Truly Ginspired

A Rice Beaufort horsebox, which was originally made in Leicester, has been given a new lease of life as a mobile gin bar. The transformation was the idea of local girl, Alice Brown, who decided to make her dream come true of owning her own bar and take the leap to combine her passion for gin with her love of people, and so Tin & Tonic was born.
With a contemporary twist, the grey exterior and warm midnight blue and copper interior offers something unique and quirky that stands out and would bring something a little different to any occasion from weddings, and private parties (such as birthdays, anniversaries, garden parties and hen dos) to corporate events and festivals.
The bar serves a range of craft gins, paired with premium mixers and garnishes which complement the specific botanicals within each different blend.
Alice commented “There are so many amazing gins out there, so we are on a mission to sample them all and find the best of the best!”
Britain’s growing thirst for gin has transformed the industry and seen the number of distilleries more than double in the last five years. Sales of artisan brands have been particularly popular as the demand for interesting gins made by small scale craft producers grows.
“We’re in the midst of a gin boom”, Alice added, “Gin is now the most popular spirit in Britain. So we like to think we are doing a public service, offering to bring it to our customers doorsteps!”
In addition to gin, Tin & Tonic also serves a range of other beverages such as prosecco, beer and premium soft drinks for those who prefer an alternative tipple and are happy to produce a bespoke menu for customers events with drinks suited to their requirements. 
Alice is already looking to develop the business with the addition of a pop up bar for indoor events as well as an extension for the horsebox made from up-cycled materials, which will provide a seating area for customers. She will also be introducing gin tasting events later on in the year.
