
The contract with Levy Leisure lasts for three years and will see the multi-award-winning company, Zest provide cocktail services at events such as Glyndebourne, the world-famous opera festival, and visitor attractions including a string of famous museums.
Zest founder and CEO, Murdo MacLeod, said: “We are delighted to build our relationship with Levy Leisure from 18 months to a point that we have now entered a powerful partnership and formalised the way we work together.
“We are a passionate team of cocktail professionals that Levy Leisure will utilise as an extension of their team on live event days. The fit for our business is right, the cultural fit with Levy Leisure is strong.”
Zest Mixology was set up by MacLeod in 2011. Zest initially focused on providing an in-home cocktail service for “Come Dine With Me” style dinner parties.
After delivering almost 300 home parties in their first year of operation, Zest soon moved into the corporate sector securing contracts for Lloyds TSB and Yorkshire Bank.
The business also diversified into the music festival sector suppling VIP bars. To date, Zest has delivered over 4,000 events to over one million even guests.
