The Bibo Barmaid, a cocktail self-serve machine that allows consumers to create crafted mixed drinks at home, has launched via a Kickstarter campaign.
The Bibo Barmaid was invented by Debra Walker, an entrepreneur and 25-year veteran marketer of Fortune 500 brands. According to Walker, the new countertop appliance features a three-part system that includes the Bibo Barmaid dispenser, Bibo Cocktail Mixer pouches and one shot of alcohol.
“I’ve hosted and attended many parties where the drinks were either too weak or too strong, and too many open alcohol bottles and mixers made it a mess, resulting in wasted leftovers. During a girlfriend get-together, I realized there had to be a better way to make cocktails. New technologies can make life easier and up the fun-factor. That’s what Bibo is all about, ” said Walker.
The Bibo Cocktail Mix pouches include flavors like Cucumber Melon, Tangerine Paloma, Margarita, and Appletini. The Bibo Barmaid is scheduled to be available at various retailers and eventually in hotel chains for in-room cocktail ease. It will be available in six flavors and has a suggested retail price of $229.
