Workshops last approximately 1.5 hours and are usually held early in the week.

Educating and supporting the trade is at the heart of what we do.

Plus, taste our sustainable British vodka, Respirited, awarded “Most Innovative Spirit 2022”.

On completing the workshop, you will receive a certificate and a bottle of our award-winning London Dry (20cl).

Our workshops take place at:
