An intro to mixology.
Whisky tastings with a difference
Whisky has always been a passion of ours, so much so that we wanted to have our own as well as building a collection of some of our favourites from around the world. We also have a passion for cocktails here at Kenton Park Estate, one of the highlights of the year is opening up the bar for our Friday night pizza and cocktails!
We thought why not incorporate our passion for cocktails with our tours using the fantastic products we have and learning to make some of our absolute favourites that we serve in the Motley Cru Bar... Whisky based cocktails often do not get the plaudits they deserve and are severely overlooked, let us change that!
