Last week I was back in La Ciotat to do a cocktails course with the interior crew of M/Y Nirvana
The week-long course included the WSET Spirits Level 1 exam and we spent time thoroughly covering the different spirits on board, how to serve them and their contribution to the different cocktails.
We also had a lot of time dealing with the different methodologies of cocktail making and covering not only the main classic cocktails but also how to modify them for more contemporary usage.
I love training yachties, they are very keen and they have a fantastic work ethic – particularly on the super yachts where their attention to detail is second-to none! In no time at all, they got to grips with shaking stirring, building, straining, muddling, pouting and throwing with the style and elegance one would expect in a luxury environment.
I offer cocktail and spirit training with WSET certification as part of bespoke packages. Courses can be tailored to last from 3-5 days and can be fitted in around the daily duties. Please contact me for more details.
