Event Services

We do house calls!

You can engage myself and my team for a range of event formats ranging from intimate private or corporate experiences, to large scale corporate settings.

Here is a range of what I can offer, each experience being customised to you and your guests.

 

Martini Masterclasses

These intimate affairs  include a hands on experience for guests to craft their own Martini using a wide range of vodka’s, gins, vermouths and other special ingredients in a stylish and fun format.I induct the guests into the secrets of crafting a perfect Martini and they get hands on to make one of their own design under my guidance.

Guests enjoy a welcome drink, demonstration and q+a session about all aspects of the Martini, spirits and vermouths, and then get to create a cocktail of their own design. The events run for about an hour and a half or bit longer.

There are three packages to choose from:

  • Essentials-which features premium spirits ($85 per head)
  • Super Premium which includes some of the best spirits around including hard to get stock from around the world ($110 per head)
  • and Bespoke where I create an experience that is unique for your occasion (POA)

This includes spirits & garnishes and recipe cards to keep.

Additional costs such as glass hire, additional staff if required and  travel & accommodation and room hire etc isn’t included in the price per head naturally. These can be run in your own home or another premises.

Degustation Dinners and special events

  • Recent events have included a French Gin Degustation Dinner at Hotel Realm and part of the Canberra Modern Festivall

Corporate Events

  • Besides creating a bespoke cocktail for an event, I can also be part of an event including offering a range of cocktails, demonstrations, talks on spirits, and hands-on experience for guests as part of conference or team building event for 1 or 2 hours.

  • One of the more memorable events in 2017 was hosting a Martini soiree for over 90 members of the Australian Parliament and heads of the national cultural institutions who just loved by Martini creations, or presenting to a sold out session at the Canberra Centre for Autumn cocktails at home!
