Join Appletons rum and Grain & Knot for a woodworking and cocktail masterclass.
- Benk + Bo, 4-6 Gravel Ln, London, E1 7AW
Crafted with Joy, returns this October with three new sessions featuring dedicated artisans, Blenheim Forge, Earl of East London and Grain & Knot, each chosen for the passion they possess for their craft. The series is all about enriching experiences; learning skills from inspiring creators while discovering the pleasure of Appleton Estate – the premium Jamaican rum – in a cocktailmaking masterclass.
Woodcarver Sophie Sellu makes objects that are both beautiful and practical, like the rums crafted at the Appleton Estate. Attend this workshop and you’ll make your own chopping board, ideal for preparing the perfect garnish when you’re recreating the Appleton Estate cocktail experience at home.
All of the sessions will be hosted by Joe St Clair Ford and the Rum Boss – Lawrence Gregory himself. Together you’ll enjoy a warm Appleton Estate welcome, followed by the craft workshop and a brief introduction to Jamaican rum, where you’ll learn about the rum’s refined qualities as a sipping spirit finishing up with a masterclass on how to make a delicious cocktail.
Tickets are £35 and include a welcome (or post-workshop) cocktail, rum cocktail masterclass, the craft workshop and
a Crafted with Joy take-home tasting kit.
