What our customers have to say

Nothing but praise for our experience, a Private Tasting and cocktail class. From my first approach to the event they were very professional and informative. Great tasting session with the very knowledgeable and charming Jamie. Great value for money too, I would recommend their services to anyone and hope to have an excuse to book them again. He even converted a committed Vodka drinker, no mean feat! Lorraine Riggs
A massive thank you to Martin and the team for providing such an excellent bar for our wedding at Windmill Barn. Solid Liquids provided a really professional service from when we first approached them until the big day itself. Great drinks on the menu, including cocktails which we designed with Martin, fantastic for anyone looking for something a bit different from a usual wedding bar! Happy customers! Gwen Fisher
I attended the Glasgow Juniper Festival & it was absolutely fantastic - great range of gins to try (all included in the price), some great masterclasses and a terrific atmosphere - can't wait for the next one! Gary Lafferty
