O' Be Cocktails, Bengaluru-based ready-to-drink premium Cocktail startup, has raised INR 3.5 crore in a Bridge round. The funding round is led by Sattva Family Office, Gaurang Jhunjuhwala (partner, Mckinsey), Ankit Bhati (co-founder, OLA), LetsVenture and others. The fund raised will be used to build the scale of the distribution to reach every cocktail consumer in India and also for broadening the current range of the startup.

"We have crafted a great range of ready to drink cocktails with the art of mixology and science of consistency, consumers and our investors loved the cocktails. The current investment is going to help us reach O' Be Cocktails with a wider range of consumers. At O' Be, we are aiming to lead the ready to drink industry in Indian markets and outside," said Nitesh Prakash, founder and CEO, O' Be Cocktails.

O' Be Cocktail has sold 1 lakh cocktails and is planning to 10 lakh in the next 12 months across Pan India and projecting a monthly revenue of INR 1 crore.
