Presented online in an interactive way with ingredients and equipment delivered to your door.

Put the kids to bed and enjoy a couple of drams of delicious Whiskey.
Hosted by resident Whiskey lover Rion Heenan alongside special guest Linus Schaxmann from Brown Forman.
With over 25 years experience in international bars, the boy from Birmingham, Linus Schaxmann, is now recognized as a leading influencer in the Australian bar scene.
Linus cut his teeth in the UK cocktail bar scene before moving to Monte Carlo, spending a couple years bartending to the rich and famous before moving to London to work for TGI Friday’s, becoming a master bartender and opening new venues both locally and internationally for the group.
After moving to Australia with TGI Fridays Linus left the fold to run, develop and open cocktails bars, winning several notable cocktail competitions and gaining a reputation as one of the most innovative bartenders going around, trying new ideas and techniques and really pushing the envelope in cocktail creation.
Linus joined Brown-Forman 13 years ago and loves sharing his wealth of knowledge about their brands and cocktail making.
