How to Host a Virtual Christmas Party for the Office

in Distillery News November 17, 2020

Thanks to our Sip at Home cocktail classes, organising a digital celebration – while enjoying a gin education – has never been easier. Pull on your novelty knitwear and prepare to party…

Christmas might look a little different this year, but it’s still possible to come together with colleagues to celebrate one of our favourite festive traditions. We take a look at how – with some ginnovative thinking – you can organise a virtual Christmas party to remember.


This year, many of us, including the Sipsmith Swans, have embraced online office life – delivering everything from pitches to presentations via the wonders of the internet. But all work and no play is absolutely no way to mark the festive season.

That’s why we’ve designed a series of virtual cocktailing masterclasses that are guaranteed to deliver plenty of gin and good cheer.


Beaming our cocktail mastery and mixology skills into your co-workers’ kitchens and living rooms, we have developed a range of immersive classes, including:

Festive Cocktailing
Get into the Christmas spirit as you and your team stir and shake two delicious gin cocktails of your choice. Choose from a selection of eight festive cocktails such as the celebratory French 75 or a Sloe Gin Negroni that’s crafted with fireside sipping in mind.

The Art of Shaking
Equipped with a range of ingredients, guests can embrace their inner mixologists – and decide which of their colleagues is the most accomplished bartender – with a guided cocktail-making session featuring our award-winning London Dry Gin.

Chilli & Lime Masterclass
Add a splash of sunshine to your seasonal celebrations with this ginspirational session featuring our Limited Edition Chilli & Lime Gin. This class sees participants make a minty Mojito and a spicy Margarita.

Distillery Tour
Get up close to our beloved copper pot stills without leaving the house by inviting guests to embark on a virtual tour of the Sipsmith Distillery. Finishing up with a guided tasting of four of our most popular gins, it offers an unparalleled opportunity to ask our hosts your questions and expand your gin knowledge.


All of our virtual cocktail masterclass feature a Christmas twist and can be curated exclusively for you and your guests, which means organising an online office party couldn’t be simpler.

Everything that’s required to take part – from the gin to the garnishes – is delivered to your colleagues beforehand. Just don’t forget to tag us in your Christmas party cocktail creations on social media @sipsmith.
