Thats pretty much how 2020 ended and 2021 started for us. We had an amazing response to our cocktail boxes. MASSIVE THANKS to everyone that ordered cocktail boxes, gin boxes and bottles from me over the last few months. Your support has been amazing.
So, 2021, here we go again. I had planned a few days/weeks rest after Christmas the boredom soon kicked in, I was back at work in no time. So far this week I have; overhauled the website (let me know your feedback on it), created new information booklets for different clients, spoken with some amazing couples to organise their wedding days and managed to watch Series 1 of Bridgerton on Netflix! Not bad going for someone taking a couple of days off.
We have some new things coming out in the next few weeks. Firstly 'Gin of the Month'. Several people have asked me why I don't set up my own Gin Subscription service...the main answer is I'm not keen on the idea and I don't want to get into the legislation attached to having that responsibility. Plus, I sell the drinks I sell because I like the drinks, I know the owners and believe in their brand and most important to me, I don't sell it because they offer it to me at a low price. So I will be offering Gin of the Month, it's purely optional to purchase it. I will be giving a deadline for orders and we can go from there. Secondly, cocktails. I really miss not being in the bar, making all of the cocktails over the last few weeks has reminded me how much I love the experimenting of flavours and producing nice drinks. So, Im going to continue offering cocktail boxes, not on a subscription. Each cocktail box will be based on a a theme and will be available to order via my social media channels and email. A new box will roughly come out every month, they will be related to a theme of that month.
We are currently in 'engagement season'. Im talking to lots of lovely couples, planning their days, they all sound awesome. I love working on individual plans for weddings to create something truly unique for each couple. I'm also working on a blog post to help couples with their wedding bar service. Wedding Bars are quite complex and take a lot of planning. Hopefully the blog post will help people with this and see why you pay for a wedding bar. Simply put...why do brides spend so much on wedding dresses? Because they want something special, they want a designer to create something for them, they call on professionals for help, respect their knowledge and guidance to ensure they get the perfect dress. ... So why not use a professional when selecting a wedding bar? Hopefully the blog post will help out.
Short and sweet for now. Keep your eyes peeled on the social media to see when things are launched. Ooh, make sure you are following them both @barsofdistinction and @thegintinbar
Happy New Year!!
