Reasons to Invest

Hardscoop's revenue growth has doubled year over year for the past 3 years.
We believe the two things that make people the happiest are ice cream and alcohol. So we handcraft every single Hardscoop to be downright divine.
Direct-to-consumer (DTC) shipping of wine grew to $3.7 billion in 2020 which was the largest year-over-year increase ever 27%.

Overview


Fruit. Dairy. Alcohol.

That's it. And our mission is just as simple as our ingredients - to make people happy. 


We believe the two things that make people the happiest are ice cream and alcohol. So we handcraft every single Hardscoop to be downright divine. 


From using simple, delectable ingredients, to sourcing our milk from the finest farms - the result is high-quality, mouth-watering boozy ice cream.

The Problem


Consumers Are Looking for a New Way to Enjoy Alcohol

Changing consumer demands have made the reach of traditional alcohol distribution antiquated and inefficient - even for the most creative and innovative brands in the alcohol industry. 


Not to mention, there is no easy way to distribute or purchase frozen alcohol products.

The Solution


Hello Hardscoop

Hardscoop has developed a line of alcohol-infused ice cream and sorbet products that can be shipped nationwide.


We use direct-to-customer shipping and the power of e-commerce to reach an unprecedented amount of customers that traditional alcohol distribution simply cannot.

Hardscoop is a product that will bring…


  • New industry category

  • Distribution solution

  • Enhanced purchasing convenience

The Market


Frozen is Getting Hot

The frozen novelties subcategory has been ironically heating up -  with dollar sales soaring $5.7B, and unit sales jumping 9.1% to $1.6B.


This means the direct-to-consumer space represents a huge opportunity.


With consumers spending less time shopping the aisles, easy-to-navigate and functional direct-to-consumer models will unlock much opportunity in the category.

Here’s more on our specs in the fast-growing market:

Our Traction


Making Moves

We currently have a multi-state distribution, and here’s where that has led us...


  • Sold to date over 110,000 pints 

  • Sales increased 108% in 2020 over 2019.

  • Created a line of alcohol products that meet regulatory criteria for legal, online distribution nationwide.

Permits registered and approved:

  • Federal Distilled Spirits Permit 

  • Federal Winery Permit 

  • Federal Industrial Alcohol Manufacturing Permit

Registered Trademarks:

  • Hardscoop

  • Skinnyscoop

What We Do


We are Alcohol Ice Cream

Hardscoop ice cream and sorbets are 8-10.5% ABV alcohol products. 


Each serving of Hardscoop is the alcohol equivalent to a glass of wine or beer - and sold by the pint.


And, just like every great recipe out there… Hardscoop is a trade secret process. But, we can give you a little sneak peek on why our ice cream is so good. 

To flavor our sorbets, we puree real fruit, freshly picked from local farms. Strawberries from North Carolina. Peaches from South Carolina. We’re committed to every step of the process — from grinding our own coffee beans to blending our own proprietary alcohol base.

We source our dairy from the finest local farms to create our decadent ice cream base. In fact, the quality of our dairy base places us in the “ultra-premium” category of ice cream — making for smoother, creamier spoonfuls.


Is your mouth watering yet? 

The Business Model


The Scoop on Sales

When it comes to our sales in retail locations, our current partners include Lowes Foods, Harris Teeter, Cost Plus World Market, and Total Wine.


And here’s where we are headed: 


  • Expansion with sales online throughout the US.

  • Growth in retail sales.

  • Quickly and efficiently reach our market with ecommerce. 

  • Cost Effective growth by eliminating burdensome overhead costs associated with traditional alcohol distribution.

How We Are Different


More Than a Brand

Hardscoop is in the non-traditional alcohol category - which is growing exponentially. 


And with our obsessive eye on quality-control, we produce, pack, and ship all of our own products in-house. 

We are different because…


  • Competitors are either ice creams with no alcohol, a tiny amount of alcohol, or use spirits that you can't ship.  We believe that we are the only alcohol ice cream with federal distillery and wine permits, allowing our registered flavors to be legally shipped to 40 plus states. 

  • Our broad intellectual property portfolio makes for a strong competitive advantage. Thanks to our IP portfolio, we believe that our position is largely defensible, and as we continue to build our brand through increased marketing and branding campaigns — including our iconic packaging — we believe our control of this market is likely to hold firm.

The Vision


The Scoop on the Future

Our products are new to the space - and we aim to keep taking our products to the next level. 


We will soon be expanding our line of products powered by our unique alcohol manufacturing process - all to be available nationwide.


This means going beyond our brick & mortar customer service at our flagship store in Charleston SC, and moving into major sports venues and theaters. We will then continue to grow and cultivate existing and new wholesale and retail accounts.


Future products include Skinnyscoop, a low calorie ice cream and sorbet, along with some unique Ready-to-Drink products.

HardScoop Chosen to Make Painkiller® RTDs For Nationwide Distribution

10 months ago

HardScoop, maker of alcohol ice creams and sorbets in a collaboration with Pusser’s Rum has been chosen to make the world famous Pusser’s Rum PAINKILLER® Cocktails in a can (Ready To Drink, RTD). The PAINKILLER® is one of only four registered trademarked cocktails in the world of alcohol. Born in the British Virgin Islands using the world famous Navy Rum that was served on the British Navy Ships for 300 years. Pusser’s Rum is presently distributed nationally in the United States and 11 other countries.

HardScoop Distillery & Winery located in Charleston, South Carolina has been in commerce since 2017 making alcohol ice creams and sorbets that are sold in the Carolinas at major retailers and through e-commerce nationally. HardScoop will begin production of the PAINKILLER® in January 2022 with a national rollout starting in April 2022.

The PAINKILLER® will be sold in 4-Packs in a 12 ounce sleek can wherever spirit based alcohol is sold. The alcohol content will be 12.5 Alcohol by Volume (ABV).  This is the first time a Pusser’s Rum product has been produced and canned for consumption. 

“Our new canning system will give us the flexibility to produce up to 18,000 canned cocktails per day or 200,000 cases per year. Next year we plan to double our capacity. I believe we were picked due to our team's talent, innovation and the ability to produce more complex products” said CEO of HardScoop David Kirby.

HARDSCOOP RTD Canning Capabilities

10 months ago

Consumers are increasingly reaching for RTD cocktails over traditional beer, wine, and spirits.  RTD cocktails have continued to lead growth across all spirits categories. This fast-growing trend represents an opportunity for HARDSCOOP to expand its product lines and diversify our brands. 

HARDSCOOPS addition of full service RTD canning capabilities will dramatically increase our Alcohol Platform Company.  The ability for branded and co-packing canned products at  Hardscoop has been planned for sometime.  

This $250,000 investment made in September by Hardscoop, we believe, will give Hardscoop canning capabilities up to  50 cans per minute in Phase 1 of their canning operation. Phase 2 next year should take Hardscoop to 100 cans per minute. In addition to making our own canned RTD products, Hardscoop plans to co-pack  and offer Private label production for other companies.

 

HARDSCOOP Announces the Addition of Full Service Canning Capabilities

11 months ago

HardScoop Inc., a South Carolina Corporation, and Federally & State Permitted Distillery & Winery known for its Alcohol Ice Cream’s and Sorbets today announces the addition of full service canning capabilities which will dramatically increase their Alcohol Platform Company.  The ability for branded and co-packing canned products at  Hardscoop has been planned for sometime. 


This investment will give Hardscoop canning capabilities up to  50 cans per minute in Phase 1 of their canning operation. Phase 2 next year will take Hardscoop to 100 cans per minute. In addition to making their own canned products, Hardscoop will be co-packing  and offering Private label production for other companies.  The canning line will run the following sizes, 8 oz, 12oz sleek and  16 ounce cans. Full-wrapped cartons, tray shrink, and variety pack options will be available. The line will be operational December 2021.

“We are excited to unlock these services to both existing customers and new CoPack customers as well as our own branded cans. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic RTDs (Ready To Drink Cocktails) are one of the fastest growing categories in the beverage space and this expansion will allow us to further develop long-term relationships with leading brands,” says David Kirby, CEO.

About HardScoop Inc.

Hardscoop was an idea brought to life by Jason Kirby, President of Hardscoop Inc. in 2013, and came into commerce in 2017 in Charleston, South Carolina. With a primary goal of developing something totally new to the Alcohol Industry that had the legs to scale.  Perfecting this dream with the Hardscoop team, Hardscoop Alcohol Ice Creams and Sorbets with ABV of 8 to 10 % are now sold in retail across the Carolinas and are being shipped nationally. With more retail locations being added and the E-Commerce growing it was time to bring on Phase 2 of the business plan. Canned Cocktails.
