We’ll start with a welcome sample of a classic Prohibition-era cocktail before you shake or stir your own full-sized drink. We’ll then take you on a journey through the time period sampling another two drinks while we explore what caused such a monumental shift in legislature, how drinkers skirted the laws, and the lasting legacy of Prohibition in modern cocktail culture, from the drinks we remember to the rise of speakeasy style bars. We’ll then finish by shaking or stirring a final full sized cocktail for you to enjoy.
During the 1.5-2 hour session you’ll receive five drinks:
- 2 full sized cocktails
- 3 1/2 sized cocktail samples
Prohibition was known for its gin, rum and whiskey drinks, so expect a combination of the above. If you have any requests we’d be happy to cater for them if we know about them in advance.
