Cocktail Masterclasses

One should never mix one's drinks... except at our Cocktail Masterclasses.

Join us to discover the very finest creative concoctions with tastings, demonstrations, and the chance to recreate your favourites.

Starting the session with a welcome cocktail on arrival, followed by a spirit tasting and detailed exploration of the best base components for a cocktail. Then, learn how to make and shake three signature cocktails (with tastings, of course) before trying your hand at mixing up your own. Each month is different, focused around a specific theme and ingredient, so you can visit more than once. In fact, you can visit every month should you so wish, we’re not stopping you.

So kick-start your weekend with Friday and Saturday classes at The Bar and join us after the class for a three course meal in the Restaurant.

THEMES

January: DARE TO DREAM
Get inspired with our January masterclass and discover why modern classics like the Cosmopolitan, Bramble and Old Fashioned have stood the test of time.

February: HIS ‘N’ HERS
Matching his ‘n’ hers cocktails are the order of the day, with each cocktails paired to a spouse, its other (better?) half. From French and Dry Martinis; to the sublime Bourbon sour and its sweeter, softer companion, the Amaretto sour; to the legendary Kamikaze and its Cosmopolitan partner – we sample and discuss the merits and virtues of each.

March: BEAUTIFUL COCKTAILS
Join us to learn how the most beautiful cocktails are crafted, from Bellinis to Martinis, the importance of garnishing and presentation is much more than just adding a wedge of lime.
