Happy Birthday To Us!

It’s our 2nd birthday! And what better way to celebrate, other than a drink, to learn a bit about our history and get to know us a bit more!

How it started

We started back in the ye olde times of 2018 with the purchase of 1966 split screen VW campervan with the idea to convert it into a mobile bar that can be hired for events, weddings, parties etc. The split screen underwent an extensive refurbishment where everything apart from the shell was replaced. The rear was then converted to open up as a bar.

When the camper was up and running we spent a year touring the country meeting lots of friendly faces! We visited a range of events such as The Wedding Show, classic car shows and a variety of food shows and festivals.

The growth

While doing these events we were approached by a range of different independent producers and suppliers. We could see they had a clear passion for what they were offering and we wanted to support these independent businesses. So, in early 2020 we created an online shop including drinks from many independent producers. 

In the summer of 2020 we took the next step and opened our first bricks and mortar shop at Middleton Hall Courtyard. This was the perfect opportunity to give us a base and to share our passion (and delicious drinks) with you!

The future

We have lots of new and exciting developments in the pipeline that we can’t wait to share with you! So hold onto your hats it’s going to be a thrilling ride!

Keep up to date with all of our developments on our social media channels!
