When Patrick Halbert and his partners at a small restaurant group in Dallas got a suggestion to bottle their cocktails for airlines, they took a risk and left the restaurant industry behind to create premium ready-to-drink brand On The Rocks. Fast forward a couple years later and they were selling thousands of Mai Tais to Hawaiian Airlines.
In this episode of the Park Street Insider Podcast, Halbert sits down to share how the On The Rocks team overcame obstacles and created opportunities on the way to selling their brand to Beam Suntory after just five years on the market. The conversation covers the rise of On The Rocks in the on-premise and the initial struggle to get a foot in the door off-premise, as well as how everything changed when they were introduced to Beam Suntory.
