Meant as a limited edition, the Negroni lip balm worked so well that it was brought back as a regular. For a cocktail so simple (Gin, Campari and sweet Vermouth), the three ingredients actually contain a myriad of herbs and spices.
After a lot of tinkering, the final product is a marriage of a spiced orange and juniper that does the Negroni justice.
Stewart & Claire was founded in 2011 by a couple named Kristin and Phil, who decided to use their middle names to name their lip balm company. The idea came to Kristin when she was enjoying a martini. She thought about how the perfect blend of the perfect ingredients can make the difference in the quality of a drink, and she transposed that thought to an everyday item : the lip balm. Tired of the bubblegum scent of most products out there, she created a line of more subtle, all-natural balms that would please to a more grown up crowd.
