I can't believe the last blog post was before Christmas. We have been very busy and made good progress in preparation for the summer ahead.
We started the new year developing relationships with our current business colleagues and creating new relationships both locally and across the UK. We are aiming to provide a strong, high quality selection of Gin within the bar and therefore need to be talking to the right people and undertaking the right research to offer this. Watch this space, the gins are on their way. Whilst we will offer internationally known gins, we are looking to support local craft distillers to raise their brand awareness.
The bar is very nearly completed, images will be unveiled soon......
Staffing, we are in the process of meeting the amazingly talented staff that will be working on the bar. Friends have been awesome and volunteered their support but over the summer I will need to be employing others. They will be in the bar images in the future.
At the moment we are confirming our events for this summer, we have focussed on the local area for this year but who knows where we may end up. Follow us on Facebook @thegintinbar for regular updates about our whereabouts. If you see us, come and say hello!
The Gin Tin Gifts
We have been granted a premises licence (Woohoo!) so we are now able to sell our gifts online at all times. Prior to having the licence gifts had to be sold at events, now we are able to take orders and payments online from our customers. Please get in touch if you need a gift. We can customise any gift to an alcohol of your choice. Our gifts start from £5 upwards. The average price is £35-40. Please see our FB page to read the amazing reviews we have had about gifts. Who wouldn't love a Gin gift??? Our Easter gifts will be launched later this week.
Pop Up Bars
Our 'pop up' bars at small events are becoming very popular. If you're having a group of friends for a get together and would like a Gin Bar, get in touch. We can offer parties from 8 people upwards. We come with everything apart from a kitchen sink!! Our 'pop up' bar can either be operated like a normal bar service or we can price per head for a set amount of drinks. We can tailor the drinks to match your needs. We supply what you want!
BBC Radio - Good Evening Wales
Last Friday I was invited to the Good Evening Wales show to talk about the growth of then industry and the change in demographics. As I said on the programme, ' I really do think there is a gin drink out there for everyone'. If you haven't found yours yet, come and find me and I will help you find your 'Gin'.
We are all really excited to be revealing images of the bar in the next few weeks and are really excited to show it off at all of our events. If you would like us at your event, please contact us at email@example.com, if you see us out and about come and say hello!
The future of The Gin Tin is looking awesome, I am already working on further business ideas to be launched after the busy summer season, watch this space for news late September.
Look forward to meeting you all this summer
