The country’s best bartenders often share a couple of traits: they’re restlessly creative and they are innovative in the way they approach what they do. Those are also traits shared by Lesley Gracie, the master distiller behind Hendrick’s — and you’ve got a chance to pick her brain when she comes to Sydney Bar Week for a one of a kind masterclass.
But be warned: spaces to the tasting are going quick, and there’s just 15 left. Make sure you email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP ASAP.
At the workshop, bartenders will taste through a number of Lesley’s experiments and innovations with a number of liquids never before tasted, let alone in Australia. Throughout, Lesley will speak of creating connections between liquids, developing concepts to reality and manipulating the perception of texture as she builds flavours together to create award winning combinations.
Looking at this process and the results of her innovations past, present and future, bartenders will learn how her insights can help inform the creative process that happens in their own bars.
All of this, combined with the opportunity to pick the brain of one of the world’s innovative master distillers, makes this an opportunity not be to missed.
