Our HERitage

Welcome to the home of premium Caribbean-inspired cocktails!

Our Founder

Tipsy Lady Cocktails (dba ST. CRÉ) was founded by Charleston, South Carolina resident Toni Gilliard in 2019. Toni first envisioned the concept of while vacationing and touring the rum factories in Barbados, West Indies. During her tour, she recalled connecting with her ancestors by hearing a faint voice whispering the word “legacy.” 

This connection felt almost instant for Toni, who is of Caribbean descent. “Being able to stand on the soil of the world’s first commercial rum distillery which originated three centuries prior was a blessing and a gift from our ancestors,” she recalled.

With a background in Law, Toni used her forward-thinking mindset and creative flair to develop an all-natural, organic, and eco-friendly canned cocktail line, with a strong emphasis on style, femininity, elegance, and authentic taste.
