When it comes to grape, many of us are guilty of requesting the house bottle and knocking half of it back without really appreciating what’s inside. But for a number of us, it can be a complete minefield searching for the perfect blend of fermented grapes that will help us wind down after a long week at work. And if that’s you, we’ve got the perfect thing. Behold, for this Cocktail making and Tasting Experience in Ras Al Khaimah.
The Tasting Class, Dubai, brings you two amazing tasting experiences – one that will transport you straight to an Australian Vineyard, and the other takes you back through time to learn the history of juniper while making four classic cocktails
Juniper Tasting and Cocktail making workshop
Learn about the incredible history of Juniper, as you taste different Juniper styles and experience a cocktail making class. An unmissable experience for juniper lovers!
You’ll learn about Juniper’s birth, the Juniper craze, the invention of bathtub juniper all the way through to the craft Juniper revolution which we are in the midst of now.
We start with a neat Juniper tasting and talk about how it’s made.
Then break up a history lesson by making and drinking 3 different cocktails. We will make a Juniper & Tonic, Tom Collins and a Negroni, all while learning the stories behind these great drinks
Tickets are AED250 which include:
- Tasting of 3 different Junipers
- 4 x Juniper cocktails
- Cocktail making and interactive lesson by The Tasting Class
- A paired cheese & charcuterie board by Marina Muse
Date: Thursday 16th Sept 2021 (7.30 pm to 10.00 pm)
