The exact origin of punch remains a mystery. Many scholars believe the libation was first crafted by English merchant sailors in Indonesia in the early 17th century. The desire to create a balanced, fruity, and complex tipple was based on their taste for wine coupled with their plentiful access to locally distilled spirits. With balanced proportions of citrus juice, sugar, water, and spices, the sailors were able to tame the exotic palm, sugar, and cane spirits into “Punch”, a word derived from the Hindi word for “five”. They would carry their creation as they sailed to new lands, helping to make punch one of the world’s most popular drinks for nearly 200 years. Our uniquely designed Punch-on-Tap program honors this original formula by incorporating handmade oleo saccharum (citrus oils and sugar) with blends made with fresh seasonal produce and herbs, natural demerara sugar, spices, and premium spirits.


Each bottle ($20) comes with instructions and spirit suggestions.
“Just add booze and water.”
