‘If there’s one thing this pandemic has taught us so far, it’s that staying in touch with friends and family is so important...’

Two brothers who run a mobile bar company have launched virtual cocktail masterclas­ses in lockdown and can already count two Made In Chelsea stars among their customers.

The Egerton-based Thirsty Farrier, owned and run by Jon and Dan Trainer, launched in October 2019 but the pandemic arrived just a few months later and the pair had to reschedule or cancel their events.

With a third national lockdown, the brothers have now launched new online cocktail masterclas­ses, including a Valentine’s Day date night package.

They have delivered more than 300 cocktail kits and virtual cocktail experience­s to customers across the UK since launching in lockdown three – including to Made in Chelsea stars James Taylor and Maeva D’Ascanio.

Guests receive a full cocktail making kit before taking part in their class, with Dan and

Jon hosting virtually from The Thirsty Farrier’s horsebox bar.

Dan said: “If there’s one thing this pandemic has taught us so far, it’s that staying in touch with friends and family is so important in maintainin­g a positive outlook on life in lockdown.”

“With games, ice-breakers, and plenty of laughs, the classes help groups learn something new while bringing fun into the home – something that’s definitely needed at the moment.”

The virtual classes celebrate everything from birthdays to date nights and virtual gatherings with friends and family.

For Valentine’s Day, there is a date night package, giving couples the chance to still enjoy a fun romantic evening from home.

Classes cost from £20 to £65 per person – and can include all of the equipment, ingredient­s and garnishes needed to create four delicious cocktails.

Packages are sent in advance via contact-free delivery.
