Craft Amazing Cocktails and Become the Life of the Party

Learn the Fundamentals of Mixology and 15 Classic Just 12 Days

Learning mixology isn’t about life or death.

It’s not going to save you if you’re getting pursued by a hungry bear in the wilderness. It won’t provide a softer landing when you’re skydiving and your 'chute doesn’t open.

No, learning about cocktails is not about survival. It’s about living richly.

Savvy Men Realize Drinking Well is
About the Journey, Not the Destination

There’s a reason that so many successful business deals and love affairs start over drinks.

It’s because sharing a drink together isn’t about drinking, it’s about sharing a moment. Stopping for a second to appreciate your surroundings…to listen to the ice clink in your glass…to give your full undivided attention to someone for a few precious minutes.

When you invest in learning more about cocktails, you’re not just learning a technical skill. It becomes a social bridge. Not only do you gain the ability to create cocktails on your own, but it gives you a new way to connect with other people.

Learning the craft of making and enjoying cocktails forces you to slow down and appreciate the details…the journey.

And frankly, when you know more about drinks, it just makes you a more interesting person to hang out with…

My Approach to Learning About Cocktails

Kyle Ingham Headshot 300

Hi, my name is Kyle Ingham, and I run a website called The Distilled Man, which features articles and videos on essential "gentlemanly" skills every man should know.

I’m the author of an ebook called 48-Hour Gentleman: Your One-Weekend Plan to More Confidence, Poise, and Manly Know-How. I’m also a regular contributor to men's lifestyle blogs and podcasts. 

Being a well-rounded gentleman involves many skills, but I've always been passionate about cocktails. I’ve spent years researching cocktails and talking to mixologists…and well, I’ve probably consumed more than my fair share of drinks. 

But I also approach drinks in a different way: I don’t get hung up on specific liquor brands or fancy gear. For me, the best approach is to go beyond recipes to understand the fundamental concepts behind making great cocktails. And that's exactly what we cover in the course.
