About Us

Tipple in a TukTuk is the latest offering from View from the Slow Lane; already having a fleet of quirky classic vehicles, ‘Juniper’ the Gin & Prosecco van felt right at home. 

Our converted TukTuk‘Juniper’ is a 3-wheeled Piaggio Ape van; measuring 1.5 metres by 3 metres she is small enough to fit into most event spaces, marquees or even your back garden.  

Being in the wedding industry and often hearing the question ‘what will my guests do while we are having our photos taken?’ when we came across Juniper we knew she was easily the answer to that.

Combine the above with our love for Gin together with a rather alcohol fuelled family effort on name suggestions and Tipple in a TukTuk was born.

The Bubbly & Prosecco

Our Prosecco & frizzante van serves flash cooled Frizzante on tap, a lightly sparkling wine from a 20L keg. Each 20L keg serves on average 160 flutes. 

Glera Frizzante is made 100% from the Prosecco/Glera grape, produced in the region of Veneto following the strictest controls associated with all Prosecco wine. It is available in 75cl bottles and 20L kegs. While both formats contain the same Prosecco wine, Italian agricultural law stipulates that only the 75cl bottle can carry the ‘Prosecco' label, whilst kegs should be known by the Roman name of the Prosecco grape, ‘Glera'. This distinction has no influence on the quality or authenticity of the delicious sparkling wine inside.

The Gin

We supply locally produced gin from the ever-growing Scottish Gin market. From sweet to spicy; fruity to smokey; floral to herby; there is a gin for every palette. We offer event packages combining both gin & tonics & Prosecco or cocktail packages (yup both together in one glass!!) or simply a handpicked Scottish gin tasting session covering a selection of varieties and distillers from across Scotland.
