FAQ

 
 

what is the gin gypsy?

We are a mobile bartending service for hire in the greater Central Maine area. The Gin Gypsy is a renovated 1985 Kingston dual axle bumper pull horse trailer with 2 serving bars and 3 available beer taps.

can we bring our own alcohol?

While we prefer to make your order guide and order directly through our preferred vendor we can always let you take your alcohol order wherever you prefer. We create an exclusive invoice for liquor purchases allowing you to know exactly how much of everything you would need to provide our bartenders with, you can take this form anywhere that sells alcohol and purchase and transport the supplies to your event yourself.

do you have a liquor license?

We do not have a liquor license, we are partnered with a local wholesale vendor who provides all the alcohol for our events directly to the host. We work closely with our vendors to make your ordering seamless by having all ice and alcohol delivered directly to the trailer at your event meaning you don’t have to lift a finger for us.

What do you bring?

We bring almost everything your event requires for alcohol service except the alcohol, although we can have it delivered at the same time we deliver your ice directly to the trailer at your event. We provide ice, shakers, all mixers and garnishes, plastic drink glasses, straws and cocktail napkins along with our beer taps and bartenders.

what does the gin gypsy require from us for events?

We require access to a power source to plug our leader cord into. If you are having an offsite event or don’t have access to power we can provide a generator for an additional charge. We ask that all of our clients plan and prepare for the 7ft by 12ft space necessary to park the Gypsy at your event as well. While we provide liquor liability insurance it is always best to review your venues policy and verify whether you will need your own event insurance as well.

what type of events do you serve?

We are available to hire for any style specialty event, while weddings is our largest market we love to serve family gatherings, business functions, retirement parties, the sky is the limit!

We can use the trailer for liquor service, dessert bar, photo booth, and any style non-alcoholic liquid catering service.

Where are you located and how far will you travel?

We are based in Bangor, Maine and travel free of charge within 50 miles. If your event is further than 50 miles we charge an additional $1.00 per mile ONE WAY.
