Loved by Coco… The Travelling Gin Co.

Written by Emma Hla
A few weeks ago I introduced the first Loved by Coco star – the rather fabulous vintage stylist Kate Fletcher from Vintage Style Hire fame – and over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing the talents of even more gorgeous supplier finds and the latest in venue offerings, all loved by Coco… That’ll me be then. 

Hopefully the folks featured here can help you create the wedding of your dreams, with a touch of class, a dash of sparkle and a whole heap of style…

So for todays Loved by Coco I wanted to have a little tipple with you folks.

Gin to be precise. 

Got your attention…?


Now pass the lime.

I first came across The Traveling Gin Co. when I was on the hunt for my own rustic spin on cocktail hour…

I instantly fell in love with The TGC’s very cool website and to-die-for branding… I’m a sucker for a bit of hot design.

A pop-up drinks project created by Edward Godden and Joseph Lewis, The Travelling Gin Co. is a mobile bar serving gin based cocktails via a workmen bicycle collection.

The TGC was created by Edward Godden & Joseph Lewis in 2012 after a cycling trip from London to Amsterdam.

Their butcher style bicycles have been configured to serve refreshing gin & tonics, along with other gin based cocktails and soft alternatives via a spirit optic and wicker basket attached to the bike’s front frame.

The summer of 2012 was the boys first season in full operation, cycling across London and other areas of the UK, even travelling so far as the Michelberger Hotel in Berlin – to coincide with the Euro 2012 football tournament!

Their list of satisfied clients is an impressive read: Aesop, Ally Capellino, Gail’s Bakery, Google London & Zagat, Labour & Wait, Michelberger Hotel, National Trust (Young Curators), Royal Institute Of British Architects, Ted Baker, Wellcome Collection/Wellcome Trust… and the list goes on.

The setup is compact (only the size of a bicycle or two) and they require no electricity / power, so can provide a completely mobile bar service in the most remote locations – perfect for all you Rustic and Bohemian festival Brides!

So why not hop across and visit the boys at The Travelling Gin Co. or drop them an email with your own cocktail requirements…

Whether you’d like G&Ts and champagne post-ceremony, or your entire bar needs taken care of, The TGC can provide a wide range of drinks and staffing options for weddings across the UK.

For 2014 the boys have launched a new bespoke cocktail design service – give them an inkling of your favourite flavours and Edward & Joseph can rustle up something brand new for your special occasion.

P.s. it doesn’t have to include gin, but they highly recommend it!

Lots of love…
