Mediterranean Aperitivo Masterclass

Our campaign will kick off with a number of masterclasses hosted by an aperitivo expert, followed by an entire week of activations for Mediterranean Aperitivo Week, due to take place between 23rd and 29th October.

The programme of masterclasses and events around the UK will begin in September in London, Southampton, Leeds and Edinburgh. They will be open for all UKBG members to register for and attend, and will include tastings, demonstrations and networking opportunities. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis however members can still attend the sessions via a live stream if all on-site places have been allocated.



The series of masterclasses kicks off on September 12th at Eataly, Bishopsgate EC2, and will be hosted by leading UK drinks developer, bartender and consultant Samuel Boulton will be leading a one-off Masterclass.

Samuel is prolific in his work to aid and better the lives of bartenders around the world. In 2021 Boulton published his book, The Vermouth Ambassadors guide to Modern Drinking. This book is a gateway for bartenders wanting to learn about Vermouth and its role in modern mixology.

Our second masterclass takes us further down south to the port city of Southampton and is hosted by the Director of Mixology Group, Myles Cunliffe which takes place at Rita’s Cocktail Bar on Oxford street on Wednesday September 13th. 
Myles has more than two decades of experience in the drinks industry across the UK and the US and has a particular passion for education.

On Tuesday October 3rd we head up north to the city of Leeds to Tabula Rasa on Tuesday October 3rd for a masterclass hosted by Filippos Filippopoulos.

Fillippos opened Tabula Rasa Aperitivo Bar in 2021 and is somewhat legendary in the world of the aperitivo. 

Scotland’s capital city is the final venue on our UK masterclass tour with the class led by Elon Soddu at award-winning Hey Palu on Wednesday October 4th. 

Elon is the co-founder of London’s Amaro Bar and boasts a stellar CV which includes The Savoy and The House of Ho.
As a UKBG member, you can attend any of these masterclasses events for free, featuring tastings, live demonstrations, and priceless networking opportunities. And if you cannot join us in person on the day, fear not, you can still join us via live streaming.
