    Mobile business serving alcohol "incidentally"

    Mobile business serving alcohol "incidentally" 4th Sep 17 at 2:11 PM
    I've gone through the government advice on the website and I couldn't find anything appropriate to this situation, so maybe someone here can help.
    If I'm running a business, which involves walking with groups in different locations, where I wanted to carry alcohol, to allow people to sample along the way, would I need some kind of license to do so?
    They'd be paying for the walk, but the alcohol would be included, and would be different each time too.
    On one hand I'm thinking that the alcohol sampling is just me giving it away for free, however, then I guess I wouldn't be able to advertise that as part of what you're getting.
    Any ideas?

    You will therefore need a personal alcohol licence and if you are conducting the walks on a country estate (for example) you will need a premises licence. If you are walking on public land, I'm not certain if selling alcohol is legal.

    Also remember that, unless all you are doing is handling sealed miniatures or individual cans, you will be classed as food handling and will have to take appropriate measures during your walk, like making sure your hands and the glasses are clean.
    A kind word lasts a minute, a skelped erse is sair for a day.
