Welcome & Introduction
An introduction to Teddy's Cocktail Class from Master Distiller, Shaun Ward
The botanicals included in our handcrafted premium gins make them perfect for mixing into a range of classic cocktails. I know how keen the Ludlow Dry Gin Tribe is to learn all about mixology and experiment with making cocktails at home. So we’ve teamed up with bartender Edward ‘Teddy’ Harris, a rising star in mixology, to provide a series of blogs to teach you about what you need to make cocktails at home, how to make them, and why this is the best way to do it. Throughout these blogs, Teddy has been kind enough to share with you some of his top mixology tips and some of his amazing bespoke recipes.
