When

  • 19:00 – 20:00 Wednesday 15th December

Join us for an outrageously festive virtual cocktail masterclass, brought to life by our wonderful Sipsmith hosts for those who can’t make it to one of our Distillery Tours in London. In SIP: Festive Classic Cocktails with a Twist you’ll craft two amazing cocktails with a festive twist you can recreate this Christmas; a French 75 and a Zesty Orange Espresso Martini.

To bring you this Christmassy experience, we have partnered up with The Cocktail Delivery Company to create the ultimate cocktail kit, delivered to you at home. One kit is designed for two people, and includes all the cocktail ingredients, garnishes and mixers to create two festive cocktails each.

One kit contains (suitable for 2 people):

  • Cocktail ingredients to create the Zesty Espresso Martini
  • Cocktail ingredients to create the French 75
  • Garnishes
  • Mixes

During the masterclasses you will learn the recipe and method to create your festive drinks, so that you can replicate these throughout the festive period and sip away merrily.

All you need at home to take part is:

  • A cocktail shaker (don’t worry if you don’t have one, a jam jar will do the same job!)
  • Ice (the more the merrier)
  • Two glasses to sip out of (top tip, pop them in the freezer an hour before your masterclass to make them nice and cold)

Please note: this experience is only available for delivery within the UK and recipients must be 18+

Happy Festive Sipping!

Includes

  • Introduction to the art of cocktailing
  • Create three of your own cocktails to sip on
  • A Sipsmith gift bag to take home

Our brand-new sipping experience welcomes you to London’s first copper pot distillery in almost two hundred years for an intimate and educational experience celebrating the art of cocktailing.

Come and join the Sipsmith mixology team to hand-craft your very own cocktails, specialise in techniques endorsed by our world-renowned Master Distiller, Jared Brown. Whilst sipping the ultimate G&T you will be given Sipsmith’s top tips to shake, stir and throw cocktails for full effect. You will then delve into a masterclass exploring our award-winning gins and discovering how they compliment some of the nations favourite cocktails before getting stuck into shaking up two of your very own cocktails. One of those will be created and named by you using our range of experimental gins, hand-crafted in our lab.

You won’t go home empty handed; along with a fountain of knowledge from your new mixology skills, you will fill your own gift bag with everything you need to re-create your own cocktail at home and use your learned skills to host a ‘ginspirational’ evening for your family and friends.

Please note that to reschedule and refund a booking a week’s notice must be given – exceptions due to COVID will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Sip your way through a delicious menu of cocktails, including the ‘Smoke and Roses’ with Sipsmith Gin, Lillet Rouge, gunpowder tincture and honey. Our blazer of the season, this fiery cocktail is set alight and poured flaming between vessels to add a touch of smoke and caramel to the serve.

With a menu of all new cocktails, inspired by historical recipes, set to inspire gin lovers, Ham Yard’s expert bar team have crafted a menu using our award-winning Sipsmith London Dry Gin, as well as our Zesty Orange Gin, Lemon Drizzle and Strawberry Smash. All served with a food pairing to match.
