Banyan Bar & Kitchen opened in Newcastle’s city centre in March 2019, following a £1.5m investment. Since then, it has already established itself as a firm favourite amongst food-lovers and late-night revellers alike, offering an expansive menu coupled with an urban-party atmosphere.
As part of their exciting summer experience, Banyan has launched interactive masterclasses for those wanting to hone their mixology skills with cocktail and gin classes – and the latter is up for grabs in this week’s competition.
Led by Banyan’s in-house gin expert, the gin masterclass covers the history and heritage of the nation’s favourite drink in an exclusive one-to-one experience. During the 90-minute masterclass, you and five friends will learn industry secrets to crafting the perfect gin, discover the ideal accompaniment for different flavours and get hands-on making a selection of gin serves – including the chance to create your own personalised tipple.
The cocktail masterclasses operate in similar fashion, giving an introduction to Britain’s top cocktails including the Pornstar Martini, Mojito and Banyan’s very own Berry Collins. Led by a dedicated mixologist, participants will learn the skill behind the emerging trend of short and long drinks, with each class being tailored to the group’s favourite cocktails from the menu.
Both masterclasses are available for groups of six to 15 people and will be tailored for each party. The gin masterclass is £29.95 per person, whilst the cocktail masterclass starts at £25 per person. Masterclasses can be booked by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0191 814 7478.
