The cocktail resurgence is in full swing. Interest in quality spirits and classic cocktails has been growing exponentially in the last few years, yet it is very hard to learn more and be completely submerged in this trend. Much of the information online is misleading and often incorrect. Many cocktail bars get too busy for questions, or–let’s be honest–be a little tight-lipped when it comes to passing down their knowledge. This is where Wisdom's cocktail classes come into play.
A veteran industry expert focuses their time and energy on you and your questions during the hour and a half long class. As D.C.’s first dedicated cocktail bar and the first to offer educational class, we have taught thousands of customers of all backgrounds. We are confident our classes are the best!
Each private class is at the bar and can be catered to your preference. Most popular is the general class where an instructor walks the students through booze basics, starting with when and how liquor came into existence. Complicated processes like fermentation and distillation are presented in a fun and accessible manner. Learn the difference between making tequila and gin, among other basic facts. The instructor then moves onto the amazing secrets of vermouth, revealing how versatile the spirit is through generous samples. Next comes everything you wanted to know about whiskey through a deconstruction, the perfect segue to a classic Manhattan cocktail. Students learn about bitters, as well. To finish the general class, the instructor will break down the most iconic and least understood cocktail, the Martini.
Be prepared to change your drinking life forever!
