Hey Newcastle Bartender Legends,
It’s hard to argue that water while being critical to our survival contributes so much more to life and our industry than we care to think, from spirits production or playing an integral role balancing flavours in tasty cocktails!
In the US, before the birth of the cocktail and other mixed drinks, it was common to enjoy the simple & delicious delights of quality Bourbon mixed with pure still water…in a drink affectionately known as Bourbon & Branch.
Have you ever wondered if your water was hard or soft? What is reverse osmosis water, or are minerals a must? Well?
Come and wet your whistle at the next Campari Academy training program for 2021 – BOURBON & BRANCH as we look at the most important facilitator of life & flavour; water.
We’ll check out the several types of drinking water we consume daily while specifically looking at the influence and contribution of water in the production of American Whiskey, while tasting our favourite WILD TURKEY Bourbon.
We’ll also flow through the history of water and ice in cocktails and when to apply different types of water (or ice) for the best outcome.
As always, we hope our program sparks your curiosity for this wonderful world and inspires you to start your new adventure behind and beyond the bar!
Date: Monday June 7th
Where: Blue Kahunas, Newcastle
Time: 2 – 4pm
