Got an interest in the fine art of mixology? Why not book a cocktail-mixing masterclass with our award-winning bar-staff in the walnut panelled environs of The American Bar. They'll be happy to take you, your team, or your loved ones through the basics of cocktails and onto the finer points of perfect mixology.
Pictured above is former Voodoo Rooms manager Shervene Shahbazkhani, who won The Scottish Final of The 42 Below Cocktail World Cup, and represented Scotland at the final in New Zealand. The awards didn't end when Shervene left: Gordon Purnell has just won the Edinburgh heat of the Maker's Mark incentive competition and will represent Edinburgh in London on the 6th October in the UK finals.
Customer Feedback on Mixology Masterclasses:
I just wanted to write in to let you know that the session far exceeded my wildest expectations. As well as enjoying the surroundings (even the band soundcheck) & the privacy, I found both Adam & Greg to be extremely knowledgeable, witty, patient & majorly interesting. I hope they haven't had a nervous breakdown as a result of our shrieking & constant questioning.
I will be (and have been) recommending the Masterclass to anyone who'll listen (I'm just sorry we've already made arrangements for Llara's Hen weekend) as it was FANTABULOUS!
Thanks again to you and the guys for a fantastic evening.
I just wanted to drop you a wee email (no I didn’t have so many cocktails that I forgot I said I would) to say thanks for the cocktail making master class. The boys were fantastic - really skilled, knowledgeable and patient and great at handling the group of girls! We all had an awesome time, including the hen (phew!) and I’d thoroughly recommend the master class to anyone looking for something similar. Having watched another class elsewhere (yeah, I’m a bit nosey), I liked that we had our own private bar instead of having folk having their tea and gawping and the wee goodie bag was a sweet touch too, really making it stand out compared to similar things on the market which seem a bit naff! A bit hen, ken!?
Now all I need is an excuse to do it again……
Another passion is tequila - our back bar is groaning under the weight of over 60 different bottles of tequila - a spirit which is gaining credibility and boasts a huge range of widely differing flavours - There is a lot more to tequia than a simple Jose Cuervo slammer, and we'll be happy to arrange a tasting session to guide you through the wonderful world of tequila.
We stock an equally large array of rums, which are gaining in popularity in the home of whisky. We'll be happy to arrange a private tasting session with one of our in-house rum experts to guide you through this delicious spirit world.
We'll be happy to arrange any of these mixology masterclass or tasting sessions and groups can be accomodated of any size. They make a perfect gift for a loved one, and they are a popular team-building exercise. Why not arrange a meal or some appropriate canapes, courtesy of the Devil's Kitchen, or tie in a training session with some of scheduled entertainment, making it truly a night to remember.
