Woodward Extract Co. produces and bottles small-batch flavor extracts in a former Pfizer plant in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn using a cold extraction process and organic, fair trade ingredients. The company is the brainchild of Amy Nazer, who set out to create her own unique flavors after feeling frustrated by the lack of quality extracts in local stores.
WE'RE AT IT AGAIN
Last year's campaign was an amazing experience - it helped us grow as a business and connected us with people all over the country who share our passion for making great drinks at home. Now we want to build on that success and highlight the fantastic work of two other women in our Brooklyn beverage community: Katipai Richardson-Wilson of Dirty Precious in Gowanus and Allison Kave of Butter & Scotch in Crown Heights.
Each Holiday Cocktail Kit will include one ounce bottles of four new seasonal flavors: Allspice, Douglas Fir, Nutmeg, and Rosemary. Printed recipe cards will walk you through creating a cocktail with each extract, and more recipes for each flavor will be included in a backers-only section of our website.
As was the case in our last campaign, all of the drinks will be easy to make at home with standard bar tools and without any hard-to-find ingredients (other than our extracts, of course). We think it's the perfect gift for the cocktail lover on your list, and it's an even better way to treat yourself or spruce up the drinks at your next holiday party (evergreen pun intended).
WHERE YOU COME IN
In early November, we started batches of our new seasonal extracts so they'll be ready when our Kickstarter campaign comes to a close. We're also finalizing recipes for delicious drinks created by our campaign partners, Allison and Katipai.
We want to get our Holiday Cocktail Kit into your hands and under your trees by Christmas, but we can only do that with your help. Woodward Extract Co. is a small business on a tight budget, and custom packaging and design work are expensive. With your support, we can create a fantastic kit you'll love to gift or get, so we hope you'll pledge here before our campaign ends on December 16. Thank you for taking the time to hear our story, and we hope you'll become a part of our project!
FINALLY, WE'RE SO GRATEFUL FOR...
Heather-Mariah Dixon, our new designer and creative lead - without her amazing work, nothing we're doing now would be possible; Thi Lam, videographer extraordinaire; and our campaign partners Allison Kave and Katipai Richardson-Wilson, whose work and successes inspire us and who've been so generous with their time and ideas.
Risks and challenges
Our timeline may seem tight, but we've handled large projects on shorter notice and we know we can make this work and ship out all rewards in time for Christmas delivery. We did it last year, after all! Feel free to reach out with any questions or feedback - we're here to address any concerns you may have.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
