Shaker tie-in with WSET

UK bartending school Shaker has just launched its first WSET-affiliated course. The WSET Level 1 Foundation Certificate in Spirits has now been combined as part of the company’s five day International Bartenders Course or, alternatively, Shaker can offer a separate course focused exclusively on this qualification.

2009 also saw the company introduce its first molecular mixology course, teaching bartenders how to push their cocktail skills to the next level with techniques which verge very much on the Heston Blumenthal school of creativity. The inspiration spectrum here ranges from a simple dash of celery foam on top of a Bloody Mary, to a “Full English” porcini and bacon Martini and even a rum and mango-flavoured creation which arrives disguised as a soft boiled egg.

For a more tailor-made approach, Freeth also offers his services as a consultant for individual businesses.
