Cocktail Workshop – 14th October
October 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
£45.00 – £164.16
Brush up your cocktail skills ahead of the autumn season of entertaining!
We are partnering with local expert Myles Cunliffe from Mixology School in Brighton to bring you a fun evening of cocktail wizardry using seasonal and local ingredients, including Wiston’s delicious own gin and vodka. You will learn the art of balancing a cocktail as well as exploring a myriad different garnishes, techniques and flavours. Myles will guide you through three distinct drinks each with their own production techniques and styles. You will have the opportunity to explore different garnishes with some special items sourced from the around Wiston Estate for the Martini, the classic Negroni with its simplicity and elegance and finally we will explore seasonality and of course get the opportunity to use some fantastic Wiston Sparkling wine in our cocktails.
There are two ticket prices – £45 for just the masterclass, or £95 for the masterclass and a takeaway gift of a tin of Wiston Gin and Wiston Vodka (worth £70!).
If you would like to dine at Chalk following the masterclass we recommend booking in advance for tables after 7.30pm.

Really enjoyable wine tour and tasting as part of a few days in the area. Our guide was an excellent guide and really brought the whole process to life when explaining what Wiston do and how they produce their excellent wines. We sampled a number of different styles and got to understand what makes each unique. It also seems a real family affair and labour of love for all involved. I would highly recommend a visit if in the area, and tag on lunch/dinner in their delightful restaurant if possible. July 2022.
An absolutely fantastic tour! Our tour guide had so much passion and energy that really came through whilst talking to us all. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment! And the wines......... WOW..... We are officially blown away by them! July 2022.
Delicious lunch followed by fascinating tour of the winery and tasting. Our guide brought the whole story of Wiston alive and was so knowledgeable and entertaining. The tasting was the icing on the cake. A perfect way to spend a summer Saturday afternoon. July 2022.
