The Gin Thing is the nation’s first mobile Horsebox Gin bar, dedicated to serving a large range of craft and artisan gins distilled and made in Scotland.


Sue and Cliff Hewett decided to make a career from offering bespoke gin experiences in 2017.  

Sue said: “We made a decision to do the things that make us happy. For us it is family, music and of course gin.

“Our extended family have lived and worked in Scotland for over 30 years, and we are now settled in Stirlingshire ourselves. We love the beauty and richness of the area and all that it offers.

“Music is at our core. We have a great local band and my husband is a boogie woogie piano player and piano teacher; music is just a huge part of our lives.

“Not forgetting Scottish gins, we’ve been advocates of the drink for longer than I care to remember!”

It took the couple six months to lovingly convert a two-horse trailer into a stunning and extremely cool gin bar.

Sue said: “Our work is about having fun, combining creativity, versatility and humour with our passion for gin and delivering a unique, high quality experience for our customers.

“Our goal is to promote small-scale artisan gin making, by sourcing locally made, independent, craft gins and produce wherever we can.

“The environment is also very important to us and we use a mix of reusable/recyclable products.

“Scotland, family, gin and fun…what more could any business want?”


The gin thing offers bespoke gin tastings for small parties, birthdays, family get togethers and weddings. It’s also a great way for local artisan and craft gin distillers to get their name out there!

Look out for the horsebox at festivals, agricultural and country shows, horse trials, rugby and cricket matches, food markets and street fairs across Scotland.
