Pretty cool set up in terms of being in the Trolley’d garage space but I think a sign out the front would be great we had a little difficulty finding the place. The course was great and super informative and our group really enjoyed it. Definitely would recommend for friends or date!

Chris is an absolute legend. Best cocktail making class to exist. He was very knowledgeable about everything to do with native plants and cocktail making. The venue was also super cool. We had 4 full cocktails which I thought was very generous. Highly recommend!!!!!

Class was excellent. The flavours of the house made alcohol were surprisingly outstanding. Overall impressed and would suggest to anyone hesitating to partake in this class to just do it as it was totally worth it.

Teacher was entertaining and professional atmosphere was fun and relaxed. Setting was retro warehouse, very creative recycling of ex-Ansett Australia gear. We learnt to make a nice mix of different cocktails in groups of 3-5 people per trolley. Ingredients were supplied, had to do a bit of walking around to other groups to get some missing bits.

Did the native ingredient cocktail making course, really well done. All equipment and ingredients were set up and ready, great organisation. The teacher, Chris, kept things moving at a good pace so there was enough time to do everything but no hanging around waiting.

There were only eight in the group so we had all the attention we needed. Chris demonstrated first then we got to make our own and they were yummy!

Class was awesome it is located in a warehouse decked out like a plane hanger! Random airline theme. Guy running the class was awesome super knowledgeable on native plants and drinks! We made 4 cocktails total, they were easy to make and absolutely delicious i loved all of them. Will say i thought we might learn how to make some of the liquor using native plants but apparently its quiet complex. Regardless had such a blast, great idea although a heads up we were definitely very on our way to drunk post 4 cocktails so I definitely wouldn’t drive. Fun class

Really enjoyed this fun class; ideal for beginners; affordable; nice relaxed atmosphere and a great use of native ingredients. All that was missing was a recipe sheet to take home as I couldn't remember all the ingredients and measurements after drinking the 4 cocktails we made.

Intimate small class of 9 participants. Everyone got to try shaking and mixing their own drinks. 4 drinks were taught and made. Chris was funny and easy to follow along and informative of the local native herbs and fruits.
Entrance was a bit tricky to find.

My girl friend and I had a great time with a unique class that emphasizes on using Australian ingredients. The host is friendly and very knowledgeable on all the ingredients we used and the history of where they came from. I would 10/10 recommend this class to my friends and return again for another class

I had the most insane cocktail class with Chris who took us through an amazing journey where we learnt how indigenous fruits and herbs were infused into various spirits thus leading to the creation of some amazing cocktails. I would definitely recommend this class to my friends as I’m sure they would have an amazing time

Great class...I really enjoyed it. Chris is a natural entertainer, friendly and knowledgeable. The venue is quirky and fun, and the class size (7) was perfect for engagement. We made four cocktails - all unusual and delicious. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it seemed to move so fast - I'm a 'girlie swot' by nature, so would have liked to take notes and dive into more discussion on the native ingredients, but the pace and set-up didn't seem conducive. I'd do it again though, and certainly recommend it to anyone!

I took my mate here for her birthday and we had an absolute blast. Chris was incredibly knowledgable on Australian botanicals, Indigenous Australian history and of course, taught us how to make great cocktails. Would highly recommend for any occasion, the venue is super quirky and a great place to make and sip on cocktails.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a fun and informative evening, and although I'm probably not going to go foraging for my own ingredients to make cocktails, I will no doubt appropriate some of the things I've learned about native flora to demonstrate how knowledgeable I am at dinner parties, should I ever be invited to a dinner party again

The most fun class to join, I've done a lot of workshops now and this one is by far the best! Chris is a champ and I loved the setting of the workshop completely decked out with old Ansett stuff it was amazing. Cocktails tasted great and I know now how to make my own delicious cocktails - woohooo! :D

This was so much fun! Chris was full of enthusiasm, the cocktails were AMAZING (if I do say so myself!) and I learnt so much about edible natives - some of which I already had in my garden!
This was a great girls day out. I'd recommend it for everyone!

Teacher greeted us in a Pilot's Uniform, the airline theme was fantastic. The warehouse had chairs and 'tables' comprised of old airplane seats and flight trolleys. Not even the hailing rain could ruin the experience.

Definitely attending their Kombucha classes later this year.

(Full disclosure my impressions might be a bit biased by the cocktails we made and drank)

Absolutely loved this class and would highly recommend, especially for group events! Everything from the quirkiness of the venue, to the delicious cocktails infused with native Aussie plants (with some growing right in their front yard). We also really appreciated the education and sustainability aspect of the class; the guys are super knowledgeable and hilarious.

Don't even think twice; just book it in!

We did this class for a hen's night and had a great time! Kind of hard to enjoy making and drinking cocktails though. The guys were great fun and we learnt a lot about Aussie native plants how to include them in our drinks. The cocktails themselves were delicious too!! Thanks for having us!

This was the perfect way to kickstart my sister's Hens party! Chris and Byron are really friendly and super fun. The location is a large warehouse-like flat with deconstructed aeroplane decor. Very Newtown-esque. The cocktails were also really tasty :) Would recommend!
