What do you get when you cross gin and Campari together? The answer isn't a 2/3 negroni cocktail but a revolutionary spirit that doesn't fit into any of the conventional categories. On 11 January 2018, we're awfully chuffed to have Alex Kammerling, founder of game changing brand Kamm & Sons to come along all the way from the UK to tell you his story and take you through a tasting of this British aperitif. This is his only consumer event in Sydney and we're keeping numbers small so you have a chance to drink with Alex and hear straight from the horse's mouth what it takes to start a booze brand from scratch and in an unknown category as well. If you like gin or bittersweet spirits, this one is for you.

6.30 pm arrival and welcome drinks for a 7 pm start. Each ticket scores you 2 drinks, nibbles, tasting of six different aperitif as well as an up close and personal encounter with one of the most personable game changers in the booze industry.

Location at a Sydney venue disclosed to ticket holders (there may or may not be a pineapple to guide your way but we can say it's close to public transport and has amazing views of the Harbour Bridge)

PS: We now have ZipPay (Buy Now Pay Later) available! Option will show up in the payment options once you checkout.

DIY Liqueurs

DIY Liqueurs

For our first event for 2017 we will be exploring the underrated world of liqueurs and how you can DO IT YOURSELF! If you ever thought making liqueur was a simple case of bunging in some fruit and sugar into spirit...well it is! But did you know there's another infusion method? Or maybe you've heard of an ultrasonicator? Intrigued?

Then come join us with cocktail maestro Flynn McLennan of the Long Goodbye bar on Stanley Street as we unveil the mystery behind the methods, show you the difference between fruit, nut and herb based liqueurs and taste some home made liqueurs side by side with their commercial counterparts. We'll even show you a secret fourth method for making liquids that will be explosive!

For $49 cocktail clams plus booking fee you get a cocktail, the tasting plus some nibbles..not to mention the chance to learn how to DIY liqueur as well as tips on how to incorporate them into cocktails at home. That's pretty good value if we can say so ourselves. Due to the nature of the session, we can only take so many in so we hope you'll be one of the few to join us!

Blowing Hot & Cold...with Coffee Cocktails

Australia is a nation obsessed with coffee. And why not? It's the thing that fuels us morning, noon and night, be it in that first morning cup or the ubiquitous espresso martini. But do you know your cold press from your cold brew? Or one coffee liqueur from another? And want to know how to use coffee in cocktails? Wonder no more because we've teamed up with cocktail bar Della Hyde and Australia's first cold press coffee liqueur Mr Black Spirits to go back to (black) basics.

In this session, we'll show you how to work with coffee in both hot and cold cocktails (which you'll get an opportunity to taste) and take you through a tasting flight of coffee liqueurs. The legends at Della Hyde are putting on some special hot and cold coffee cocktails that evening, and you get to vote for your favourite - the crowd winning cocktail will then get featured on the Mr Black website! 

Get your tickets here and we'll see you there to drink, chat and discover!

So come explore the world of coffee in cocktails and spirits with us, Della Hyde and Mr Black Spirits. Tickets are $45 a head and includes 2 different cocktails, a tasting flight and light food...oh, and the chance to have a say on what coffee cocktail from the evening will get featured on the Mr Black website.

Cutting to the Chase - an evening with William Chase of Chase Distillery

We've long loved the range of Chase spirits, from its classic potato vodka through to its more-ish line of liqueurs and gins. Now, William Chase, the man behind the distillery, is visiting Australia and this is your chance to get up close and personal with the founder of UK's first (and only) farm to bottle distillery. William has had a varied career, from potato farmer to founding the boutique crisps label Tyrrells and now distillery owner/operator. 

We're excited to be hosting this session where we'll be getting together over some great drinks and run through a tasting of some of Chase's most popular range. Held at small bar Since I Left You, your ticket of $20 a head (plus booking fee) gets you 2 drinks, an informal tasting and the chance to chew the fat with the Chase behind Chase Spirits.

This is William Chase's only consumer event in Sydney. Spaces are limited to preserve the intimate nature of the gathering and to ensure attendees have ample opportunity to engage with the man himself. So don't dally! Get your tickets here because what else would you be doing on a Monday anyway?
