When we thought we had hit the peak of the mobile trucks serving food, now Mulebox brings this innovative concept with their sustainable drink truck supporting social entrepreneurs, fair trading and eco-friendly habits. Based in London, they travel to events all over the UK, for your wedding, your parties, corporates or open-air events! They work alongside with the clients to create the perfect signature menu and customise the social event to every single detail. Ready to sip all the goodness?
Mulebox is this sustainable drink truck that goes from one event to another, with the aim of making people happy in every sip. The philosophy behind this mobile bar is that sharing makes us grow and prosper; did you realised we do it all the time? We share stories and fortune with our beloved ones, and that usually goes well with a drink! CHEERS TO THAT!
The founder, Katie, had the clear aim to push and promote the agenda of social enterprise, fair trading and sustainability by picking only events and brands with a purpose.
Their first bar is a converted horsebox, and because the mule is the animal that would traditionally transport such a vehicle, and is also a reference name for great cocktails such as the “Moscow mule”, they created their brand identity in the shortest and most punchy way possible!
Each time you hire Mulebox you will buy social, as all the beverages they have on board belong to businesses that inspire positive social change by donating or re-investing 50% or more of their profits into charities and initiatives. These are also fair trade, where you make sure the supply chain gets a fair deal in order to create prosperity and future growth in their communities. Last but, of course, not least, you contribute to a more sustainable planet: no unnecessary waste is served, but compostable or reusable cups and containers instead… AND Mulebox also supports organic farming!!
Here are some of the brands that are served at Mulebox:
Ginerosity – This Gin brand donate their profits to a charity called ‘Challenges Worldwide’ who help disadvantaged young adults to apply to International Citizenship schemes.
FAIR drinks range – The first range of completely fair trade spirits.
Fatty’s Organic Gin – A completely organic Gin from Dulwich.
Brewgooder – Donate all of their profits to helping provide access to clean water for those in need.
Toast Brewery – Use up surplus bread in their brewing process that would have otherwise gone to waste.
Karma Cola – A Fair trade brand that works with cola nut farmers in Sierra Leone to ensure that the whole production process is fair and sustainable.
“We want to promote the agenda for social responsibility within the drinks industry and so collaborating with brands is a big part of this – we would love to see more and more brands emerging who have social-purpose at their heart.” Katie Agar, Founder Mulebox
The kind of cocktails they specialise in are whisky and gin, representing some fantastic independent distilleries. They love to encourage folks to try something new by offering playful garnishes and innovative mixers, whilst staying true to the individual qualities and ingredients in each spirit.
You will also access a range of fantastic wines, beers, alongside with some great non-alcoholic and low-alcohol options.
The drinks are also served in fully compostable PLA tumblers, as their aim is to contribute zero waste to landfill.
