Leeds Liquor Studio – the only Spirit School in England – is fighting on through its second lockdown by supplying a host of creative gift ideas and treats delivered free to LS postcodes. With gift vouchers, gift packs, stylish cocktail packages, money off vouchers and unique blended gins there is a lot on offer from the small independent company.
“Our doors may be shut until December 3rd, but we will be back,” says co-founder Dan Crowther. “In the meantime, our online shop is up & running for gin, spiced rum, gift packs & gift vouchers - we ask the good people of Leeds to support us and fellow independents during this ridiculous year.”
On top of their usual offer, the team at Liquor Studio have launched five themed gift boxes that are ‘not just for Christmas’.
The themes are Champagne, Whiskey, Coffee, Spiced Rum and Gin & Tonic and each has more to offer than the theme suggests – alongside a bottle of the good stuff there are scented candles, grow your own botanical kits, chocolate tasting sticks, coffee beans and much more.
When not in lockdown, The Liquor Studio – which is above Hedonist Bar on Lower Briggate in Leeds City Centre – host successful Gin Creation Classes, G&T tasting sessions, Cocktail Masterclasses and Spiced Rum creations.
“You can still blend your own gin with us during this time,” says Dan. “Just go to our website and pick from a list of 30 botanicals, we’ll do the blending and deliver it to your door - and we keep the blend on file so you can reorder any time.
You can still enjoy our cocktails through lockdown too as we offer pre-made cocktails and stylish cocktail packs including Old Fashioned, Negroni, Espresso Martini, Manhattan, and Gin Martini; these make great gifts but are also a lovely treat for yourself. And don’t we all need a treat right now?”
