Storied Goods is a woman-owned company and maker of handcrafted flavor-infused Sugar Cubes for cocktails, coffee, and tea. Packaged in artfully-designed, sustainable tins, SG gourmet Sugar Cubes make the perfect gift for any occasion to celebrate a storied moment in time. Storied Goods believes in the power of women and celebration to affect monumental shifts in our daily lived experience.
Storied Goods began as a small gesture of love, over a Champagne Cocktail. Martha and her husband were toasting each other, when she wondered if the simple Sugar Cube could be made more beautiful, more flavorful. What began as gifts for family and friends evolved into a serious brand, with retail and wholesale accounts across the country.
Martha's passion for people and bringing joy to a complicated world drove her to create new ways for people to stop and savor special times, both grand and small. For Martha, Storied Goods Sugar Cubes are metaphors: it is not always the big wins, the monumental achievements that give us meaning, but the small celebrations of sweet that bring joy along the way. It’s moments of togetherness, gratitude, and laughter. It's elevating the simple moments in life to become effervescent experiences.
