I can highly recommend the Mixology Group. I attended the Beginners Cocktail course and it was everything I hoped it would be. I looked into a lot of different types of Cocktail ‘masterclasses’ but most seemed to be a 1/2 hr fun experience where you learn a cocktail or 2 and get drunk. And i’m sure they are all fun but I was looking for something a bit more thorough where I would really learn some cocktail skills. This was definitely the right course for that. Over 6 hours of instruction, with loads of practical chances to get behind the bar. Myles is a brilliant teacher, he knows his stuff and is passionate about cocktails but also makes it funny and has some good stories to tell. His theory behind teaching you the concept behind each drink rather than individual specific recipes is great, you learn the confidence to make the drinks but also then experiment at home. We tasted loads of different spirits and there were more cocktails than we could actually drink – how sad to see some of them go to waste! But Myles didn’t clock watch and the drinks flowed, I had to rush off as the course was still going half an hour past the finish time. Thank you Myles
Jamie – Intro Course
I just wanted to pop you a line to thank you so much for all your help with the Cocktail Bar on 11th. The mixologists were amazing and the cocktails were fantastic – as you can imagine, they went down amazingly well and everyone has raved about them.
Your help and advice was gratefully received and contributed to a really successful and memorable evening, so thankyou again for helping to make the evening so special.

I am writing to express my thanks and delight for the wonderful cocktail event we had this weekend. ‘G’ was truly exceptional with the perfect blend of information and humour. We had a absolute ball! The best event by far! Please could you pass our sincere thanks onto him and your team for such a great event
Just wanted to say thank you for a truly informative and well taught class. Myles was very enthusiastic and inspiring. A brilliant introduction to Mixology, which will be well used behind my bar.
We have been working with Mixology Group since 2015. During that time, they have created cocktail menus for all 5 of our venue’s, designed and implemented a bespoke ongoing training program, created a YouTube channel and shot videos to support our continual staff training, consulted on and supported with staff for the launch of all of the cocktail menus and have supplied us with support staff regularly.
We have always found Mixology Group to give 100% to our brand, they have been creative in their training therefore aiding us to get the most from our staff by creating confidence behind the bar within them. And over a 3-year period they have never let us down with event staff, who are always suited to our venue.
We would highly recommend working with Mixology Group and hope that our relationship continues with them into the future.
I just wanted to say thank you to you and everyone at Mixology Group, and especially to Gee, for providing such a fantastic experience. He was very good, knowledgeable, and really approachable. It was a really perfect evening – many many thanks
Hi Zoe and team
I just wanted to pass on my, and the company’s, thanks for your team’s great support at the event on Friday.
It was a great success, your boys did a sterling job and I think over-exceeded the number of cocktails which were expected to be made.
Needless to say we will keep you on speed dial for any future outdoor events as the service, set up and management was excellent.
Having a cocktail barman at my 40th birthday party was really fantastic. It made it a really special evening and everyone loved it – even those people I thought would drink beer. Our barman, Charlie, was charismatic but very professional and, of course, made excellent cocktails. In fact all the staff at Mixology were great to deal with. I would definitely recommend them.
All the guys, led by Tim, were truly great. Good attitude, good service. Very happy indeed that you were recommended to me – caterers, your team and the band all led to a superb night and lots of people commented on the brilliant cocktails. You’re onto a winner
Thank you so much for your services for my party. It went down really well and everybody I have spoken to loved the cocktails and you! I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my clients. I was very impressed with your professionalism and service style.
Thank you so much for providing a unique team building experience. We had a lot of fun in our Molecular Masterclass and learned a lot too. You were very accommodating – we wish we could have stayed another two hours!

Thank you so much for making my 40th such an amazing night. The bar was fantastic and a real talking point. Myles was really helpful with the planning giving lots of advice, and was very flexible. On the night he was brilliant, professional and so tolerant! The set up and clean up was really quick and efficient and I would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking about doing something similar for a party.

Mixology Group has chosen to work with Meiko glasswashers to cater for its increasingly popular drinks and bar training courses.
The Group runs approved and accredited courses in Brighton and also travels to provide training in cocktails and mixology, molecular mixology and bartenders certification.
Myles Cunliffe, director, Mixology Group, said that the growing trend for cocktails is reaching a new high, with more attention being paid to the provenance of drinks and the education of service staff.
“I work with the best and I want to show my students the best as well. In my opinion Meiko is the ‘best’ when it comes to glasswashing machinery,” he explains.
