The Exotic Booze Club crew has decades of experience working in the drinks industry - from running mobile cocktail bars at events across the globe, including at No.10 Downing Street, through to parties for the Rolling Stones, as well as delivering entertaining drinks experiences for thousands of consumers.
Now we want to create a hub, where we can share our passion for global drinking cultures, and allow guests to experience a holiday in glass (or two).
We're going to create a vintage travel themed bar in the centre of Chester's indoor market. Our "Exotic Booze Club" will be a tasting room and liquor store where we will run our "Tasting Flights". Events will be presented by our expert "Cabin Crew" who guide guests through a selection of food and drinks from their "destination country". These tastings are delivered as fun, sociable experiences - they're educational and introduce guests to new flavours, ingredients and imbibing traditions through boutique craft drinks, snacks and stories.
Because that's what we're about: STORIES - the history and production of drinks, the brewers, distillers, brands, techniques, secrets, myths and magic. Learning that drinking less whilst drinking better is the key to "Spiritual Enlightenment".
Because for us it's not just about great drinks - it's about making people FEEL great about their drinks.
Tasting events will run regularly, but we'll also be open as a shop where you can buy the food and drinks you try - stocking great treats and gifts at competitive prices - or you can simply pop in for a cocktail at the bar.
James lived in the Chester area for 6 years working in the drinks trade - and has witnessed new life being breathed into Chester indoor market. We're excited to join many new traders, alongside the great "street food" offering, and add to the buzz of late night "Foodie Fridays". After seeing the success of "That Beer Place" and now the fantastic new wine retailer "Vinological" we feel like all that's missing is a spirits specialist!
Our vision is to create a fun, educational hub for drinks enthusiasts and the trade alike - a liquor store with a constantly evolving craft drinks selection, plus loads of enjoyable events. We'll be bringing in our industry friends to teach masterclasses, deliver book signings, run guest shifts, set up competitions and run collaborative pop-up experiences.
We're asking you to back our special offers as pre-sale rewards to ensure we can create the best drinks spot in town - and you'll be the ones to benefit! Don't be shy if you're not local, we've also got rewards to use in our online shop - and we also run pop up events across the globe.
So "Come Fly with Us" and help fund our rewards so everyone can enjoy some Tropi-cool times...
