Our cute pink Piaggio Apé is custom-built to bring bubbles, beers, cocktails and big smiles to all kinds of wedding - whether you're after a laid-back festival vibe, quirky urban chic, or full-on diva spectacular.
You could call it retro-cool, we actually call it 'Pinky'.
Pinky is teeny-tiny enough to fit into most spaces inside or outside, from trendy tipis to glorious gardens.
Its eye-popping paintwork is bright enough to stand out in any crowd.
And with four taps pouring perfectly chilled fizz or beer, Pinky will keep any party going for as long as you like!
What services do you offer?
Pinkerton's Prosecco Van provides chilled Prosseco on-tap, chilled Italian lager on-tap, and Prosecco-based cocktails. We can also provide craft ales, soft drinks and water. You can choose to hire the van and buy drinks for the whole event, hire the van and have us operate a pay bar, or have a combination of the two. If you are running a festival, fair, street food market or other public event, we will buy a pitch and run a pay bar. The pay bar will take both cash and contactless payment.
Can I choose different drinks to the ones you've listed?
Of course! Our aim is to make people happy. We do that mainly with fizz and Italian beers, but as long as your choice of drink comes in a keg that we can connect up, we'll serve it. Just ask, and we'll look into it.
Does Pinkerton's Prosecco van need power?
Yes. all we require is a standard 13 or 16 amp electrical hook-up. If there is no mains power, we will use a generator provided, or hire an LPG inverter type generator and pass on the cost with no markup.
How do you make sure that your fizz and lager is always cold?
Our Frizzante and lagers are pumped from kegs and 'flash-chilled' as they are poured, We store them in a cool dry place and wrap them in cool blankets if the temperature is likely to exceed 28 degrees.
Do you drive the van to venues?
No. Pinkerton's Prosecco van is taken to venues either on a trailer or in a transit van. When we arrive, it's either driven or pushed a short way to its serving site and set up in under 30 minutes .
How much space does Pinkerton's Prosecco Van take up?
Not a lot. Our cute Piaggio Apé is less than 3 metres long, under 1.5 metres wide, and with the serving doors up, just over 2.5 metres high. (Doors closed, the van is just 1.9 metres high.) Our staff stand alongside the van to pour and serve the drinks, so a little extra space for them would be welcome. If space is particularly limited, we can serve either Prosecco or lager from the rear taps only.
FRIZZANTE ON TAP
Our bubbles come by the keg direct from the Veneto region in Northern Italy, the home of Prosecco.
Although technically we have to call our fizz ‘Frizzante’ (because it's not in a bottle) it does contain 95% Glera grapes, just like bottled Prosecco. Some Frizzante is only 60% Glera, but for us it just doesn’t taste as good, and we'll only serve fizz that we love to drink!
Each keg fills 155 flutes with perfectly chilled bubbly, and each glass only takes 6 seconds to pour from the tap, so the fun keeps flowing!
ITALIAN BEER ON TAP
We serve our three favourites, chilled to perfection. Peroni, the modern classic; Moretti, for men who don't mind foam on their mo'; and Poretti, made with German know-how and Italian style. Each keg serves 55 pints.
We're also proud to offer award-winning and lovingly crafted ales from our friends at Farr Brew, just down the road from Pinkerton's HQ. It’s definitely made for beer cogniscenti. Each keg serves 36 pints.
Love a Prosecco cocktail? Us too. Whether we're perfecting our favourites or inventing new ones, we only have one rule for our cocktails: will we want another?
Do you fancy a fruity Bucks Fizz or Bellini? If you prefer a classic with a twist, then a Pinkerton's Royale or Bramble Fizz might be the right bubbly for you.
Growing garden fruits and hedgerow foraging has inspired us to create our own Nice Pear and Sloe Love cocktails. And if you want us to create a unique cocktail for your event, just ask!
