Across three, 3-hour sessions, guests will be able to create G&Ts using new release Artisan tonics and world-class gins.


Mikey Enright’s Cocktail Masterclass will provide a gin history lesson and demonstration of classic bartending techniques on 5 September, while Cape Byron Distillery co-founder Eddie Brooke will offer an immersive lesson on how various forest botanicals contribute to the flavour profile of craft gins, including a hands-on cocktail making tutorial, at Brookies Gin Masterclass, also on 5 September.

Schibello Coffee will serve up free coffees and an array of dishes from cod croquettes to beef sliders, arancini balls, butter chicken and gin-cured Atlantic salmon will be available too.
