Its a really fun, interactive activity that can instantly get the whole party to relax . Not all cocktails include alcohol, if some of your party do not drink they can cater for non-alcoholic cocktails for those guests so we make sure everyone is involved, helping them mix up some fantastic fresh fruit mocktails.
The classes usually last between 1.5 and 2.5 hours depending on the package you select and is available for groups of 6 to 14 people. Click here for additional information on Cocktail Making
Wine Tasting Evenings
The evening can be arranged to suit your requirements and you will be welcomed with a glass of fizz, but here is idea of a typical evening:
* The wine expert will then present six wines for tasting and discussion.
* The event would last about 1½ hours, and the wine expert will supply all the wines, tasting glasses as well as tasting notes.
* Maximum number of 15 people and the total cost would depend on the number of people and the selected wines.
