Tell us a bit about your business…

We are mobile bar specialists, focusing on the artisan approach to making drinks. Whether it’s a local craft beer, carefully selected wine, or a bespoke cocktail menu designed specifically for the client’s needs, we believe in providing the perfect drink for the perfect occasion.

We believe as every event is unique, so must the drink offering be. We work with the client to find out what they want, understand the demographic, the location, the flavour profiles, the ‘in jokes’, and put together a drinks menu that is not only delicious but also personal.

We have built two portable bars out of reclaimed timber, and designed an Airstream which was built from scratch and made to our specification to operate from. The airstream can serve around 300 guests, and portable bars can handle about 150 guests each, depending on the drink offering.

What made you start up the business…

I have worked in, and managed cocktail bars for the last 10 years. I have worked in Canada, Dubai, Cardiff and London and have seen huge growth in the industry, especially in the UK. Consumers are now more aware than ever. With so many great Breweries now based in the UK, so many great gins now being distilled, with British wine thriving, it’s an exciting time to be involved in the drinks industry. I wanted to setup a bar that celebrates this, and what better way than putting some wheels on it and bringing it to the consumer.

What makes you unique…

I believe the personal service, the time taken to understand the client and the client’s needs, the bespoke cocktail menus, the quality of drinks, and the imagination of the cocktails, all helps to set us apart. Adding that to either the airstream or the portable bars and you’ve got a truly unique service.  

What kind of couples match your style…

With our unique personal approach to designing drink menus and our ability to adapt and cater for the client’s needs, we are versatile enough to match most couples. 

Our service is very personal, as we are a small business, the couples deal directly with me, there is no middle man. We are very passionate about what we do and passionate about delivering a successful and memorable experience to every couple. We don’t settle for ‘good’.

Tell us what you love about your business…

I have been involved in the drinks industry for around 10 years, I’ve love the history around alcohol, the role in society it takes, how what you drink can so often embody your emotion.

The customer interaction is also a truly great aspect of the job, and helping someone discover a new drink, or making them a beloved classic I think fills every bartender with joy. However seeing an event that you’ve been working on come together is the ultimate.

Most favourite wedding/event…

I’ve loved every event we’ve done, all of them are unique and great in different ways. However the first event we did, just a small cocktail party, will always stick long in the memory.  

People’s reaction to your business…

The reaction has been very positive. People love the idea of getting great drinks, served in fun and imaginative ways, at events, festivals and weddings.  A lot of attention has been initially directed towards the airstream, but the drinks and service, certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Future plans…

The future plans of the business is to grow steadily and establish ourselves. We are currently in talks with several clients over various events and festivals. Our long term goal is to be the market leader.

Well, I wouldn’t say no to a little tipple from these guys…Welcome to the team!
