What is Bliss in a Bottle?
At Bliss In A Bottle (BIAB) bottles of beer, wine, Champagne, soda and juice are expertly paired with Belgian chocolate and inclusions for the two to be enjoyed together.
While Instructions are on the back of the hangtag and ingredients on the inside; following is how it all works. Each bottle is first placed in a food grade sleeve and chocolate is hand-painted on and then drizzled or topped with confections. A ribbon runs down the side beneath the sleeve that when pulled releases the sleeve and the chocolate from the bottle
All assembled get to eat, drink and be merry!
We like to say we just solved a problem you didn’t even know you had!
The large assortment of items offers something for every occasion, holiday, gathering and lifecycle event.
Bottles can be custom labeled for corporate gifts and amenities. They make great individual gifts, favors to now being the centerpiece for zoom get-togethers where everyone has the same thing to enjoy.
Bliss team members are available to conduct virtual chocolate and wine pairing events for parties, team-building and any celebration. Using Callebaut Belgian chocolate and sourcing all the finest ingredients; pairings are created to complement flavor and texture. I personally curate each pairing so that there is something to suit every palate. It’s a fun job!
While there are tried and true staples that are always in the assortment, pairings contain ever-changing combinations of sweet and savory ingredients. The selection changes seasonally and with a wine’s new vintage.
Where to find Bliss?
Prior to the pandemic customers purchased BIAB in shopping mall kiosks throughout Ohio, in Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina, and online. Now purchases are almost exclusively online and a new licensing model has just been launched to make the brand available in additional states.
As a licensee an existing fine wine and liquor store would be trained to dip the bottles using our recipes and branded items. There will be one licensee per state, or county where intrastate shipping is permissible as that store will be awarded the processing of all the web orders for the defined area. This will open up distribution in states which would not be able to receive bottles interstate from across state lines.
International shipping is entirely different; there is almost no limit to countries where direct to consumer or wholesale shipping is prohibited. We have just been awarded this permit and are working to determine the resources needed to do international search engine marketing and optimization.
The Bliss in a Bottle URL ranks high in the search engines and Google indexes and is heavily marketed for consumer reach. The newly launched licensing model just became available and we are actively considering licensees in the following states, Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, 4 counties in Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachesetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri , Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, 4 counties in Texas, several cities in Tennessee,
Washington. We are taking suggestions for potential licensees.
It was a very big decision to seek out the certification of the OU. I have had dairy certification under local supervision in the past and customers requested Pareve. Seven years ago I started offering kosher catering after catering my youngest son’s Bar Mitzvah party at our Chabad House. I began to keep Kosher myself having enjoyed learning about the customs and process of observance of the dietary laws. I figured if I was going to offer Kosher I should go for it with the most internationally recognized hechsure there is.
I personally feel very happy to be able to offer such a high quality and unique gift item. If I can figure out the marketing to increase sales where I can ship and find licensees to increase distribution I have no doubt that this will be a go-to item for gifts and amenities that will bring Bliss to many for all simchas!
