Shake & Stir
About the company
Setting up in early 2015, our goal was to create an artisanal cocktail company which provides a unique and unforgettable drinking experience to all our guests.
We believe that no event is too large or too small to justify ordinary drinks. Our constant quest for creating new, previously unseen and bespoke cocktails is our assurance that you and your guests will be treated to a fully personalised experience.
Networking workshops, Cocktail branding, Food/drinks pairing and our Cocktail Tasting Experience are just a few examples of our signature offering. Providing an all-round drinks service which includes our fantastic mixologist team, mobile bars, beautiful glassware and unique bar décor means that when the special day comes, all you need to do is relax and create some unforgettable memories.
Since we use a lot of fresh produce (local whenever possible and in season) while making our own juices, purees and syrups, we are trying to utilise the non-edible parts (Rinds, piths, zests etc.) as garnishes or for infusions. Whatever we cannot use, we compost and use as fertiliser for our 'herb garden'.
Regarding our events, we don't use any single use plastic and we recycle glassware, food waste and cardboard separately.
As we always say, we can cover anything between an intimate 10 people dining experience with drinks paired to every dish to a 1000 people corporate cocktail party. With the right preparation, you can achieve a top cocktail bar-like experience at events of all sizes and this is always our main goal.
It has to be our front of house team. Without their knowledge, charisma and energy we wouldn't be able to connect with our guests. They are the key to delivering our intended message via mixing up the perfect drinks while making you comfortable and feel completely at home.
Most events are special occasions for everyone attending and we have to treat them as such. Don't be afraid to push your boundaries if you want to achieve something unique and memorable. Nothing can top creativity.
We pride ourselves on our bespoke cocktail design which is one of the backbones of our business. We believe in the flavour-presentation-service trinity where all three aspects need to be flawless in order to achieve our desired effect. We never stop experimenting with new flavours and garnishes to make sure you have the best possible drink in hand.
We are lucky to have worked in some of London's most prestigious venues including the major museums, the Bloomberg Building, QEII Centre in Westminster just to name a few. Probably the standout is the Old Billingsgate Market due to its fantastic location and versatility.
