About the Course

Our Wildcrafted Cocktail Courses are designed to get you outdoors and thinking outside the box. The Wildcrafted course is an action packed day filled with foraging, preparation of ingredients, creating cordials and syrups, making and designing a recipe for a cocktail and most importantly tasting your creations.

All your ingredients will be sustainably foraged from around the course venue. Depending on the season we will see what nature has to offer. You are more than welcome to bring anything from your garden to include in your cocktail but we will provide fresh fruit and veg for you to use.

Our cocktail workshops have different seasonal themes, please get in touch to find out what type of workshop runs on which date.

Our courses are mainly held outside so we recommend wearing appropriate clothing and footwear. Our foraging walks are not particularly strenuous or challenging. Please let us know of any disabilities and we will make sure to accommodate you.

All you need to bring with you is a packed lunch and your creative mind. All hot drinks are provided.
