Celtic Whiskey Shop and Great Irish Beverages have teamed up to present Cocktail Tour, a brand new at home cocktail delivery service and online Zoom tutorial.
Each week, Oisin Davis of Great Irish Beverages will select two cocktails from around the world and show participating guests how to mix them on a live Zoom call. The two selected cocktails will be announced through social media each week and the Celtic Whiskey Shop team will send out all of the ingredients and equipment needed in advance to customers.
At a price of €42.50 including delivery, customers will receive a package with all of the required mixing equipment, a little gift and all the alcohol and ingredients needed to make 2 serves each of the 2 selected cocktails – 4 cocktails in total.
Oisin will begin the Zoom call at 8pm every Thursday and commence the live cocktail demonstration. All participants will be emailed the Zoom Meeting ID prior to the event so they can prepare their equipment and ingredients for the call. All paid guests will receive a link to the recorded demonstration afterwards so they can refer back to it in future.
Additional guests will join the Cocktail Tour each week, including master distillers, well known bartenders and chefs who can offer food pairings with the selected cocktails.
Week 1 of the Cocktail Tour will bring participants to Cuba and Havana Club rum, where the Classic Daiquiri will be explored, along with a Strawberry Daiquiri made with fresh Irish strawberries.
Week 2 of the Cocktail Tour will head to Mexico with Altos Tequila, mixing up a Tommy’s Margarita and a beautifully refreshing Paloma.
Commenting on the new Cocktail Tour, Oisin Davis said: “I’ve always felt that everybody should learn how to make cocktails at home. With Cocktail Tour, we’re giving guests not just the chance to enjoy some really tasty drinks but we’re showing them how they can mix them up again any time they want! In my experience, when people learn how to mix their own cocktails they have a deeper appreciation and understanding of drinks mixed by professionals back in bars.
“No other retail store in Ireland has a better selection of products than Celtic Whiskey Shop. They are the perfect partner for this project. Neither of us see this as something we only do during the lockdown. We want to run Cocktail Tour far beyond when we’re all back allowed out again!”
The first delivery of “Cuba with Havana Club Rum” is now available on the Celtic Whiskey Shop website. Each box costs €42.50 including delivery to anywhere on the island of Ireland. All orders must be in by 11am on the Tuesday of each week to arrive for the scheduled Zoom call on Thursday.
