Two Manx legends hook up to create the ‘Fox & Fyn’


Two of the best-known names in the Island’s hospitality scene, The Bushy’s Brewery and The Fynoderee Distillery, have joined forces to create a new venture – the ‘Fox & Fyn’.

Is it a pub? Is it a cocktail bar? Yes and yes, and what’s more it’s mobile!

‘The ‘Fox & Fyn’ is located in a brand-new Airstream trailer that has been customised to incorporate the distinctive branding, ales and spirits that Bushy’s and Fynoderee are renowned for.

The ‘Fox & Fyn’ promises to make a big impression wherever it is present around the Island. In addition to the gleaming aluminium body typical of an Airstream design, the Bushy’s & Fynoderee brand icons will be featured on the trailer. From the trailer’s impressive serving hatch, thirsty punters will be able to order Bushy’s familiar draught ales alongside a range of perfect serves and cocktails made from Fynoderee’s popular range of Manx spirits.

The big reveal of the ‘Fox & Fyn’ will take place at Castletown Square at the start of TT Practice Week, bank holiday Monday 27th May.  Weather permitting the ‘Fox & Fyn’ will be open in the Square throughout the TT Races period.

It will be ‘popping-up’ on regular occasions at the same location throughout the summer and will also become a familiar sight around the Island. The ‘Fox & Fyn’ will be in attendance at some of the Island’s major outdoor events and will also be available to hire for parties, corporate events and other private functions.

Tiffany Kerruish, Fynoderee co-founder said,

‘Team Fyn are brimming with excitement to work with Bushy’s in bringing something shiny and new to the Island’s hospitality scene!  We are very grateful to Castletown Commissioners for their active support and encouragement to pop-up throughout the summer in Castletown Square and we can’t wait to see everybody, both locals and visitors down south!’

The opening of the ‘Fox & Fyn’ comes at an exciting time for both firms. Bushy’s was recently granted planning approval to move its brewing operation to Castletown and will also be opening a new tap room and eatery.  The Fynoderee team are involved in this year’s RNLI200 celebrations through their ‘Coastal Collection of Spirits’, its fundraising partnership with the Institution. This includes the launch of its very special limited edition Refuge Manx Rum later this year following its ‘release’ from the iconic Tower of Refuge where it is currently resting.

Martin Brunnschweiler, Bushy’s founder said:

‘We’re very excited to introduce the ‘Fox & Fyn’ which will feature the very best of Bushy’s Brewery and Fynoderee’s offerings, served from a stylish 1950s-style Airstream trailer.  After its initial TT stint in Castletown Square the ‘Fox & Fyn’ will be available to visit events around the Island that would like to be able to provide the best craft beers and cocktails that our Island offers.’
