Looking for a career change and armed with a business plan, I took a leap and enrolled in Alchemy’s bartending course. Even if bartending isn’t your end goal, this course is a blast! For industry veterans or newbies, it’s a must-do. The key is to keep learning from everyone, from the dishwasher to the owner. My instructors, Costas Nicolaides and Kristian Gyokeres, were amazing. Knowledgeable, passionate, and up-to-date on trends, they truly shared their expertise. The course sparked my love for bartending. Over 3 months, I realized it’s an art form, a far cry from the days of just whisky cokes and vodka cranberries. I give them a 5-star rating! As a complete beginner, I learned proper fundamentals: handling glassware, cocktail techniques, ice handling, even how to make a perfect Mojito.

I recently took a bartending course to improve my cocktail and spirit knowledge, and develop my bartending skills. The course served as a fantastic introduction to the world of bartending, giving me a solid foundation in current techniques, cocktails, and spirit trends. The instructors were incredibly knowledgeable and kept the content up-to-date. Most importantly, the course helped me land new bartending opportunities at my current company, where I also work as a Spirits Specialist.

Is this program suitable for complete beginners?
The course is designed for people who have no experience behind the bar whatsoever. You will learn everything from scratch and develop a complete bartending skillset before you set foot behind a bar.
Is this program suitable for me if I'm not a beginner?
Even if you have some basic bartending experience, you will greatly benefit from this course. It’s perfect for novice bartenders and servers who want to fully develop their product knowledge and improve their level in bartending & mixology.
Is this program suitable for me if I just want to make cocktails for fun?
If you are just a cocktail enthusiast and generally interested about alcohol, its production, and everything that’s behind a good drink, you will enjoy this course from start to finish. You will get a better understanding about each spirit category (how rum is made; why tequila can be made only in Mexico; what’s the difference between single malt and single cask whiskey; or what’s the difference between different styles of gin), as well as production of wines and beers. After completing the course you’ll be able to order and enjoy any kind of drink with a new level of appreciation, as well as mix any classic cocktail at your next house cocktail party!
How is the content of the course delivered?
When you enroll in the program, you’ll get immediate access to the training on our e-learning platform. You simply login to your account where you can see all the courses you have purchased. Open one of them and start learning. Each course is divided into modules for a better structure, and quizzes at the end of each module to track your progress. The classes are designed to teach you theory and principles first, giving you the tools to making cocktails. The content is a combination of text, graphics, printable study notes, and short videos where needed.
How long can I access the course?
You have a lifetime access to the course! It’s yours to keep and come back to it whenever you need to refresh your memory or get an inspiration for your new cocktail creations.
Will I receive a course certificate?
After completing the course, you will be able to download a printable certificate by Alchemy Bartending School from your membership account.

Each module includes a test based on the main learning objectives of the subject. To obtain the certificate, you must complete each lesson of the course and pass the exams with a minimum score of 70%. You have the option to re-take each test with 10% points total cut.
How long does the course take to finish?
It's best to take the course at your own pace. But we recommend going through 2-3 modules per week and finish the entire program in 4-5 weeks, so you have enough time to digest all the new information and combine it with practice. It’s rated at 33 hours.
Do I need a bartending kit to practice?
To get the most out of this course, we recommend adding a bartending kit that includes all the tools you will need, such as shaker, jigger, bar spoon, cocktail strainers, free-flow pourers, and mixing glass (Premium Set). You can purchase our complete sets – Starter Set or Premium Set at a discount when you enroll in the course. You can complete your package with a hard copy of the Course Textbook, and Cocktail Book in practical A5 format that you can keep behind the bar.
