T&J installs GiG Pro cocktail dispenser at The Farmers, Ulverston

Gig Pro cocktails dispenser at Farmers

T&J has installed the GiG 15 Pro cocktail dispenser at The Farmers, Ulverston. The innovative Cocktails Machine – which is new to the UK – makes perfect cocktails in seconds, saving bar staff invaluable time during busy service periods.

T&J is the sole UK installer of the GiG 15 Pro Cocktails Machine and works alongside manufacturers, Tech Life. The GiG Pro 15 is designed to resolve everyday issues in providing an extensive cocktail menu to your customers with the guarantee of consistency and efficiency every time. 

The Farmers Arms is an award-winning pub, wine bar and restaurant located in the heart of the market and festival town of Ulverston. The pub is a family-run free house. Owners, the Chattaways, have been successfully trading in Ulverston for over 35 years. They are the 5th generation of their family to own pubs and free houses, and have been at The Farmers for over 20 years. 

Farmers new bar area

Before the installation, The Farmers had a very limited ‘classic’ cocktail menu, which wasn’t promoted – due to a lack of cocktail-trained staff, and the serving space required on the bar. With the GiG 15 Pro Cocktails Machine in place, The Farmers is able to offer a much broader selection of, roughly 30, cocktails.

Rebecca Chattaway, Area Manager at The Farmers, Ulverston, said: “Demand for cocktails is at an all-time high, but it’s not always easy, efficient or cost-effective to deliver a cocktail menu that hits the spot, even if training is invested in.

“We open up early, and lunchtime is a very important part of our trading day. However, our skilled bar staff begin their shifts after the lunchtime service. Our guests were ordering cocktails, but achieving consistency in quality was very difficult. We wanted to deliver the perfect cocktail, no matter who was serving – from a new trainee to the bar manager.

“We want to serve products that deliver on quality – for cocktails that means getting the right balance of good ingredients. The GiG 15 Pro is as precise as you can get it in measures, and our staff can still put on the pageantry of cocktail shaking.

“The GiG Pro’s App is great for keeping track of how many cocktails we sell, what cocktails are selling best and what our stock situation is. That makes managing the cocktail menu and offerings much easier.

“T&J’s installation of the cocktail dispenser was quick and sensitive to our renovation – scheduling of the works was perfect for our timetables and only took two or three hours. The installation looks great and the cocktails have proven very popular, generating a new revenue stream for the business.”

Graham Connolly, Managing Director for Cocktails Machine, said: “We’re getting great feedback on the GiG 15 Pro in the UK, which echoes the sentiments of the feedback we’ve had from all over Europe. We’re currently in talks with a number of the country’s biggest nightclubs, bars and hotel chains, which is very promising.”

T&J would encourage venues within the food and drink sector that are interested in cocktails as a revenue stream, but are currently unable to feasibly operate a quality cocktail menu, to get in touch. 

GiG 15 Pro may well be the solution to adding cocktails to your beverage offering, or in helping you increase the consistency, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your current cocktail menu.
