Elementary Bar - Meet the guys behind the cocktails
Elementary Bar take place at Cutlery Works on Thursday 22nd October.
We caught up with the guys behind the event who are offering an experience unique to Sheffield.
On the 22nd we will be hosting a 4 course cocktail tasting menu with a mezze accompaniment for each course. The process of each course will be explained throughout the experience as we guide you through a showcase of Elementarys finest creations.
Working with a team of skilled chefs with Michelin backgrounds we have taken a cocktail menu concept and paired foods with complimentary flavour profiles, which in turn enhance the flavours of our drinks.
With the lockdown period we have taken this time to extensively research new methods, new products and brands that fit our ethos, as well as using the wealth of knowledge from chefs we have previously worked with and our past experience in the cocktail industry to select our ingredients. For example we have a recently been foraging for ingredients in our kombucha’s and syrups which has been an extremely interesting experience.
With Cutlery Works being an important hub for growing new independents in Sheffield we thought this would be the best place to start out as they have helped in incubating so many other start ups in Sheffield that have grown exponentially since their opening. We also saw the space in Pop Bar and thought it would be the perfect place for us to begin.
Unfortunately we have been impacted slightly by the pandemic as we offer a bespoke catering service for private events such as weddings and parties in which we provide a mini tasting menu format. So as you can imagine lots of weddings and parties over the summer season had to be moved to next year. But at least we still have this to look forward to!
Why should people come along to the event?
People should come along to our event because we know the people of Sheffield want something different, something new and out of the ordinary because Sheffield is the home of independents and we know they are just as bored of the same old generic cocktails that we began to dislike. Elementary want to provide the most unique and memorable evening with the most unimaginable creations and flavours known to the cocktail world.
