This Mobile Gin Van Brings the Bar to You
Don’t go to the bar, let the bar come to you. There’s now a mobile gin bar roving around the U.K., bringing G&Ts and other gin-based drinks straight to your doorstep. It’s the perfect service for hosts who need to refresh a crowd, or extremely thirsty gin lovers who just don’t want to leave their own stoop.
Nicknamed “The Wanderer,” the boozy van comes equipped with a range of high-end gin brands, as well as ales and other refreshments for those who opt out of the juniper-forward spirit, according to Metro. Nick Whitby of The New World Trading Company, which operates The Wanderer, says the concept was a response to requests for custom cocktails and drinks for events from the bar and restaurant group.
The on-demand cocktail bar sounds a lot like a boozy Uber or pizza delivery service, but it doesn’t come cheap. It’ll run you 1,500 pounds (just under $2,000) to rent the van, and another 500 pounds (about $650) for the bar team. It’s a small price to pay to be able to say to all your guests, “To the gin mobile!”
