Want to go to a cocktail masterclass in London? Why not book a mixologist to mix up cocktails for you at HOME or an EVENT in this drinks experience like no other! Welcome to my cocktail masterclass! I want to take you through the history of cocktail making from where it all started. This experience will guide you through the four fundamental techniques of cocktail making; stirring, shaking, muddling, and building, whilst guiding you through the fun and exciting history of these classics. You will start the class by stirring a Martinez, which dates back to 1884 in O H Byrons the modern bartender guide, Then you shall move onto shaking contemporary sours derived from a 19th Century Crusta recipe, whichever way you like it; whisky, pisco, gin or vodka! Next, you will build a Tom Collins using the original Limmers hotel recipe from the mid 19th century. And to finish, you will be transported to a contemporary favourite, and build the perfect mojito. This class can be adapted to 100s of different cocktail recipes and can be uniquely tailored to your needs.

Hi, I'm David!
I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 6 years and have experience managing and developing some of London's most exciting cocktail bar venues and restaurants. Now, as a bar owner myself, I hone my service style to be experience led.
My introduction to the drink industry evolved from my time as General Manager at Merchant House in London, a bar boasting one of the largest spirit collections for rum, gin and whiskey in the UK. Here I have moulded my art of mixology and developed a vast knowledge of spirit history, production and tasting. I also took part in the judging for the Gin Masters back in 2018.
Additionally, over the last few years, I have begun to develop my private collection of rum and whiskey, housing over 400 bottles, many of which are no longer in production.
I offer a unique opportunity to bring spirit tasting and mixology into the heart of your own HOME or EVENT.
All experiences offered can be personalised for every client.
This experience will be at the guest's house or a preferable place in London.
