The Firsty Foal, Southampton

Party on Hampshire-style with a mobile bar, blind tasting events, cocktail kits and more from Jane Ray – aka The Firsty Foal

Weddings, girly get togethers, birthday bashes… oh how we’ve missed you. And after an enforced break, you’d better believe we’re ready to do them again. Stylishly, of course.

Enter Jane Ray, the local drinks afficionado and friendly face of the Firsty Foal, Hampshire’s mobile bar and events service. Jane and husband Mike are true kindred spirits, with a passion for gin that inspired them to share the love. Hired for celebrations around the county and beyond, the duo pitch up to serve-up delicious drinks for birthday belles and the happily just-hitched with their expertly-stocked mobile bar.

Perfect for small parties, celebrations and micro weddings, the Firsty Foal specialise in spirits and fizz, from Prosecco, Champagne and English Sparkling to Pimms and cocktails. Knowledgeable Jane (who’s qualified to Wine and Spirit Education Trust Level 2) also holds bespoke events like blind fizz tastings along with gin and rum tastings online and via Zoom. Sparkling or spirited conversation guaranteed…

Diversifying into gifting and at-home boxes, the Firsty Foal also deliver brilliant hampers of local drinks and goodies (from £34) complete with hand-written gift note. Cocktail and gin-mixing kits come with loads of great bits to get the birthday/hen party started while gin and rum-tasting boxes (£25) include four 50ml bottles of Hampshire spirts, mixers, garnish tasting notes and a tasting mat. Bottoms up!
