Whether planning your wedding, holding an event or party, for a truly unique and stylish bar experience look no further than Mama Gin.
Imagine a cool vintage Citroen Hy van pulling up at your wedding or party and watching the side flip open to reveal a unique cocktail bar with its own expert bartender and a dazzling selection of Sussex gins, sparkling wines and beers.
Mama Gin is the brainchild of Eliot Rogers and Amelia Taylor who put their skills in running bars and creating classic design to good use when they spotted a 1970s French horse box, just begging to be converted. Now christened ‘Betty’, the van is fully equipped to turn up at any event and dispense anything from bespoke cocktails, a selection of 12 Sussex gins and delicious locally sourced beers, to spirits and wines. Serving the South East and London, Mama Gin offers numerous options including a fabulous ‘wedding deal’ which includes a gin and Prosecco based cocktail, half a bottle of wine and a glass of fizz for the toast for only £15. If you want you can have a cash bar where everyone pays for their own drinks, or a tab bar where you can put some money behind the bar to treat your guests before it becomes a cash bar. There is also the option of a prepaid bar so your guests don’t have to pay for a thing, and a bartenders service should you want to supply the drinks, plus a pre-dinner cocktails service where the team will visit your home to provide cocktails before dinner. These are just a few of the packages Mama Gin offer.
Eliot is super keen to use local products, even down to the fruit and tonic water and he thrives on providing a fun environment for people and catering to personalised ideas for his clients. In addition, a funky handmade wood static bar can be set up either indoors or out; style is clearly a large part of the classy but quirky Mama Gin experience. Despite there being dozens of mouth watering cocktails to choose from on the drinks menu, Eliot can create bespoke cocktails to personal taste and clients can design their own drinks menu if they prefer.
Although weddings are one of the most popular events for Mama Gin, birthdays, corporate events, festivals, parties, hen nights and tastings are all catered for with equal panache. Satisfied customers rave about the service; one lady commented how the Mama Gin mobile bar made her wedding, “such a hit…the guests loved it, the cocktails were delicious…Eliot was so professional, the drinks were made super fast and tasted incredible.” Another client was delighted by, “absolutely beautiful cocktails at fabulous prices,” while another praised the “cute bar with brilliant staff and superb cocktails – they really do know about gin!”
If you’d love these bartenders to spice up your event, Eliot, Amelia and Betty the bar on wheels would be delighted to create a truly original experience guaranteed to satisfy and inspire your friends, family and colleagues. Mama Knows Best!
