Nicola Gemmell Moir, GCW organiser, said: "Now more than ever, you want to seek out new experiences with your friends.

"That’s why we’ve created brand new interesting events, and our first ever line-up of GCW masterclasses that combine premium brands and beautiful cocktails in our stunning popup bar and events space in Princes Square.

"We’ll be bringing some of the UK’s most exciting drinks brands to the city centre, to invite cocktail lovers to learn more about classic serves, and potentially discover their new favourite cocktail. 

"These fun, interactive classes are the perfect way to mix things up for a totally unique day out in Glasgow, with limited spaces available.

"Plus, after the classes, guests can sit back and relax in the popup Courtyard Bar, enjoy our immersive setup, and get some great cocktails and pictures for the ‘gram.

"Don’t miss out - book your tickets now."

Glasgow Cocktail Week will take place from Friday, April 19 until Sunday, April 28.
