Vintage Wedding Fair in Chiswick: Complimentary Cocktails

Gin Tin Events are pleased to announce that we'll be serving complimentary gin cocktails for VIP ticket holders at the Vintage Wedding Fair in Chiswick on the 21st February 2016. 

The National Vintage Wedding Fair launched in 2010. It was the first wedding fair of its kind and has provided inspiration for hundreds of brides over the last 4 years, and become a “must go to” day out for every vintage loving bride with her family and friends. 

The Gin Tin team look forward to meeting you all and answering any questions you may have about our services, as well as sharing the wonderful story behind our horse box bar. 



One Wedding, One Anniversary and a 21st Birthday...


Our mobile bar is available to hire for all kinds of occasions and when an Oxfordshire family asked the Gin Tin team to help them celebrate three – all under the same marquee roof – it was particularly special.

We worked with the family to produce four bespoke cocktails, tailored to their tastes and named by themselves for a personal touch.

The Gin Tin was manoeuvred inside their marquee where it was placed centre-stage of the room.  It made a fantastic focal point and we loved being right at the heart of things. 

After reception drinks and tasty plates of paella by Paellaria it was great to see our mixologists serving cocktails to guests who mingled around the horse box before hitting the dance floor.  

For dessert, guests cooled down with an ice cream cone, served from Vee Double Moo's really cute ice cream trike. Then, of course, there was time for more cocktails before the night was up.

We had some lovely feedback, including this from our client, the family's dad, "Everyone loved the Gin Tin... Original, fantastic staff & so accommodating - nothing was too much trouble, simply brilliant!"

Every Equestrian Event Should Have A Horse Box Bar!

London hosted the 11th round of the 2015 Longines Global Champions Tour from Friday 24th - Sunday 26th July at the beautiful Syon Park near Kew Gardens and Gin Tin Events had the honour of being invited to attend the five star show jumping event.

Our professional staff were on hand to provide a selection of gin based cocktails built with Sipsmith's traditional London Dry Gin and in keeping with the surroundings our elderflower and apple 'English Garden' proved most popular.

We also served Hendricks, Bombay Sapphire, Opihr, Pinkster, Burleigh's and City of London over cubed ice with Fever Tree's award winning tonic. 

On Saturday evening we had the pleasure of being asked to provide cocktails for the Longines after party which saw the Gin Tin team moving the horse box across the grounds to a new location - that's the beauty of wheels! But our beloved bar quickly settled into her new location and it was fantastic to be on hand to help the staff unwind after a busy day.

Thank you to everyone who came to say hello to our staff and the Gin Tin and for all your support during our three day event.

The Gin Tin's Debut: Barnfest 2015

On Saturday 06 June, the Gin Tin had its first public outing at a mini-festival in the Staffordshire countryside.  

The event is organised by a friend of Chloe's brother and the laid-back family setting was ideal for our debut; we could test the logistics of serving from a horsebox, and it helped us to identify those finishing touches that will really make the Gin Tin sing.

As the only bar on site, we stepped outside of the Gin speciality and served a range of drinks: as well as Gin & Tonics (of course) we had Pimms, bottles of beer and cider, and casks of local real ale and traditional cider.  We were pleased to see that the G&T was our most popular drink, although as the evening grew cool the red wine and Jack Daniels also became increasingly popular.

We had a really positive response from everyone at the festival, with lots of great feedback about how beautiful and unusual the Gin Tin is.  A big thank you to all who supported us, and especially to Tom and James, who both worked for free!
