The Cocktail Bar at The Lygon Arms is an ideal spot to try the intoxicating art of cocktail making under the watchful eye of our top bottle spinners. After an initial tutorial in blending, teams will compete to create the perfect tipple. Trickier than it sounds, each team must explain the inspiration behind their creation, the technical details of its blend, along with the alcoholic content.
Enjoy an exclusive Gin and Vodka tasting and demo with a Master Distiller from Chase single-estate distillery. The tasting experience will unlock some of the secrets and skills that go into creating their award-winning range of spirits. Your expert will talk you through everything from the traditional mashing, fermenting and distilling processes, to how
Chase finishes every bottle by hand. You’ll enjoy a tutored tasting of their range of drinks, and be presented with a souvenir bottle to try at home.
COOKERY DAY AT DAYLESFORD ORGANIC FARM
Daylesford is a community with food at its heart. Only 30 minutes from Broadway the 2350-acre organic farm set in the idyllic Cotswolds is a must for anyone who has a passion for real food. Since 1975, Daylesford has been one of the most pioneering farms in the UK, leading by example by farming, growing and producing according to sustainable organic principles. The farm’s Cookery School is located at its heart. Private classes offer an opportunity to create a menu based on the things you’d like to cook, or an area of particular interest such as artisan bread making, quick and simple suppers, desserts or even The Perfect Summer Barbecue. Alternatively, you can leave the Cookery School team to surprise you with seasonal delights from their farm and market garden.
The Daylesford Cookery School can host up to 48 guests and, as well as cookery tuition, can include a variety of activities including floristry classes, cheese and wine tasting or harvesting and foraging on the organic farm.
