About our Gin & Prosecco van

Tipple in a TukTuk is a sister company to View from the Slow Lane; so as we already had 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 we often hear the question ‘what will my guests do while we are having our photos taken?’ or ‘do I need entertainment over our drinks reception?’  Juniper would be a fabulous option for any reception drinks, be it at a wedding or private party as she is entertainment in herself, it is not often you get to ‘pull a Prosecco’.

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

The Gin

 We supply locally produced gin from the ever-growing Scottish Gin market. From sweet to spicy; fruity to smoky; floral to herby; there is a gin for every palette. We offer event packages combining both gin & tonics & Prosecco, or cocktail packages (yup that’s gin & Prosecco cocktails). Aside from drinks served from our gin & Prosecco van, we can also provide a handpicked Scottish gin tasting session, covering a selection of varieties and distillers from across Scotland which we can bring to a location of your choosing.

The Bubbly & THE 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.
