With the 2020 lockdown leaving us little bar work to do other than re-buffing the mobile bar tops, the team decided to grab the toolbox and turn a corner of the warehouse into a fully functioning cocktail bar, complete with a massive range of spirits and bar tools in order to whip up faithful Old Fashioneds and deathly Zombies for your viewing pleasure.
Hand-made Cocktails, made by YOUR hands.SHOP NOW
The Bar From Afar has been created for our new cocktail classes where you take part from the comfort of your home, office, or holiday cottage. In line with more and more people working from home, we understand that our traditional means of social interaction are going to be missed; the water cooler, the work canteen, and especially the Friday night drinks in the Dog & Duck.
We love the lengths that our cocktail fans go to when trying to recreate their favourite drinks at home, including buying all the spirits under the sun. The downside to this though, is how much this can sometimes cost, and how much room it all takes (although, a well-stocked spirits cabinet is always impressive). To save you money, space, and of course time, we post out your spirits, liqueurs, syrups and purees already measured out, so you can focus on just enjoying the experience, and the taste of your drinks.
Choose your date, choose your drinks, choose your friends, and we’ll send a box to each of you with all the ingredients you need to learn 3 cocktails each. You’ll need to supply some glassware and ice, as well as some simple kitchen equipment (or you can buy an incredible cocktail kit).
On the day, once you’ve logged into zoom on your device, the bartender will join you from The Bar From Afar ready to teach you not only how to make the drinks, but a short history on each of these too.
£40 per person. This covers your ingredients for three cocktails each, postage & packing, and a one hour class with your bartender. An increase to 4 drinks each and a 1hr15 session costs just £45pp. You can increase the number of drinks we mix, or the length of the class. Just let us know when booking and we can advise on any additional costs.
If you prefer to buy your own ingredients, we’ll give you a shopping list and the class will cost just £180 for up to 25 people.
Each box we send out contains a range of premium spirits, measured ingredients and garnishes. For July only, we’re including a cobbler shaker, completely free! Inside, you will also find information of your workshop time and date, along with Zoom login information.
You’ll need to supply some glassware, ice, and a few bits of kitchen equipment, such as a chopping board, knife, tea-towel, and teaspoon. It’s really helpful to have your own cocktail shaker, although a jam jar, protein shaker, or even a tippee cup will work!
