Supplier Spotlight – Shaken not stirred with Scott from the Pop-Up Cocktail Bar   

According to Wedding Wire, 2020 will be the year of the customised cocktail. While signature cocktails have been popular with couples for a few years now, this year the trend will be taken up a notch with additions like custom edible paper, stamped ice cubes and interactive bars on wheels.

At Chew Valley Weddings, we’re lucky enough to work with one of the best mobile bars in the business. The guys at the Pop-Up Cocktail Bar certainly know a thing or two about concocting the tastiest tipples.

Here they tell us a bit about their business and drink trend predictions for 2020…

Hi Scott, tell us how the Pop-Up Cocktail Bar started?

The business was started almost five years ago by myself and a colleague at the time called Grant. We were running (Grant as Manager and myself as Assistant Manager) a cocktail bar in Bath when we started doing cocktail making and gin tasting classes on the side.

We were asked a couple of times if we could offer a pop up bar, which we couldn’t at the time, but decided it might be something we could potentially look into and it went from there really.

Our first ever event was a cocktail bar for global conglomerate Unilever’s annual awards at their HQ in London – crazy stuff!

What services do you provide?

We provide three different services: cocktail making classes, gin tasting sessions and also full bar hire for weddings and events.

Gin will continue to be trendy and sales won’t slow down. Tequila, in particular Mezcal, will be the next ‘big thing’! There will also be a surge of non-alcoholic spirits onto the market.
