Shipping in the UK is free, and you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. We ship nationwide. International shipping is also available for private groups, please enquire for pricing details. You must be 18+ years old to purchase this Box.

During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

Welcome to The Bar From Afar, the only virtual bar set up by the very best bartenders in the UK, if not the world.

Learn how to make three cocktails at home whilst having fun. Your expert bartender and teacher will help you mix your drinks and give you some great home hacks to mixing great drinks whilst the pubs are closed. Everything you need will be sent to you in your cocktail kit (see below).

This live online class is perfect for a group of friends celebrating a special event, or staff looking for fun virtual team building activities. Boxes can be shipped all over the UK and much much further afield.

Our team of bartenders have been mixing cocktails professionally since 2003, initially mixing drinks in people's homes and gardens, entertaining on a small and entertaining scale. Everything exploded with the launch of our website in 2005 and since then we've been shaking our stuff and teaching cocktail enthusiasts how to make cocktails, from small groups of hen parties, all the way through to entertaining corporate away-days of over 200 delegates.

Since 2020, we've taken our offering online, which, paired with our penchant for tech and our love of teaching, we created The Bar From Afar, a place for groups to get together and have fun with drinks as a group again, whether it be for a work's Christmas party, or a birthday of close friends desperate to see each other and have a bit of a boogie at the same time.

With us, you won't just be taught how to make some drinks, and we won't drone on about the intricacies of gin variants or the differences between Russian and Polish vodkas. Instead, we want to have fun with you - we miss making drinks face to face! We want to bring the fun of visiting a bar direct to you at home.

Nice mix of chat and useful info. Really good knowledge of spirits and mixers. Great to be able to ask for tips and advice, as well as suggestions for other good cocktail ideas.
A real love and enthusiasm for the subject came through. Very relaxed and great fun - though the alcohol helps with that of course. people were still on line 2 hours after our session ended!

Emma Ely-Johnston May 2021


Great fun and a brilliant virtual party option - everyone enjoyed it and loved the cocktails. Great that there is a mocktail option too

Alex Sullivan Apr 2021


Brilliant class and really enjoyed the experience ! Lewis our bartender was excellent, would highly recommend to anyone

Catia Esperanca Apr 2021


I really enjoyed it. Lewis was funny, friendly and very patient. I learned a lot. I thought it was going to be a 'get in, here are the cocktails and get out' kind of session but it was very engaging. I especially enjoyed the tour around where it was being filmed and the dance at the end!

Catherine Harrison Apr 2021


We had an excellent night, great host and amazing cocktails - I'm going to recommend to everyone

Really personable, was able to connect with the group and “read the room” really well - must be very difficult to do virtually! Good tech and cocktails were delicious too. Thank you.

Had so much fun - the bartender was a great laugh and entertained everyone despite the awkwardness of it being over zoom! The cocktails tasted delicious too. Good value for money given you’d probably pay £45 for three cocktails in a bar! (And you don’t get a free cocktail shaker & mixology skills thrown in!)

Cocktail workshop review by Viola Levy Sydney

Holly Adams Mar 2021


Really great session, lots of engagement and good knowledge and tips! Thanks so much, really enjoyed it!

Jack Woodcock Mar 2021

No boo's from me.

It will definitely cure what ales you.
Lewis is a great spirit.
I wish I had more to say but I have quite a limited vodkabulary.
10/10. A+

Alicia Hindhaugh Mar 2021


Really enjoyed cocktail making & Lewis was a great host!

Luke Daykin Mar 2021


Just a great experience, Lewis really knows his stuff, has the all knowledge, history and advice you could want from a bartender. Was really impressed by his presenting skills and how he handled a large group of people. This was my first online experience (outside of friends) and I was a little sceptical of how it’d work smoothly, but I was proven wrong! Cheers Lewis!

Hillary Wright Mar 2021


Lewis did a great job, fun informative and delicious cocktails - I would highly recommend! Perfect for a Friday night.

Sophie Marshall Mar 2021


Really good, knowledgeable barman, friendly atmosphere and some great cocktails. Great time had by all

Amelia Goodwin Mar 2021


Highly recommend! Everything about it was fantastic - communication around booking, arranging for delivery of the kits, the kits themselves and of course, the cocktails. I arranged this for a team of 30 and Lewis was great at trying to involve everyone/get a discussion going (which can be difficult when everyone is worried of talking over each other). The feedback from the team has been brilliant. Would definitely book again.

Jayne Nethersole Feb 2021


Our bartender Lewis was very knowledgeable on the cocktails we made and any others we asked about - history, trivia, how to make them. Great evening with friends and strangers, almost as good as a night in the pub!

Sarah Atkinson Feb 2021


Lewis was great! Knowledgeable, fun and engaging. A good evening and nice to see other people!

Jemma Phillips Feb 2021


Really enjoyed the class. The whole pub experience was very clever and Liam was really inclusive. I thought the box of items was perfect no need to buy anything additional (except maybe a martini glass!). I would definitely book this again and will look into doing a private class as well. Really enjoyed it!

Lewis was awesome - sociable and really helpful! We had been looking forward to this class so much and it really was worth the dollar. We enjoyed ourselves so much and got the wee buzz we have missed!
Thanks so so much, Lewis!
