Artisans of Mixology*
Conquer your bitters, master your mixes. And ace them all.
History & Tradition
From prohibition to piña colada
What is mixology? When was the first cocktail ever made? And how come the people on that picture look so happy? Starting with the ten basic cocktails, as stated by Jerry Thomas in his "Bar-Tender's Guide or How to Mix Drinks" from 1862 Hamilton/Frisk's artisans take pride in following mixology and its development into our day. Depending on the level you wish to conquer, we are happy to arrange a lecture, a workshop, a course, a tasting or any combo thereof.
Non-Alcoholic & Vegan
Go healthy with superb alternatives
Not only are they healthier - they are also heavenly in taste, sublime in beauty and kind on your finances! The artisans of Hamilton/Frisk proudly present our non-alcoholic alternatives, all vegan and sustainably produced in collaboration with local farmers where possible. Equally popular among toddlers as teenagers, grandparents and health profiles. Want to mix your own mocktail or try a few alternatives out before you decide? Book a workshop or a tasting!
Tools & Mixing Techniques
Shaking, blending, stirring those sticks
Building, shaking, stirring, blending, dripping, frizzing and finally sipping it! Ah yes. Cocktails and the art of mixology is in the very blood running through Hamilton/Frisk's veins and it is our pleasure to share our passion and knowledge with you - professionals and amateurs alike. Get down to business with a proper Boston shaker, tweak that absinth spoon, hold that julep strainer tight and be sure to maneuvre your ice stick as you should. Get in touch.
Bottles, decanters, glasses and cups
Your choice of glassware is almost as important as your components whether making a cocktail or sipping a fine wine. Luckily, this too happens to be our passion at Hamilton/Frisk. So tie that apron in the back and let's take you through the crystal jungle of Collins glasses, Nick and Noras, coupettes, tumblers and hurricanes. And that's just the cocktail glasses! We offer lectures, workshops, courses and consultations as well as bespoke connections with glassware suppliers.
