Gin Cocktail Making Classes
Love your Gimlets and Tom Collins? Looking for an alternative to the humble G&T? Our dedicated private gin cocktail making class is for you.
You’ll learn all about what is often thought of as a quintessentially English spirit before exploring the evolution of the gin cocktail over time – from its close associations with Her Majesty’s Naval Service to its prominence in the classy gin saloons of the golden era in London and New York.
As with all our classes, our private gin cocktail class is fully interactive and every guest uses a variety of fine gins, fresh ingredients and specialist equipment to make their own cocktails in their own area behind one of our custom-built cocktail bars, with a maximum of 4-5 people per bar.
Our gin masterclasses last two hours and can be hosted at our Shoreditch home on Kingsland Road. We also have a large collection of mobile cocktail bars and equipment, allowing us to take our cocktail making classes to almost any venue in London or throughout the U.K.
We can host our private cocktail classes anywhere, at any time, on any day, from groups of 6 guests to any size you had in mind.
Length – Recommended class runs for two hours.
Reception Cocktail – Enjoy a complimentary gin cocktail upon entry to your cocktail making class in your private mixology masterclass lounge.
Introduction of Cocktail Class – Be introduced to your spirit of choice, before being guided through the background and concepts of mixology & cocktail making, learning some fundamental techniques.
Make Four Cocktails – Every guest will make (and drink) four gin-based cocktails behind their own fully stocked and equipped cocktail making bar, with no more than four guests to each cocktail bar station.
Cocktail Making Competition – Indulge in some healthy competition as each cocktail bar competes against the rest to make their own original gin-based cocktail using a range of liquors, spirits, syrups, fresh fruit, juices and specialised equipment available to them.
*Note, if there are any non-drinkers that wish to attend there are mocktail (non-alcoholic) options for each cocktail. No-one gets left out.
For private group bookings, guests can either come to us at our purpose-built studios at TT Liquor – our sister company on Shoreditch’s bustling Kingsland Road – or we can come to you, to any location across London & the UK.
We also enjoy a close relationship with a number of venues spanning the length and width of the capital and beyond, from Notting Hill, to Soho, Shoreditch, and beyond, so we’ll be sure to find you a suitable location. Our dedicated team will arrange all of this for you, and this service is normally included as standard in the cost of your private cocktail class.

PRIVATE CLASSES – Any Size, Any Time, Any Location, Any Day
We have been specialising in delivering top-quality cocktail making classes for over a decade, and in that time we have continuously improved and fine-tuned our experience so we can proudly call ourselves the best on the market.
Many bars offer their own versions of cocktail masterclasses, but they are often not fit for purpose. It is cramped, not fully set up to allow all your guests to continually practice their cocktail making skills for the whole duration of the class, and you are often learning in front of a public audience in busier bars. Not Ideal.
We host the majority of our masterclasses at TT Liquor, where we have 4 dedicated cocktail making class lounges that are fully set up when you arrive – freeing you up to make cocktails continuously for 2 hours without waiting for anyone to set anything up for you.
If you have a location in mind we also specialists in bring the complete set up with us. All the bars, with all the equipment, all the liquor, fresh products and ice. You simply let us know where you would like it to be and we set it all up in less than an hour and a half. We then offer the same experience you find at TT Liquor at any location you can think of.
Each bar also comes fully stocked, so that everyone on that bar (max 5 guests per bar) can make cocktails throughout their masterclass, with no interruption and no standing around watching. There are 3, 6, 8 and 16 bars set up in the 4 respective cocktail making lounges across our four-floor venue at TT Liquor and we have a totally of 42 of these bars so we can perform a masterclass for up to 210 guests, all still receiving the same experience and all still making cocktails together!
We also provide you with you own professional bartender, who will be your dedicated host for the session. After putting together a reception cocktail for you and your guests, they will then guide you through 4 different cocktails, letting all your guests in on the various tricks of the trade to make your drinks taste better than ever. The perfect skills for your guests to take away with them to show off to their friends at their next garden party or barbecue.
To end the session with a bang, each bar will be set loose to create their own cocktail, testing out their new skills and competing head-to-head with the other bar teams. Your expert host will then have a taste of each creation and crown the winner. There is nothing quite like a bit of healthy competition and 5 cocktails each to bring a group together!
Our expert bartenders are at the very top of their profession and are rigorously trained to deliver the best cocktail making experience possible for groups of up to 80. Their job is to be entertaining and engaging with all your guests, while simultaneously offering unparalleled insights on how to make your cocktails taste amazing. You may not get it right the first time around, but they will work attentively with each member of your group to hone their skills.
Our cocktail making classes have been enjoyed by budding mixologists all ages, for a wide variety of occasions. Everything we do is geared towards making it an event to remember for you and your group.
We are lucky enough to be able to perform these classes 7 days a week and at any time of the day you wish. Due to this flexibility, we teach over 20,000 guests all the skills they’ll need to get mixing every year.
