Introducing: The Fentimans Botanical Bars We're proud to present the latest creation to come out of our workshop!
The Quirky Team have been hard at work in the Somerset workshop over the winter, building two 16 foot long Botanical Bars for Fentimans. We unveiled the first fully branded bar at Tall Ships Royal Greenwich in April, and surrounded the Botanical Bar with parasols, comfortable chairs and greenery to create a Fentimans oasis in East London.
The Botanical Bar concept is something we spent a long time perfecting and the months in our workshop have paid off, as the team have completely transformed ordinary catering trailers into beautiful rustic bars that are distinctly 'Fentimans'. The wooden panelling on the front of the bars is complemented by matte black signs, ensuring that the mobile bars will stand out on the road this summer.
The Botanical Bars come with a full suite of custom-made garden furniture, creating a comfortable and relaxing area that customers will want to revisit many times over. And of course, our portrayal of the botanical beauty of Fentimans wouldn't be complete without a variety of plants - we even intertwined ivy in the rafters inside the bar. Every detail is just right - from the copper embellishment to the botanical brewing kit and copper still installed inside the bar.
The Tall Ships regatta took place over the Easter Bank Holiday and attracted hundreds of thousands of people, making it the largest event in all of London during the long weekend. The visitors were able to enjoy a delicious botanical drink from Fentimans in the wonderful weather, relax in our deckchairs without a care in the world.
