Chris showed us how to make some well thought out cocktails. The ingredients were really fresh and interesting and great that he provided locally sourced Australian ingredients.
Great night to celebrate two birthdays. Thanks Chris.

Anna Guilbert

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


The class was wonderful! On a rooftop garden that had a lovely backdrop of Sydney's sunset. It was a small intimate class of 9, including myself and my 2 besties for a birthday celebration. The teacher was incredibly talented and knowledgeable about his craft & ecology alcoholism (inside class joke but very suiting). Would definitely recommend to those that are starting out with the art of cocktails and getting into nature as well, to those that are already a master and looking for something fun to do!

Chloe Huang

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


We got to make 4 delicious cocktails on a beautiful rooftop in Kings Cross. We all took turns making the cocktails following detailed instructions, in a small class of about 7 people, with all of us standing around the mobile bar. It was a lot of fun, but also a lot of information to take in quickly - probably best for a social, fun event, instead of a truly in-depth educational 'class'. Still loved every bit of it!

Pickling and Fermentation workshop review by Sara Ormond

Livia Raj

Kombucha Making Workshop


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!

Maureen Cashman

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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


Giuliana Durighel

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Great vibe in the heart if Newtown. Cocktails made were amazing!
Loved the class but wish we could have a copy of the recipes for all the cocktails!


Monica Hook

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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!


Renee Curtis

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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


Vincent Ip

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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.

Larry Nguyen

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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)


Ailing Huang

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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!

If you could take away anything from this class, it’s that ecological alcoholism is the way to go! Chris introduced new flavours to the classic drinks, all sourced from our own backyard, with a message of sustainability and healthy dose of humour. The perfect cocktail for a great evening!

I gave this class as a present and my friend said it was an incredible experience 5 star

Thanks and will book one for myself very soon


Stuart

Kombucha Making Workshop


Chris was super knowledgeable about all things Kombucha! To say we learned a lot is an understatement!

It was fun and informative which is a novel thing these days, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend

The format took us a little by surprise so my only feedback for an even better experience would be to advise what to expect in advance :)

Would highly recommend even if you are just curious about the process

Go forth and Kombucha!


Michele Woods

Kombucha Making Workshop


A great concept, but feel the pace was to fast, for quite a complicated process to the Novice, or myself that had no idea how Kombucha is made. I suggest to any-one doing the class, to read up and be a little savvy about it before going
I came away confused about some of the steps and had to refer to
U Tube, which I should have done before going to the class.



Rhiain Ockerby

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


We had a great time making cocktails with Chris at the stunning Yerrabingin rooftop farm. He was super knowledgeable about the native ingredients and shared some excellent cocktail recipes that really championed the native flavours. An amazing way to spend an arvo.


Shirley Lu

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Chris was a fantastic instructor -- funny, energetic, knowledgeable. We made four cocktails from interesting ingredients. They were all delicious. Only downside was that the class felt a bit rushed. I would have appreciated a slower approach so that I could learn foundational concepts. Some were briefly covered ("strong versus weak, sweet versus sour", infusing flavours in all components) but deeper exploration would have been valuable. Location was incredible -- it was great to enjoy the four cocktails on the rooftop garden.


Emma Cooper-Southam

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Great teacher, lots of knowledge and funny. Cool native I tried ingredients and the drinks were amazing!


Rozalie Lakin

Kombucha Making Workshop


Liked the teacher. The venue was great. Rooftop garden was beautiful. The class was great. Chris was very knowledgeable and taught us well. We went home with our own Scoby and kombucha. I really recommend this class!


Sacha Cameron

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Great relaxed class with killer cocktails! We took the class here to start off our hens night and it was perfect! So enjoyable


Clare Lassam

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


What a fantastic class, Chris was so helpful, informative and fun, just the right amount of information and making drinks!
A perfect balance, much like the amazing cocktails we got to make, all of the girls loved them with quite a few stating they were the best they'd ever had.
The venue isn't in a bustling area but it's a great spot away from the noise with some awesome native plants to enjoy on a rooftop
Highly recommend


Dianne Bergen

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Lovely spot at the rooftop garden to mix and drink cocktails. The recipes and especially the making of the mixers was a tad rushed so you maybe don't walk away planning to make them yourself at home. The drinks were a good veriety and easily and enjoyably consumed. The additional visit by "Gardening Australia" celebrity, Clarence, with his knowledge of Aussie native flora was great.


Rob Medynski

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


this class was great! the teacher chris, was very friendly and very knowledgable. We made 4 cocktails each, which was the perfect amount. Chris prepared all the ingredients in advance and many of the syrups and infused alcohols clearly took a lot of prep time. great value. highly reccomended +++


Lisa Allan

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Had a great time in this class! Chris, our cocktail master, was hugely knowledgeable, peppering each of the four unique libations we created with the history of bartending and information on our local native plants and their flavours. He's a lovely bloke who made the two hours very fun and entertaining for myself and my bestie. Highly recommended!


Meenaatchi Saverimuttu

Kombucha Making Workshop


We Had a great time at this workshop! The instructor was great and really informative about the kombucha making process. We were so excited to take our scobys home and care for them! The kombucha we made in the workshop (which we left to carbonate for a week after the class) was SO DELICIOUS! So excited to keep making my own now that I have all the tricks of the trade!


Teresa Yu

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Super chill and very relaxed way to make cocktails. Unique ingredients that you can’t get anywhere else. Great introduction to cocktail making.


Ashleigh Longmore

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Excellent cocktail class! Very informative and lots of fun. We organised the class as a Father’s Day present and a great time was had by all. We learnt lots about native ingredients and how to use them in a modern twist. Chris was a bundle of fun and knowledge and was a wonderful host and teacher. Highly recommend this class surrounded by beautiful native plants on a gorgeous Sydney rooftop!


Kate Lahiff

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Teacher and materials were amazing! It was so much fun, we created incredible memories! Thanks heaps :)


Gabrielle Positti

Chris is extremely knowledgeable and the roof-top location is the perfect setting. I learnt a lot in the 2 hours and would highly recommend this class for any occasion! Great afternoon and great company!


Neisha Maguire

Simon Levett

Kombucha Making Workshop


The teacher was friendly and answered all my questions. Thanks for the written instructions. It would have also been good to have a Kambucha tasting!


Sarah Fish

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


This was the second time I’ve done the cocktail making class with Chris, because my boyfriend and I enjoyed it so much the first time! This time was at the new rooftop garden location and a group of 13 of us booked a private class. Chris was great as usual - so knowledgeable and really makes the class loads of fun. The cocktails are absolutely delicious, and so much better for the infusions Chris makes with the native plants. Chris is super accommodating and I’d highly recommend this class, either as part of the group classes or as a private booking - both experiences were brilliant. All 13 of us had a fantastic afternoon. Thanks Chris, we’ll probably be back for more at some point! :)


Megan Crambrook

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


So much fun and very educational! Think it would be great to turn this class into a podcast too - can learn everything from the Jurassic era through to botanica. Maybe something called ‘tippling tips’ or ‘cocktails with Chris’? Would thoroughly recommend!


Sam Ayling

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


This class was the perfect way to kick off a bucks party - casual, heaps of fun, delicious drinks and good vibes. Thanks heaps Chris!


Maria Clemente

Informative session with a cool teacher (and assistant). Highly recommended! We came a bunch of gals en route to hens dinner and it was so much fun to have a go at concocting those cocktails:)


Cameron Bestwick

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


This class was lots of fun. Chris was a funny and engaging teacher. We got to make a good variety of drinks and they tasted AMAZING!


Kate Fixter

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Chris was a wonderful teacher! Both engaging and intelligent he first demonstrated then encouraged us through making our own cocktails (x4), but also provided us with the skills to forage for our own natural ingredients in the neighbourhood to take our cocktails to the next level. This is a must do experience for anyone who wants both a fun night but to learn how to take cocktail making to the next level!


Felicity Kiernan

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


The class was good value. It was hands on with tasty results and interesting information


Annabel Larcombe

The class was an amazing experience. The venue was cute and quirky. Chris’s passion for cocktails was infectious, and his knowledge of botanicals was incredible. Highly recommend.


Lonie Pizarro

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Fantastic class! Started a little bit unconventional - the venue is down some back streets and is decked out like a budget airline, complete with half a plane. But the teacher was very knowledgeable and friendly, and the drinks were delicious. Would definitely recommend :)


Christopher Dixon

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


I had a great time and the class was great. There were great cocktails and a great atmosphere.

Grace Leung

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Very enjoyable class with a friendly & professional teacher - good knowledge of where to find ingredients. Venue was very interesting & original. Would definitely recommend for a fun friends/couples activity.


Heidi Wilcoxon

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Great afternoon! Innovative, native Australian twists on classic cocktails. Hands on and fun! Highly recommend.


Lareine Yeoh

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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.


Tamara Stanley

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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.


Jacqui Duncan

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


We loved our cocktail-making class. The teachers were super-knowledgable and made the class interesting and fun - and we loved the venue! Very cool. A great night was had by all. Thanks heaps.

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.

Elizabeth Kelaita

It was fantastic. Chris was fun and very informative. Awesome tidbits of info about Australian flora. Great tasting cocktails.
10 outta 10 would recommend.


Samantha Foster

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Great classI 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!


Casey Taylor

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


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.


Geoff Daniow

Shake Cocktails, with Native Ingredients


Great fun class and you get to enjoy what you make. Chris provided some laughs and a lot of tips about flavoring diffe

We booked this experience as a gift for some friends. They told us that the host was fantastic and the cocktails were great. There was however a change of location to what was originally advertised meaning they ended up at the hosts home instead. Th evening sounded fun however our friends were somewhat disappointed to not have the class at the rooftop farm as expected.

Loved the experience! The venue is funky and gives an amazing vibe! It’s fun and the host is fun and welcoming. It was a birthday gift and i went with a group of friends. We had the best time ever!

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

Astonishing experience Captain Chris ensured that the plane was in the air and the trip was made amazingly smooth by the wonderful, exotic and totally amazing cocktails. The concept of locally sourced products is inspired. The venue is simply fabulous. Must travel again soon

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 class was fantastic I got it for my family as a Christmas present and everyone enjoyed it. The venue was really cool done up like an airport hanger and the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable. I loved how they encoporated so many locally sourced natural products.

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!
