Take 1 creative, driven (and slightly delusional) couple, a love of Gin, 20 years catering and 10 years renovation experience. Mix with a few too many drinks, a large measure of optimism, and some hefty disappointment from the current Gin festival and cocktail caravan offering and you have….
The Rolling Cocktail Company
In 2017 we bought a vintage 1970 caravan and turned it into a really cool mobile bar. We also built a bar which we used alongside our caravan to serve 250 guests at our first gig – an absolutely stunning and mega fun wedding in East Pennard.
As if we hadn’t been busy enough, we also decided to host a gin festival to launch the 2017 Wells Food Festival. We’d been to a few gin festivals and we thought they were a bit…. well… a bit crap! We were herded around big halls, where (and we hated to admit it) there were frankly too many gins. The massive halls with choices of 50 – 100 gins were overwhelming and although we were given a shiny guide to get us through the armies of passionless staff, we couldn’t actually read it after a few samples! We wanted to talk to the talented, local producers, get cocktail recipes, eat G&T marshmallows and have a lovely time. So we did, well 250 people did while we served them.
The sell-out event was a MASSIVE success and we are currently planning our next exciting drinks festivals.
We also took our caravan – “Dale” (she’s an original Dalesman) – and our delicious cocktails to the Wells Food Festival where we WON BEST ALCOHOLIC DRINK STALL. Sorry for the shouty text, but we’re REALLY proud :). For the rest of the year we’ll be taking Dale to some private Christmas parties and selling some gin themed goodies at the below events while we work out what other festivals we want to go to next year.
