I am a commercial kitchen living harmoniously with a distillery, bar and spirit school under a big roof in the centre of the great city of Bristol.

I am looking for:

Entrepreneurial, independent, culinary spirits to cook up a storm for the good folk of Bristol and all those that visit her.

I am a platform for the best street food traders, foodies and chefs in Bristol and the South West to cook quality, locally-sourced and honest food.

Be your own boss! Design your own menu and serve it here.

The thing I wish people would notice more about me:

The opportunity. I have no ulterior motives. Yes I am cheap, but it costs a lot of money to look this cheap.

More about me:

I am a fully functional commercial kitchen looking for “pop-ups and residencies” in the new Bristol and Bath Rum Distillery. I am very flexible.

The Distillery is multifaceted.

· Distillery – Production of rum in a commercial 500L rum still. Production of gin in a 200L gin still. Specific room for aging own rum in casks also.

· Bar – 3 separate bars separated onto 3 floors.

· Spirit School –3 multi-functional rooms on own floor. The rooms host a range of experiences and are available for private and corporate hire. 40+ mini stills for public use in distilling both rum and gin.

Potential options for suitors:

Street food kitchen – One off pop-ups, longer term residencies, daily, weekly, monthly…

Corporate/private party-catering – menus for groups hiring private space in the Distillery.

Christmas – Create a Christmas menu and serve it at The Distillery? It’s just around the corner.

Other stuff – If it involves serving food to the general public, there is a conversation at least.
