Secret Cocktail Club - Meet Me in Havana - ENCORE SESSION

Following on from last year's success, we're back with the Secret Cocktail Club pop up! This time however, we'll be exploring the application of a chosen spirit in one cocktail to see if it changes the flavour of the drink. For this session, we're looking at...RUM!

Havana Club is one of the world's most recognisable rum brands but did you know there's two different Havana Clubs in the world? One made by drinks giant Bacardi in Puerto Rico (and sold in the US) and the other made by equally big drinks company Pernod Ricard in Cuba (and sold elsewhere in the world, including Australia). We'll be cracking open some US-only Havana Clubs and pitting it against the other Havana Club. We'll go through the history of the feud between the two HC and taste each before we put them to the test in the most classic of rum cocktails...the Daiquiri.

Taking place in a private venue in Sydney (which is next to a major train station 10 minutes out of the Sydney CBD), this will be the first of our series that promote a more intimate dinner party style gathering where you will get to interact with both host and guests alike. There'll be jazz, there'll be good conversation and above all, there'll be some cracking good drinks. Seats at the table are limited to 6-8 people and the session will last for approximately 2 hours. The following will be served at the table:

  1. Welcome drink
  2. Guided tasting of 4 different rums 
  3. Tasting flight of 4 Daiquiri cocktails, made with each of the rum on taste
  4. Grazing platter

Secret Cocktail Club - Gin Beez-Ness

Following on from last year's success, we're back with the Secret Cocktail Club pop up! This time however, we'll be exploring the application of a chosen spirit in one cocktail to see if it changes the flavour of the drink.

To coincide with World Gin Day on 9 June 2018, we're starting the party early and taking a tour of 4 different world gins before putting it to the test in the classic Bees Knees cocktail, which traditionally calls for gin, lemon juice and honey. You'll get to taste each of the gins neat as well as the cocktails side by side to determine for yourself whether your choice of gin makes a difference to the final drink.

The following will be served at the table:

  1. Welcome drink
  2. Guided tasting of 4 gins that are different in profiles
  3. Tasting flight of 4 Bees Knees cocktails, made with each of the gin on taste
  4. Grazing platter

Secret Cocktail Club - Meet Me in Manhattan

Following on from last year's success, we're back with the Secret Cocktail Club pop up! This time however, we'll be exploring the application of a chosen spirit in one cocktail to see if it changes the flavour of the drink. To coincide with World Whisk(e)y Day, we're going to be taking a trip to New York (figuratively speaking) and exploring the Manhattan cocktail. Traditionally made with rye whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters, we'll be tasting 4 rye whiskies then putting each to the test in the spirit-forward cocktail, which you'll get to taste side by side in order to determine for yourself whether your choice of whiskey makes a difference to the final drink.

SCC pop up for World Cocktail Day

Secret Cocktail Club pop up for World Cocktail Day

For cocktail geeks across the world, 13 May is World Cocktail Day because reportedly on this day in 1806, the first known definition of the word cocktail appeared in the column of an American newspaper. Like most cocktail lore, there's debate over whether this is the first mention of the word but whatever the story, this is a day to celebrate the cocktail!

To mark the occasion in 2017, Sydney Cocktail Club will transform into the elusively exclusive Secret Cocktail Club for one night only. Taking place at a secret location, this private party features a menu swap with real-life Brooklyn speakeasy, Covert Cocktail Club. (CCC), which itself operates out of the home of an amateur drinks enthusiast. Our World Cocktail Day pop-up cocktail menu features twists on classic drinks, which may or may not be topped up with a jigger or two of genuine NYC hooch that has been bootlegged to Sydney just for the occasion. And back in Brooklyn? We’ve had a hand in coming up with some Aussie twisted drinks for CCC to serve their guests, thanks to some Australian-made spirits that have sneakily winged their way to the USA.

Speakeasies being speakeasies, you'd be hard pressed to find much on the world wide web about these secret clubs but you can read a little on our friends at CCC here (and get an idea of what to expect in Sydney)

This 2.5-hour seated session is a unique way to share some delectable drinks with like-minded lovers of cocktails, and try something new thanks to our friends at CCC. Only 6 seats are available for this one off event so we’re taking expressions of interest via a ballot until 28 April 2017 with invitations will be sent to the lucky few on 1 May 2017. 

Please read the following before submitting your details:
  1. The ballot will be open until 11.59 pm on 28 April 2017
  2. Once the ballot is closed, we will choose three people at random to extend an invitation to attend. Each of the three guests will each be able to attend with a plus one. 
  3. Successful entrants will be notified via email and text on 1 May 2017 and will have 24 hours to accept the invitation. If the invitation is not accepted, we will choose another name at random from the list.
  4. Every person attending will be asked to contribute $50 towards the evening. Links will be sent to those successful with details on how they can make this contribution.
  5. Guests will be served an aperitif, 2 cocktails and a digestif with light snacks over the course of the session.
  6. If extended an invitation, you must be available to attend in Sydney between 6 pm and 8.30 pm on Saturday 13 May 2017. Needless to say, you will need to be over 18 to attend.
  7. The meet up point will be within 5 km of the Sydney central district. Guests will be sent a text on the day of the party with details of where to meet.
  8. By submitting your details, you also agree to receiving news and updates from Sydney Cocktail Club. You can unsubscribe at any time using the links provided.
