The Leeds venture is adding spiced rum and whisky to its gin offering making it England's only 'spirit school'
Founded by Jon Lee and Dan Crowther, The Liquor Studio has previously hosted Gin Creation Classes, where visitors create and take home their own 500ml bespoke bottle of gin, as well as G&T Tasting Sessions and Cocktail Masterclasses.
Come October 2020, spiced rum classes will be introduced, while 2021 will see the addition of whisky activities.
'Gin continues to be a much-loved spirit,' explained Lee. 'We love working with it, but venturing further into the spirit world is really exciting for us – we’re pretty proud to become the only one of our kind in the country.'
For Crowther: 'The Spiced Rum Classes will have the same feel as the Gin Creation Classes. You will be greeted with a rum cocktail and sample various expressions, learn more about its raucous history, choose how you want to flavour, blend it, and take your own bespoke rum home with you. We even keep your blend on our records so you can reorder any time.'
Spiced Rum Creation Classes (£79.95 per person/£130 for two) will start on Wednesday 7 October and will run four days a week. It includes unlimited rum and gingers, rum tasting samples and 500ml bottle of bespoke spiced rum to talk home.
The Liquor Studio is above Hedonist Bar on Lower Briggate in Leeds City Centre.
