On Premise - Six Barrel Squad

You can find our drinks in hundreds of the best bars and cafes across New Zealand and Australia. This gang is ever-growing and too long to list, so rather each month we celebrate and feature one of our top-notch 'Six Barrel Squad' members right here.

These are a few of the best places to go across the country to try Six Barrel Soda Co. in action - so make sure you pay them a visit.

Got an idea for our next Six Barrel Squad star, or doing something cool with your Six Barrel drinks? Get in touch for our next Six Barrel Squad feature!

Mesita Wine Bar - 14C Ohio St, Martinborough

Mesita Winebar is tucked away in a quiet little corner of Martinborough, in the Wairarapa. Mesita (Spanish for “small table”) serves local and international drinks accompanied by a Latin American inspired menu.

This cool little spot opened around a year ago, and originally chose Six Barrel Soda Co. for their menu because they didn't click with other options available, and of course, as Alice from Mesita says: “also because it tastes amazing, comes in glass bottles and is made locally!”.

Their most popular choice? Six Barrel Soda Co. Ginger Ale, which pairs prefectly with tequila, like in their super popular Mexican Mule cocktail, along with Fresh Lime and El Espolon Tequila.

Alice tells us that she finds: “the basic sodas (Cola, Lemonade & Ginger Ale) are perfectly balanced and most importantly not too sweet to ruin a cocktail or mixed drink and all hold up deliciously on their own as non-alcoholic options.”

Next time you're in the 'hood, make sure you pay them a visit (and grab some Fried Chicken while you're there!). Check Mesita out online (www.mesita.net) or on Instagram (@mesita.winebar).

The Still Room - 5 Oroua St, Eastbourne

The Still Room Eastbourne is a boutique suburban gastro-bar, showcasing favourite local products and their stories.

These guys have just this month launched their Summer Cocktail Menu, with nine specially crafted drinks featuring Six Barrel Soda Co. syrups, Seedlip, Lighthouse Gin and Reid & Reid Gin. Some favourites on the list include the Hibiscus Margarita and Dandelion Old Fashioned.

Owners Rowan & Anthony tell us: “We love Six Barrel Soda syrups because they taste great and are of great quality but also because we love that they are a Wellington brand and the flavours are complex, fun & innovative.”.

We're pretty excited to try their new Summer Cocktail Menu, and the Still Room gang are loving using Six Barrel syrups in the mix: “Using Six Barrel Syrups we have been able to create a variety of cocktails that are fresh and delicious and are approachable to both our weekend visitors and our locals.”.

We can't wait to come out for cocktails in the sunshine this summer!

Check out the Still Room website for more info and menus, and keep an eye out for some of their cocktail recipes we'll be sharing over coming weeks.

Goldie - 75 Taranaki Street, Wellington

Goldie is Wellington's newsest and most sparkly milk bar and eatery, serving up shakes, waffles, fries, hot dogs, soft serve and bubble tea.

Belle from Goldie used to head into our soda shop after school all the time to order her favourite - Spiders - so now she's pretty excited to have Six Barrel Soda Co. on her very own menu.

Goldie's Six Barrel drinks include Spiders, Jelly Sodas and Bubble Sodas, made with some of our favourite classic soda syrups: Cola, Creaming Soda, Cherry & Pomegranate, Orange & Dandelion, Raspberry & Lemon and Hibiscus.

Why Six Barrel? Aside from the obvious Spider-nostalgia, Belle loves that Six Barrel has great unique flavours and is a trusted local brand.

Goldie will be re-vamping their soda menu in the next few seasons, so keep an eye out for some new and exciting drinks, hopefully the Goldie signature gold touch.
