Celtic Whiskey Shop and Great Irish Beverages are proud to present, Cocktail Tour.
Celtic Whiskey Shop and Great Irish Beverages are proud to present, Cocktail Tour. A brand new at home cocktail delivery service and online Zoom tutorial. Every week, Oisin Davis from Great Irish Beverages will pick two different cocktails from around the world and show guests how to mix them on a Zoom call while the Celtic Whiskey Shop team send out all the ingredients and equipment they need to make and enjoy them!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every week the selected cocktails are announced through social media. For €42.50 including delivery, the customer receives a package with all the mixing equipment, a little gift and all the alcohol and ingredients needed to make 2 serves of 2 different cocktails – 4 cocktails in total!
At 8pm every Thursday, Oisin will begin the Zoom call and commence the cocktail demonstration. Right before that starts, all the customers are emailed the Zoom Meeting ID so they can gain access and to remind them to get everything ready!
Using the very simple equipment sent out to everyone, Oisin will not just show them how to make the cocktails for now, but how they can make them again and again. Participants will be learning invaluable life skills whilst sipping on gorgeous drinks! All paid guests will receive a link to the recorded Zoom call afterwards in case they can’t make that time and if they ever need to look something up again in the future.
Additional guests will be joining in too every week. They will vary from being master distillers, well known bartenders and chefs who can offer food pairings with the cocktails.
WHAT KINDS OF COCKTAILS CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE?
Week 1 will bring us to Cuba and Havana Club rum where the Classic Daiquiri is explored as well as a Strawberry Daiquiri made with fresh Irish strawberries. Week 2 the tour heads to Mexico with Altos Tequila to mix up a Tommy’s Margarita and the beautifully refreshing Paloma.
Further down the road, seasonal gin punches will appear as well as rich and smooth Irish whiskey Old Fashioned.
As Oisin says, “I’ve always felt that everybody should learn how to make cocktails at home. With Cocktail Tour, we’re giving guests not just the chance to enjoy some really tasty drinks but we’re showing them how they can mix them up again any time they want! In my experience, when people learn how to mix their own cocktails they have a deeper appreciation and understanding of drinks mixed by professionals back in bars.
No other retail store in Ireland has a better selection of products than Celtic Whiskey Shop. They are the perfect partner for this project. Neither of us see this as something we only do during the lockdown. We want to run Cocktail Tour far beyond when we’re all back allowed out again!”
