Cocktail Masterclasses

Wivenhoe House’s cocktail masterclasses can be a fantastic and fun experience to share with your friends, colleagues or family.

It is an opportunity to learn new skills and techniques from our experienced mixologists. You’ll learn how to create new cocktails, how to mix different ingredients, and how to present your drinks attractively. Discover new flavours with our masterclasses as they often provide access to a range of ingredients, some of which you may never have tried before. It’s also a chance to learn new skills and give you confidence when it comes to making cocktails. You’ll leave with a better understanding of what goes into making great cocktails and be more confident to try some of your own recipes at your next party.
