Welcome to Instyl

The Ultimate Drink Mixing Solution

Our Journey

Instyl is a new venture co-founded by two Queen’s University students. So far, we have won Belfast City Council’s Business Idea Competition, Queen’s Dragon’s Den, and were awarded an innovation voucher from InvestNI.

We are now taking part in in QUBIS programme to help spread awareness of our idea and  learn more about the potential market.

We’ve embarked on a journey to transform the way you enjoy cocktails and want to hear your thoughts!

Our Idea

Our tea-bag-like bags are packed with a carefully curated blend of dry ingredients. Add them to your preferred alcohol and mixer – be it gin and tonic, vodka and lemonade, or any other combination – and experience the authentic taste of your favourite cocktails..

The Problem

RTD (ready to drink) cocktails contain a low alcohol volume, typically 4%. There is little option on the market for consumers who want alcohol free RTD’s or high-alcohol RTD’S.

 Cocktailbags offer a solution to this problem by allowing the consumer to decide exactly how much alcohol they want to add to their drink.

Our Solution

At Instyl, we understand that every drinker is unique. That’s why we empower you to customize your drink just the way you like it. With Cocktailbags, you have the freedom to decide the alcohol level in your cocktail – from alcohol-free creations to a more robust mix for those seeking a higher kick. It’s your call, and it’s all about enjoying your beverage on your terms.


Cocktaibags offer an easy, no-fuss way to craft your favourite cocktails in an instant. 

Control & Creativity

We believe you deserve the power to choose exactly how your drink is made. With Instyll cocktail bags you can experiment with different spirits and mixers to create your unique blend that matches your mood and taste. 

Novelty Meets Functionality

Instyl Cocktailbags are more than just a product – they’re a conversation starter. The novelty of our concept makes it a hit among friends, but exceptional functionality that keeps you coming back for more.
