Exciting that you are keen to check out this event! Your host Shinyoung will be welcoming you at this secrete courtyard located inside St. Mary of Eton. She will be covering lots of interesting stuff, all free from empty calories, hangover and peer pressure ;-) The class is built to walk you through different flavours and techniques that you can easily replicate at home when you feel like something other than alcohol.

About your host, Social Beverages (Ministry of International Specialty Concoctions)
London-based Korean entrepreneur and mixologist, Shinyoung has opened a new pop-up bar called The Ministry of International Specialist Concoctions (M.I.S.C.) to offer Londoners globally inspired non-alcoholic drinks. Shinyoung's 10 years of travelling experience and creative & health-conscious mind are the foundation of the surprising and delicious drinks.
At the beautiful, secrete courtyard surrounded by greens and flowers, Shinyoung will walk you through the new and exciting world of alcohol-free drinks.
“What about Reserve, an outcome of double-fermentation, combining Kombucha with traditional Korean rice drink Shikhye? These are not just alternatives to alcohol – these drinks will take you on a journey of complex flavours from savoury bitterness to subtle florals. M.I.S.C. is committed to vegan and health-conscious ingredients. The drinks are created using techniques known to improve health benefits and flavour.”
This is a pop-up available until 2nd OctTools and drinks are provided - nothing to bring but just your curious self!
This is a non-alcoholic event but some of the drinks are potent with flavours (e.g. ginger, kimchi or other spices), thus it is not recommended to bring in kids.
