This Masterclass is a unique opportunity to gain an insight into the art of making the perfect cocktail paired with Artisan Cheese. Yes, cheese and cocktails!
Mike is our guest Mixologist who has been practising his Art since 2007. From Classics to Contemporaries, Mike will take you through time to discover the classic cocktail, the latest beverage and introduce you to the emerging distillers of fine spirits. With a focus on flavourings, colours and tastes. Yes, taste. As this masterclass includes 4 fabulous gin based cocktails mixed and muddled, by Mike, in front of you.
Nick, our Affineur, will take you through the process of cheese production using his 30 years of experience as both a Judge of Cheese and as a Cheese Monger. Listen to anecdotes and stories about the Artisans who lovingly make their cheese. Gain an insight into their world of grass, terroir, milk, bacteria, storage and, most of all, get to taste 4 fabulous cheeses that represent the best of Artisan Cheese.
Together they will have chosen cheeses that will compliment the Gin Cocktails your Mixologist has especially selected for the Event. This is an opportunity for any spirit and cheese lover to immerse themselves in their world. A fun filled evening with two experts who love their work.
The experience starts with a viewing of the cheese maturation room whilst enjoying a fizz cocktail. We have an amazing selection of cheeses and the tasting allows you to see the large truckles of cheese up close. Nick will take you through the maturation process, then you will move to our tasting room where the experience will continue.
That experience will include a selection of Artisan cheeses including some that are unique and not available for sale in our shop yet. Biscuits will be served, as will, a selection of cocktails to bring out the best in the cheese.
This experience starts at 7pm and runs for approximately 150 minutes.
As we have to order and mature the cheeses, for your Hamper, for up to a week before they are cut, we must have a cut off date for all Christmas Orders.
We will take orders for up to 17:30 on the 15th December.
Please be aware that orders after the 15th December may be accepted as long as you are aware that we may have to substitute a similar product, that is, if your first choice is not available.
Orders placed after the 15th December, cannot be changed once the cheese has been cut or the hamper made up. We may take orders after that date but in person or over the phone as the website will be closed to all Hamper orders. We will always try our very best to give you your choices and apologise in advance if we have not achieved that.
To ensure your cheeses arrive in perfect condition for Christmas, we will deliver up to the 23rd December 2020. We may send the hamper earlier if the weather is bad or to give the courier more time to make that Christmas delivery. Please make sure your order is with us by 17:30 on the 15th December to ensure your selection of Cheeses. Orders may be accepted after that date but could result in substitutions due to Artisan Cheese being a finite product.
We may take orders after 17:30 on the 15th December but in person or over the phone only as the web site will be closed to all Hamper orders.
Hamper orders placed in person or over the phone before 17:30 on the 15th December is £15.00
