Camp Craft Cocktails, a Floridian brand spearheaded by Suzanah Raffield and Rhonda Stringfellow, is an innovative brand that creates artisanal cocktail kits designed to elevate the home bartending experience. The Noughty team caught up with them to find out how their delightful and memorable drinks experiences have garnered a loyal following of cocktail enthusiasts.
Certainly, the company uses only the highest-quality, all-natural ingredients, sourced locally and organically when possible, to ensure a true craft cocktail experience and this has built them a fast-growing fanbase.
Offering a wide range of cocktail kits, from classic to inventive flavours, Camp Craft Cocktails are designed for both experienced mixologists and beginners.
In addition to their commitment to quality and convenience, Camp Craft Cocktails promotes sustainability with their eco-friendly packaging.
They have a large selection of cocktails to help you impress your guests, many of which work perfectly with Noughty.
We are delighted to bring together our Noughty Rouge and their sangria kit to result in the perfect quick and simple all day cocktail!
To begin with, we’re showcasing the sangria. It’s such a great easy cocktail you can pop in the fridge and dazzle your friends with!
We love the Camp ethos. What was it that first inspired you both to create the brand?
We both had great experiences working on separate camp staffs when we were in college and grad school. We knew the concept would center our vision to build community around the art of serving and sharing drinks.
Our brands are both centred around inclusivity and building a sense of community. How important is that to you?
We moved from non-profit work to build a business so our family structure could be celebrated rather than excluded. We didn't know if it would work, but we had to throw everything at this idea to show up for ourselves and we've been grateful for the opportunity to stand up for others on this journey.
What are your go to zero proof combinations this holiday season?
I'm going to stand up for the frazzled host who needs something beautiful and easy!

If there was one Camp Craft Cocktail product you think everyone should try, which one would you pick and why?
We’ve recently created cocktail bundles that tell a story while sharing recipes, hosting tips, and more. These bundles make delightful gifts for any home bartender and each features one of our favorite cocktail infusion kits.
Our most recent cocktail bundle features our classic bestselling kit, Old Fashioned. They are a great value and a lot of fun for home bartenders to get inspired with.
What's next for Camp Craft Cocktails?
We are doing final tests for our new 2024 flavors and activating some dreaming projects that we've been talking about for a while.
