METRO MANILA / FOOD / Drinks / Cocktails
Founders: Ryan Alvarez and Angela Edrosa
1. What got you started with this brand? What was your inspiration? What is the idea/concept behind it?
My boyfriend, Ryan Alvarez, and I, Angela Edrosa, wanted to fill our time in quarantine with something we both enjoy. I thought why not sell bottled cocktails?
We both love to drink and with Woozy Whale, mixing drinks and making Woozybears is now one of our quality time activities together.
After a month of selling bottled cocktails, I had this idea of making it into gummy bears. I thought that spiked gummies were interesting and fun, and I wanted to add our twist, which became Woozybears, our cocktail gummy bears.
We wanted to come up with a name that is underrated and catchy at the same time. Our concept is what you’d feel when drinking–woozy! Thus, Woozy Whale. Our labels and packaging are whales in different languages. (it’s like when you drink too much and start speaking English fluently HAHAHA)
2. What is your best-selling product?
For bottled cocktails, the best-seller is Orque, Moscato Sangria. This is our signature cocktail, which is sweet and fruity.
For Woozybears, Blanca, which is our Margarita cocktail in gummy bear version.
3. What do you want people to experience with your brand/product(s)?
We want our clients to have a hassle-free drink, thus our bottles come in their suggested garnish so that all you have to do is get a glass with ice and enjoy! You may add Woozybears as sinkers in your drinks.
4. What tips and advice can you give to entrepreneurs who are just starting out or are planning to start their own brand?
Not everyone will like your products and that’s okay. What’s important is that you are passionate about it and you believe in it.
Strangers may support you more than your friends.
5. What’s next for your brand?
We will be expanding our shop. Since our main location is in Quezon City, we wanted to share our goodies to the south. We’ll be opening another branch in Paranaque City. Also, we are thinking of adding freebies and new flavors for the holidays!
6. What other additional information and details would you like to share?
We only use freshly squeezed juice and quality alcohol. Every bottle and pack is made to order to ensure the freshness of our products. We made sure that our products are of quality that we would personally consume.
