Dive into a world of different and exciting botanicals and create your own, unique vermouth from the comfort of your own home. This virtual experience is ideal for those boozy buffs who love to explore new flavors in their favorite drinks.

This class can run in two different ways. The pre-infusion version of this class involves you selecting blends yourself and leaving them to steep for three days before the session begins. In the online class itself, you will learn how to filter and add caramel and wine to your vodka to complete its transformation into vermouth. This class is listed as the filtering class.

Or, if you would like some guidance, a friendly and experienced teacher can help you pick out the best flavors and guide you through the infusing process. You will then have to wait three days until your vermouth is ready to be used and follow an instruction guide to complete the filtering process on your own at a later date. This class is listed as the infusion class.

After these steps, both versions of the class will then learn how to make cocktails using vermouth. If your vermouth is steeped and filtered, you will be using that homemade spirit in the cocktail making process. If you have only just started the infusion, then you will need to bring along storebought vermouth to make the drinks.

Spice up your date night at home or a remote birthday party by getting creative with botanicals and vodka. This virtual experience awakens your tastebuds to help you find a new appreciation for this interesting beverage. A craft kit full of useful ingredients will be sent to your door.

High Desert Botanicals is a small shop founded by Janel Johnson and Reese Tietje that makes cocktail bitters. When they began their journey they had no luck finding ingredients like milk thistle seeds and burdock root at their local supermarkets and could only buy in bulk from wholesale companies online.

They considered there might be others out there who want to experiment with the fun of making their own cocktail ingredients but also would struggle to find smaller batches of tricky botanicals. So, they decided to sell kits and put on classes to make this fun activity accessible to all.

Join Janel and Reese as they share the joy of making tonics, gin, vermouth, and more! Use them in refreshing cocktails and take your tastebuds on an amazing journey using ingredients you never dreamed you could make at home!
