Join Lauren Mote, award-winning bartender, co-proprietor of Bittered Sling, and Diageo Reserve & World Class Global Cocktailian, to learn about the sensory perception of ‘bitter’.

This ubiquitous ingredient is highly regarded as one of the most important in a cocktail, as well as the ‘foil’ when used as an extract in baking and cooking. Bitters continue to fill the shelves of health food stores, grocery stores and pharmacies, attracting those interested in natural remedies and alternative medicine. A myriad of spirits that showcase the properties of "bitters" have also been available and enjoyed in cocktails for centuries.

This includes bitter barks like sarsaparilla, cinchona, dandelion and burdock; sweet roots like licorice and angelica; spices like cinnamon, black pepper and cardamom; fruits like cherries, plums, grapefruit and lemon; and fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary. Attendees of this master class will learn about the history and modernization of the bartender’s favourite modifier, enjoy comparative tastings and sample bitters-infused cocktails paired with small plates from the YEW team. All guests will take home recipes as well as the newly released Bittered Sling Bitters gift pack 3.0 (valued at $50).
