What We Do

Team Building

The Shaker Cocktail Experience

Your experience starts with a reception drink, and a brief introduction to your instructors and fellow team members.


There are 3 sessions to the experience including;

1. The Drinks

Classic Cocktails or Smoothies

Shake up some of the most popular classic and contemporary concoctions from around the world including the Singapore Sling, Moscow Mule, British Bramble and many more.  Alternatively, for those who prefer not to drink you can create some superb tasting fresh fruit smoothies and learn how to cut eye catching garnishes with a selection of exotic fruits.

View Classic Cocktails

2. The Knowledge

Spirit Tasting & Layering

Tasting and experimenting of more exotic and rare spirits. Learn the densities of different spirits, liqueurs and juices and then create your own layered cocktail and shooter. You must have a steady hand to break the Shaker layering record.

3. The Fun

Flair – The art of moving and shaking

Learn the art of moving and shaking with our flair instructors; team games involve the stall challenge, and tandem flair.  Will your performance be The Coyote Ugly or just plain ugly.

The Competition

The best bartender from each group will fight it out to create the perfect cocktail using their new knowledge from new skills learnt.  First, second & third prizes are given to teams including a Cocktail guide for the most knowledgeable, a Cocktail tin for the most inventive & bottle opener for the beer drinkers!

Client Testimonials

"Again, everyone really enjoyed it; they got plenty of opportunity for tasting.  They had them throwing bottles around and allsorts so they loved it - it was competitive but in a very light-hearted way."
