Cocktail Classes

Enjoy the experience of a Gulch Distillers signature cocktail class, designed to enhance the skills of the novice or seasoned home barkeeper. Learn some tips, techniques, and recipes to easily mix beautiful cocktails in your home bar. On the second-to-last Saturday of every month we lead a FREE, one-hour class on individual mixology topics, at high noon (unless noted otherwise). We will occasionally fill a second class time at 1:00, so make sure to read your confirmation email after registering.

While the education is free, cocktails are available for purchase.

Gulch Distillers Winter Cocktail Class Series
May 19 – Cola Bar

This class will focus on the ubiquitous cocktail mixer: different style of cola, it’s use in cocktails, and how to make your own.

June 23 – Shrubs

What are shrubs and how are they used in cocktails? Wether you’re a novice or an aficionado of shrubs you can dive in to this interesting subject with us. Learn what makes a good cocktail shrub, what we use in our cocktail program and why, other ways to enjoy shrubs, and learn how to make your own at home!

July 21 – Amaro Like There’s No Tomorrow

Explore the rich, bitter world of amari. We will sample a variety of house-made bitter liqueurs, discuss the history and tradition of these herbal digestifs, and–like most of our classes–how to make your own signature amaro.

August 18 – Shaken vs. Stirred

We revisit a popular class subject with this demonstration of basic cocktail techniques. When do you shake and when do you stir? When do you build a cocktail in the glass? Learn the whys and hows and take home a few fail-safe recipes.
